It might be easier just to show you...
In this example, I have made $33 profit on top of
the $86 I paid in rake during that time.
Had there been no rake I would be up over $115.
The higher % of rake you pay, the more of a profitable player you have to be. The funny thing is you have to be a marginally winning player just to hold even against the rake.
As you play more tables at once, rake is being taken at a higher rate. One must be able to keep up with the action and still play well over more tables otherwise the rake will eat any marginal extra profit you will make by playing the extra tables.
