Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

Story told to me and verified by someone else

High hand promo is $400/$400/$800. This period is one of the $400s

Hero (not me) is a 2/5 player but is playing 1/2 today. He has A7. Flop comes AA2. Its checked around. Turn A.

Hero isnt sure of the high hand requirements and asks the dealer whats the minimum amount required in the pot to be eligible for the high hand. Dealer replies "$10." There is $12 in the pot. It checks to Hero who shoves all in. Everyone folds and Hero tables the high hand.

Someone at the table but not even in the hand complains that Hero shouldnt have asked the dealer that question and the floor is called. The floor rules that Hero is disqualified from winning the high hand because he intimidated the other players by asking that question and it couldve been an angle trying to prevent them from betting. WTF? He had the Ace. He demanded to talk to the poker room manager who backed up the floor ruling.

This place is run by idiots.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

Hello Floridians,

I'm considering making a trip for the WSOPc next month and was hoping someone might have hotel suggestions? Preferably walking distance but if not is Uber or Lyft active in Palm Beach?

Also, anything else you think I should know or consider?

Also Also, anything non-poker related I should experience while there?

Thanks

The story is at least partially false. There is no minimum for the High Hands at PBKC. They have started to crack down on the verbal shenanigans for the High Hands. Some dealers follow the rules but a lot don't. If a player complains to the floor and it's confirmed that anything was said to influence folds to win the High Hand they will disqualify you.

The room is poorly run. No disagreement there.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

Youre saying there is no minimum pot size required for HH at PBKC?

Lyft and Uber are very active. It's Florida. Nobody walks anywhere. PBKC is located across the street from the airport. There are a number of hotels in the area and generally there is a list with rates on the PBKC website.

That is correct. No minimum. There is $10 minimum for the BBJ. It's been that way for as long as I have played there.

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

It is no secrect that the PBKC is not even close to what it once was, when the WSOPC came to town. Sad to watch this great event be destroyed by the money grabbing, poor service, self-absorbed staff and management of the PBKC.

It's time to move on to the WPT. No more value here, IMO.
