Default Raked hands in Noble Poker?

I'm wondering which hands count as raked hands in Noble Poker since I'd like to have 200 of those to get Poker Office.

I've played 0.05/0.10 NL tables and the pots have been larger than 1$. If someone has received the Poker Office bonus from there and has played 200 raked hands, could you please tell me which hands do count and at which tables you must play? (Their
support claims that I have not played a single raked hand)

Maybe because someone that knows that didn't see this yet?

To answer you question. They count .25/.50 cents as raked hands. So you need to play 200 raked hands at those stakes. I had a go round with Noble Poker about this because even though the .05/.10 tables are definitely raked, they say it doesn't count.

I'm not the best player but I made my $50 deposit there and played 200 raked hands with no problem. To play those stakes, normally you should probably have a bankroll of around $150, but if you play smart/tight you will minimize your losses. I was down about $5 after playing...

I play .05/.10 cents.
Im not ready for.25/.50 cents.

But if I want the Noble-deal I can play 200 hands, paying:
20 SB 10 cents
20 BB 25 cents
200 bets 25 cent (assuming there is no raise)
If any more bet in hand I fold.

Total: 5700 cents = 57 dollar
That way I get PokerOffice for 57 dollar.

Of course it will be hard to fold a AA or KK hand,
and i assume it will be a raked hand with only one bet and then fold.
Or must I have my hand to showdown ?

Am I right, including the rake-theori ?

Sweddad, you need to re-read my previous post. They only count .25/.50 toward the raked hands... I went round and round with them on this. It's just the way it is. Contact support@noblepoker, and they'll clue you in more if you need.

Sorry if I wasnt clear enoght.

But my example was a .25/.50-game.
But maybe I was wrong about the blinds.
Where I play, the blinds in a .25/.50-game are .12/.25.

So the total cost would be 57.40 dollar.

In my example I bet only at the flop.

At nobel I even read:
"A Raked Hand is where any player is dealt cards in ring game play, in a hand which generates rake. This constitutes one Raked Hand even where the player folds before the flop."

So I suppose I just can sitt folding 200 hands where it will be a rake.

It seems that I dont have to bet. PokerOffice will be cheap. :grins

Of course Nobel will get me to play there in future, but at 0.05/0.10.

It is contributed raked hands. I thought I had 200 so sent an email to ask. Also sent an email to pokeroffice saying I ahd 200 raked. I hope it doesnt cause trouble...

They said that I had 91 raked hands. Have played them up to 200 now so hopefully pokeroffice were a little slow to check how many hands I had gotten=)

Quote:
With regards to your concern, please be informed that as verified in your
account it shows that you have 91 rake hands as of today, February 19,
2006 (06:57 lobby time). Please note that rake hand occurs in ring games
only after the flop has been dealt and the pot has reached a sufficient
amount to have a rake taken from it. Players who have contributed to the
pot will earn a raked hand.
