Poker rooms use several different methods to calculate rake.
Americas Cardroom uses the Qualified Raked Hand in which players dealt to a ring game earn credit for one QRH where the pot is raked $1 or more. Players earn a proportional credit toward a QRH where the pot is raked less than a $1, e.g. where the pot is raked $0.50, each player dealt in earns 1/2 of a QRH credit.
Americas Cardroom review
Launched way back in 2001, Americas Cardroom is quite possibly the oldest online poker room destined for US players. In its current shape and form though, the site is a relatively new destination: it joined the Yatahay Poker network in August 2011. The Yatahay network has indeed been around the online poker block a few times: it was launched 11 years ago.
Americas Cardroom is currently one of the few online poker sites which accept players from all over the world, yes, even from the US.
Americas Cardroom is powered by the updated Yatahay poker software, which features simplistic but solid graphics and pretty much all the perks one may expect from a modern online poker room. There are resizable tables which grinders will definitely appreciate, there’s fold/show functionality and something known as straddle tables. Hand histories can be saved for later analysis and taking notes on one’s opponents is possible too.
Americas Cardroom offers a decent sign-up bonus, up to a pretty impressive maximum, but what we’re really interested in is the Americas Cardroom rakeback which does indeed offer plenty of extra value.
In addition to the above said promotions, Americas Cardroom offers plenty of freerolls and high buy-in guaranteed MTTs which tournament players will certainly appreciate. There are bad beat jackpots on offer too, as well as poker point races, which add a new dimension to the Americas Cardroom rake rebate deal.
Besides the usual dose of SNGs and MTTs, Americas Cardroom offers some special tournaments too: there are events which are limited to a certain number of preset hands (whoever has the most chips when the hand limit is reached wins) and time-limited tournaments too. Although these tourney formats are hardly original, they do indeed bring a breath of fresh air to the green felt.
Americas Cardroom support can be reached via email, phone or live chat. The site also features an exhaustive FAQ section.
