Everyone is very open at the table about being in a terrible game. But the players are very friendly and there was good banter and atmosphere in my opinion. Game usually seemed to get better during the night time when most of the regs dropped out and random tourists and recs would walk in looking to play some poker.

A tight solid reg who's willing to adjust slightly to steal the blinds more frequently in certain spots preflop, and who's able to make big plays at pots vs capped ranges and certain players (i.e. overbets) should do fine in this game. Yes the games were pretty bad but still feels beatable. Hourly rate including the get paid to play promo might still not be as good as finding a juicy game at planet hollywood or something though. The noon - evening hours grind might not be worth the hours. Optimal strategy for a TI reg might be to not go for the 60 hours but go for something less while putting volume in at night times. The place next to poker room has the best french fries ever, I'll give them that.

The story isn’t complete without someone asking:
So how much did you lose (win)?

Its mostly been after 8 or 9pm. Makes sense as most of the noon start bonus hour grinders wont usually stick around past 10 as 10hr+ sessions are pretty draining.

Not bad for 60 hours in nitty promo chasing games with extra drop.

And sure, 60 hours isn’t a huge sample, but it’s still nice to know whether anyone can win in certain conditions.

Re: Rake back deal at Treasure Island 1/3

So you made about $23/hr.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if your winrate would have just been higher just playing somewhere else.

Of course, 60 hours is a meaningless sample also.

I need to use up some of my TI comps. I think I’ll grab a slice of pizza (great pizza next to Starbucks) on Sunday and check out the game.
