Cherokee now has the highest rake in the United States. $8 per hand.
$7 was already extremely high for no Jackpot, but to go to $8 is over the top.
Then when you include $1 dealer tip, that's an excessive amount of money being removed from the table per hour.
Anyone playing poker here regularly, is getting fleeced. Hopefully people will quit traveling to play here because the local population cannot support the poker room. It's going to take economic loss for them to realize $8/ hand is the point players are not willing to tolerate.
I always traveled to Cherokee for 5-7 days twice a year for the WSOPC events, but I just canceled my reservations for the first week of December.
I'll go to Tunica, New Orleans, Biloxi, and Florida. I won't step foot in Cherokee again with the highest rake in the United States.
