The question is how many hands did it take you to get from 20 to 52 and at what stakes, all of this determines the rake amount.....you make reference to them taking your profit however if you were losing they are still getting their rake so then would you complain that they are attributing to your losses?
Give some details that mean something to determine the rake in that situation, add up all the pots both wins and losses from your point of view all being positive (so you win 5$ and you lost 5$ then we have a value of 10$)......you need to base the amount of rake attributed on the amount of money bet not what you profited....so as an example if going from 20 to 52 you had wagered (so wins + loses) 500$ and paid 33$ in rake then you paid only 7% roughly in rake.........not the huge #'s your spitting out.
Anyhow, gl now grinding on stars with the lower rake.
*Clearification on former post.
Have been playing on Pokerstars over 2.5k games so not like i opened an account. Tried out 888 because they said the competition was softer and sure it is.. but the rake!
Have been playing 1dollars 9man SNG on 888. Or should we call them 666..
Fee on those one is .15dollars
This is already higher than all the other sites, pokerstars starts at .12dollar per 1dollar.
Have been playing 316 SNG
47.6 dollars in fees/rake to 666 sorry 888
Same amount with a fee at 0.12 per 1dollar would sum up to 37dollars in fees
My actually profit 32+47=79
Exactly what is shown on the graph i added to my first post in this thread.
THE RAKE THE SITES are charging you are money which is deleted from the "total pot" the 9 players are playing for.
I don't really know how you make it sounds so complicated.
Response on EDIT:
1. The fees on 888 is higher. 0.15 or 0.12 makes a
30dollars change over 1000 games!
Effective rakeback on 888 is 2.5-4% on the lower limits.
27% on the highest and this level will you pretty much never reach if you are playing SNG.
Pokerstars. Already at Gold do you get 25% rakeback. This is huge compared to 4%..
90 dollars to Pokerstars for the people on pokerstars to do stuff you do at pokerstars
888 (also called 666)
Rakeback (lets say bronzelevel 4%)
Difference between 666 and Pokerstars 144-90=54dollars
54dollars is huuuge
