Questions about rake
while I understand why poker sites
keep rake and how it is calculated there are a few questions which remain:
1. when do I get credited for a raked hand, certainly I don't have to win the hand, but do I have to see the flop, the turn, river call the BB or even if I fold pre-flop?
2. when do the sites deduct the rake, right after the hand or after the session. My concern here is this: lets say I win a few $5 pots of 50c rake each, if then I go on full tilt and loose my entire bankroll, and they want rake later I would need to deposit money in order to pay for it.
3. as I understand there is no rake in tournaments, do I get credit for having played in one in another way.
Reason I ask, I got free money from some Poker site and am playing freerolls
, which hopefully at one point will make it into the prizes. But you have to play a certain amount of raked hands before you cash out.
