Definition of rake
Rake means "the rake" or "the rake". The rake is what collects the commission from each pot played in poker. In short, the rake is the commission paid to the poker room. In cash games, it is called "rake". In tournament poker, it is called an entry fee. A 100??? + 10??? will be a 100??? tournament that will go to the paid seats and 10??? will be to cover the commission fee. This money will go to the casino, online or physical gaming room. The rake is relatively the same everywhere.
How is the rake calculated?
In tournaments, the rake is usually 10%. If you play a 10??? tournament, you will pay 1??? in rake. If you play a 100??? tournament, you will pay 10??? in commission. As far as cash games are concerned, it depends on the game room. The majority of online gaming rooms will have a commission cap. This cap will usually be 3??? per pot. So, whether you played a 100??? pot or a 5000?? pot, when you win the pot, in both cases, 3??? will be taken out of the pot to go into commission. If the pot is smaller, we will usually charge between 4% and 10% of the pot size. Some live casinos do not have a rake cap on cash games.
