What is Internet Poker Propping?
Simply put, a prop is a player that's paid by the poker room to help start new tables and help shorthanded games stay alive. Prop players play with their own money and win and lose just like a normal player. They then get paid at the end of the week for the amount that they played. This payment is usually in the form of a high percentage of rake back, usually 100% or more.

Online poker rooms use prop players to help start new tables and build shorthanded games so that when customers log on the site to play, they have games to jump into. Most casual customers don't like playing heads up or shorthanded; so the poker room pays prop players to do so and get the games up and running for the customers.

Frequently Asked Questions about Internet Poker Propping

What is Rake?
The way that poker sites make money is by taking what is called rake. For each "$X" amount of money in each pot/hand, they take a % of that pot. For example: If there's $40 in a pot for a hand, they might take $2 out of that pot.

What is Rakeback?
Rakeback is simply paying you back the rake that you "paid" the poker site from each pot. Here's an example of 100% rake back for 1 hand/pot: Let's say that there are 6 players dealt into this hand. The pot builds up and the poker site takes $3 in rake for this hand. 100% rakeback would be defined in this particular hand as $3(rake) divided by 6(# of players) which would equal $0.50
