As you may or may not be aware, our limit rake structure has long been out of touch with the structures provided by other industry leading poker sites.
For quite some time, we at CarbonPoker have been lobbying hard to have this changed. Working with our partners at Drag The Bar, Hunter Bick in particular, we have put many hours into the review of our current structure, competitive analysis throughout the industry, and with discussions with some of our most loyal customers.
All of this hard work by Hunter and our team has finally paid dividends, with Merge now agreeing to our request for change. The approval was given the green light a couple of weeks ago, and after final review and QA testing, will finally been pushed live into the game client at 12am tomorrow morning.
There were initially reports that this change would only apply to Limit Hold’em games. This, while true at the time, is no longer the case. Whilst we were reviewing the LHE structure, we were also reviewing all other limit variations as well. We just were not certain that we would be able to roll out a change across all limit game variations at the same time. Thankfully, those fears were put to rest, and this change will now be made across all fixed limit game variations, such as; Omaha, Omaha8, 5-Stud, 7-Stud, Stud H/L8, Razz, HORSE, HA, HOSE, SHOE, HO, A-5 Lowball, 2-7 Lowball, 5-Draw, 5-Draw w/Joker, HAR, RASH. Thanks also go to Big Bad Babar from 2+2 that spent lots of time and effort putting together some mixed game competitive analysis.
Overall, we are exceptionally happy with these changes that Merge are making, and feel that it will now puts us in a position to offer some of the best value fixed limit games, in relation to any of our competitors, worldwide.

We understand and appreciate that these changes were long overdue, and thank everyone for their continued patience and support whilst we lobbied to have these changes made.
Best of luck at the tables!
