If they have a waiting list right now, they're not probably exactly hurting for business.
I understand why you don't like the shorter games and that's fine, but CP has no real incentive for change. If it ends up hurting their bottom line, they probably will switch back.
On the other issue, I understand the state laws, but when I was in town several years ago, CP had all the limit games and RA had the spread limit games. Sounds like CP started offering them, they got very popular for awhile, and now the players are going back to RA. It could be partially about the shorter tables, but this is a very common pattern for places that add NL games.
Thanks. I doubt it will lead to any changes, but the knee-jerk "good players win more short-handed" argument is just so frustrating, as those who espouse it clearly haven't put much thought into it.
For the most part, if a good player can adjust to the situation, he will win more short-handed. It is not a "knee-jerk" statement, and those believing that have almost certainly put more thought into it than you have. Of course, some bad players play better short handed, and rake can be a consideration, but I don't think it makes as much difference as you do. Your statement that players will play 10% more hands so they should win 10% more is likely an understatement; there is also more skill involved when fewer players are involved in each hand, so more money per hand could also be made.
I understand you don't like playing short-handed, and that is a legitimate preference. But there is no need to try to come up with a reason why you make less money at it anyway. There is literally no one to whom that matters; a poker room doesn't exist to put money in the pockets of winning players. If you did convince the poker room manager that good players win less 8 handed, that gives him more reason to keep things that way, or to consider making the games even shorter.
They would if poker players stopped patronizing the room. I have for the most part, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
I follow CP and their competitor on Bravo. Their competitor generally has more spread limit players than CP. This was not the case prior to CP opting for 8-handed, and I think there's an obvious reason why.
Lol you have no idea what you are talking about. RA and CP donít compete with each other - you arenít going to get CO mgmt to change anything based on the threat of people going to RA
