There is $100,000 up for grabs courtesy of Cake Poker this month in the $100k Points Race. If you are the most frequent player on Cake Poker then you have the chance to win up to $7,500 (that would involve winning all four weeks and the overall month races).
How It Works
The frequent player points that you earn at both cash games and tournaments will be added to your total and you will compete against all other Cake Poker players for places on the Cake Poker points race leaderboard.
In cash games you earn 1 frequent player point for every $1 in rake that the table you are sitting at rakes and you earn 7 frequent player points for every $1 that you pay in tournament fees.
You can check where you stand on the weekly or monthly leaderboards by visiting the ‘My Account’ section when you are logged into the Cake Poker software.
How Much Can I Win
As mentioned earlier the top prize for each of the weeks and the monthly leaderboard is $1500. The weekly and monthly leaderboard gives out exactly the same amount of cash, so there are basically 5 different leaderboards throughout the month that award the same cash prizes. The top prize is $1500, 2nd is $1000, 3rd is $750 and so on right down to 350th spot on the leaderboard earning $15 in cash from Cake Poker.
So you want to get as many frequent player points as you can this month without breaking the bank and risking a ton of money. The best way to do this is to play extremely tight on a bunch of Cake Poker cash game tables. This means you should fold preflop the vast majority of the time, only playing on big hands that you have a good chance of winning. Because Cake Poker uses the dealt method for distributing frequent player points even if you fold preflop you will still receive the same amount of points as the loose aggressive player at the table who is pushing the pace and upping the rake. Playing extremely tight will also allow you to play more tables because you will not need to concentrate as much playing the flop, turn or river because you will usually be folding or pushing the action preflop. This strategy may not be the most exciting for players who like to get involved in the hands, but if you are just interested in quickly and quietly racking up FPP’s this is the strategy you should employ.Visit Cake Poker for more info
