What is rake?

Rake is the commission taken by the online poker rooms when you are playing a poker game, if the pot is exceeding a specific amount of money. The best poker rooms are taking usually a maximum of 5% rake at the poker tables. This rake allows the poker sites to offer poker promotions, deposit bonuses and first of all to be profitable. For example if you have a winning hand and the pot is $1, you pay usually 5 cents to the room.

If you are playing a lot of poker, the rake can be a significant amount that you are paying to the poker rooms.

What is rakeback?

Rakeback is some kind of bonus offered by the online poker rooms through some poker related websites, just like rakeracer.com. It is a refund to you if you are playing poker, and if you are generating a specific amount of rake at the poker room. The amount of rakeback is usually 25-30% of a percentage, but you can get up to higher rakeback percentage at specific poker rooms, and even more if you are playing in a rake race too.

What is the difference between dealt and contributed methods?

A rake race is usually a monthly, but always a time based event.

What kind of rake race types can I find?

There are a lot of rake race types, but the most common rake races are:

  • - rake race: this kind of rake race is based on contribution, so your final position on the rake race leaderboard will be determined by the amount of the rake you have generated. Your aim is to generate as many rake in the given period as you can. A rake race is optimal for players who are playing on higher levels.
  • - raked hand race: this kind of rake race is based on volume, so your final position on the raked hand race leaderboard will be determined by the number of raked hands you have played in the given period. The amount of rake is not important. Raked hand races are optimal for players who play a lot of poker and this kind of race is optimal for low stakes players too.
  • - points race: this kind of race is very similar to a rake race, but this time you have to collect as many point as you can. Points are usually awarded by the poker rooms for generating rake.

Why should I participate in a rake race?

You should use a poker tracking software like Poker Tracker or Holdem Manager. These tracking softwares will help you by playing multi-table, will help you to choose right decisions. Watch out to choose a rake race where the number of possible competitors is low.

How should I choose a rake race?

You should consider the prize pool amount of the rake race and as mentioned earlier the number of competitors. You can do this by checking the previous months results (the leaderboard), where you can find how many rake, raked hand or poker points other players generated.
