It is a wrong question or topic to discuss whether or not players have a “right” to a rake standard. This is not at all important and completely dismissive of obvious logic. In the quest for Ideal Poker, nobody is asserting a “right” for decreased rake, but rather the players are waking up to the force of their collective will.
Laughing in the face of this is not intelligent but simply a symptom of a player with poor game theory skills or knowledge.
What is more important to point out is that is in FACT within the players collective rights to pool together and adopt a cooperative strategy against the status quo.
We call this “The players right to play cooperative poker”, and it is part of the unenumerated rights our Poker Player’s Constitution.
