Would you like interest with that bonus and rakeback?

I haven't played at Absolute Poker in nearly three years, when I was trying to bonus whore and move up to 3/6 limit games. I lost money, I hated the software and I haven't played there since.

That said, I'm thinking about going back to Absolute because of this cool-sounding new promo that gives 9 percent interest on poker accounts, which I first read about through Kick Ass Poker Blog. It appears that you must be an "Elite" level player and keep $1,000 in your account, but other than that I don't see many restrictions.

It sounds like a fantastic deal. Combined with constant bonus offers and rakeback, Absolute seems to be giving away a ton of money -- perhaps enough to even make me play there again. All I need to do now is grow my bankroll to $500,000 and live off the $45,000 a year in interest while continuing to beat the games.

Check out this 2+2 thread for more info.

I was saddened to hear that Kuro, the original poker cat, died last week from liver complications from lymphoma and chemotherapy. He was a fantastic kitty, and I'll think of him any time I play the Kuro (6-3).

Thanks for this pot, Kuro:

Not to mention the new Absolute software doesn't suck anymore. I hated the software as well, but now I like it a lot better. Also, there's a program out thats free that allows you to datamine Absolute, you can even set your table preferences and it will open tables that meet them, close them when they don't meet them anymore and open new ones.
