Rake Review

PokerStars rake in micro limit cash games is better than other poker sites.  They also offer a no flop - no flop policy. There is great micro limit low rakes and fees - but choose carefully.  Heads up cash games are great too with a max rake of $.50.  Tournaments and Sit and Gos are about average with most games under $100 at about a 10% fee.  Above that level the rake declines from 9% at $100 to 4.5% for the $2000 + 90 Sit N Go.  Overall PokerStars has the best rake structure for micro limit players, and better than average rakes for higher limit cash games.
