Profit Playing Break Even Poker

When you play poker online you pay a fee to the poker room for each hand you play. Many players pay several thousand pounds in rake each month. The good news is that you now can get up to 60% of your rake back. So it’s simple really, only play in poker rooms that pay rakeback. With an account in place, your rakeback money will be paid automatically to your poker account once a month.

I’m a break even player. I play small stakes. I’ve played over 200,000 online hands of poker over the last 12 months. I’ve had a little help too – but more of that at another time. I show a profit over all my poker accounts of just over $2000. My rakeback has paid me $8000. Now that makes it worthwhile – just! I use Rakebrain to manage my rakeback from the poker sites I use.

The Independent rooms I play at include Betfair Poker for a rakeback of 30 – 37%, Full Tilt Poker for 27%, PKR for 30% and Ultimate Bet for 30%. Betfair do not accept US players but the others do. Then at Absolute Poker I get 30% rakeback and the Cake Poker network also.

On the Cryptologic network I play at BetSafe, Inter Poker and Sun Poker. All 30% rakeback. In the IPN/Boss network all for 30% rakeback I play at Poker Heaven, CelebPoker, Fortune Poker and Paradise Poker. None of these take US players. Then finally at Carbon Poker who do take US players for 30% rakeback.

The great news is your rakeback can be managed for all these rooms in one place at Rakebrain. Matt Kellerman signed up with Rakebrain in April 2006 and ever since then the rakeback has been rolling into his account each month like clockwork. And Tobias Skogsberg also got rakeback money for the first time through Rakebrain last month and he feels really bad about all the time he spent playing online poker without getting rakeback.

And it gets better. You can get a sign up bonus of up to $1500! But this is very important. If you already have the poker room’s client on your computer, uninstall the old software. To get rakeback, the software must be downloaded through, which is why previous installations have to be removed.

This is part of a series of articles I have written on Poker. The topics that will be covered over the rest of this year will include poker bots – not welcomed at any poker site, allegedly – poker calculators and the storage of poker statistics so you can easily pull up the details on every player even if you’ve never played them before. Stay tuned, stay safe and good luck to you all, as always.
