So I'm playing on an app site, PPPoker, and am receiving a very nice 60% rakeback deal with my agent. But I was wondering if anyone knows how our rake figures (on PPPoker or any site) are actually totaled up? If I play a raked pot and fold, does my rake figure go up? Or does the winner of the pot alone pay the rake in the end? Or is it divided amongst the players who entered the pot?
Please help :-)

Here's the link to the hand on the PPPoker app:
I justified calling because I had two queens in my hand and I considered it possible he was semi bluffing with blockers and/or nut FD or even a set + nut FD (or we were chopping). But I didn't consider his stats enough. He was a semi-nit and very unlikely to check raise without AQ.
Let me know what you think and if this was an easy lay down. I feel horrible giving this nit max value when he's OOP and I'm supposed to be a professional poker player. I could've lost very little by simply making the fold on the turn. I wasn't thinking straight in this hand and made a stubborn call. I thought back to past hands where I made horrible nitty lay downs and that negatively influenced this hand big time. Don't fall into that trap!

It's quite an annoying spot but I think stacking off is bad as you'd be dominated in equity almost every time. Your stack to pot ratio is still too high to stack off automatically.
There are a lot of hands in your opponent's range that could have you crushed including wraps with mid or top pair. I probably prefer the check/call line to realize your equity and try to get closer to showdown and also to utilize your nut blocker if hearts come. A check/call would check plenty of bluffs in your opponent's range and your showdown value is decent.
