That being said, those old ante 5 players (now the 5-10 degenerates) would welcome PLO once they get the hang of it.

1-2 PLO (100-500 buy in)
2-5 PLO (200-1000 buy in)

to start, of course. Once people fall in love (which they will) 5-10 will follow after.


Hopefully you will have cash-boxes available for players. Also perhaps have a reward system for the regs. Maybe a free meal at the paddock or something after x number of visits.

Great job with this thread. I'll be coming shortly for my free beer.
Oh man the PBKC does in fact have one of the largest group of reg degens I'ver ever encountered in a poker room on a daily basis. And even more lol was the fact that they loved that ante 5 game(which still runs their ocassionally at table 1.) Also that game may be the worst theoretic game in the history of poker. This of course makes no difference for the mentally challenged degenerates that only are sitting at the table long enough to post their blinds and misssed blinds every other 3rd round. (Yes the rest of the time they are standing in line to bet on the dogs.) Just hoping the stake increases allow them big enough betting rushes to get satisfaction out of the pain now caused by poker losses at least as much as their dog betting losses. /End rant.

Guess you have to be there to understand what the **** I'm talking about.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

Here I go

I am a semi regular at the PBKC. I started going there when the 2 dollar max betting limit started and no-limit did not exist. The room has been through many changes and remodels and staff.
New games to spread.

You already have the holdem limits understood. Let me speak for limit games, please add a 5 / 10 Limit game, the chips are so much easier to deal with, but no place really runs a 5 10 limit game. Oh well.
Now let’s get to some exciting games. I know you will hate this one, but think of offering it. 1 / 2 pot limit 5 card draw. This is a great game, people do play it, (especially in my home game) and this could be a unique game to offer to set the PBKC apart from other poker rooms, let’s face it, everyone knows how to play 5 card draw, it is played online on pokerstars and in almost every home game in America, it has less players at the table 6 max. but you still get to rake it.

Limit 7 card stud, (and maybe hi-low). Many older players love this game, and PB has lots of older players, and let’s face it, when the limits go up you will see lots of new faces, and they will be older looking faces (try it without and ante). My dad and his friends enjoy a home game that is mostly 40/80 stud. When the limits go up, you will see bigger limit games, so put a ‘showing interest” up on your sign-in board for this.

This leads to offer of showing interest in RAZZ, again many older players enjoy this game and many poker rooms in CA have one or two tables going.

Limit Omaha and Limit Omaha 8, many limit ranges from 2/4 through 8 / 16, but player interest will drive the limits
Oh did I say, get rid of the 5 dollar rake. I know this will never happen that is why a lot of people play online, the rake is so high. 5 in rake plus the Bad beat jackpot and then a dealer tip, that is 7 dollars leaving the table every hand, even more if the dealer tip is higher.

You had the rake at 3 dollars before, then it jumped to 5 then back down to 4 and now 5 plus the 1 dollar bad beat jackpot, time to think about the long haul.

Get rid of the jackpot, now with the new limits, you may not need that advertisement to get players in the door. Those who don’t care about, which is many, would prefer to keep that money on the table and in play, thus creating more money for the players and more rake for the PBKC (Roonys) think long term here.

PLO is a must 1 / 2 dollar (2/5 or higher if you have interest). Train those dealers. Some of them are very good and were able to transition from 1 /2 limit to no limit very well. I thought the math and counting the bets and side pots would get to them, but most have done a good job. Make sure it is PLO and not PLO 8OB, offer both. I heard someone say at the PBKC that when they played Omaha high, that when the flop came out, most players fold, well that is not the case in PLO it is the most action game and has paid for my last car.
I do not know if it is a state law, but when you start having 3/6, 4/8 and 8/16 limit games, the players may need to have racks on the table, to accommodate and handle all the chips. All over the world, other card rooms allow you to put rakes on the table, just a thought.
Food, when we will be able to get food from the Paddock in the poker room? That would be great, then we would need some real plates to eat from. You will need that for the higher limit players as well.

