Seth,

For us players who kept rakeback initially, is anything changing? Or is this just to allow everyone else to have what we already have?

Existing rakeback accounts will remain unchanged. You will continue to receive 35% rakeback paid daily into your account.

Thanks....

with the increased competition it would be nice if Merge also did two other things:

1) Follow through on the promised rake reductions for fixed limit games.
2) Allow RB players to use their points like we used to be able to do before the RB change was implemented.

Item 1 was promised over a year ago (not by you) and has yet to materialize.

This. If this happens, it'll most likely prevent me from switching most of my volume to Lock.

How were the points able to be used? I have been a RB player since I signed up last year (never switched to VIP) and I have only ever been able to enter tournaments with the points. Did I miss something?

Before they made the change to their VIP system you used to be able to use the points to buy cash (or maybe it was bonuses, I don't remember). When they changed their system they let us keep RB but we can only use those points to buy into tourneys.

I love my rakeback but I simply do not have the time to commit to tournaments so my points are totally worthless to me. I have a boatload just sitting there and it would be nice if i could at least buy a bonus with them.

Interesting. I guess I missed that, antneye. All I ever saw available was tourny entries. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. Web site is so easy to find stuff on ya know

It was points for cash. I think it was 100 per $1.

Re: Rakeback at RPM Poker is back on the Merge Network

What if u are a rakeback player thats wants to switch back over to VIP? I was level 8 when I switched to RB, will I start at 0 or 8 and/or can I continue with RB and eventually switch to VIP (will I be at a higher tier if I continue grinding?)

I believe you would be at the level you are once you switch over. If you were level 9 RB player you would become a level 9 VIP. But your points gets zeroed out.

Yeah if you switch all your points will disappear. That means you need to use them before the switch.

Just wanted to make sure it wasn't my Lifetime VIPs (not sure if that matter) but yea I already used them a while ago.

Do u think its more profitable to stay with RB or go VIP? I am at tier 8 and mostly play small SNGs but decent volume. Did they cut out double VIP point days? Didn't see any for June.

yes, no double point days, another skin has happy hours, here they are going with cash ring hands and I think there is a volume SNG count that you can get bonus points 300.

8 gear to 10 gear is pretty quick for cash players .. easy to figure out for tourney players also.

10 gear to J gear is a long grind 4x 10 gear. Rakeback is better at 10 gear. But the 300 points are not so valuable as they have no cash value, though you can use them for tourney entries so you would get more value than a ring game player. J gear if you have bonuses stacked is break even.

But, points are better for rake races and bonus clearing .. I switch at J gear and got to Q gear faster and now I'm +EV over rakeback and just a merge slave now.
