Dealt Rakeback calculation is not rocket science. In fact, it is much easier than some other online poker rakeback calculations, such as contributed rakeback. All you need to know to figure out the Dealt Rakeback calculation is the number of players who received cards and the amount raked from the hand.
Dealt Rakeback has become one of the most sought after online poker Rakeback deals because of it's unique payment guidelines. Unlike all other Rakeback offers, Dealt Rakeback pays a player just for being dealt cards in the hand. Actually tossing chips into the pot is not a requirement.
Dealt Rakeback Calculation - Basics
Before we get started, let's set some variables to work with. The average rakeback deal pays 30%, and the standard poker rake is 5% up to $3.
A pot that reaches $60 will rake the max $3, and any amount higher than $60 will also be capped at a $3 rake. We'll be using these common variables
in the equations below to better teach you Dealt Rakeback calculation.
30% Dealt Rakeback
We'll quickly go over how to calculate the poker rake as well, since not every pot will reach $60. You take the pot size and divide by 5%. The result is the amount that will be taken in poker rake. For example...
$10 / 5% = $0.50 rake
$20 / 5% = $1 rake
$25 / 5% = $1.25 rake
$30 / 5% = $1.50 rake
$40 / 5% = $2 rake
$60 / 5% = $3 rake
Dealt Rakeback Calculation
Step 1: The first step in Dealt Rakeback calculation is to count how many players were dealt in the hand. This is usually the same amount of
players at the table, unless someone is sitting out. Take the total rake and divide it by this number of players. This will give you the average rake.
For example, at a 6 player hand that rakes $3:
$3 / 6 = $0.50 Average Rake
Step 2: Divide Average Rake by your Dealt Rakeback percentage. As we said, the average is 30%, so we'll divide the $0.50 Average Rake by 30% Dealt Rakeback.
$0.50 / 30% = $0.15
That's it! The player would earn $0.15 in Dealt Rakeback for this hand.
Let's try another example.
Playing heads-up (one on one), the pot reaches $25, raking $1.25.
Step 1: Divide the Rake by the Players to get the Average Rake.
$1.25 / 2 = $0.625
Step 2: Divide the Average Rake by your 30% Dealt Rakeback.
$0.625 / 30% = $0.1875 (rounded up to $0.19)
The player would receive about $0.19 in Dealt Rakeback for this hand.
Dealt Rakeback calculation is a simple 3-Step process - find the rake, find the average rake, find the Dealt Rakeback profits. The more you practice Dealt Rakeback calculation, the easier it will be to estimate the profits in your head.
