This statement could not be any more incorrect, there is a huge need for food service,(ppl do not prefer these options they are forced to use them because the only available option is to rush to one of the places on 15 min break and then have to miss hands after break to go pick up the food) as well as a deep stack 5/10 nl game as an option 1k-5k buy in, a 5/10 no limit game with time rake and no jackpot as well as many other issues that just aren't ever taken care of.
If I ran this poker room it would not be known as THE WORST RUN POKER ROOM IN THE COUNTRY, it would be the best poker room on the east coast and no one would have any need to go to the isle, gulf stream or whatever bull **** card rooms they have in miami... I would have a million dollar guarantee tournament every couple months w a 500-1000 dollar buy in w a little advertising, satellites, and single table tournaments run around the clock and reaching the guarantee every single time...
Apparently the ppl at the hardrock just seemed to stand by and see kennel club do it last year with ease and not even attempt a go at it. (kennel club turned away probably 500 heads last year for their million gtd) Bottom line is fl is the biggest poker market in the country besides Las Vegas and the tables would be full every day if you actually cared or did your job.
There are numerous dealers who should be instantly fired as well as a tournament director who should have been fired before he was hired due to his complete and utter incompetence (The genius Jeff for those of you who have ever had to deal w I apologize for this....) at the end of the day this room is just so grossly mismanaged it makes me sick and if others have any problems I hope you also voice your concerns here because when it's all said and done come Monday august 28th this room will go back to a predominantly 2/5 no limit room and all of the big games in fl will be played somewhere else other than the hardrock. (which is absolutely outrageous for a casino that is the only and premier casino in florida
) I could go on all day but at the end of the day it's just a waste of breathe bc no one seems to care.... sorry for highjacking live tourney thread here guys but something really needs to be done here and everybody praising this place saying oh tourney was run great are just either lying or wrong.... point being while first tournament was a great tourney it should have been way better-1st tournament 300k guaranteed that produced a 500k prize pool, should have been 500k gtd which in turn way more ppl would have traveled for first event made a way bigger prize pool.
heres a thought these people who traveled a few weeks earlier than jut for the main would be at the hardrock spending money at stores/restaurants and the biggest of all for the casino putting their money on the blackjack tables and into the slots....
It's time to get a clue and make this poker room what it should be .... trim the fat fire people who take no pride in doing their jobs/hire and promote people that do and teach all employees some customer service skills.... Iv'e seen floors flat out yell at customers and I'm not even going to get into how awful the cocktail servers are as I'm sure some other people on here can take care of that plus the other 99 problems they have with this poker room.
