What to watch out for when becoming a poker prop

Posted on October 5, 2009

Because prop players are paid through rakeback, the way the room calculates their individual rake contributions is extremely important for them. There are three basic ways poker rooms use to calculate your contributed rake and thus your rakeback too: the dealt rake method, the contributed rake method and the weighted contributed rake method.
Make sure you’re aware which of these methods suits your playing style the best, and that you take it into consideration when you’re signing up to become a prop. The dealt method can take passive players on a free ride, and believe me, a more than 100% rakeback deal radically changes the odds and the optimal strategy approach on every single hand. Once you adapt to the circumstances created by the out of this world rakeback, you’ll understand why so many previously losing players become winners thanks to poker prop deals.
