Increasing your Weighted Contributed Rakeback
As this method rewards those players who have contributed the most to a raked pot with the most rake contribution % it is a very different method to the other types (Dealt and Average Rake). This method rewards those players who pay to play a lot of hands, see a lot of flops, but it really rewards those who are then involved in a lot of action (raising, reraising and calling large bets down to the river and the showdown). The more money you put into the raked pot the higher will be your rakeback. It does not help to increase the rakeback of those players who are very tight, unlike the Dealt Rake Method.
If you are a player who does play a lot of hands but will fold a high % on the flop then the Weighted Contributed Method is also good for you. As you will get more rake and rakeback with this method than you would with the Contributed Method and the Dealt Rake Method as you are putting in more money than the others at the table and so you get a higher share of the rake.
If you are a tight player who folds a lot pre flop then this method may at first not appear to be great for you but when you do enter a pot, either through posting blinds or calling to see a flop then you may get a higher % of the rake than you may have done with the other methods where the rake is shared out. Obviously when you get involved with a hand and get action from other players you will get a much larger % of the rake, so this can compensate for the hands when you do not get any rake.
If you are multi-tabling then the fact that you can get a much higher % of the rake when involved in a hand means you can offset the lower rake per individual hand.
Cash Table Stakes and Game types
If you play a lot of hands or when you get involved with a hand you are very aggressive then this type of rake calculation method is important. You need to play at tables and against players who will call or re raise you, increase the pot, your rake and rakeback. Short handed tables (6 seaters for example) have a higher than average number of action players. Combine the action, your playing style, the rake contribution method and your RakeMeBack rakeback deal and you can dramatically increse your rakeback payments and poker profits.
You also need to play at cash game limits where each hand you enter has a good chance of being raked. All sites have different values for this so you need to check out that information. If you play Fixed Limit Holdem you will normally have to play at a higher cash game limit than compared to NL Holdem or PL Omaha.
