Be prepared to see players sitting without their mask on for minutes at a time while they nurse a bottle of water. Or the guy who can't figure out that his mask is worthless if it only covers his mouth and not his nose. Or the guy who goes out for a cigarette and forgets to put it back on when he returns inside. Or the guy who always lowers his mask when he talks because he has this belief that otherwise nobody will hear him.

Good luck with this.
I am glad to get what we got. Been playing in South Dakota. 8 handed, no masks required.

I think there is a typo. I believe that you meant to state you’re a “Former Florida poker room supervisor...”

If not, then I’m curious how much they are paying Florida poker-room supervisors anyway?

No, I'm a current supervisor. My room is open and running.

I make less than when I was a dealer but enough to get by.

only 2 states? what about the other 3 states with a betting limit? one with $500, one with $150, and one with $100?

$500 is in the southwest, $150 in the northeast, and $100 in the midwest

Anyone have any updates on Blackhawk? How have the games been? What time do they usually get going?

Games at Ameristar great, lots of people straddling thus with 6 max becomes very fast and aggresive game. Lots of people losing a lot off money fast.
I believe you need twice as big bankroll than 9 max.
Be prepared to play 5 handed because you can still take 45 minute breaks.
So, if you know how to play 6 max and rolled for it (variance will be huge) - games are great.
Games 24/7(1/3 and 2/5)but weekends the best. 30/60 still not running(they had a list going).

Re: Colorado Poker (Black Hawk, Central City, Cripple Creek)

At Blackhawk waiting for them to open the 30. Floor person tells me they won’t consolidate a 1/3 or 2/5 to open a 30. This is exactly what they did last weekend so I’m a little confused.

There are 4 each of 1/3 and 2/5.

I guess as a player you are just at the will of the floor working that day.

With only 9 tables @ 6 max they will rarely be able to get 30 going...Seems like a real shame b/c this way of running the room can kill the game...

Re: Colorado Poker (Black Hawk, Central City, Cripple Creek)

The 30/60 game should be a priority. It generates the most rake and has a higher promotional drop than other games by far. Plus, if that game moves, the room will go the way of The Lodge.

Golden Gates is the biggest poker room now after Ameristar reduced its size.
I hope Golden Gates will step up and will offer better experience(better dealers,) , promotions in order to take top spot in BH(2/5 games, 30/60).

I left Colorado in 2009, so obviously a lot has changed. I used to hate playing at the Lodge (back in the $5 bet days) and preferred the multi-table tourneys at the Gilpin. Does the Gilpin even have a poker room any more? Or a casino for that matter?

I also enjoyed those Gilpin tournaments. It is/was a great room! I left CO in 2012 and don't even remember if it was open when I headed out.

Re: Colorado Poker (Black Hawk, Central City, Cripple Creek)

Sucks they won't open up a 30 for you guys, but there's probably zero chance they're going to close down a 1/3 or 2/5 table even if there's a full list from the sound of things. Just checked Bravo and still 9 tables going at 11:30 on a non-holiday Sunday night w/ waiting lists. Captain Obvious statement here, but guessing it may be hard to get 30/60 off with only 9 tables open at the moment unless there's enough to start the game early in the morning when (if?) there's an empty table.

Give it a month or two and hopefully they can open up more tables and things get back to normal(ish) on the poker side.

Curious, how many max tables does GG have open now? By stumbras' comment, assuming more than 9? See 2 tables currently running on Bravo.
