How Much Is The Rake In Poker

Fixed Limit Rake at PokerStars Tournament Rake is 6-10% Tournament buy-ins are divided into two separate pieces: one large piece for the prize pool, and a smaller piece to cover PokerStars’ hosting costs. This latter piece represents the “rake” of the tournament, and it. The raked game described above has an average cost of around $12 an hour per player in rake ($4 x 30 hands an hour = $120 total, divided among 10 players). A $5 per 30-minute time charge would cost. Poker author Steve Selbrede analyzed nearly 1,000 hands of $1/$2 and $2/$5 cash games to show the effect of rake on players' profits at the lower limits.

The rake is defined below for each game which we spread. We do not charge rake if the hand ends on the first betting round (before the flop in Hold’em or Omaha, before Fourth Street in Stud variants, or before the Draw in Draw variants).

The HORSE mixed game includes only Limit games in the rotation, and therefore will be raked according to the Fixed Limit structures.

We offer mixed games that have parts of game rotation which are Fixed Limit, and other parts which are No Limit and/or Pot Limit. Hands played at these tables are raked according to the type of game dealt in a particular hand.

Valve artifact. We also offer a selection of special poker game variants – see here for rake information for those games.

‘Number of players’ in the tables below refers to the players who were dealt into that particular hand, not the number seated at the table.

The tables below also represent the rake for both regular ring game and Zoom tables.

True Percentage Rake

Ring game rake is calculated as a true percentage using the ‘round half to even’ method of rounding.

Non-USD Currency Rake

The caps for non-USD games are subject to quarterly review and may be changed due to fluctuations in the exchange rates.
