Seems off topic.

But with that said, there is no late reg with MTTs.

We can confirm that on our higher limit tables there was a modest rake increase a couple of weeks ago.

There has been no changes on the $1/$2 tables and below and in most instances the rake is still only a fraction of one big blind. These changes were made for business reasons and still keep us extremely competitive with other sites.

We appreciate your feedback that this should have been communicated more clearly than it was and have taken that on board. We are a new company and are constantly evolving so we value your feedback. To that point, we are currently updating our website and will ensure that all rake is clearly available to players once this is live.

For clarity, our current rake structure is as follows.

Small blind Big blind Rake cap
$0.02 $0.04 $3.00
$0.05 $0.10 $3.00
$0.10 $0.20 $3.00
$0.25 $0.50 $3.00
$0.50 $1.00 $3.00
$1.00 $2.00 $3.00
$2.00 $4.00 $3.50
$3.00 $6.00 $4.00
$5.00 $10.00 $4.00
$10.00 $20.00 $5.50

Thanks for your understanding and for playing on Global Poker!
you guys have miles and miles to go, clearly. the FIRST lesson to learn in this connected world is "BE PROACTIVE/HONEST/UP-FRONT". how you wouldn't know this is beyond me. this extends to the player experience which currently is the most glaring weakness of your site.

on the other hand, youre doing lotsa stuff right, like good customer support, deposits/withdrawals, fishy games.

Phil Ivey at his best is drawing stone dead paying 6bb/hand
if youre saying what I think youre saying, the comment is laughable. the rake amounts are easily beatable, especially considering the skill of the overall player base.

Nope, none of the games are beatable. Players are super super good, only ever one or two fish ever in all 100+ entry MTTs. Edges are just too small. Stay away from this site especially if you are a competent poker player. They actually pull stats from the site and the most competent poker players are shot at dawn. Don't risk it.

not sure if serious.

I can only speak for 100nl and up, and I can assure you that those levels are 1000000% "beatable".

I think my comment on good players being shot at dawn hints pretty strongly as to this is sarcasm or serious.

Re: Rake increase

LOWER THE ****ING RAKE JESUS CHRIST.
the short handed games are like impossible to beat.
they NEED to have a way to decrease rake for short handed games and HEADS UP or else there is NO reason for anyone to start a game. THATS IS BAD FOR BUSINESS
AT LEAST LOWER IT FOR HEADS UP.
AND RAKEBACK.
AND 5/10 NL.

Re: Rake increase

It took me a couple hundred hands of HU to realize it's not worth table starting on this site. Too bad this hinders overall table count on GP.

Thanks
this no longer seems to be the case. 10/20 PLO with TWO players playing is being raked $5 per pot. And, that's with a $120 pot. Single raise preflop to 60, and checked down, winner is getting $115. Almost unbeatable.

Re: Rake is 5% uncapped?

PLEASE LOWER THE RAKE AT MICROS

5% 3$ rake is effectively uncapped rake at stakes less than 100nl, makes the games much less beatable / a losing game for most players

Re: Rake is 5% uncapped?

The rake is definitely too high, the highest that I have seen online. Really needs to be lowered to a level that is competitive with the other major poker sites.

Re: Rake increase

^they currently have such a short sited view regarding the rake. They don't want to cut into their revenue, but what they aren't understanding is how many more tables would be taking off if lowered. I'm speaking only from a PLO side as I don't play NL. Once a table gets going 2 handed it usually fills up within 5 minutes from my experience. The fish typically don't want to table start or play short handed and the regs like myself aren't wanting to battle with this crazy rake. You are so far off the industry standard...grow your site don't rake it to death already.
