      As you may or may not know, bet365 is running a promotion called 2,500,000 Points Race.
      More info here:LINK

      The reason why I am posting this is, because I'm currently at 6th place :)



      As you can see I'm only 2 points behind 5th place and this promotion (first part) ends today. Yesterday I was 10 points behind.
      5th place is worth 87,500 Merit Points, which is same as 1181$ if I buy 1350$ Cash Bonus (100k MP), or even +1300$ if I wait for 3k$ bonus (200k MP), which I probably will.

      First day I was at 17th place (84 points), second day at 19th place (82 points), third day at 6th place (95 points), yesterday at 8th place (93 points).
      So wish me luck grinding today :D

      I got +~100$ with spamming there :D

      Yesterday was my biggest grinding day ever. And I'm not doing Opal™ ever again.
      Played about 4-5k hands on 1/2 and 2/4. Played until 3AM (1AM GMT), just to be sure :P You never know when this sites make points update :)

      Results are already in, yesterday I was 6th with 95 points and in overall I finished... 5th! :)

      I will be awarded 87,500 MP. In a month or two I'll buy 200k MP bonus of 3000$, so this is same as 1312,5$. Not bad for 5 days of work/torture :) (Have to point out that I've lost some money during this, but anyway). And like I said, I wouldn't do it again :)



      Race Two: 25th – 29th August
      Good luck :P

      oh come on! Don't tell me it wasn't fun .. I feel like I'm doing something terrible now :f_frown:

      I played with you few hands yesterday and 40% of all setups and coolers happened at your tables - any explanation for this? ;)

      lol Waiboy :)
      I'd rather get brain massage tbh :)

      Opal, you're not playing for this race?

      I'm hoping for 50th place in this week's race. That would bring me ~6k points = few days less playing at bet365 :f_biggrin:

      I was.. But had problem with Neteller so deposit only ~$1700 and lost more than 1000 in 3 hours.... Mansion's withdrawals speed sucks too much so I didn't have enough money to grind; sad but true. In fact, I wasnt bad after first day, even I didn't play more than 30-40% of what I was aiming for.

      So, lost the chance to get 4k and wasted another 1k :s_evil:
