PartyPoker - De un rake conveniente a uno muy abusivo.

Cómo les conté en una de las entradas anteriores, empecé a jugar en la sala PartyPoker en el nivel de limit $0.05/$0.10.

A finales de marzo me inscribí con pokerstrategy en PartyPoker con una promoción que me ingresaban $50 y que podía optar por $100 extras si hacía 5000 manos raked. Me pareció una muy buena oportunidad. Hice algunas tonterías probando el software de PartyPoker y en solo media hora había perdido $15 jugando NL10… sí, es que soy muy bruto. Luego ya me puse en orden a jugar lo que tenía que jugar. Jugué durante una semana y me fue bastante bien, noté que los jugadores eran un poco más tight que lo que estaba acostumbrado en PokerStars y se iba muy fácilmente ante muestras de agresividad. Tuve unas ochocientas manos con unas ganancias sobre las 50BB (6BB/100manos). Al parecer fue solamente una buena racha, porque luego no volví a ver esos jugadores pasivos y me estaba enfrentando otra vez con jugadores más parecidos a los de $0.02/0.04 de Stars y tuve un bajón y llegué a estar a 2.5BB/100manos cuando había jugado unas 1800 manos.

Por dos semanas no jugué nada, estuve de viaje en Suiza. Ahora que volví hace 6 días, jugué hasta ayer 3368 manos con ganancias de $12.77 para una razón de 3.79BB/100manos.

Hasta aquí todo muy bien. El problema se presentó precisamente hoy. Me llevé la mala sorpresa que hoy PartyPoker cambió el cálculo del rake. Party había estado calculando el rake como el 5% del bote si este era mayor a $1 ($0.05 para entre $1-$1.99, $0.10 si este era entre $2-$2.99 y así). Así, en las 4604 manos que había jugado en este nivel hasta ayer, los botes habían alcanzado la suma de $3231.52 ( $0.7019 por mano), cobrando Party un rake total de $58.40. Este rake representa el 1.78% de cada bote.
Hoy cuando entré al Party y vi que estaban cobrando 10% de rake para todos los botes me molesté mucho, no avisaron nada y además es un cobro abusivo. Me desconcentré y perdí unas cuantas manos; iba a desconectarme pero preferí jugar una hora para ver el efecto del rake. Al final jugué 349 manos, con ganancias de 19.1BB para una razón de 5.47BB/100manos. En esas manos los botes llegaron a la suma de $220.3 ($0.6931 por mano), el rake cobrado por la sala ascendió a $21.58 que viene a ser 8.92% de cada bote. ¿Cómo se llama eso?. ABUSO.

Para entender bien la dimensión del Rake que está cobrando Party solo basta ver ese 9.80BB/100manos por cada jugador. Esto es, si cada jugador jugara igual, todos perderían aproximadamente 9.80BB cada 100 manos. Comparado con los 1.81BB del rake anterior –que con buen juego se puede recuperar-, se puede afirmar con casi total confianza que todos los jugadores de limit $0.05/$0.10 en PartyPoker son jugadores perdedores. Yo por ahora no voy a jugar más ahí en ese nivel, no quiero comprobar que de verdad voy a terminar perdiendo.
