    Thinking about changing my "home" site.

    For years now Bovada has been my "go-to" site. I have always done well there and I know my check is coming and will be good when I get it. Unfortunately there Rakeback/Points system sucks @ss.

    They give 3 points per $1 in rake (3%). Those points can only be used to trade for tourney tickets at set increments. Since I started keeping track just a couple of weeks ago I've contributed over $170 in rake which amounts to about $5 worth of points. If I were playing on ACR that same amount of rake would be worth about $45 in rake back, free and clear, no rollover required. That is HUGE!

    I've been in a bit of a slump lately, which is what set my research into motion in the first place. But, even when I'm doing well that $45 could easily tack another 10% on to my profit.

    Now, it should be stated, I get 27% rakeback on ACR because I'm tracked through RTR, but I imagine even if you are not, any other site's rakeback/points system has to be better than Bovada's.

    So, I'm gonna focus on ACR for a while and see how that goes. I will continue to play on Bovada as well for now but I may just leave that for Limit games (which I noticed are very thin on ACR) and certain guaranteed tournis.

    I've yet to make a withdrawal from ACR. So I'll have to wait and see how that goes. But with P2P transfers, I could have money in my PP account in minutes. I played there last night after winning 90c in a PO freeroll. The competition is pretty soft there as well. (I'm speaking specifically to the field I met outside of the PO game) I turned the 90c into $7 in just a few hours and gained almost 50c in rake back doing it. So far I'm very happy with the switch.
