      Hey all,

      I made my first deposit, and now i got to clear that bonus which I have til December to clear, but the day after I got sent a 2nd $50 bonus which expires on the 31st of September. Silly me didn’t realize that you can switch the bonus around, so I switched the around today but I’m trying to work out the best possible way to clear it since I’ve already used 15 days of this month. My thought process is to move down to NL2 and Multi Table because I don’t feel comfortable Multi Tabling NL4.

      Any ideas?

      Hi BigAl123456,

      As you have written already you can switch the order of the bonuses. So you should first clear the one which expires on the end of September.

      If you want to play on NL2 you need to play twice as many tables as on NL4. Otherwise there is no reason to go down, because you would earn more PartyPoints on NL4.

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      Well after playing about 24 hrs straight realized what I thought was the Bonus but no it turns out you need 80 points per $10 so I have wasted $30 to make $10.... Thanks Party Poker for making thing clear! X(

      Thats not good, but bonus whoring on nl2 ? is that even possible if u dont play a gazzilion of hands?

      and btw why do peopel do this mistake over and over and over again, they play for the bonus they open more table they arent comfortable with and when they cleared the bonus they are down more than the bonus is lol...

      My tip play ur A game al the time and let the bonus come naturally.

      Yes ill note this for next time, my thought process is that as long as I don’t lose $50 I make a profit.

      The thing I can take away from this is that I can feel comfortable playing NL2.

      I am also really close to Gold status and the elephant licence which I'm happy about.
