66% Rakeback on Betfair Poker

I'm a big geek for social networking sites Twitter and Facebook and I follow a number of the big-name professional poker players such as Daniel Negreanu and Betfair's Annette Obrestad.

From time to time, Annette has been "tweeting" about a deal that she can put people onto if they add her as a friend and send a direct message to her. She has said that it is worth up to 66% so I have done a little digging to see if it is true and how the deal is structured.

It seems new players who sign-up with the appropriate code from Annette_15 will receive the standard rakeback allowed which is 30% rakeback if you earn between 0-29,999 Betfair Points (£0-£1,499 approx) or 40% rakeback for earning 30,000 points or more.

On top of that there is a sign-up bonus of $2,500 which is five times the size of the bonus mentioned in my previous post AND it clears at 300 Betfair Points per $10 rather than 400 Betfair Points.

To boost the potential rakeback to 66% it looks like Betfair are doing some sort of buy one get one free (BOGOF) with their $18k Guaranteed tournament that runs everyday at 2015 UK time.

The $18k is a $109 buy-in tournament that pays out at least $5,400 to the winner and usually has some sort of overlay attached to it., I know last night's had an overlay of $5,500 due to just 125 fish entering.

Apparenlty, each time you buy into the $18k Guaranteed tournament, Betfair Support will issue you with a ticket for another one, up to 10 times or $1,090 in cash value, absolutely free. It all sounds pretty good to me, shame I already have an account!

I love to read this blog, impressive poker ramblings, musings and even the randomness is what attracts the most about this blog site. Keep up the good work!
