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.

In light of my last edit I'll rethink the hand and post a more appropriate answer if I should come to one. 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.

You'll find the river analysis applied to the turn is consistent with the notion of pot odds since pot odds is just shorthand thinking for expectation, i.e. pot * odds_win - bet * (100% - odds_win) > 0 simplifies to odds_win > bet / (pot + bet). The bonus value is largely irrelevant unless your strategy prevents a losing showdown.

Sorry, halve all my bets. 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 :).
