Strike::Sapphire - Poker Stakes and Rakes

Tournaments.
Sapphire retains a flat 5% fee on the buyin in all tournaments, except where otherwise advertised. Lower-rake tournaments are regularly scheduled, as well as free-rolls and guaranteed tournaments for which there are no entry fees.

Ring games.
At Sapphire's ring game poker tables, the rake is removed from the pot at the end of each hand, immediately before the chips are pushed to the winner. Rakes vary based on the game stakes and the number of players in the hand. In Texas Hold'em and Omaha, Sapphire takes no rake on hands which don't reach the flop.
