Fastest way to clear a bonus?  0   
Yo guys.

What do you think is the fastest way to release a bonus? I was going for the $330 on BBP but only made 35 points or something before i lost it all. I started at 0.25/0.50 fixed limit holdem and then wet to 0.10/0.25 PLO8. Alltho it was only $10 so not much to play with there.

However, what do you think is the best way to clear a bonus? It must be 2 table 6 max FL buying in for the whole roll or what do u think? PLO8 fullring fosho is a highrake game but you wont play as many hands as on 6 max fixed limit.

Give me your input.

Peace out

I don't play PLO so not going to talk about it. You have the starting bankroll at BBP which is $10. I am not playing at BBP yet but the fixed limit stake you are playing at is way to high for your bankroll. At that stake, "Don't blink or sneeze," because your buy in/bankroll will be gone if you do. What are the stakes at BBP for the micros with that kinda bankroll? Also, $10 isn't much so you need to start using bankroll management and maybe deposit your own money, then contact John @ BBP and see if he will give you rakeback. Then when you find out what the rakeback % is, go to my thread and post the % in it because that is one of the ??? I had in it. Thx

You played much to high for your ten bucks. Start low and grind through.

For the best approach: It depends on the exact bonus terms. If points are given if players get dealt cards, play full ring. If you have to contribute to the pot, play short, HU or games with antes.

^^ true

Also, I think for bonus clearing in general, HU cash games are pretty fast way of getting points. MTT's are obviously the slowest. HU cash is also a fast way to go bust if you're not careful lol.

Then again, hard to multi-table with HU cash, so maybe multi-table 6max is pretty quick getting points too.. But i don't think multi-tabl'n with $10 is good idea lol.

You shouldnt play 2 high limits. Better grind and when u got more money, play the limit above. Its to counter the variance

For me, the best option to clear a bonus, has to be DoN's (Double or Nothing). Usually you start with 10 players and if you can get to the last 5, everyone gets double their buy-in money. Play these with short stack strategy and good bankroll management and work your way up Blink

Play DoN with SSS ??? What ?

Why is it so hard to believe? If you play DoN's with SSS, with a Tight-Agressive style, playing less hands and when doing so, agressively, it's a good strategy. It's been working for me. Big Smile

I agree with Gabri. play DoN with very high hands and let opponents to play themselves. if you have big hand play very agressive and try to double. thats no need to risk some chips on small hands while that chips might be helpful in future

Multi Table PLO hi with a SSS. If the site gives dealt rakeback back then even better, find the loosest tables you can Smile

I think fastest way to clear bonus is to multi table acc to your bankroll., if you play above your limits there is a remote possibility that you may clear it but most of the times you'll blow it up.

Confused
Short stack and PLO do not compute.

BBP is a contributed room, so no advantage playing SSS if the goal is to clear de bonus. But a good way to build your bankroll.
DoNs are the fast way, but a bad swing can cause you trouble.
You have micro/nano buyin SnG, it's safer, but slow.
You can also try to gamble on some NL HORSE freerol SnG as a risk free way to try to reinforce your bankroll, winner gets 10c. But it is pure gamble, and a big nonsense having that king of SnG with NL betting.

Play $1 - $2 PLO HU sngs. Quicker and easier than DON games and the win is the same.

play 1$ NL double-up SNGs, 10 at a time.

At Big Bet Poker that amount of games is not running.

the best way to clear your bonus is playing pot limit omaha H/L i play 5c/10c only go on with 5 dollars or so, you get plenty of action points from the rake hands because the pots are bigger than N/L

if ya want just go with $2 and see how fast ya points go up in just 1 round (hint go on a 10 seater table)

hope this helps Smile

Because SSS is NOT an option in a SNG (DoN) you do not choose your BI (20BB in this case) you all start the same. There's no such thing as SSS in a SNG. And I wouldn't recommend deliberately losing 80% of my stack in the first hand so as to enable SSS for the DoN. Bad idea.

I think you mean TAG

If you want to release fast a bonus like BBP offer I think you only have two options:

1.-Play as much as you can at lower limits.
2.-Build a decent bankroll playing your best poker and play less per day but at higher limits.

It seems obvious that the best way is to increase your bankroll and play at higher limits, but of course is the harder option too.
I think it does not make any big difference what kind of game you play. What really will make a difference is how much time and at what limit you play.
