      I don't think so as there are world tabs aswell.I think they are just for Europeans that want to use whatever currency their bankroll is in, ie Euros or Pounds.

      dont particuarly like it when i first loaded up the client i thought the US dollar tables were removed completely after thinking something was wrong with my filters. Only after a while did i notice the world tabs so i guess the fish will always just fire up the tables they see first i.e. the european tables so actually a pretty good ploy by ipoker to generate more rake but bad for the reg.

      the europeean tables were added because of the many players that use daily Euros as currency, and get confused when seeing $ at the tables than, when exiting a table exchange the $ chips into Euros again win some, lose some cause of the xchange rate that changes daily... so problem solved for the most important currencies USD EUR and GBP, personally i think it's a great idea. if ones country uses EUR everywhere in every shop, i think it's only fair to let them play in their currency... :club: :diamond:

      I love ipoker, they introduce € table so we wouldn´t loose money thought the exchange rate everytime we leave a table, but stick it to us by having higher rake @ € tables. Hopefully this isn´t true, and if it is: Good job titan on finding another way to take more money from us. :s_mad: Thank god I play very rarely at titan.

      The rake is exactly the same (X-amount of units). Ok so $1 of rake is 1 Euro on euro table...but you also win and lose at 1.5x the rate if your in the dollar. Personally i dont understand why europeans would continue playing in USD every day that there do it there lossing money. Euro = Higherstakes softer games.

      Not true:

      5$ pot => 3$ rake
      50€ pot = 75$ pot => 3€ rake = 4,50$ rake


      ergo: If you reach the rakecap in every hand, rake is 50% higher.

      1) You mean 50$ => $3

      2) 50 euro pot = 3 euro rake = $4.50...yes. BUT....50euro pot = $75 pot

      So.....$75 pot = $4.50...which makes it the same...

      You carnt say you pay more rake with euro just buy saying you pay more in a 50 euro pot than a 50 dollar pot...you have you convert the dollar pot.

      50 euro pot = $75 pot

      $75 pot = $4.50 rake

      50 euro pot = 3 euro rake = $4.50 rake ;)

      That's also not true because of the rakecap you also just pay 3$ in a 75$ pot

      There will also be a rake cap on euro. There is no diffrence. Nl20 euro is just like NL30$$$.

      been raked $3 in a $50 pot and raked 3 euro in a 50euro pot is the same. your paying 1.5x more rake but your winning 1.5x more from the pot. How do you not understand this???????

      anstaendig is right.
      $75 pot -> $3 capped rake
      50 euro pot=$75 pot -> 3 euro capped rake=$4.5 capped rake.

      So you pay 50% more rake if you play on tables where the rake is usually maxed out.

      Edit: I was too late on replying.
