Theres another thread about rake let me find it......
Here, listen to Hamm, he's smart, as he shows us here that there are many ways to calculate your rake paid. The full tilt link should answer your question thoroughly though.

Are you just looking to see approximately how much rake you're generating with a given number of hands or what? If you have HEM, it shows you how much rake you've paid in your sessions tab and if you're trying to find out how much rakeback you're going to get, you just take that total of all of your sessions and then multiply it by whatever percentage you're getting in rakeback(FT, most likely .27). Hope that helps phil, but I'm not 100% sure if it did, lol

I have two questions:
1. How can anyone remain profitable in the long run when the rake represents such an incredibly large fraction of the pot?
2. I clearly have to quit playing at FT (or at the very least I have to quit playing cash games). Can anyone recommend me another site where the rake structure is not a complete robbery AND the site is not a scam in other ways?
Pretty much all of the other poker sites
charge ridiculous rakes for the micro blinds. If you don't want to get bent over by the rake, your only option is to move to higher stakes, or not play online poker. I doubt there is a poker site that facilitates the flow of money without taking some for itself.
^^ Why's the BB system keep attaching these code gibberish here? Is that like hexi-decimal or something crazy?
