      like ages ago when i got my free 50 on mansion poker i did clear it eventually... but only a few installments of the 100 dollar bonus but then the bonus expired!

      it is doable but you need to put a bit of volume in and also keep on studying and learning because then you become a better player... then you earn more... then you move up limits... then you earn points faster.... ETC! :s_cool: good luck

      +1 for wowadvisor's post.

      I cleared mine about 15 months ago, playing Fixed Limit on Titan. Managed to clear the whole lot before expiry playing up to 15k hands per month.

      It should be probable to clear using all variants on most platforms with sufficient study and volume.

      In the past the iPoker sites have provided the best opportunity to clear the bonuses (ie Titan, Mansion, Bet365, BetFred).

      Not sure if this is still the case but it is pretty likely.

      Good luck. :f_thumbsup:

      I managed to clear 50$ at party poker.. but that was before they changed points for hands values...

      i managed to clear 25$ of the 100$ one too, then i just quit playing in party poker.

      You need to dedicate about 4 hours a day, 5 days per week, playing around 4 tables in order to clear this bonus at most of the starting sites. The trick is to not get behind and catch up on weekends if you had a busy week. Also use some kind of spreadsheet program to track your progress so you know how long its taking you to clear.

      If you don't have that kind of free time then it might not be doable. It really does take a bit of volume.

      For me, i had plenty of time at home so clearing the $50 bonus was not a problem. You just have to make a mental calculation on how many points you need per day and just stick to it as much as possible, then if you got some more free time, just go above that amount in case you can't play that much on other days. unfortunely, by the time i registered, they no longer had the $100 bonus for me to clear, :( Instead, i got lucky and party gave me a $25 bonus to clear, i cleared the first installment of 200 points for $12.5 and i'm trying to clear the second part right now, :p

      When I registered it was the old old system on Partypoker and I cleared the $50 starting capital plus the $100 bonus after I finished clearing that.

      I did come dangerously close to losing it at one point though, balance went down to a fraction under $20 If I remember correctly.
