Rake

The rake or "chop" is the house's cut of each and every pot. A hand where a rake is taken is called a raked hand. The raked amount is subject to certain conditions. In general, a rake of 5% of the pot is taken, as long as the pot has exceeded a predetermined size. The maximum rake per hand limit is also determined by the particular establishment and by the limit being played. A cardroom will not take a percentage rake when a hand does not have a flop. This is called "no flop, no drop"

Rake types:

Dealt rake: The rake collected at the end of a hand will be taken equally from all players who have been dealt into the hand.

Simple contributed:
The rake collected at the end of a hand will
be taken equally from all players who have invested money in the pot.

Weighted contributed:
The rake collected at the end of a hand
will be taken from all players who have invested money in the pot, but calculated
proportionately by the amount of money invested.

Actual rake: The rake of a hand will be assigned in full (100%) to the
winner of the hand.
