This is a discussion on Potentially VERY stupid question about 888 rake within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; Hey guys so as you could probably guess from the question im a bit new around here.
How does rake work at 888, is the rake
You probably should have asked this in either the Poker Sites or General Poker forum.
Still, now we're here. I think that you might have misunderstood the term 'rake'. Rake is what the poker site takes from the pot as a 'fee' for running the games. Therefore it is not applied to your bankroll at all.
Most sites operate a rake-back scheme where, at the end of a period for example a month, a percentage of the 'rake' you have contributed is paid into your BR. The period and percentage might vary from site to site.
