Hint? I see it posted on the home page now. Gotta hurry up and get my bonuses for TGC first now. I guess I know what I'm doing for the next couple months or so :lol:

Hint... it will be starting Aug 15th or Sept 1st. Just to let you know it is looking more like Sept 1st. The really want to start it at the beginning of a calendar month.

KKK? Klu Klux Klan? A free white sheet with holes cut in it?

Can anyone tell me what the big deal is with the KEM cards? What is it that I'm not getting? What's the big deal?

Hey Mike, do you think the 35% sign-up bonus is still going to be running. I saw that was their July special so I jumped on it on the 31st....I will have to hit R.V. again for the FFP, or try to catch beastie at G.C. which looks impossible!

Edit to say to get my KEM cards...

I think they will still be running the 35% in September. I will find out and let everyone know.

I was searching the Absolute website for an answer, but I couldn't find one, so I'll ask:

What qualifies as a raked hand? Is it like Party, where you just have to be sitting at the table, or is it like Prima, where you have to actually put money in the pot? I did see that the rake has to be $0.25 to count.

Looks like it will take a while to get a bonus. 100 raked hands for every $10 of bonus, doled out $10 at a time. You do get credit for tournaments, though.

I've been playing at Absolute for about a year.

Their raked hand requirement is the same as Party. As long as the pot hits $5, it's raked. You get credit for the hand whether or not you put $ in. They also keep a running (real-time) total on the number of qualified hands you've played, which makes it real simple to keep track of your hands.

Nice. I guess I'll have to make my money last at Royal Vegas so I'll have some for the Absolute promotion. I had grown my $100 deposit to $202, but I've had a miserable week and I'm down to $167. I know, I'm a pretty low stakes guy right now, but with my bankroll, that's a bit of a swing. I'd love to climb above that $200 for good.

Atleast Absolute is not part of the Prima Network. I really really hate the Prima software....
