Game Rakes 

KKPoker game rake is between 2% - 5% in the majority of our games, and different caps will apply. 

*Since 16 May 2024, splitting the pot will incur rake. Instant Rakeback System applied! 

Cash Games (Ring Games)

Cash Games, also known as Ring Games, are often where most players start their poker journey. Depending on the game's stakes, a minimum buy-in requirement to join is typically required.

In cash games, players join the action with set minimum and maximum buy-in amounts based on the stakes. Players have the freedom to leave the game whenever they choose. If players lose all the chips they bring to the table, they can buy back in and resume playing.

KKPoker offers various Cash Game formats with different stakes (blinds levels), and the rake percentage and cap may vary accordingly. We use a dynamic PVI system to ensure fair gaming, leading to player rake variations based on different factors. For a detailed explanation, click here.

Of course, different games might require different poker techniques. Want to learn some cash game strategies? Look no further HERE!

Multi-table Tournaments (MTTs)

Multi-table Tournaments (MTTs) are incredibly thrilling in poker. They attract players of all skill levels to vie for prize pool shares and glory! Unlike single-table tournaments or SNGs, MTTs involve players competing across multiple tables.

MTTs at KKPoker have many changing dynamics, all of which must be considered when building up your all-important chip stack to win big prizes! Here are some tips that might help you in MTTs.
