Online poker is a ghost of what it could be and once was. When Party Poker raised the rake in the 6 max from 2-3 and increased the number of 6 max tables, that produced an extra $250,000 per day in extra rake. Didn't that hurt the games just a bit?? The rake killed online period.

ok, here comes the name calling part. of course the games aren't that small in the casino. in the casino, the live ones have to play bigger and you get a shot at that money. NOW, half of the live ones at least play in games that nobody can beat because of the rake.

find me a brick and mortar casino where the rake is 6 times the big blind or 50 times the big blind.

Do they rake/pot or per hour in the live games you are talking about?

I don't understand why rake has "killed" online poker. Last I checked all limits $.01/$.02 to $10/$20 were beatable, even after the rake.

Online sucks because rake greed killed it.

In Nov 05, Party started taking $250,000 more per day. Didn't that hurt the games?

One big problem about discussing the topic on here is that a lot of people are on the payroll through the sites or through affiliate programs, etc, so of course they are going to defend the present rip off system. Keep up the name calling. I'm not going to budge.
