There is no mistaking Poker Stars as being the #1 poker room and network available world wide. But when you are the best like Poker Stars, you tend to forget what is the most important aspect of online poker: the player. Online poker players deserve to feel special and unique, and how can you do that when you’re one of just several hundred thousand?
Play at Poker Stars if you want to, but if you want to feel rewarded for being loyal to a poker room and be treated like a special poker player, find an online poker room willing to reward you for your loyalty. By finding a new poker room you will have higher rewards and deposit bonuses and will soon forget why you didn’t decided to switch sooner.
Frequently Asked Questions
Have you looked into the 888 Network?
We have. Unfortunately the poker rooms on the 888 Network refuse to allow us to track any players in a bid to prevent anyone from receiving any under-the-table rakeback deals. This means we aren’t allowed to give you free membership for grinding there so we have decided to keep them off of our list. We consider the network to be reputable and, while you wont earn free poker training, anyone who wants to grind there and support Grinderschool Rakeback please send us an email and we’ll get you a link.
Now, players may play on the 888 Network and earn VIP rewards through the Muchos Poker client. While you can’t earn a free membership every month, once you hit 1000 status points you will earn a free 6 month membership to Grinderschool Poker training.
Under The Table Rakeback?
Grinderschool Rakeback attempts to provide the highest quality service by only promoting the best poker rooms and offering the best deals. We offer the same deal to everyone and refuse to offer any illegal rakeback programs. Any player that comes up to you offering you a “special deal” is nothing more than a glorified scam artist in our opinion. The deals are illegal at nearly every poker room and, if you accept, you could have your account closed and funds seized. Additionally, we are accountable for the poker rooms we promote and we take our job very seriously. Please send an email to email@example.com if anyone offers you an under-the-table rakeback deal and we will take responsibility and deal with him ourselves.
Where is PokerStars?!
We fully admit a purposeful lack of acknowledgement of Poker Stars, its network, traffic, deposit bonus and reward information. They are the world’s number one poker room, both in size and accountability. What it has in size it lacks in both deposit bonus and VIP rewards to the majority of its players. Grinderschool Rakeback thinks Poker Stars is a great poker room that many USA players wish they could play on. However, we are unable to track our sign-ups which prevents us from providing free poker training and free poker gifts. For this reason, we do not promote Poker Stars.
Should I switch poker rooms from PokerStars?
It depends. Many USA players wish they could play on the most reputable and popular poker room online but that is mainly because of a lack of better options. For non-US players currently at the micro and small stakes, you are potentially losing out on a lot of money by playing at Poker Stars over other networks. Read our article on why you should switch from Poker Stars for more information.
What is the difference between rakeback and VIP rewards?
One of the incentives poker rooms use to retain and build a player base is rakeback. Over the past several years the differences of rakeback and VIP Rewards you receive by playing have increased. Whether you choose a rakeback poker room or a VIP Reward poker room should depend on where you currently live and how much rake you plan on generating for the poker room each month. Rakeback rooms offer a flat rate regardless of how much rake you generate during a given month. Alternatively, poker rooms that offer VIP Rewards give the highest rewards to the highest rake generators; with the highest VIP Rewards more than the highest rakeback percentage on any competing poker room.
When should I choose a rakeback poker room?
No matter where you live, choosing a rakeback poker room is going to benefit you the most if you are playing 1) $25nl or below at cash games, 2) $5 or below in tournaments, 3) less than 10,000 hands per month or 4) less than 1000 tournaments a month. With this much volume it is nearly impossible to generate enough rake at the VIP Reward sites to match a competing rakeback offer. At $50nl and higher, the amount of rake you generate increases significantly because of the larger pot sizes and at that time you should look into a VIP Reward poker room.
When should I choose a VIP rewards poker room?
Each VIP Reward poker room is different in terms of where they cross the rake threshold to make it more profitable for you to play there over playing somewhere else with rakeback. The VIP Reward poker rooms intentionally make their reward system confusing so they can advertise a higher reward rate than they actually plan on paying out. Grinderschool has spent the time and effort to give you a detailed description of your rewards at each poker room given how much you plan to play. Visit each VIP Reward poker room to know exactly how much you can expect to get back monthly depending on your stake and volume.
