      Hi!

      Anyone plays HU PLO @ FTP? Rake is capped at $0.5, but still you are paying something like $100/1k hands on PLO50HU (NL100 is about $75/1k hands) in rake.

      Is this beatable?

      Only beatable if you're heavily into game selection AND are very,very good. You didn't mention the limit that applies to your $100/1k hands figure but it sounds like a whole lot of BB's/100.

      with rakeback it should be OK. without it, your gonna struggle imo, unless you play against the really loose opponents. the nice thing about HU is that you can take large sums of cash in a short period of time. this make rake less of a problem. the tighter the game is, the more of a problem rake becomes.

      just play lags , get your money in good, and you should be fine longterm.

      Rake is 20bb/100.

      In PLO10 it's 35bb/100, and in RUSH PLO10 it's 22b/100. At least for me. The difference between PLO10 and RUSH PLO10 is in playing style, normal PLO10 is played there with LAG style and RUSH with nitty.

      So definitely beatable with rakeback. You just have to know when you have the edge and when you don't.
