I've just started getting into PLO but have quickly realized the low-stakes games are next to unbeatable because of rake. Apparently paying 2buyins/1k hands in rake is not uncommon.
An example of a site with a huge rake at the smaller stakes is PokerStars. Here you can see the players that played the most hands in the last 12 months at the 0.50/1.00$ level, which is a rather soft level with a lot of people that don't really know what they're doing.
Only 3 of these 25 regular players are winners, they altogether paid almost $8 million in rake for the 63 million hands they played.
Does anyone play at a site that treats PLO differently?
