$1253 - It Seems I Barely Pay The Rake

Well, I'm up to $1253 in the ladder challenge. I am not really playing as much as I thought I would, but seem to making some progress up the ladder (baby steps). I am getting a little bored posting the tracker screenshots all the time, so I will prolly only show this once a week or so from now on.

One thing that jumped out at me is that I get raked a lot less than the average player. I always kind of knew this deep inside. I play tight, and don't usually go too far in a hand unless I plan on winning it. PokerTracker calculates your actual rake that you contributed. It's about $54 so far in the challenge. Bonus on fulltilt uses a calculation that shares the rake equally between all players at the table. I have cleared $43 in bonus during the same period. I am also qualifying for the Iron Man Freeroll, Aussie Millions Freeroll, and earning 1000s of FTP points. When you add the value of all this stuff up, it appears that FullTilt is paying me to play (assuming there is a bonus working). I am earning more in bonus and incentives than the value of my personal rake, and this is without rakeback, lol. Not sure if anyone else has looked at this before. The more aggressive styles, and poorer players must get over raked at FullTilt compared to me, but I'm not complaining.
