Depends on the reduced rake structure. If you reduce rake at 6 that probably isn't true.

If the casino was going to run 6 max games, they would not give a reduced rake for that game I can assure you.

Very true. At my place they wouldn't play 6-max without a reduced rake so it wouldn't happen.

If a game goes down to 6 and the dealer over-rakes you should see the players gripe.

If a game goes down to 6 it's not a 6 max. It's a 9 or 10 max.

I mainly play a time rake game so my comment was saying I'd gladly pay the difference in rake to play 6max.

Re: Live Casino Poker 2017 Low-Content/Chat Thread

The problem tends to be that even if you have live players who want to play 6 handed. Someone gets up and walks, or someone leaves and their isn't a list to fill the seat no you are five handed .... and if someone else walks or busts out you are 4 handed and it is even harder to get live players to play that short. The online players are used to seats being filled immediately and its just so much harder to do that in a live game

Fidget Spinners?

How long before we start seeing these fidget spinners at the poker tables?

Would you have a problem if your neighbor(s) is spinning his while at the table?

I feel like poker players shuffle chips instead?

I can see people who are new to the game (younger), or don't know how to do any chip tricks could bring them in.

They could double as a card protector too.

This is what I've been waiting to see.

My kid has an ass load of these things. He's making a killing at school buying them for $3 on eBay and selling them to his classmates for $8. He sold the first couple for $3 and told me about it when he asked to get more. I explained mark up to him and I may have created a monster.

Saw one at the table for the nightly tournament at Talking Stick maybe 2 months ago. Didn't know what it was at the time, but have since seen stories like above in local media, usually highlighting the ADD/ADHD therapeutic "value". Gentleman was mid- to late-twenties, couldn't put it down. Luckily (!!) I was out early (as usual) so it never got too annoying.

I am good with anything that a player does physically without conscious or deliberate thought. All the more opportunities for tells
