Cash game Rake Caps at Euro tables on Stars
I've been mixing in a lot of Euro tables to my sessions ever since Stars started offering them. My winrates have always been higher and most regs seem to experience higher winrates at them as well. Stars recently made some adjustments to the Caps at the Euro tables that I believe offer even more incentive to play them. They lowered the Euro rake caps because of the exchange rate.
At $25NL USD tables the cap for 5+ players is $2.00 or 8bb.
The cap at the 25NL euro tables is E1.50 which I think is around the same amount of money in a monetary sense but it is only 6bb. I think that this may allow for even bigger winrates at the euro tables since lower rake in terms of bb in an all-in pot will result in lower rake in terms of bb/100 which means your winrate will be higher.
Ive recently started to see some GBP tables running but they are only at 25NL 6max. I hope they start offering these at fullring soon and at all limits since the cap there is L1.25 so only 5bb.
At stakes below NL25 I don't believe the lower bb cap would have a significant effect. The USD cap at 10NL is $1.50 and the Euro cap is E1.25. 15bb vs 12.5bb. The cap doesn't get hit unless you have a 240bb pot.
I'm just bored anyway and thought I'd share that.
