Re: ***Official Stars Regs Thread***

Question: the discounted boni are seriously instant cash boni? Or is it just a glitch that I got the 285$ instantly rewarded?

I did not realize that the gutshot 4 card straight is on the table. my fault.
your statement above is true as well.

I think it is an error.....I did the $50 yesterday and it credited to my bonus account, $285 went straight to cash. Also there is a popup message saying to check your bonus account to see it.

Re: ***Official Stars Regs Thread***

but the 285$ bonus is still less value than the 4k right?
so it would be -EV to buy it if you are SN, if my math is right..

$285/20,000 < $4,000/250,000

Re: ***Official Stars Regs Thread***

The question is - I moved to Stars recently and I'm on my way to SN (no wet SNE dreams). Should I buy 285 bonus? I will buy 650 usd of course but is 285 on sale worth 650 without the sale? Because x$ today is more than x$ tomorrow.

$650 normally = .013 $/FPP
$285 on sale = .01425 $/FPP

so yeah it's worth it.

but yeah there is a 650 on sale end of the month, and i remember $/FPP is better than the 4k bonus.

23/14 not workin out but all these guys are wining playing 36/28? maybe try playing like the winners, not how you used to win

You guys are going to have to spoon feed me this 36/28 style. To save space, what hands aren't you opening UTG at a 6m table?
