2) The Floor should've limited his 'conversation' to the action question ... and then explained to the dealer how to carry on from there.

3) A Floor should never allow a player to 'make a decision' that is basically the basis for a ruling. GL
I was in a charity room where I met a young woman who was about to deal for the first time. She wound up being my first dealer that night.

She asked if I had any advice and I told her to be very careful about letting the players "help" her. She had to be in charge.

She did quite well, much better than I expected from a rookie.

Anyway, thinking of coming out of retirement for a few sessions in the summer. A few questions, how is new room at MGM? Haven had a chance to play it yet, is it better than MCC? Also, is MCC bad beat still going on?

Has anyone ever played the firekeepers 5th Sunday $400 tournament? Anyone have thoughts on about how many entries they normally get for that?
Twoblack9s out of retirement... wut?!? Hope you're well, man. MGM is nice. Like people said, not great but a lot more action. Played 2/5 there this weekend. Was fun.

Damn I miss limit Hold em above 3/6 by the way, but think I'm the only one. Well unless I drive all the way to Hammond. No thanks.
You're definitely not the only one. Was in Vegas for a week this month and played some 20/40 and 40/80 at Bellagio and completely forgot how much I love playing limit holdem.

The only decent limit game around here is the 15/30 game at Motorcity a couple times a week and that's so hard to get into because they open the game every Tuesday with the same 10 guys and it's often hours later before someone leaves. It's not even a great game for limit poker, but it's something if you want to play limit. If there was even a consistent 10/20 limit games, I'd probably play that over 1/2 NL any day. You just can't get enough players for it because everyone fell in love with NL during the poker boom.

For sure would play 10/20 Limit over a 1/2 NL game. It seems like it held on for a few years after 2003 but by i about 2008 was just completely dead. How was the 40/80 game at bellagio? I would love to play that but feel like it is in ass kicking in the making for me. Who really plays limit hold em anymore unless you are reg like you mentioned. I always felt the same about 30/60 7 card stud games at Belllagio. I want to sit down in a sick way way just to be completely outclassed.

It was a good game. It helped that it was the same week as the $1500 Limit Hold Em WSOP event and it seemed like there were plenty of out of town people playing Limit (not the daily Limit grinders that you'd find at Bellagio in September or something). They had multiple tables of 20/40, 40/80, and 80/160 every day. I was definitely an outsider because I play way less limit hold em now, but it was still a good game.
