Any one suggest sites with info on what i can earn expect
It's great that you're considering high levels of RB to increase your profit. It shows you're a thinking player, but in actual fact it doesn't always work out that easily =)
The more rakeback players get, the less money poker rooms have to market their product. The rooms with the higher RB and more aggressive VIP programs typically have a worse offering than those with lower ones.
Look through 3 of the biggest rooms in online poker (Maybe some people will see what I've done here, bit cheeky)
A guesstimate here would be that the average return, for completely typical player across these three rooms would be between 10 - 20%.
As you travel further down the poker traffic rankings you will notice that deals get progressively better.
In the mid-zone we have people like Merge, Revolution & IGT who offer flat RB of 30 - 40% with promotions on top, often resulting in a player's return being in excess of 60%.
Finally, as we arrive at the bottom we get the prop sites.
Whilst one poster in this thread mentioned they had profited 6 figures from propping over a few years, it's really not so easy and I'm sure they've seen a lot of people come and go in their time.
You're almost always going to be playing on a site with almost zero traffic and as pointed out will always have to play short handed games. No table selection and I'm not convinced the opposition will be that soft either.
My suggestion would be to post a Rakeback Request
(find out what 2+2's Advertising Affiliates have to offer you) or post exactly what you're looking for in this thread. If it's to maximise your edge, then you should get in line as that's a question that lots of people have different opinions on and there is no clear answer.
Anyway hope this helps and good luck with everything!
