In back to back months, WSOP has offered a DIY bonus.
In the DIY bonus, the player is awarded a bonus based on the amount of poker they play in a 7 day period. I’m always a fan of bonuses of course and if it becomes a regular thing, it will be a nice $200 bonus every month for most grinders.
I am a little worried that with this new strategy there will be no more month long DIY bonuses that WSOP has done in the past.
DIY Bonus: max reward impossible?
The max reward is a $2000 bonus when playing 10,000 APPs in 7 days. I’m wondering if that is even possible on WSOP Nevada. For me, even playing the second bonus of 5,000 APPs will be a stretch. I will probably hate life during that week that I go for it.
10,000 APPs in 7 days would be a little over 1,400 APPs in a day. To break that down, the most I’ve ever earned in one day was when I was on tilt playing 6 tables of 1-2 6max for about 12 hours that earned me just over 1,000 APPs. That’s something I never want to do again and wouldn’t have been good enough anyway.
Could someone reach that reward playing 2-5 and 1-2 PLO for 12 hours? I suppose it’s possible, but I’d argue it could never be a profitable week without getting very lucky… at least without Adderall.
It runs from December 11-17 and I’ll be going for the 5,000 APPs. I have to finish off my Seven Stars earning anyway that will provide the perfect opportunity to double up on value.
Or triple up… I’ll also take advantage of the December Reload before beginning play so most of the 5,000 APPs will be working on a bonus before receiving another bonus in the DIY.
