PartyPoker - Rake Free TournamentsPublished on 2012-01-03 13:10:00
PartyPoker is one of the biggest names in online poker, and that success was no accident: PartyPoker brings its superb customer service, attention to detail, lucrative promotions and low fees to each and every virtual table.
Most of the fees are in the rake, a "necessary evil." The rake is the commission fee that the house takes off the top of the pot or tacks on to the tournament buy-in. The poker room uses this money to pay its bills and turn a profit.
But PartyPoker is a massive online poker room with an array of revenue streams. So PartyPoker can afford to shut one down from time to time, and that's exactly what it's doing for a limited time only: 100% rake-free tournaments.

The PartyPoker "Rake Free Tournaments" promotion starts on Sunday, January 1, 2012, and runs through Saturday, January 31, 2012. It costs the player nothing, and it applies across the entire multi-table tournament schedule.
In other words, across the entire multi-table tournament schedule, there are no fees, and 100 percent of the money you and every other player contributes goes directly into the prize pool. Play for a lot more cash at no extra cost!
Here's an example: A normal PartyPoker tournament with a $5 + $0.50 buy-in and 1,000 players would have a $5,000 prize pool. PartyPoker pays out 23.5 percent to first place, so the winner would walk away with $1,175!
During the rake-free period, that same tournament has a $5.50 + $0.00 buy-in — PartyPoker just shifts the fee. Now, the prize pool is $5,500, so first place takes home $1,292.50 rather than $1,175 with no additional expense.
PartyPoker runs amazing promotions throughout the year. But this is a special one, and you won't find anything like it at any other online poker room, so don't let it pass you by. Open an account, and try PartyPoker today!
