on the rake. they take a percentage of each pot say $1.00 for every $10 in the pot. a good dealer can deal 30-40 hands an hour. so if avg pot is $40 then the house makes about 120-160 an hour. not as profitable as other games but they are giving in to the demand for the game. the one table I hear they have on ships cannot be worth it to the cruise line but they are basically filling a desire for passengers, in my opinion.

Yes... on the GTS Infinity i can tell you they were taking a 10% rake off each of the pots... however it would usually take them about an hour to get enough players after the table was officially opened for the night... they did NOT open the table during the day(except for the tournament to let people know they had a table)... and they would not start a game until there were at least 5 people at the table...

I haven't see a ship with Texas holdem yet, but would like to.

We played hold'em on the Norwegian Jewel. They had only one table, on which they played regular "limit" hold'em in addition to two seatings of a "no limit" tournament each night. I think the buy-in for the no limit games was about US$60. I don't know if all the NCL ships have Texas hold'em yet, but I assume that they will in time.

On the last two HA ships the dealer took $1 to $3 per pot. He/she just looked at the size of the pot and estiamted the amount. Players all accepted this.Play did not start unless there were at least 8 players in the "tournament". You just play until you go broke and only one player remains.

The 'rake' is the standard method in all casinos for card games where the house does not have a player/hand. This holds true in Vegas, Reno and other gambling destinations.
