I don't understand why sites don't just do some kind of % session rake instead of game by game. Any site that did would surely attract loads of players pretty qucikly, would still make a decent profit, and would have the liquidity to attract lots of casual players looking to jump into games just like in poker.
Just rake per session rather than per game like Betfair does on sports markets. Whole situation with online backgammon seems totally and utterly insane in my opinion. Why has no one started a site with fair rakes?
