Started my third challenge, of course through PokerSavvy on Betfair (Ongame network). I need to get 250 Ongame Player Points ($69.44 in paid rake) to earn 800 ($800) SavvyPoints plus like $30 from deposit bonus to give me sweet 158.41% rakeback. Essence will screw me, no doubt about that but I’ll update standings very soon.

I was done fairly quickly with my PokerSavvy Kickback Bonus Challenge #2 because that PartyPoker deal is awesome. Unfortunately, due to my decision to play Fast Forward poker (basically same thing as Zoom Poker, Rush Poker, Speed Poker etc.), there’s no PokerTracker graph to show this time.

As I said, PartyPoker deal through PokerSavvy is awesome with requirements to collect 100 Party points ($50 in paid rake). Reward is 700 SavvyPoints ($70). I paid $51.42 in rake and with additional $10 from Deposit Bonus (80 Party Points = $10 chunk) my effective rakeback was total of $80 or 155.58%!

Time for bad news… I suck so bad in these speed variants of poker. True, I’m running horrible but I’m also not playing good. I was down -$88.02 from actual poker after only 7-8 hours of total gameplay at NL4 and NL10.

…to trigger additional $200 bonus on PokerStars because it’s pointless to play without any if there’s chance to get it rollin’. Need 3,400 VPP, shouldn’t be too complicated.
