Hi, I'm thinking about signing up for your offer but I'm just wondering about the 125 raked hand requirement. Does that mean that you can just sit in on 125 raked hands or is it that you have to actually bet in 125 hands (which would take quite a bit longer)? Also, do sit and go tournaments count for anything?

Thanks,
Rob

I've been waiting for someone to ask that question so I could respond! A raked hand is any hand where the house takes a percentage of the pot. The least amount Party Poker will take is $0.50. The pot has to reach at least $5.00 for this to happen. You also have to be in the hand and see the flop to qualify. You have to play 125 such hands to qualify for the bonus. So on a .50/1.00 game, the pot may not hit $5.00 and therefore would not be considered a "raked hand". Let me know if that clears things up.

It takes the average player about 4-5 hours to hit 125 raked hands on a .50/1.00 table and 3 hours or less at any other limit.

Do you mind me asking what limit you were playing?

Maybe, but I don't like not knowing who I'm playing against at a NL ring table. The value of money could mean nothing to them, which means they can stay in hands and chase straights and flushes while giving you a bad beat.

Too much of a chance to lose all your money on one hand.
