The rakeback in micro stakes

If you are one of those who plays microlimits, you have to look for the best poker rakeback in the market. With this agreement you can multiply your winnings by playing the same tables. Here's an example: 

A player who does 50k hands in nl25, generate about 1500 rake.
With a 40% rakeback he gets €600€, it means:
24 stacks (in nl25 eack stack is €25) and 2400 bb (in nl25 each big blind is €0,25) 


*Winnings are measured in bb/100 = big blinds every 100 hands 

Before we begin to delve into this topic, we need to know about some basics in poker. So... there we go with a little poker for dummies (if you already manage these concepts, skip this chart and continue reading below):

Basics in poker

  • Rake: Money or percentage that a poker room claims  as a commission, or a portion of the buy in case of a tournament for the same concept.

  • Rakeback: this is the part of the comission wich is refunded

  • Stack: Number of chips or money a player can use on a table.

  • Blind: An obligatory bet (or partial bet) placed by one or more players before the cards are dealt. Normally, the blinds are placed by the players immediately seat to the left of the dealer.

  • Big Blind: The largest  two "blinds" normally used in a Hold'em game. The big blind is usually a full bet on the first round.

  • Small Blind: The smallest blinds normally used in a Hold'em game. Usually, the small blind is a third or two-thirds of the first round bet.

Improve your profit rate with a better rakeback 

If you play micro stakes without any rakeback (0% rakeback), your profit rate is going to get substantially worse. So, we advise you before you launch to play, wait a moment and look for the best rakeback deal in the market. Maybe your current profit rate is 3 or 4 bb/100 and only with 40% rakeback (as the example we put earlier) you would be up 4.8 bb/100. Come on, you would earn more than the double;)
