Perilous Play
 
Some casinos take a larger percentage than others and some have no cap on how much comes out of any one pot. Ask before you sit down. If the rake is too high, you may want to shop around for a better deal. If the cardroom is "the only game in town," you have to decide whether the games are worth it. Not surprisingly, high rakes tend to be found in low- or no-competition areas. Internet poker may help change that.
