Question by pokerthai: How would i calculate the average hourly rake at a live poker game, are there any formula or stats?
For example: the game is \$ 1 \$ 2 no limit holdem with 9 players, and the dealer can get out 30 hands an hour but no flop no drop and the rake is 10% up to \$ 4 Maximum. What would this table be raking on average per hour, is there a formula. This is a live game

There is no formula for this, since it changes depending on the players at the table, and how the table is playing.

but what you can do is get averages. Figure out how many pots per hour go to the flop.

Take the average pot size from these pots, and use that.

From all the 1-2 games I play I’d say almost every hand that goes to the flop is over \$ 40. Since anything above \$ 40 has to be treated as \$ 40 (since there is no cap) the average will be between \$ 3 and \$ 4. out of 30 hands per hour, chances are 10 of them are going to the flop.

I’d guess you’re running at around \$ 40 an hour rake at that game.

That’s \$ 4 per hour per person (as long as there’s 10 of you)

What do you think? Answer below!
