The first question a novice poker player would ask when hearing about Rake in poker is, what is rake and how does it affect me?  The answer most people in the know would give is, a rake is a percentage of chips taken out of each pot/ charged in the tournament buy-in that the casino/ online room keeps.

They are there to make money, so this is the way they charge players something for playing poker and this is where the rake comes in.  The amount charged can vary depending the value of the tournament entered or the amount put into each pot on cash tables, with a maximum rake amount put in place by the house.

The rake can seem a very small amount to people playing lower value tables but after time this soon adds up.  The amount taken from players, playing in some of the high value cash games and tournaments, can sometimes add up to a couple of thousand dollars during one month‘s play.

This is why a lot of online poker players have signed up to websites, which have opened up offering a Pay No Rake Bonus Code or a fair percentage of what was raked during there time at that specific card room.  This is beneficial to both the player for obvious reasons and the card room due to increased traffic directed to there site.  This is something every player of all bank rolls should look into doing to make the most of the money they deposit to play poker.

To look at getting rakeback on your poker play then you’re best to head over to a rakeback comparison site such as RakebackDealer to find the best rakeback deal for your situation.
