rakebake v bonus by dabill on 06 Feb 2008
rating 3 / 5
ive beeb playing at sun a couple of
months,partly because of the rakeback
program.however beginning of january i
thought i would reload with $200 to take
advantage of the monthly bonus plus 50%
rakeback.after reaching 500 p/points
$200 bonus was credited to my account at
this point there were about 10 days to
wait for my rakeback, so i went to
ladbrokes, where earning points for
rakeback/freerolls is very easy. the
rakeback at sun arrived in my a/cc
5february.however it was no where near
what i was expecting,as sun explained in
the email all bets used to clear a bonus
(which is most of the time)do not count
towards your rakeback dollars.i did not
see any explanation of this on their
website before hand.i was under thr
impression if you reload each month you
received 50% of your rake, plus your
bonus if cleared.the reality is you get
a small % of rakeback if you reload and
clear your monthly bonus.i hope this
will be of help to those of you who are
enticed by such bonuses/rakeback as i
was with sunpoker rakeback 50%?.afterall
the pokersites ambiguous marketing is
for a reason!

New Rakeback by DeezNutz on 15 Jun 2007
rating 4 / 5
I for one am excited for this new
rakeback scale coming on July 1st. I
play a lot of hands there and for the
mid to larger player, the rakeback is
going to be significantly more money
back in my pocket. With the $1,000
bonus and $500 no deposit bonus, it's
going to be easy to come out way ahead
with this poker room every month. I
just wish they had more high limit games
available at non-peak times. That's
about my only complaint with this room.
Anyone looking for a great room that's
not one of the Big boys, this should be
your first stop. And be sure to get
rakeback with FTR before signing up at
Sun. It's too easy!

SunPoker Room Review


Sun Poker.com Overview



In 2008 SunPoker moved from Cryptologic Network to the larger iPoker Network. This move ensured that SunPoker would be a player in the online poker industry. Now, the room boasts a ton of players and a variety of tournaments and cash games.

SunPoker spreads a wide variety of cash games, starting at $.01/.02 NL Hold’em and going all the way up to $300/$600 Limit Hold’em. For those who like other games, SunPoker offers Pot-Limit Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo, as well as 5 and 7 Card Stud. The most players can be found at the microstakes, however, this is still plenty of action at the mid-stakes games, while the high-stakes are all but dead.

Sit & Go tournaments at Sun Poker are very popular, with good action across a wide range of buy-ins. Hundreds of players are playing in these tournaments, even during off peak hours. If you’re looking for a place with a wide and diverse player base then Sun Poker might well be for you. The buy-ins start at $0.10 + $0.02 and go up to $5,000 + $200, a pretty nice range at any site. Action is spread surprisingly well throughout the different stakes, although you’ll find that most players congregate at the lower levels. While most of the action can be found at lower stakes, there are still many games running above $50 including a few at the $200 + $15 level. All in all, there’s plenty to offer every player with this S&G selection.

Sun Poker has a solid looking tournament package, with thousands of players involved around the clock. The Freerolls start at $0, which is a great way to skip the “Play Money” scenario and play free games for actual winnings. After that, their lowest buy-in is $0.50 + $0.05, while their highest is $500 + $30. There were players at almost every level of tournaments, with only the very highest stakes looking a bit barren. The Freerolls attract the most players, while most other players gather in the low stakes tournaments. The range of tournaments on Sun Poker really seems to have brought in the crowds, and will be exciting to see how they can build on their success in the future.

Sun Poker offers a VIP program that rewards players for continuously playing at their cash games. Upon playing your first cash game, you are automatically enrolled into the VIP program at the starting ‘Mars Level’. Levels are determined by ‘Sun Point’ accumulation. There are five levels and each advancing level accumulates Sun Points faster than the previous one. Advancing through the ranks also means access to more exclusive freerolls. Levels are open to recalculation each month but, unlike other poker rooms, it is up to you whether or not your VIP level is correctly ranked. If you have earned enough points within a month's time to advance to the next level, you must send an email to support in order to have your level upgraded.

Here is an explanation of how Sun Points are earned at each level:

What? Sun Poker just decided to change
their rakeback policies to screw
existing rakeback players? I don't get
it. Things were so good for a long time.
Supposed to occur on July 1, 2007 - so
we'll see what happens, I'm not sure
exactly what's going to happen, but I
did receive a heads up. I hate to see
sudden changes in the terms and
agreements, especially when they're
meant to benefit the poker room and put
more money in their pockets. However,
Sun Poker is a good place to play, with
great bonuses, reloads, service, etc...
I'm on the fence whether to continue
playing there, I guess it all depends on
what happens to my rakeback over the
coming months. Good Luck!
