**How does the dealt method work?**

It is simple, everyone dealt into the hand receives an equal part of the rake. So if there are 10 people dealt hands, each is credited with 10% of the rake, no matter who wins the pot or how much money each player put into the pot.

**How does the average contribution method work?**

It means that everyone who puts money into the pot gets an equal share of the rake credited to them. It favorites loose players, but is not really fair, because a player who puts 1bb in the pot gets same rake credited as a player who puts in 250bb.

**How does the weighted contribution method work?**

Each player is credited rake in the same proportion in which he put money into the pot. For instance, if you put 45% of the money into the pot and the rake was 2$, you will be credited 90 cents.

**How does the essence method work?**

The Essence system was introduced to the Ongame network and greatly favorites recreational players. Its calculation depends on a players success in the last 90 days. This means that losing players get a lot more than winning players. The exact formula to calculate how much rake you get back is not known.
