Re: Membership-Based Poker in Texas

there are 3-5 tables every night...but there are not enough for 3 separations of the classes..i think 500 to maybe 1k max is best...

but my point is in the rebuys of people that get stacked - many players play 5-12 hrs and the stacks on the 1/3 get tremendous - so that is the solution i would think that needs to be addressed

B - "Dissolve" the tables every 4/6 or 12 hrs - starting them over - now if the players disagree you can "starve" the tables by bringing players to the new tables and not bringing them to tables that run a long time - some form of this will eventually peter out the massive stacks and they will move to lower average stack games and they can buy in according to the suggestion in Point "a".

.
The latter encourages a forced rat-holing. After all, someone who builds a big stack then welcomes the break and move since they get to pocket an arguably huge profit. This is no bueno given the tendency to rip on those who rat-hole or go south or whatever other term you want to apply to money coming off the table.

The reality is that, aside from a new table opening in a capped environment, you are ALWAYS going to have big stacks and small stacks. This holds true in Biloxi, New Orleans, Las Vegas and any other area where poker might be played. Players adapt and play THEIR game. If I sit with $200 and someone has $2K, the effective is STILL only my $200. Even the big stack players learn this, especially after they take a few hits from the smaller stack who adapts to the table dynamic.

And, if someone is playing with less than $100, then they KNEW what they were getting into when they decided to short-stack or, alternately, refused to top up. It is NOT the responsibilities of the bigger stack to change the rules to accommodate the shorter stacks nor should the house look to make those changes.

Relevantly, the 1/1 game at Mint yesterday was popping. They had 3 tables of that going. It's great for the higher stakes because it feels like it pulls a lot of the nitty scared money out.

Not my experience at all. Really the "match the big stack" or "75% of the big stack" is something I'd only seen in the south until very recently.
