 Jul13 awarded Supporter Jul13 comment How to maximize expectation with pocket aces and an Aces Cracked bonus running I hope the last bit clears up the turn line. Sorry about the mess of a post - I came in with a bias about this type of bonus.

Where I used to play there was a \$50 Aces Cracked bonus in a \$1/\$2 no limit game, in which it was seldom the correct strategy to throw the hand.

The bonus value is largely irrelevant unless your strategy prevents a losing showdown.

I play no limit, so the big bet and the big blind are the same. In that case, the \$200 bonus is a really good deal when you have aces, but a really crappy deal if a drop is taken for it. I'll update my post later :).
