What time does the FL 5/10 get going on a Saturday? Any hope for the 7.5/15 during the daytime hours?

If you guys think low limit omaha is so great, then why do you guys come back every single day and try to get the game?
If another casino is actually spreading that game, then why not go there?
They probably won't open the game because most of you are rude, don't tip and constantly cry and complain.
To be frank... you guys suck, and that's probably why they won't open the game.

So the "mini-pink $2.50 chip" experiment is over. Back to 2/4, 3/6, and 5/10. Apparently the 2/4 folks complained.

5/10 finally got going around 2pm-ish on Saturday. They called a must move game, but it didnt fly. Game was meh. Not horrible, but not juicy either.

No more mention of the 7.5/15 game.

Wowwwwww this place is sooo poorly run. Unreal. Clueless floor personnel, and tourney director. Obsurd.

And great to know they clearly dont care about the players... Love the changing of the guarantee of the main event from 125k to 75k

^^^^

I give them credit for not changing the guarantee after the tourney started like they did last time.......this place seriously boarders on committing fraud on every tourney series they run.......

Really absurd that they lowered their guarantee. What US casinos have even done this? I remember borgata missed a guarantee last year and they just ate it.

The poker room manager should look up guaranteed in the dictionary. If they change the gauranteed prize pool, then it is not guaranteed at all. That is just false advertising.

that's what a guarantee means, if not enough players enter to make the prize pool the guaranteed amount the casino, or its insurance company makes up the difference.

I see the 2/5 deep stack game is going often. Any reason that can't morph into a daily 5/10 game?

No response by 8:45 they will go to someone random.

Did you ever make it out? I'm bored today and want to play some 1-2. I usually go to the Sands, but their weekday daytime crowd isn't my favorite. I have a boatload of comp dollars for Harrah's that will expire unless I visit a property in the next few weeks, so I was thinking of heading to Chester. A dealer friend of mine says I'd be better off at Parx... I don't know. Paralyzed with indecision! "TIME!"

Imo, no one should ever set foot inside that dump. Many share the same opinion.

I usually play the $75 Sunday MTTs. Looking at the Nov schedule I see some $50 Deepstack Satellites. Anyone have info on these?

Re: Harrah's Philadelphia (Chester, PA) (formerly Harrah's Chester)

i had a long conversation with bruce this past weekend and am pleased to say that there will be many positive changes in the near future to make this room better.he was very receptive to my imputs and seems to be very interested in making this a better room.they have started a new 2 5 game with a max. buy in of 500.00 instead of 1000.00.this should help a lot of 1 2 players looking for a bigger game but with a limited bankroll.

Re: Harrah's Philadelphia (Chester, PA) (formerly Harrah's Chester)

Can someone explain what comp dollars are used for? I think I have tons (I get 500 dollar vouchers to go play slots at places, etc), and I literally never use them. I don't want rooms, I don't want food. Is there anything else good I can use them on?

Can you view comp dollars online? I only see tier credits and rewards credits, or did you mean rewards credits?

I never tried doing this, but does anyone know if it's possible to turn rewards credits into slot dollars and then just cash out after 1 spin?
