Re: Playground Poker Thread

Yeah, that's what I do with top ups too. I keep some quarters in my pocket and when I need to, I announce I'm adding on chips and pull out the green birds.

Re: Playground Poker Thread

really? I've been doing this at playground since I got there... I never mention when I add chips tho.

I do make sure I stay at 100bb or less also so if a player sees me do it he cant really complain...

maybe the dealer thought you meant rebuy for under 20bb? I can see you asking the dealer 20$ in chips every few hands slowing down the game, but pulling a quarter out of your pocket how does that effect the game?...

something doesnt add up.

Re: Playground Poker Thread

About my add on habits. I do it at the casino. I haven't had the chance to play cash at Playground yet and I haven't learned about their add on rules.

I bought in for 200, then lost 35 and added on for that. About half hour later I lost another 20 and tried to add on that, he said he can't do that because I'm only allowed one rebuy under 40. I then asked if I could go buy chips at the cage, and he said yes I could, but I can't add them to my stack.

I would have to say that the dealer in question was misquoting/misinterpreting the rule, and if he or any other dealer does so again you should flag down a floor manager for clarification.

The "under 20bb" rule is that you are allowed one short buy for 10bb IF YOU BUST out - it has nothing to do with top-ups.

As has been said here already though, your best bet is to keep some extra chips on you so that you don't slow the game down while topping up.

Re: Playground Poker Thread

Far as I know, BBJ is still growing at over 40k. $500 Deep Stack coming up on Feb 19th, for any tourney players interested. 25k chips, 30 minute levels. They just had their first $200 Deep Stack, sold out over a week in advance, was set for two hundred players and ended up at 232 with alternates. $12k went to winner.

Heading there on 6th to check it out.

Re: Playground Poker Thread

Hey I'm heading down to Montreal in a few weeks so I'll definitely check this out. What are the wait times like for 1/2 on Friday nights/weekends? Also when you are on the wait list, is there anything to do there to kill time? thanks.

I was there yesterday (Friday) at 8pm...there were 4 tables of 1-2 going and not 10 mins after I got on the list, a 5th table opened...I've been there 4 or 5 times now and the only long wait I had was 30 mins on a Monday night with 1 table going, I was 4th on the list...Still by 7:30 the place was packed and another table opened.

If you smoke, there's a smoking lounge you can go kill time in while waiting. You could also of course sit at the bar, but you have to pay when you're not playing. There are like 30+ plasmas with various sports playing, so that's prolly your best bet for killing time.

They are pretty liberal in opening tables. If there is a wait list of 8+ they usually just open a new table

Last I went there was 3 5/5 tables I think 1 was PLO. Hopefully you get an answer from a regular there.
