In this edition of poker rake comparisons, we have PartyPoker going up against industry goliath, PokerStars. Using some of the most popular poker games and stakes as comparisons, we will determine which site offers more favorable rake for which games.
|Note that these rake figures are averages, and each player's style will affect their rake paid. In general, tighter players will pay less rake than loose players.|
|Stake||6-Max NLHE (bb/100)|
PokerStars wins at every stake for 6-max NLHE. Not much to interpret here, PokerStars takes this category.
|Stake||Full Ring NLHE (bb/100)|
Another sweep for PokerStars as they take every stake for full ring NLHE as well.
|Stake||PLO (6-Max) (bb/100)|
Cue the broken record, PokerStars wins once again at every stake, this time in the PLO 6-max category.
Party Poker shows life by edging out PokerStars in the under $7 tournament rake category by one percentage point (11% vs. 12%). They fall short in the rest of the buy-in categories, however, giving PokerStars the overall nod in this category.
With clean sweeps in all the cash game categories and an overall win in the tournament category, PokerStars takes down Party Poker in our rake comparison.