Get some bottled beer. I know you have Heineken and Corona in the bottle. It is time for domestic beers. I don’t drink much beer their because the beer I like is offered in a plastic bottle, c’mon already, I was told once that you have can and plastic bottles for safety reason, so people would not throw them or whatever, I suspect that was a story from the dealer, but either way, you have glass bottle beer in other brands, lets step up and get them for all the brands.

Let talk about mixed drinks. I rarely order those as well, unless I am drinking it straight, why? You have Pepsi products, whoever orders jack and coke or rum and coke and expects to get Pepsi, I know you are in partners with them and use them throughout the facility, but I have lots of drinking poker friends who go to the PBKC and don’t drink for these very reasons. In my home games, we drink to like fish. ( I know I will get a comment from someone about being a fish, I love the internet) At least get coke in the poker room. Think big, that place will change like never before seen when the new limits kick-in.

Oh ya, bottle water for free too would be nice, I think the Isle or Rock are offering that already.

High limits area. First of all I do not like to play in the area on the first floor in the north end of the card room, the space has no “people energy”, It is quiet, too far from the cage, no action, the wait staff does go over too much to see if you need anything and does not have many TV displays. Here are some thoughts, how about taking out the 3 card poker high tops and putting two high limit tables in that space. You can put up a short barrier wall that will match and connect to the columns that already exist and make it fours walls with one entrance all the way around the two tables. I say this for a couple of reasons. High limit games attract people. People are good for business, when people see high limit player and games going, they tend to play themselves. This way, people in the poker room and outside ( the outer hallway near the track) can see a little bit of the big games and get the energy going. I know you will think that people want privacy, but let’s be honest, many of the high limit players want to be seen as well. If you put a small enclosure around the area with some etched glass on top of it, people can still see a little of what is going on, but not see all the table action. This way the high limit players are treated like kings, being seen by everyone, they will be close to the bar and to the cage in that location.
Or you can keep them towards the south east corner of the first floor poker room by all the monitors, give them a couple of tables around where table 30 or 31 is located, I think those are the numbers, and move a few tables away from them. This way they will be closer to the cage, further away from the glass hallway and have some privacy, whatever you do, do not stick them where they cannot be seen entirely. If the players want the secluded table in the middle of nowhere, then you can just have them play in the north side of the room all the way to the east wall. But if you hide them entirely you are losing your advertising. Look at Bobbies room and the Ivey’s room, the high limit area is raised and have glass around them so they can be seen. (no fish tank in the poker room, a real pain in the butt to own and very expensive to maintain, and no-one wants to hear any pumps that might make noise)

Tourneys, lower your rake. I think the last SNG that I remember talking about was 60 to play and 15 of that was going towards rake, wow that is a lot, a high percentage for the house. Maybe charge a lower fee/percentage … something, maybe you lowered juice already, I hope so.

You want to make a name for the PBKC, well here is one way. 18 to play right? Have a 10,000 buy in No-limit holdem tourney, just after the WSOP. Bring in Matt Savage or some other pro TD to get it organized. When the new limits take place all these young guns who are under 21 will come from everywhere to play in a live tourney. Pokerstars had like what 1200 players in the Bahamas, I know they ran all the satellites, but once you advertise in Vegas July 1st for this tourney, you should be able to get a ton of players. Think of all the Online guys who cannot play live poker because of their age. If you had this organized, you will have great marketing for the PBKC. Have the tourney near the end of July or beginning August when the WSOP is over. Tons of players have to go overseas including Australia to play because of the 21 year old age restriction in the most states. This would be huge publicity and would take the poker world by storm. I know you have like 60 tables total, but depending on the number of players you can have multiple starting days, thus leaving tables for cash games, or add tables in the hallway outside the poker room, or in the paddock. Whichever, this prospect would put the PBKC on the map in poker.

