This is a discussion on Higher Rake Vs Weaker Opponents or Less Rake Vs Strong Opponents? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; You choose:
1 - table the $5 in rake for every 30 minute session in the game 10$-20$ limit hold'em with a Pro
Well I don't play limit holdem so I would choose table 2. But if I were a winning player at $10-$20 limit holdem than table 1 is the better table. The majority of the players playing at table 2 would be losing players so this would give me the best chance at beating the game. So many nl holdem players underestimate the differences between nl and limit, and overestimate their ability in the limit game.
