This is a discussion on at what point is the rake too high within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; I have been playing a lot of live cash nl holdem in local poker rooms. The stakes available are 1/2 and 2/4. The rake structure
I have been playing a lot of live cash nl holdem in local poker rooms. The stakes available are 1/2 and 2/4. The rake structure is 10% capped at $5 with an additional dollar taken for promotions both when the pot reaches $20 and again at $40. So $7 is taken from a $50 pot and higher. The promotions are generally some sort of high hand give away. At what point is the rake just too high to beat in the long run?

Over 6.2%. Live cash is garbage...their tournaments suck also.Those promos are a clever way of players subsidizing the poker rooms marketing efforts.

You're playing in the NH rooms right? 7$ cap has a huge affect on winrate, makes 1/2 unbeatable (in a vacuum) and makes 2/5 tougher to beat. Live pros do not grind 1/2. They grind 1/3, 2/5, 5/10. High hand promo does bring in "fun" players but the math behind the rake is alarming.

re: Poker & at what point is the rake too high
Yes, NH rooms. Everyone flocks to the high hand promotions and the games can get pretty soft, but the rake just seems too big. Hopefully the Wynn will impact their ability to charge these rakes. You would think they might want to get out ahead of it though.

It depends on how good you are.
The more you beat the games the less rake matters.
