The question should be how long it takes before the regs get annoyed with a new player who always gets up during the same games.

Re: Mixed Games

Well, I don't plan on getting up during any games, so I really just want to know how they will react to the new guy being tighter than any old man at the table.

Re: Mixed Games

How you going to learn the games by playing tight? Just play every hand til you’re up to speed. You’ll accelerate the learning process through reps and endear yourself to the table at the same time. Two birds one stone.

Re: Mixed Games

I learn by observing. Playing every hand won't teach me as much as folding and watching. I need to develop a theoretical understanding for why I do what I do at the poker table. If I am in every hand, I won't have as much time to think about the game.

Re: Mixed Games

Tight is right when you are a noob. You should have a basic concept of what hands are good or bad. Open with pairs or high cards in stud, double suited is good in omaha, A2xx type hands are good in badugi, etc. If you need practice, do play money on pokerstars. And I highly doubt a 4/8 game is going to be full of sharks anyway.

Got a couple months to try and at least learn the rules if there are any funky ones
I'm late to this thread, but figured I would provide some info since I play in this game when I'm in Vegas. The last time I played was in mid-December. The games were:
  1. Dramaha 2-7
  2. Badugi
  3. Pineapple Stud Hi/Lo Regular (No qualifier)
  4. A-5 Triple Draw
  5. Pineapple Razzdugi A-5
  6. Hidugi
  7. Badacey
  8. Dramaha High
  9. Pineapple Razzdecey 2-7
  10. Badeucey
  11. Superstud High Only
  12. 5-card Double Board Omaha High
  13. Dramaha 49
  14. 2-7 Triple Draw
  15. Archie (9's qualifier)

In my experience, this game can be relatively tight or extremely loose/wild depending on the players in the game (as is the case with so many games). When I was there in December, they kicked it up to 15/30 one of the days as there were some players who had been playing all night and were trying to get unstuck.

Also, big shout out to the mixed game FB group. They are very welcoming (both on FB and in person) and the group is a great forum to generate interest if you want to start a low-stakes mixed game.

Re: Mixed Games

Just back from a 2 week holiday in Vegas. Played the 4-8 mix at Aria once and the 9-18 mix at the Encore three times. Had a great time on all sessions. I highly recommend them to new players. The regs are nice and welcoming for the most part. They will explain the games if need be.
It is very advantageous to at least know the basic games from which all other games derive. I would consider basic = stud, badugi, 2-7, Omaha, Holdem and hi-low games in general.
Hope you enjoy the mix as much as I did :-)
