Re: Reasoning behind higher stake poker on Obsidian
 
 
 
Honestly 200k tables would be fine with a 5% rake and would do a ton of great things for the economy.


Such as?

They're saying that the rake would be a functional (and, at that scale, significant) money sink. On the other servers, the only money sinks that I'm aware of are sinking ships and items dusting, right?


Maybe, maybe not. I'm awaiting the original poster's clarification, because "would create a money sink" and "would do great things for the economy" don't mean quite the same thing. Unless you're indulging in nonspecific and meaningless hyperbole for the purpose of promoting something, which abuse of the language is sadly common on the 'net.

But discussing the rake is orthogonal to the real issue - which is preventing poker from becoming a drag on the larger game. Large pots are a step backwards in that respect.
