And I also want to know to make \$50 of rake. Could you tell me, please?

Cash games:

In every pot that sees a flop the poker site takes a certain percentage of the pot to keep for itself. This is how the poker site makes money eg

6 handed 5c / 10c blinds table 3 players fold
Button raises to 30c
sb folds
BB calls

Pot = 65c
house takes 5c rake

net pot left = 60c

This 5c is divided between either all 6 players delt in (>1c each) or the 3 players who put in money (2c each) depending on the poker room

Tournaments & Sit N Go's

Tournament fee is \$1 + .1. You pay \$1.10 to enter the tournament. \$1 goes to the prize pool the other 10c goes to the house.

You have paid 10c in 'rake'

hope this helps
