What is rake?
Rake is a commission that Chipstars takes for all poker games. Rake is accumulated by a player's activity in cash or tournament games.
How do we calculate rake?
Cash: Chipstars is following the trend No Flop, No Drop rule, meaning that we do not collect a commission (rake) on the cash game tables before the flop. All cash game tables have a post-flop rake of 5%. However, the total amount of rake collected in a single hand is capped according to the table’s stakes and a number of players at the table.
Chipstars Rake/Cap 5%
|Blind||1-2 Players||3-6 Players||6-9 Players|
Tournaments: Rake is always indicated in the buy-in amount of the tournament window or in a tournament name. This type of rake is being calculated at the moment you register for the tournament (normal reg or late reg its the same) For example a 20€ + 2€ tournament will have 20€ added to the prize pool and €2 of rake.
Chipstars always charges rake fee 10% from the overall sum of buy-in.
