Re: MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino (Oxon Hill, MD); FAQ in OP

I don't think a regular 8/16 game cannibalizing the 1/3 would necessarily be a bad thing. Even if 8 of the 10 players there would otherwise be playing 1/3 you'd have 1 or 2 who come specifically for the LHE game.

There are some days that 4/8 plays just as big as 1/3 depending on the players of course. There are some days at 4/8 where there are 6 players betting the river and the pots get well over $100. And there are also the days when half the table is 80 years old and falling asleep, and fold as soon as you make it $8 to go pre flop.

What's this about a $2,700 event coming?
What, when, etc...

(Please don't flame if I missed it in a previous post- I've been through the last few weeks and didn't see anything).

Thanks!

Not to derail the LHE train lol - and I'm admittedly PLO biased - but its really frustrating on a Friday night that with long and growing lists for 1/2 PLO we can only get one table allotted. Meanwhile there is no 4/8 list and 3 tables going.

JG, we used to at least get 2 if not 3 tables allotted for PLO. Not sure if a concerted effort was made to give more tables to the LHE games during the giveaways or not.

Just frustrating. Hoping that with more tables in any potential new room this is no longer an issue.

It wasn't really a conscious decision so much as realizing that those lists contain all the players that are playing in the 1/2 5 card, 1/2 PLO, 1/2 Big O. There are probably only 2 or 3 players that Are not in a game.

Re: MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino (Oxon Hill, MD); FAQ in OP

I guess my follow up question would be that if there are only 2 or 3 players on a 25 person 1/2 PLO list are not in games, why does it take so long to call/roll names for the 1/2 list when there are empty seats? In that case shouldnt it actually take less time if you know the players are already in games - and not take 15-20 minutes to even start calling the list? Oh ok we know these first two guys are in 5 card and they dont want the seat, take those guys off, these guys are in the 5/5 game take them off...

And dont get me wrong, I've come to realize PLO is the red headed step child in the room. But it sucks to get there early afternoon on a Friday and realize theres no chance of playing in a reasonable amount of time based on the list length and the one table going.

That's a hell of a question. I am in the room all night tonight, so I will observe and ask the guys why this continues to be a problem.

Sorry, I dont mean to be blunt. Just that anyone thats played 1/2 PLO knows this is an issue and it seems like it would be even less of one if that large a % of guys are truly already in games.

Maybe a slight misunderstanding. Right now we have the following games:

(1) 5/5 PLO
(1) 1/2 PLO
(2) 1/2 5 card games.

That's 36 players seated in those games.

We also have lists of the following:
1/2 PLO 18 players
1/2 5 Card Omaha 14 players
1/2 Big O 17 players

most of these players are the same 15/20 players that come in and get on the list of all Non-Hold'em games. Of the 19 on the 1/2 PLO list about 6 may be live bodies. The rest are all in games they prefer over 1/2 PLO. If we had 5 open table right now, we could possibly pick up one more game, which would likely only operate for a limited time.

the most you can lose in a single hand of 4/8 is $96. the minimum buyin at 1/3 is $100. Also min buyin at 4/8 is $40 in a casino that puts $25 min on a single roll of roulette on the floor. 4/8 plays comically lower than anything else mgm offers.
