At the \$1.50 NL Hold'em [Turbo, Fifty50] there are 10 players with buy-in \$1.39+\$0.11 giving us a total price pool of 1.39*10=13.90 . However first 5 players are paid out their buy-in without rake + 0.04 per 100chips, this adds up to: 5*1,39 + 0.04 * ((1500*10)/100)= 6,95 + 6 = 12,95 . So the players pay 15 dollars, price pool is supposed to be 13,90 and than they only pay out 12,95??? Maybe i didnt see something and/or i am miscalculating, in that case i am sorry beforehand. If my calculations are correct players are paying (2,05/15=)13,7% rake instead of (1,1/15=) 7,3%, which i feel is very dishonest and frankly a scam. Last edited by Lego05; 07-17-2017 at 04:40 PM.

According to the PS website, your calculation method is wrong.

The value displayed in the Fifty50 tournament lobby is rounded down to the nearest cent, but payouts are calculated so that the entire prize pool is paid out. Note that the final payouts may experience small rounding differences in order to ensure that the total payouts equal the prize pool.
