      So I checked the rake for both sites, and both have 4.5% at micros but Ladbrokes has lower caps, despite stars claiming they have the lowest rake.

      Is this true, or maybe the way Ladbrokes rake works means that it takes more rake somehow?

      If it is similar/slightly lower rake, then 30% rakeback via PS then 30% rakeback through FDB then it seems like I will move there.

      Is traffic there ok at NL10 and NL25?

      cash game traffic is ok esp if you like anonymous tables + lots of horrible players. but keep in mind that microgaming don't have waiting list (to avoid grinders)

      the Rakecap is just good at the absolute Micros. at $0.02/0.04 its capped at 10ct. all above is $3.00! with only a few exceptions.

      What, that's not what I am seeing

      £0.01/£0.02 3.50% £0.20 £0.20 £0.20
      £0.02/£0.04 4.15% £0.30 £0.30 £0.65
      £0.05/£0.10 4.50% £0.30 £0.65 £1
      £0.10/£0.20 4.50% £0.30 £0.65 £1.25
      £0.20/£0.40 4.50% £0.30 £1 £1.50
      £0.25/£0.50 4.50% £0.30 £1 £1.50

      The rake caps are 1 pound at NL10, so I imagine it'd be the same for US$

      I made a fault with typing $ instead of €. But the Rakecap of €0,10 is correct on NL/PLO4.

      Watch the small columns in the link above the column for £-Rake. Anyway, the £-Tables have not a lot of players, because these tables should be Ladbrokes-Exclusive tables. These tables are not visible at 24h for example.
