      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
