      next month I am going to melbourn and I checked the local casino's time schedule, and found out most mtt is like 40+10, 80+20 ,100+25,170+30
      so that means 25% rake.


      As I know most live casino mtt players are very fishy, but is it 25% rake really profitable? Or is it just pure wasting money and time?

      what about those 170+30 (17.6% rake)

      In you guys consideration what percentage of rake would be considered profitable?

      oh, by the way another question , in casino the game with 1000 plus buyins the rake would be lower ,however is that kind of game have more shark? is low stake tournament more fishy?
      and I dont have too much bank roll in live tournament

      Obviously a tournament with 1k$ buyin is harder then a tournament with 100$ buyin.

      Personally I would only play the low buyin tournaments for the lolz. There is no big value in them with such a high rake. At the same time you should still be able to play them profitably if you are good enough.

      I think it is still profitable too because
      even the cash game low stake charge 10% , high stake (2/3 plus level) charge 5% rake plus 5 dollar per hour entry fee.

      so 25% rake is no a big deal. considering tournament have a lot of allin and change hand of chips, 25% rake is still much lower than the cash game in my opinion



      One of the reason I like to play sng or mtt (especially mtt)in ps is that actually the rake is way way lower than cash game :s_biggrin:
