Re: Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Tampa, FL) -- FAQ in OP, updated 2015.09.28

Can anyone clarify what the jackpot/rake take should officially be at HR Tampa for NL cash games for a raise/everyone folds PF scenario? Eg, say in 1/2 utg raised to $5 or $6, and everyone inc blinds fold. They appear to be dropping $1 rake for this scenario, and are considering the uncalled $5 or $6 bet as imcludes and part of the raked pot amount. Is this normal practice for casino poker? Would that be the norm in Vegas? Thanks for any feedback..

they do rake preflop but they're not raking an uncalled bet.. you just have to remember that part of your bet is the calling amount. for a more extreme example... say you're under the gun and you raise it to $100 and everyone folds. you are not raising $100... you are raising $98. the pot is $1 (small blind) + $2 (big blind) + 2 (portion of your bet that is calling the blind). so they rake $1 because the pot is now at $5.

The next $1 would be raked when the pot gets to $15.

this is common raking at any casino that rakes with no flop. a lot of casinos have a "no flop no drop" policy... but not this one.

as far as i know... all the rooms in vegas are "no flop no drop"

It really isn't common to rake $1 on a $5 pot. Most casinos I've played in do not round up but take 10%. $1 at $10, $2 at 20 etc..but this is the Hard Rock

yeah... i've seen both ways plenty. usually areas with less casino competition it's more likely to rake rounding up.

but i agree with you... certainly the hard rock isn't doing any favors. rake rounding up is the least of my concerns. by very general estimations... it seems there is way more being take out for jackpot drops than given back.

Little slick Apr 9th-14th coming up. $120+$20+$10. Is that a standard fee and staff toke? I can't recall earlier tourneys. I'm sure there is still good value and I'll probably fire at least a couple bullets, yet $120 + $30 is quite a fee structure.

Do people still tip when the staff is getting a 8.33% vig on the entire tourney's entry fees that go to the prize pool? And this is along with the house is getting a 16.67% take.

$20 fee on $120 is fairly standard, it's pretty much the minimum MTT fee you'll ever see, they don't go lower. Anything less and the tournament would be even more turbo. The $10 is high, since the standard is taking 3% of the pool. IMO there's no need to tip on top of that. But I don't want this discussion to go down the tipping rabbit hole, you can ask in the Tipping Discussion thread if you want feedback on that.

I heard a nasty rumor yesterday that they were increasing their BBJ drop to 2$ effective may 1. Currently at 2/5 if there is 1 limper and you raise and everyone folds many dealers will rake 2+1. Will they now be raking 2+2? One person told me that the 2nd $ will not be dropped till the pot reaches 20$.

wonder if it has anything to do with the rumor the BBJ is going back to a progressive jackpot.
