Man this is frustrating. I don't understand how the forum swallowed most of my post. It was about 3x longer, well formatted, and included suggestions, etc.
Also included was what an explanation of what appeared to be a MAJOR bug in which the rake was not even based on the correct pot size! I'm too frustrated to retype in entirety, but here's Cliff's:
* I'm 200 BB deep, Villain is 50 BB deep. I CRAI on turn for my 200, villain called. Rake appeared to calculated on a 250 BB pot (!!) when the pot was 100 BB (both of which, obv., should be above the cap.)
Winning ~3 BI over 75-150 hands and walking away with a ~25 BB profit is equivalent to a 92% rake. A particularly harsh way to punish those players willing to play HU to start games, and a definite way to dry up your NL pool VERY quickly. I wish I'd been paying more attention.
Site op, feel free to PM me with requests for elucidations/suggestions, etc...
