Rakeback? Where are you playing?
Well this month I played just over 60k hands and for the first week I was only playing two or four tables, the rest of the month I was playing 8 or 9 tables but 7 seems to be the sweet spot for me. On average I was playing just over 2hrs a day so if I put in more volume at the weekends and makes sure I'm always playing 7 - 9 tables then 100k should be possible. I'll probably get off to a slow start though as I've got an exam to revise for this week.
By rakeback I just mean the VIP program at Stars. This month it was boosted by a $100 deposit bonus, but I also got $110 in Stellar bonuses and $210 worth of fpps. So $210 straight into my account and $210 in points. This month I won't get the $100 deposit bonus, but Platinumstar is worth at least $80 so that makes up for it.
Edit: Just seen that this month the VIP requirements are reduced to just 10% of what they normally are, so Silverstar is 75VPP and Platinum is 750VPP. Basically it means I gained almost nothing by reaching Platinum last month as I would have reached it within two days anyway.
