Re: Reasoning behind higher stake poker on Obsidian
The rake is one of the only continuous and significant poe sinks, look at some of the old dead oceans and you will see inflation run rampant.

Honestly 200k tables would be fine with a 5% rake and would do a ton of great things for the economy. A 5% rake (on bets for some strange reason also) is extremely harsh and makes playing poker as a sole source of income a losing prospect long term.

You keep speaking like have money move around is a bad thing when actually it gets people buying dubs (lowering dub price) takes poe out of the economy (lowering dub price) and helps fund larger scale activities and events.

Unsanctioned or private poker games can/will go on for high stakes, perhaps at a 200 table with each poe representing 1k in a house with a chest for deposits. People could use a 3rd party program after depositing with someone running it. People could go to the casino and play poker with money they woulda bought in for dubs. At least having the option for 200k poker in game with rake would prevent some of that from happening.
