No that is a side event. A side game is usually a table game like roulette
OP, don't bother playing it, it won't be worth it.
As for the rake races, there is usually a system in place to standardize rake between tournaments and cash games.
e.g.: 1 point = x amount of $ in tournament fees or x amount of $ raked in cash
