Me and spacedvest2 tried this solution yesterday and it is confirmed to still work as of 28 April 2011.


After hours of frustration trying to rank up to Expert and trying Player and Ranked matches, I think I have found the easiest solution to rank up online.

What you need: a boosting buddy, a wired controller or a play & charge kit, and a good night's rest.

Just create a Player match for 2 people. We picked Omaha, No Limit just because there is less people playing Omaha but any game type should do. Then choose the highest starting amount of cash ($25,000), set the blinds for $1/$2, no ante, no observers, and a 10 second timer for in between turns. All other options do not matter.

Start the match with your buddy and you'll notice that when the 10 second timer expires, one player will automatically fold. It will go back and forth for hours, each exchanging winned hands. Now just leave it alone for a number of hours and it will do all the work for you.

Eventually you will keep ranking up because winning hands count, not just matches won. I left it, went to sleep, and came back 8 hours later and the game was finished and I had Expert rank. I Hope this helps a lot of you. Let me know if you have any questions.
