Re: Detroit

I got a business trip coming up to Indianapolis, and plan on hitting Indiana Grand Casino. I've been told everything's electronic there, including dealer-less poker tables -- sort of like online poker, only live where the table is a giant screen, slower, and way softer competition. I think all they have is 1/2 NLHE. This is the first I've heard of such a thing, and would like to hear from local Detroit players who've experienced this.

How do you look at your hands secretly? Are people able to protect their hands well?

It is awkward or easy to figure out how to do everything?

Can you buy in anonymously like most other live places, or do you need a player card that personally identifies you?

Is the competition softer than say a $1/$2 game at MGM or MCC? Or is it full of online players playing live?

How do they take rake, and how much?

What are physical tells like -- are they any different? What else is different?

Could still grab a stack from the cage to finger while you're at the table.

Re: Detroit

I played on an electronic table while on a cruise ship. Didn't like how it played; but loved the action every night.

They had us buy in using our players card, you loaded the money onto the card at the cage. Since there is no dealer I would suspect the casino would operate it similar.

There is a small screen in front of you where the cards will appear, if you slide on the screen it will lift up the cards. Protect it just like you would a physical hand. Hard to see people's hands unless you really rubber neck it, due to the pixelation and the angles.

Re: Detroit

You cup your hands on your screen like regular cards and that's when they're shown to you. The missing chips is my biggest beef with the electronic format.

Electronic tables do take some getting used to. I was never worried about other players seeing my cards, but if you don't protect them it's possible to see from many angles ... even across the table. I used my 'players card' to tap and shield the game from my cards. It's interesting how you can 'show' one or both cards if you win a pot without a showdown.

No chips, but you do know your opponents exact chip stack at all times.

I've heard that they stop the game after any pot over $200 so the winner can sign a winnings form ... Have no confirmation this is still a practice.

Search this sight for the Indianapolis Thread ... THERE IS 2/5 charity cash action along the north portion of 465. Unlimited chips from what I understand. I didn't get to play in any of the games when I was there for New Years since they were closed.

Hope you run good and give us a report of whatever you decide to do. GL
