New site

29 01 2011

After my recent scores on Absolute, I decided to cash out $1,000.  I was looking around and found a 100% first time deposit bonus up to $500 for a site called RPM poker, on the Merge network.  I decided to deposit the full $500 to try and take advantage of the full bonus.  I have until March 31 to clear the bonus.  I don’t think I will be able to clear all $500, but luckily it is released in $10 increments.  I need to clear 37,500 VIP points to unlock the full bonus.  On their site, for every $1 you pay in rake, you earn 10 VIP points.  After crunching some numbers, I will need to pay $3,750 in rake to earn the full bonus.  With the small traffic on the site, I’m hoping to clear at least $300 of the bonus, which means earning 22,500 points(paying $2,250 in rake).  As long as I can at least break even playing over the next two months or so, paying that in rake, will earn me an additional $787.50 in rakeback, so I would make almost $1,100 on top of any profit or loss in that time.

Tonight was my first session, I played for just under two hours.  I played a little bit of everything, some .25/.50 NL Holdem, some .10/.25 PL Omaha, some $10+.80 double up sngs, and some $10+1 super turbo sngs.  Below are my results

Sit n gos: -$16.00

50NL: +$71.66

25PL omaha: +$49.59

Overall so far, I find the Merge network to be pretty soft.  I probably would have shown a profit for sngs tonight but lost with KK to AK twice, once on the bubble.  Hopefully I continue to run decent on this site on my quest to clear the $500 bonus.
