Explanation of Rake Structure

When it says at a limit of 2/4, 6-10 players, 20\$ pot is raked 1\$, does that mean it is only raked if the pot reaches that amount?

Re: Explanation of Rake Structure

So even if it's at 10\$, it's not raked .50?

Am I understanding this correctly?

Yes you are understanding that correctly. Look at this way: "for every \$20 in pot, the \$1 rake is taken." \$20/\$40/\$60 pots for 6-10 players making \$1/\$2/\$3 in rake...

This is why, in my opinion, of all stakes between 2/4 to 10/20 at most sites, 2/4 would be the worst to "choose" to play...

Re: Explanation of Rake Structure

really?

I thought 5% was raked up to a max of \$3 on most sites, with a 'no flop, no rake' policy on some..

Right, I may have not been clear, but \$1 rake at \$20 pot is equivalent to 5% so yeah, that is very common across most sites. That goes the same with 'no flop, no rake' policy... in fact, I think it's every site as I can't imagine there are exceptions but I'm curious.

If anyone wants more discussion on this topic, this thread talked about % of raked hands at different limits. I'm pasting the link directly to my comments in 1 particular post:

raked hands at different limits

P.S. #1: OP (ItalianFX), I have rake bookmarks/links to many major poker websites that I could post here (for example, Party's rake page is here).

P.S. #2: excession, off point, great site you have at BTP (it helped me learn PT quite a bit...)
