Betfair Poker Low Stakes Limits
The limit structure at Betfair Poker reflects their desire to attract players of all abilities and bankrolls. Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit games start as low as $0.02/$0.04.
The industry standard of 5% rake is generally applied at Betfair Poker. No matter what table or limit, the rake will never exceed $3. At the micro limits, through to $0.05/$0.10, a maximum of $0.10 is raked. The $0.10/$0.20 tables are raked at a maximum of $0.20 and all other tables are raked up to a maximum of $1 to $3 (at a rate of 5%). As is common in most online poker rooms, Betfair Poker does not collect a rake if no flop is dealt for a given hand.
The recent move to the OnGame Network boosted the player pool significantly. Players can still find many loose poker players attracted to Betfair through their huge Sports Betting system. Soft opposition combined with excellent tournaments and frequent promotions should keep players coming back to Betfair Poker.
