Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

So do we actually have an opening day for the poker room. I'm surprised there aren't more updates and advertising on the depark website for opening day

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

Shouldn't there be a separate thread for harrington? Seems like this thread got hijacked with talk about Harrington. while I appreciate the info I was confused as to what casino people were posting about.

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

IMO, I think there should just be one thread for all the DE poker rooms. That way, you have a more active thread and a central location for all information and discussions, not three threads that limited posting. Also, would hopefully eliminate someone starting a new thread every time something changes at Dover Downs or Harrington because those threads were back on page 17 due to no one posting in it.

I would understand the need for a separate thread if one or more of the room managers comes in and posts information and updates (like Stan and the Borgata does), but if not, does it really make sense to have three separate threads? I mean, just look at some of the other AC casino poker room threads (Caesars, Tropicana, Harrah's, Trump Taj when not having a $600k BBJ) and how rarely someone posts there.

Just my twenty cents...

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

I agree with "flamacue" the name of this blog is "Delaware Park Poker News" not Delaware poker news. It's just confusing because some people say "I went there last night or friday night or the other night" and then dont say where. So then you don't know if they are talking about Harrington, Dover or Delaware Park. If you're going to post on this thread could you at least identify which place you are talking about??

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

As a guy who lives in Delaware, I agree that one thread makes sense for all of Delaware's poker rooms. That being said, the title of this thread is probably not the best for that kind of thread...

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

Anyone confirm the "dealers have quit" post from above. After getting shut out last Friday I was thinking of going over this weekend to see if I can sit. Based on what I saw it could be a huge mess if they are only able to run two or three tables.

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

Is Harrington's the only Poker room in DE that opened up so far? When does Delaware park open up?

BTW Tip Pooling is a horrible idea.... Customer Service will be very poor because the dealers have no incentive... It's like that at Foxwoods and they treat there player base like crap.

I was there Tuesday afternoon and at 3 o'clock there were 3 1-2 NL tables going. I plan to go over this afternoon (Thursday) and will get you an update for the weekend.

The Poker Room at Delaware Park is it open because everyone seems to be talking about Harrington's Poker Room.

Dealers quit rumor confirmed. Tips are pooled with all dealers, pit included.

Long waiting list today at 3 o'clock with three tables going -- no dealers

Horrible news. Maybe this weekend will change management's mind. I can't imagine it will be a pretty sight. I was amped for O8 too.

Re: Delaware Park Poker Room News

I started the thread, and am OK if a mod wants to change the title to "Delaware Poker Rooms Thread (Delaware Park/Dover Downs/Harrington)" or something like that. Agree that there may not be enough posts to keep three separate threads alive.

I agree, under the condition that people stop using the word "there" and replace it with the name of the casino, at least the first time in the post, so we know what room is being discussed.

Wait, the poker rooms in AC give out free alcohol to POKER players? Has this changed recently?

Yup - it's always been the case as far as I know.
