27 November 2017

Rake refers to the amount taken out of the pot for a hand played or the fee charged for a poker tournament. 

The more rake a user pays, the more HighStakes Coins a user earns and these coins can be redeemed in the Store for items like Cash Game Tickets, HighStakes merchandise and more.

HighStakes has two types of tables; General tables and Low Rake tables. Users can identify the low rake tables, by the table name which states "Low Rake" and has the HighStakes icon in the lobby. An example is below:

No Flop, No Drop & Rake Attribution

  • No rake is charged if action finishes before the flop.
  • Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold’em cash games are raked at 5% after the flop.
  • For each pot, the rake is calculated in function of each player’s contribution to the pot

Cash Game Rake Example:

The below example will show how the rake attribution method functions on HighStakes

  • Player A puts €2 to the pot, 
  • Player B puts €3 to the pot. 
  • The total pot is €5
  • 5% rake from this pot is €0.25
  • Player A pays 40% rake - €0.10 
  • Player B pays 60% rake - €0.15.
Note: In reality if Player A won the pot, the user would be rewarded with €4.75, however the above example shows how this €0.25 of rake would be attributed for the purpose of the HighStakes VIP Program.

Tournament Fees

Fees charged on MTTs at HighStakes are typically between 5-10% of the buy-in amount

We anticipate tournaments to have overlays and a significant amount of the fees are used to guard against this and of course the HighStakes VIP Program is applicable to all tournaments played on the site.
