Poker rooms use several different methods to calculate rake. It is essential to be familiar with the method used because it has an effect on your player MGR and rakeback.
Qualified Raked Hand: Players dealt to a ring game earn credit for one QRH where the pot is raked $1 or more. Players earn a proportional credit toward a QRH where the pot is raked less than a $1, e.g. where the pot is raked $0.50, each player dealt in earns 1/2 of a QRH credit.
True Poker review
True Poker is one of the smaller poker rooms which keep accepting US players. While they do indeed accept players from all over the US and they facilitate their transactions with a special, recently introduced iCheck solution, residents from the Commonwealth of Kentucky are not accepted. The room itself has a small community feel, and despite the lack of substantial traffic, the fish factor is good: there are plenty of aggressive and weak players.
True Poker used to be a small limit room only, but they’ve recently added $10, $25 and $50 NL tables, so if you’re looking to play for serious money, you can do it at True Poker now.
True Poker’s software used to feature a first generation fully 3D interface, which –for a while – was the main selling point of the site. That software has been replaced with a 2D one, which rocks a much more modern look. There are no customizable avatars in it, but overall the look is cleaner and players can focus more on what they want to achieve at the table. As a result of the new software, game speed is up now and given the resizable tables, multi tabling has become a winning proposition at the site.
Promotions-wise, True Poker has plenty to offer. There’s "The Beast" progressive points race, a bad beat jackpot and new players are granted access to a number of freerolls in addition the sign-up bonus. The bankroll builder tournaments give players the opportunity to take down decent prizes for a $1.1 buy-in.
The best thing about True Poker though is the True Poker rakeback. The rakeback True Poker gives you is transferred into your True Poker account automatically, there’s no need to claim it in any way. Your True Poker rakeback will do you a great favor when you take part in rake races, as there are plenty of those running at True Poker.
The True Poker bonus is quite generous, and more importantly, it is relatively easy to redeem. The amount itself may not be overly impressive, but the redemption rate seems to be very reasonable, one of the best the online poker industry has to offer.
In conclusion: The sign up bonus and the True Poker rake back represent a couple of good enough reasons to join this room. The downside is that the tournament schedule is kind of sparse, and overall traffic is low. Make sure you play at peak hours to make the most of it.
