Default "bonus whoring"

well, i've read about, I got some kind of idea how it works, but right now I would like some advice.

I started my poker "career" about 1.5 months ago, depositing only 20$ at europoker. (this is not intented to be ad ) so right now, maybe 150 hours of playing later I've got 250$ in my account.
I am playing mostly low limit ring games and limit STT. sometimes i try my luck freerolls or cheap NL MTT. my biggest succes so far was finishing 14th in a 2k people freeroll.

WEll, to get back to the topic, just a couple of days ago, I got my despositing bonus of 20$ for playing a certain amount of hands. so now I want to use more bonus offers for paying my rake. but how should I do this? I thought about creating a neteller account and then transfer some money to a different site. but what site would u recommend? or is neteller a good choice?

maybe u got some good beginners advice too, thanks so far, and pokertips is great

Neteller is regarded as the best medium with which to transfer money to and from different poker sites. I would recommend opening a Neteller account sooner rather than later.

Well it is simple. You search for the best possible first deposit bonus for each site and take advantage of it. Work it off and move to the next bonus. Make sure that you track sites you play and make a spreadsheet to help track your progress. In my opinion right now the best site for bonuses is Pokerroom. This site shows a 50% reload bonus every few months (up to $250 in bonuses).

A couple of things to remember is that you must work off your bonuses at most sites completely before being able to get any of it. And if they give it to you up front you cannot get your money until you work off the bonus. Some networks will not allow you to withdrawl money and get another bonus (Bodog comes to mind). Some networks will not allow you to get signup bonuses at more than one of their sites.

One more thing if you are interested in trying it is if you get your Bankroll up to about $450 or so is to try and bonus whoring casinos. I know this is not poker related and will not help you as a poker player at all except you can make $80 or so in a couple of hours over a number of sites. Just play basic strategy Blackjack (if they allow it read the T&C). There are several guides to doing this in depth and I really do not want to write one here myself. So just something else to consider getting more bonuses and free money for your bankroll.

well sounds like I have imagined. so just take my money (all of it?) and take it to pokerrrom. get the bonus and get going again.
I know some f´sites are only giving 100% bonuses up to 100$, so probably I wanna use those first. does anybody know the great site which overviews somewhat the bonuses of the big sites? the review on pokertips doesnt seem to useful.

thanks for helping out

Reformed Whore here.

The site you are looking for is bonuswhores.com.

I had to stop whoring when I realized my bankroll had grown to be much larger than I needed it to be to play at the limits I was playing. I was a damn good whore back in the day tho....

I recommend firepay, actually; I understand that Neteller charges for transactions entering and leaving your Neteller account, and Firepay charges just $4 per transaction from your bank account to your Firepay account. Transfers from Firepay to merchants or Firepay to your bank account are free.

If done right, no transfers from neteller are charged. Just dont use instacash, and youll avoid paying an 8.9% fee on money sent from your bank acct.

Bonus whoring can be very lucrative if you hit the right sites at the right times. I have a good spreadsheet that says what limits certain sites can be played at, if youre interested in seeing it. Sadly, i went off plan to Ongame Network for a 150$ bonus, been here for a week doing 0.25$/0.5$ limit, and the odd draw session or SNG. Ive cleared about 100$ of bonus, im definitely not shying away from plan again, as clearing a bonus at lower limits takes alot longer than expected, though im +180$ excluding the bonus in profits
