Everest Poker applies a 'no flop, no drop' policy which is common across a number of online poker rooms, meaning if the hand is settled before the flop is dealt no rake is taken. For the most part the rake is set at 5% and is capped depending on game type, limit level and number of players involved. For No Limit and Pot Limit tables, the rake is capped at $3 up to $10/$20 and moves to a cap of $5 for levels $25/$50 and above.
