Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Wild Horse Pass allows a button straddle much to my annoyance being in the BB the only time someone did it.

I wouldn't like that either, if they started with the blinds. Even places that have a button straddle should start with the UTG player preflop, then skip over the button to give him last action.

Wild Horse Pass had one of the craziest low limit games I've ever played in.

I forget that not everywhere plays limit the same way Minnesota plays limit.

Does everyone have this same opinion?

I'm trying to suggest new things to local 3/6-only room. They are open to ideas.. I'm thinking "October is Button Straddle Month"

Then you don't want to play NL in Vegas. Button straddles happen a lot, and in many rooms, the small blind is first to act.

WRT holmfries issue, in fast betting games, you need to keep your head on a swivel, especially in some seats. I was at Bay 101, where LHE people bet like lightning. I was in the 4 seat, 2nd to act. I saw the flop, looked over at seat 3 to watch his action, and literally 3 seconds later, dealer burns and turns. Everyone had checked behind me already. I complained at the dealer a little but I knew it was way too late for anything to be done. It cost me money too, because the flop and turn had hit me hard, and everyone folded to my turn bet.

This, only button-ante game. No blinds, just a $4 button ante.
