I think you are not looking at the cash game rake correctly. Not sure what is the exact number, but it is now as low as you say.

You need to consider that you get points for every raked hand that you played.

That means that even though you only contributed 10 cents into the 100 dollar pot, you still get the full points from the rake generated by the 100 dollar pot.

I think at the end of the day it should work out to about the same as the tournament points awarded.

what u mean is, $5 rake from pot, each person gets 32 points?

so if i play FR, raking $1 gives me 32/(5/9) = 57.6 points?

doesn't make much sense, worse case scenario:

if 350points clears $5 of rake, meaning to say 350/57.6 = 6.07, so for every $6.07 rake we generate, we get 5 back?

bestcase scenario:

and if we calculate using $0.02 rake from pot, each person gets 0.2 points,

then in fr, 0.2/(0.02/9) = 90 points.

and clearing of bonus would be 350/90 = 3.888. and for every $3.88 rake we generate, we get $5 back??

below is the table from the site

$0.01 - $0.02 0.2

$0.03 - $0.05 0.50

$0.06 - $0.1 0.70

$0.11 - $0.20 1.0

$0.21 - $0.50 2.5

$0.51 - $0.75 4.5

$0.76 - $1.00 6.0

$1.01 - $1.25 8.0

$1.26 - $1.50 9.5

$1.51 - $1.75 11.0

$1.76 - $2.00 13.0

$2.01 - $2.25 14.5

$2.26 - $2.50 16.0

$2.51 - $2.75 20.0

$2.76 - $3.00 24.0

$3.01 - $5.00 32.0
