Is $5 a good hourly wage? No. Is $20 a significantly better hourly wage than $15? Yes.

I should stress that for the average player, this promotion is still -EV, but even then it's by about half as much. Usually, there isn't extra rake for one-day-only promotions, or promotions with a fixed payout. If you're going to play, this is a good day to play.

agreed

but If this is the only reason you're going to play, it's not worth it.

I've played quite a few promos and some of the most lucrative promos in a vacuum were actually the worst.
Promos can be very good, but you have to be objective and understand the game quality has to cost you less than the value of the promo.

As a followup- I did go, and split the very first high hand of the afternoon between 2pm and 230pm for $500 both ways.

As for those talking about the tight play need ect- I was on a 2-4 limit game- $200 bankroll i figure plenty for a 2-4 limit and able to see plenty of flops for $2. our high hands were A's full of Q's both of us had pocket Qs.

The promo drew a HUGE crowd- Ive never seen the place that full - there are about 21 tables, and each one was full 9 players- and there were 30 players waiting on 1-1 no limt, and about 15 players each waiting for 1-3 spread or 1-2 no limit - and a few waiting on 2-4.. I left a couple hours later up $450 for the night.

Am j correct in understanding if not for the hitting and splitting a high hand you would of lost $50 in 2 hrs on a 2 -4 game and you split a pot?

I would love for someone to do the math on how often queens full would hold up as a high hand with 189 people playing you were extremely lucky.

oh, I see it now.

it was A's full of Q's - not Q's full of A's - we both had packet Q's with three A's on the board.
