Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

When the new games start, are you getting rid of the $2 button post? Still $2 min. Rake?
been awhile since I was there. I think thats what it was on 1/2nl when I was there.

We have the $100's in. Waiting on the $1,000's.

I know. The question is, why $1,000's? It's due to the state not allowing cash to play. If a huge game breaks out we have to be prepared.

Take care.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

News: The state has listed the approved card games. This can be amended at any time if a room presents a game that falls within the regulations.

We will be posting our full list of games and limits one week from today!!

Stay tuned.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Thread

Why can't I win there? IS it Rigged? Kidding.

Anyways I would like to state that I am a big fan of the Kennel Club, and spent alot of time there before moving to Miami-Dade county last yr from Jupiter. You had some very strong dealers, but at least 3-5 that were worse than anywhere I've ever played and I've played in alot of live venues, both home and public.

My question is do you ever get rid of dealers that don't break rules, but just for being bad at dealing in general? I mean it's cold, but this is a big business and these types of dealers can easily drive guests to another gambling location even after as little as one awful 30 min stretch of listening to the dealer talk and simultaneously deal 5 hands in this time period.

+1000000 on North County. I'll justify that suggestion by referring to decreased competition, but in reality it's mostly for my own selfish reasons.

Questions for Noah:
(1) Do you know what the timed rake would be per hour at a 5/10 game (or higher)?
(2) Why don't you guys ever consider spreading a 5/10 $5 ante game (both before and after the law change)? I asked about it a couple of weeks back and was told it had been tried but there was no support for it. I CAN'T IMAGINE on a day with 6 5/10 games running that there wouldn't be a table's worth of interest for $5 ante. Very juicy games down at the Isle and HR makes me make the MUCH LONGER drive sometimes down there than the KC.
(3) Overall, can you work with the other floors/managers to become a little more friendly to player requests? Around a month back there was a juicy 5/10 game going in the back which the players requested to convert to a 5/10/20 game and were flat out told no.

As I posted in the other thread, I've been impressed so far by the changes the PBKC is considering for the upcoming law change. Also very impressed by the amount of player input you guys have been seeking as of late. Very refreshing change of pace. Thanks Noah!

The way the supervisors are supposed to think is the following: It is the players game. We just provide the game for them. If they want to do something that doesn't break the law or compromise the integrity of the game then we should be accomidating.

They did not make that adjustment because they had believed it was a law. I allowed that game yesterday because I understand it is legal. The game will be allowed from here on in.

We should probably do a $5-$10 ante game. However, it is a little peculiar, and I hate to discredit Florida poker by making a game that doesn't play even close to correct. If we didn't have the changes coming up, I would make a move immediately. But, i belive the changes we are gonna have July 1st will help to relieve some of the gamble players have.

We will have 2 versions of $5-$10. The bigger game will be timed. I don't have the numbers here in front of me at home, but I will look at it tommorrow when I get to the office.

Thanks for the input. It makes me better at my job.

Take care.

Thanks for the quick response Noah. Glad to hear you guys allowed the 5/10/20 game a bit later on, just sad I missed that one.

Miami Jai Alai is in a big remodel right now, Calder isn't far from you, right off the turnpike.

Take care.

PLO is an action game. I've played at PBKC for several years (back when the poker room entrance doors were on the side facing the track!) and know that a lot of people love to gamble it up there. They will enjoy the action PLO gives them. Provided, of course, that they know the rules. That includes also having the dealers adjust to the pot-limit vs no-limit betting differences.

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.

The biggest problem I see with PLO is the players are not use to the swings and bankroll management, Even with 200BB PLO the stacks are not that deep for this game.

I play .50/1 online and I have had over 700 in a pot before of my money, (did get sucked out on the river to quads)

Just figure it out, say a 2/5 game, 2 limpers and the blinds next guy go pot, that is $30, the button goes pot, that is $110, call $260 in pot, turn guy opens for $130 next goes pot, that is $590, call, now the pot is $1440 next move is all in, that is just 2 players and 2 limps and the blinds. This game plays so big it is crazy. This is going to be a shove fest and a hit and run game IMO, you are never far behind pre-flop so they will come in short hoping to triple up and leave. Do not think this is rare, it happens alot.

PLO has to be the number 1 cause of insanity in poker, the swings and suck outs can drive anyone crazy
