No flop no drop

Definition of No flop no drop

"No flop no drop" is a policy that some rooms of poker have. This policy states that if the table does not see flop, there is no "drop" (rake or commission to be paid). Usually, on the majority of poker rooms in line, in games of cash games, the game room will take a % of the size of the pot in commission regardless of the size of the pot. The "No flop no drop" policy allows not to pay rake even if a big pot is played preflop. This is obviously a policy to the advantage of the player.
