Who decided to make 2/5 10 handed now. Terrible decision

The players who forgot that 9-max leads to five-handed games with one open seat, two in lobby, and a third man walking when he shouldn't be. Then those five complain and often successfully attempt to break the game.

Just chiming in to say that I'm opposed to management's decision to switch 2/5 back to 9-handed. I understand why it was made, but I greatly prefer 9-handed and found it a nice distinguisher from MGM. I'm now less inclined to choose MDL over MGM.

Re: Maryland Live! (Arundel Mills Mall; Hanover, MD) -– FAQ in OP, added 2014.02.02

Question for the tournament guys:

How long does the Monday Fat Stacks Bounty ($100 /w $25 bounty, $5k GTD), 25k chips normally last?

Thinking of heading down and playing tomorrow/today, just curious how long I should plan to be there best case scenario! :P

Bravo has been updated with June promotions. If you play 25+ hours in the week, you will be entered into a $20K freeroll on each Sunday in June (3:15pm starting time).

And I'll be playing MGM all June. Another one of MDL's take from the casual player give to the residents promo. Getting really sick of these.

The old heads who consider 6-7 handed too short to play. I saw numerous older guys complaining in general and to the supers about the switch to 9 handed. Same kind of guys who moan and groan every time a player raises preflop as if it's a dirty move.

Definitely agree that this further detracts from the few reasons to play at Live! over MGM.

Mike's been doing this for years. When I complained about it in 2015, Rapini & others told me how stupid I was to expect promotions money to come back to the weekend players who contribute most of it. The only way to have a decent shot at it is to quit your job to play all week. Oh well.

Please quote the post where I said you were stupid. I've definitely said that a previous post of yours was nonsensical because it was nonsensical, but I don't recall ever calling you stupid.

If instead I said that it was a smart business decision by Mike to direct promotion funds in a way that would cause an increase in traffic during down times, I stand by it.

You guys don't really think that this will be the only June promotion do you?
Because I highly doubt it.

Well, last time you didn't like a promotion, you claimed you wouldn't play here that month. Then spent all month posting in here about how "nitty" the games were, as if you really were playing here.
Good Luck, see you in July!

As I stated above, there will surely be other promotions. And I disagree with your assumption that the players who only play on weekends contribute the most to the fund. But, with other promotions running, surely you don't have a problem with a promotion paid for by the all week players, even if it's skewed towards them?

Folks don't jump into conclusions. Today is still the 26th. Mike usually posts them close to the 1st.

Also, the other location posted them very early this time.

Like any business they are competing for the same player pool, so, I would assume it would be competitive.

Yeah last time I objected to the promo I think I ended up playing in the room twice that month - I think once because there was a long wait at MGM and once because I was already close to MDL. Though I think I played like 10 sessions at MGM that month.

Pre-MGM I spent nearly 100% of my time at MDL and expected something like 80% at MDL after but it's been more like 20% and declining.

The freeroll tournament is way way smaller than previous monthly promos so perhaps there's something else to come. Or they've been depleting the promo fund and need to tone down the promos to let it recover a bit. I'd expect June to be kind of a down month anyway.

Dealer last night told our table that June will have a 4 per hour promo. I suspect the Freeroll was announced because we can begin earning hours on Monday...

How many entries are expected overall for the multi day going on now? Also, how many can be expected for Sunday's $100 bounty?

IMO no promo is better than a promo that I can't win. At least the no promo leaves the money in the promo fund where I could possibly win it at a later date.

I think I'm missing something. Neither MGMNH nor MDL has weekend promotions, right?

MDL has the 25 hours in a week to get entry into the freeroll. We're talking about the announced June promos.

Today I read the flyer for the June freeroll tournament promotion. You have to earn your 25 hours between Monday 12:00am through Saturday 8:00am - so weekend play doesn't count. For the tournament itself, you get 8,000 in chips and a $20 staff add-on gets you an additional 10,000 chips.
