playing raked hands for bonuses
I have only been playing SnG's at party poker for a couple months, and never used a bonus code when making a deposit.
Most of them require you to play 5x number of raked hands, where x is the amount of your bonus. Since i never play ring games this has not lured me in but now I am starting to think about it. My question is, what does it mean when they say "play this amount of raked hands"?
Does it mean that if I fold preflop without a blind, does that count as "playing the hand?"
Now say I post blind, and fold to a raise preflop, does that count as playing a raked hand (provided the other players eventually go on and bet enough in that hand to bring out the rake)?
Do you have to see that damn thing all the way through to the river?
I guess I just want clarification on what it means to "play" a raked hand.
