blind stealing on this format, $2bb, $2SB, $1 button.

Limp is $5 min to open, common raise is $15.

Stealing blind $15 to win $3, $2 after tip. ($1 goes to rake, $1 goes to jackpot.)

If it goes to the flop, $5 goes to rake, $2 to jackpot, $1 tip, $22. Risk $15 to win $22, if cbet and fold.

Is tipping mandatory every hand? And is the $5 rake including the $2 to jackpot? Or is the $2 for the jackpot in addition to the $5 rake? Seems awfully high.

Tipping isn’t mandatory, there are players that never tip.

$7 gone post flip. With $2 to the back top.
$2 of $5 gone Preflop.

Whew. I'm gonna say it ain't worth it. :p That is an awful steep rake. Is this in a local casino, poker room, bar league?

Cardroom, but they do the casino games on the side, no super degen slots.

If this is not a No Flop, No Drop game then I'd agree that I would be looking to limp/call more hands that play well multi-way and be making raises with just the top 10 hands.

Crazy rake in my opinion. I would not play there is it was my local one. Sadly, the crazy rakes some places are having will kill this game.
