      worst payout system ever for a rake race.

      500 places is way too much for 10k race. Should be way more top heavy since bottom 300-400 places seem too pointless even for micro grinders.

      I disagree here mainly because it gives more people a chance to cash and to race up that leaderboard. I find it very off putting that only x amount get paid in the top-heavy races.

      My own personal opinion of course.

      Is this just based on absolute value of rake raised in that time period?

      I still stand by my point that most of the smaller places do not have any meaning or value even for micro grinders. There is no value to cashing in a race if the payment does not have any meaning. If you want to make it larger field race you could use for 10k the same distribution as Betfair skill and go for 200 people, what IMO already is way too many people for 10k race.

      Since it is form of extra RB adding to usual rakeraces and SNG leagues, its good addition, but still I can not see value for the payout distribution from different perspectives.

      PS! Is the race for SNGs played, rake generated for 2 weeks

      Hi guys,

      I'll have a look around for more information regarding the rake race.


      Be back soon,

      Hey MP89EST ,

      The race positions are worked out using this formula.

      3. Leaderboard points will be awarded according to the following formula: Points = ((Prizepool0,8) / (Place Finished0,5))*0,1

      Source

      Hope this helps

      Regards

      Callum

      Everything is fine Gary thanks for asking!
      One more thing. Does each room has a separate leader board, or is it one for both?

      Hey again,

      Glad everything is going well :)

      I would imagine the leaderboard is not seperated as all rooms are running the same promotion ;)


      Hope this helps,

      I agree with MP89EST, very little value in this. I've raked ~600 this month and I am currently in ~250th place, wich would give me a 6$ ticket, not a great rakeback..
