How is the prize pool of the The Beast race formed?

There is no additional fee for participation in the race. The commission for the participants of the race is deducted from the rake that the players already pay during the regular game.

The amount of the race commission varies depending on the number of players at the table:

  • 2 players — $0.02 of $0.06 rake — max $0.04 per hand
  • 3 players — $0.02 of $0.06 rake — max $0.08 per hand
  • 4 players or more — $0.02 of $0.06 rake — max $0.24 per hand

How to earn points?

For every $0.02 Weighted Contributed Rake, the player is awarded 1 point.

For example: 9-max, $0.50/$1.

5 players folded preflop and 4 posted 1 big blind ($1). On the flop, the first player shoved for $50, the second and third players folded, and the fourth player called for $50.

The pot ended up being $104 and a $3 rake was also generated:

  • $2.76 is a regular rake
  • $0.24 is fed to The Beast.

The number of points players’ll earn depends on how much rake they contribute:

  • First player – 5.25 points
  • Second player – 0.75 points
  • Third player – 0.75 points
  • Fourth player – 5.25 points