Time for New chairs, a few new felts, I know it is Florida, but when the limits go up, people will not like to see the staff in Hawaiian shirts and flip flops like it was mentioned in a previous post, you do not see that in Bobby’s room, keep up the dress code. Think big time, because it is coming.

Get rid of the button blind in the 1 /2 NL game, players do not like it, they don’t, you will rake the game anyway, no use in killing the sheep when you can sheer him many times. In CA when they have a button blind it is 25% of the BB not the entire BB. Think big time class, not cheapos that rake, you are in this for the long haul too along with the players.

I find more players would rather pay by rake than time. It is easier for the player to get up and leave, move to another table and take a break, maybe it is just me.
You can charge more rake on the High limit games to make up for some of these cuts. I never understood why a 1 /2 limit game had a 3 dollar rake and a 20/40 limit game had a 3 dollar rake. If they have more in play you should be able to take more, call it “an ambiance charge”.

I will stop by and see you, I may not want to get that free beer in a plastic bottle, maybe I will sneak in a Coke and get a mixed drink from you.

Pokernoahc you better watch out, someone is after your job.

I would take a bet if you gave me odds that you know who this post is from, he has to be a regular that is not afraid to voice his opinion.

I like coca-cola products better too

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

Sorry for the delay. I had this in a nice excell spreadsheet, just couldnt find a way to attach a file.

I am not a proud man, but be gentle with the lashings you all are going to dish out.

I think we found a good balance that will make most players happy. Most notably is the 2 versions of the 5-10 game.


Limit Hold'em

2-2
2-4
4-8
10-20
20-40
30-60 No Jackpot

NL Hold'em

MIN MAX
1-2 $60 $200
2-5 $200 $500
5-10 $100 $300
5-10 $500 $2000 No Jackpot
10-20 $1000 None No Jackpot Timed Rake
25-50 $2500 None No Jackpot Timed Rake

Stud

1-3 Spread
4-8
10-20
5-25 Spread

PLO

2-5 $200 No Max No Jackpot

Take care.

Maybe up the minimum buy in for 1-2 NL? For the rest of the games you have the minimum buy in at 50 big blinds.

That should be time. They might rake the 5-10 100-300 game though.

That short buy 5-10 game would be a nice feeder game for the 500-2k game.

Noah, what is the time frame for the new card room? It will be stand alone without racing, correct?

Thanks for all the updates!

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

Noah, I was playing at your card room tonight and noticed a situation that I think should be addressed. I normally play tournaments so I don't know if this is a common problem at your/any room.

There were 6-7 friends in the room who would constantly rathole 1/2. There would be about 3 of them playing (buying in for 60-100) then they would leave the table as soon as they got over $250-300. Immediately after standing up from the table, the player would give $60-100 to a friend and the friend would sit down in the same seat the player just left. The player who was originally at the table went to another 1/2 table and I assume he only bought in for $60-100 (he definitely didn't buy-in for the amount he left the table with since he gave his friend $60 to sit in his old seat).

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

as long as they go to different table then nothing you can do. If he tries to come back to same table, usually the rule is 1 hour same buy in as you left.
Some rooms have a rule about changing tables and ratholing. Never seen a florida room have that rule tho.

I think there is something that could/should be done. If they ask for a table transfer to a table at the same limit they would have to bring their current stack, correct? They are getting around this by constantly changing tables by themselves. I'm not sure what could exactly be done at times when there is no waiting list. I haven't really thought about a solution to fix it, but it seems like a floor should stop them from doing it when it was as blatant as it was.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

When will they raise the buy in limit from 100 dollars due to the new legislation? How many tables are there in the poker room? I plan on dropping in next time I visit Palm Beach right next to the airport correct? Not really that enthused as must be just a shove fest but have to try it out just for the experience.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

Stopped by Weds afternoon, met Noah, put a face to the name, I for some crazy reason thought he was the guy on the web site holding all the chips not him by the way. He seems very excited about the new changes and remodeling the room, glad to see a room putting money back into the room, not just take take take like the Hard Rock, that big screen at the Hard Rock has been broke for over 6 months there and they refuse to fix it. Anyway room was 75% full at 4pm, as I was leaving about 7 people were coming in steady. The players were talking about the new limits, some that never played deep were kind of nervous, they have been hearing all the stories how the Florida players are going to get crushed because all the pros are coming, which is a lie, the pros that come here will not be that many for one and not many will be playing the 1/2 - 2/5 game.

