Texas Hold'em Poker Rake Structure

Rake is a fee collected from hands according to the rake chart.

What is considered as Rake hand?

A hand in which rake was taking out from the pot is considered as a rake hand. A player is considered to play a rake hand if a hand has generated at least 0.01 in rake for that player when cards were dealt.

When Rake is calculating?

  • If the pot size is more than or equal to preset one for such type of game and number of players.
