as u know the rake is for the poker site/ casino as a fee cuz in poker the winner is one of the players not the site or casino.
Split pots shouldn't be raked because players should not lose money for winning a hand, when a player wins a hand its fine to rake it because the winner of the hand is gaining money.
If I'm playing black Jack and it's a push I shouldn't lose a % cause its a tie I should get my money back..
Or if they are going to rake pslit pots then the players who are currently in the hand should get back everything they invested in the pot and rake money contributed by a player who is not currently still in the hand.