I was sitting at the table and the guy across from me sounded familiar, it was a bartender from Stuart I know close to 20 years ago, haven't seen him for at least 16 years so it was good to see someone from so long ago.

I did see a sign for a tournament for a $50,000 guarantee, I asked the brush who the guy is it was for, it was for a regular player at the PBKC that passed away "Turk" I think I may go by and play in a satellite next week, they were only $30 to get into the $550 buy in at the end of the month.

Anyway had a good time and everyone was friendly.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

I need to see the blind structure for the $550. You guys picked a very poor day to have a tournament of this size, as it's the same day at the Hard Rock's $1100 Big Slick. If the blind structure is significantly better (or even close I guess), then I'll probably rather play in West Palm. I am pretty sure the West Palm tourney is 15k starting chips with 40 minute blinds compared to 10k starting with 50 minute blinds at Hard Rock. The blind structure at the hard rock is something like
25/50
50/100
75/150
100/200
100/200/25
150/300/25
200/400/50
300/600/75
400/800/100

What does West Palm offer in this particular one?

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

Lord Strife, thanks for your input with respect to the structure of the $50,000 guaranteed "Big Dog" being held at the Palm Beach Kennel Club on June 26th

You are correct in saying that we will begin play with 15,000 units and the blind levels will be 40 minutes. The structure is designed to give significant play to all players entering this event.
25-50
50-100
75-150
100-200
150-300
200-400
300-600
400-800
antes do not begin until the 500-1000 level and as you can see, we are utilizing the 1/2 step formula for the most part which significantly helps players to play the game rather than gamble. I think you will find the "Big Dog" structure does not rush play and I'm confident you will feel the same. Players who have played in this event in the past have expressed their appreciation for the structure and have referred to it as a true poker players event.
I hope to see you on Saturday June 26th at the PBKC.
Thanks again.
All the best, Joe Conti

I refuse to play any more tourneys at the kennel club the dealers we're SO slow and I took 4th out of a 50+ players and bubbled it really is a joke there, inlcuding the button blind thing. If you guys want to keep up with the Isle you really need to take care of your players better, and make your tourneys at least playable in the mid-late stages.

50+ players only payed 3 spots? I would never play that. Absolute min. of 10% in the money paid.

This does not appear to be factual. We typically pay 10% of the field.
It sounds as though this was a satellite for the WSOP. Of course we cannot pay 10% of the field if we are trying to make $11,000 packages. I am sure this was the case, correct? If so, please do clarify. If not, I can look into the issue.

If you would like to stop by to discuss your displeasure, I would be more than happy to hear your input.

Take care.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

FlGrinder, Having 14 tournaments a week is always a challenge at any venue. Some tournaments of course are designed to play differently than others. Some of the weekly events are designed to play in 5-7 hrs and others for considerably longer. Having all tournaments play 10-12 hrs would be prohibitive for many of the weekly players to attend regularly due to their personal commitments, be it family or business etc.. Having said that, I would welcome any constructive suggestions you may have that you feel would enhance the tournament experience at the PBKC as it is the desire to give players a fair, challenging, fun and competitive experience. As for the payout structure the PBKC always pays 10% of the field, in fact if there are 71 players for example the top 8 players would receive payouts.

I hope to hear back from you and others with realistic, constructive tournament suggestions and you have my word they will all be seriously considered.

All the best.
