Whatever the rate may be, you get that along with all the other players at the table.
I think it's weird as i'm not putting any money in the pot, why should I get VPP's (basically rakeback) when i'm not paying rake.
Yeah that's right, if the pot built to whatever it be (maximum is $3.00 in rake I think) then it's distributed evenly among all players at the table who received cards pre-flop.
For me personally I think it's better because I'm quite a tight player most of the time but you often find donkeys calling all sorts any pairs/draws etc all-in's and spew of their money so, I think this is nice for someone like me and even other players.
It's a better system than just for when you enter a hand yourself...not sure how it can't be.
