# Bonus and Rakeback FAQ

{slide = what is the difference between the 'rake share' and 'rake rebate'?}
There are two ways to calculate rakeback. Most sites use either of these methods to calculate your rakeback. Read the "small writings" on the sites for the operation of the site.

{slide = Rake share}
Back (rakeback) is calculated according to the number of players who were dealt cards. For example, 10 players receive cards, 2 go to the flop and the pot rake is \$ 3. According to the share rake, rake of \$ 3 will be divided by the number of players who received cards; 30 ¢ per player. If your rakeback site is 25% for example, you will receive 25% of 30 ¢ for this hand (~ 8 ¢).

{slide = Rake rebate}
Back (rakeback) is calculated according to the contribution of players to the rake. For example, according to the example above, according to the rake rebate, the rake of \$ 3 will be divided by the contribution of players - here the two players paid \$ 1.50 rake. If your rakeback site is 25% for example, you will receive 25% of 1.50 ¢ for this hand (~ 37 ¢).

{slide = what is better, rake rebate or rake share?}
It depends on several factors. Generally, for 'normal' players in parts to more than 6 players, the share rake will be more profitable with the exception of aggressive shorthanded players. For example, in a program of rake share, Ms. Agression plays aggressively and sees all the pots and pay a lot of rake. His RB will be calculated on 1/6 of the pot. Mr. tight which only sees a flop out of 10 will have the same return. On the other hand, with the rake rebate, the assault Ms. RB will be 1/3 or 1/2 according to the number of players who did not fold preflop. Mr. Tight will almost have no money as it almost never contributes to the pot...
