partypoker rakeAs of today PartyPoker have changed the way rake is calculated when playing cash games on the popular online poker site. There are generally two ways online poker rooms calculate rake either Dealt Rake or Weighted Contributed Rake, for many years Party Poker rake has be calculated using the Dealt Rake system which many players will find unfair because the total table rake for each hand in divided up into equal percentages amongst all the players at the table.

Weighted Contributed Rake on the other hand is calculated based on each players contribution to the pot, so players rake percentage varies according to how much they have invested in the hand.

With the new changes to the PartyPoker rake calculations and structure you may want to participate in the PartyPoker The Accelerator promotion which takes place in September, there is up to $10,000 in cash to be won plus entries into PartyPoker freerolls with prize pools up to $25,000.

New Party Poker Rake Calculation

The new changes are much better for looser players who are creating action at the tables by playing more poker hands, in the past tighter players could sit back and let the Maniac Poker players generate table rake and benefit from it. The new changes should increase the overall action at the PartyPoker cash game tables. So all the online poker nits better start mixing it up and widen their range of hands they play if they wish to earn PartyPoints and rake.

The Dealt Rake method of calculating rake at PartyPoker will be replaced by Weighted Contributed Rake this Wednesday 24 August 2011, so start grinding today to benefit from all the Party Poker rewards.

Dealt Rake

Dealt Rake is calculated by the total table rake generated each hand and is then equally divided amongst all players the dealt into that hand.

Weighted Contributed Rake

Weighted Contributed Rake is calculated by the amount the player contributes to the pot in each hand, and only players who are involved with contributing to the pot benefit.
