The fact that Big Blind and Big Bet have the same acronym is really confusing :S

or you can cashout from one poker room to use the bonus deposit match available in another room. Just leave some in the first pokerroom to make sure you qualify for subsequent bonus offers.

then get a brutal downswing at the other site you just deposited to get the first deposit bonus
