Sensing Weakness

I don't know how they do it, but Empire Poker just sent out the email for their August reload bonus. I just finished up the casino bonuses a few days ago, dumping the $200 in profit into my poker bankroll, and didn't feel like moving on to another online casino blackjack bonus. Blackjack is fine as a distraction, since it is mindless and mechanical. But mindless and mechanical also gets old fast.

Right on cue, here comes the Empire bonus. As you may recall, the last Empire bonus had me three-tabling, grinding for hours at a time, pulling out my hair to clear that 17x raked hands requirement. "Why the hell am I doing this for a lousy $100?!"

Did I swear "never again!"? I don't recall, but I'm going to break that oath if I did. This time, I'll only go for a $50 reload. At 10x raked hands, that's 500 hands in 10 days to clear. Piece of cake.
