There are two types of rake
charged by the poker programs: Alta and Contributed.
Alta: In this way, those who receive cards in the hand played will be considered as paying rake. That is, if you're in a game of Dezza people and receive letters, and this hand was generated rake of $ 1, it is assumed that each player has generated $ 0.10 of rake. That even if he has folded early in the hand without betting anything.
Contributed: This type of rake value is defined by participation in the pot. If you bet $ 10 and the final pot was $ 20, 50% of the rake is set to yours. In this way you generate more rake per hand, but this does not fold if he has not bet anything.
For tournaments, both types work the same way.
What is the best for you? Depends on your style of play. If you play only tournaments, both types are irrelevant. If you play cash games and is more conservative, perhaps the kind of Alta is more profitable. We suggest you test the two types with different rooms and see what brings you more profit.
