One of the bookmakers that offers high rakeback is betsson. Depending on your player status you get between 8% – 40% in value back. The value back is paid in bonus money and are useful in special campaigns. Visit betsson and read more details about the rakeback system in the ongame network.
At the ongame network there is often so called rake races that lasts for a week or a month. During these rake races you collect points while you play at selected games (i.e. Cash Games), and the players that collects the most points during the race period are awarded with prize money.
Until recently you played with dollar in the ongame network, but now I think you can use euro in the ongame poker network regardless of where you play.
But of course the rakeback system isn´t all that makes you decide where you want to play. You also want to play at a pokersite with a lot of traffic and with a good range of games that you are interested in. The best thing is to combine all these criterions and other criterions you may have when you search for a pokersite that suits you.
For me it´s for example very important with fast fold poker and that you can get in touch with the support 24/7. I feel much more safe when I know that I can get help around the clock. But more about my requests of pokersites in another blog post. I shall soon play a small online tournament and I must make coffee and sandwiches before that. I will tell you about the result in my next post.
I end this post with a poker quote that I like: ”People would be surprised to know how much I learned about prayer from playing poker” By Mary Hunter Austin
The pokersites rakeback system is very important for the players. When the big pokersite PokerStars announced changes for the worse for the high stakes players in the rakeback system the reactions came immediately. On the poker forum 2plus2 players organized a three day long boycott in order to show their dissatisfaction. The reaction I think shows the importance of the rakeback system for the players.
Another pokersite took advantage of the boycott and offered lower rake fees on certain tables to attract the dissatisfied players. Kind of smart I think!
Enough about that. I want to tell you a bit about my first live tournament experience! Until recently I hadn´t played in a real live tournament, but now I took the chance to play a beginners tournament. It was really fun, but I have to say it´s a lot easier playing online where you don´t have to count the chips all the time to know how much you have in your stack or how much that´s in the pot or how much chips your opponents have. It´s also easier to bet online, you just click bet half the pot, or bet three times the big blind and so on. But besides that it was really fun to gamble live.
It was a more social experience and you could also try to read the other players body language to determine if they were bluffing or not. That was quite hard and I think it would take years of practice to be good at it. I will most certainly try playing a live tournament again. Not because I was particularly good at it, but because it was so fun and that I want to improve and learn.
I think it´s fun to try new things and learn new stuff. Recently I also tried anonymous poker for the first time, I didn´t really like it, but I guess I have to give it a second chance.
This is my first blog post ever and I am a bit inexpert, but I hope you will give me one more chance if I fail to catch your interest! If you like poker I think you will like this blog because that´s the main subject for this blog. If you are searching for good rakeback deals I also think you will like my posts as I plan to write about where you can find the best rakeback deals and to highlight special rakeback campaigns.
But the most impotant thing with this blog will be to make other recreational player aware of how important rakeback is for the bankroll. I think many players overlook the rakeback offers and pay too little attention to their importance.
If you don´t know what rakeback is you will find a detailed explanation under the menu ”rakeback”. And if you want to know more about me, click on ”about me” in the menu above.
I will also fill this blog with book tips, fact about poker celebrities and interesting videoclip. I will most certainly also blog about my own experiences and results at the poker tables. For example I tried anonymous poker for the first time yesterday. That was odd, it felt a bit strange that I wasn´t able to keep track of the opponents. For me it´s a big part of poker, to learn other players soft spots and to detect their strategies. None of this is possible when you play at the anonymous tables, but that goes both ways, my opponents can´t keep track of me either and that´s an advantage. Maybe I can develop my thoughts about this in a another blog post, it would be interesting to know what you think about the subject. You can contact me via the contact form you will find in the menu above if you want to share your opinion and experiences of anonymous tables.
