Re: Delaware Park (Wilmington, DE)

Can any PLO regular comment on the frequency of the 1-2 PLO games? I haven't been checking Bravo recently, but in February, it only seemed to run on occasion (random nights, but even weekend nights were not steady; for example, sometimes game would break early by 7pm on a Friday night).

Re: Delaware Park (Wilmington, DE)

It was running daily from 2 - 10 ish, then is started to taper off again. Normally takes only 3 or 4 playing a few hands for a table to fill up any day of the week though.

People hate moving in fear the game won't start, but once cards are in the air it fills quickly.

Re: Delaware Park (Wilmington, DE)

Played there last weekend for the first time in a couple years. I noticed the rake has gone from $4+1 all the way up to $5+2! That's criminal. No wonder the room was practically dead (3-4 tables of only 1/2 NL going) at midnight on a Saturday night. How long ago did they up the rake from $4+1?

It's still a well run poker room, but the rake is too damn high.

My guess is around the same time their competition raised their rake (e.g., Horseshoe Baltimore).

I usually go on weekdays and I would say it runs most days. If you see it on the bravo running it usually runs for a long time but you can always call them and see how many people are in the game.

It's pretty similar to the other rooms in the philly area. Sugarhouse is the same and Harrah's it planning to up it soon. When I started playing it was 4+2 and a few months later they made it 5+1 which was the same as Harrah's Chester, Sugarhouse, and Parx. I suspect the reason for the change to 5+2 is because they couldn't compete with other casinos when it game to high hands since even before then they had fewer cash games. It's hard to get the high hand chasers with a $100 high hand when the other casinos are offering $300 or 500 even if in reality it's much easier to win at dp cause of fewer players. Also if they cut the other promotions like the freeroll tournament and slot dollars cold turkey they would piss off a lot of old customers so this probably was the only option.

It seemed to be working but for some reason they decided to do some barrel drawing thing which no one gives a **** about this month instead of a $500 high hand and that's why it's been dead this month.

Re: Delaware Park (Wilmington, DE)

Gotta be honest, the June schedule looks terrible.
Sad considering how great this room use to be.
