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

Mike,

Thank you for spreading the 6/12 limit mixed game. I popped my cherry on a timed rake and i love it. I'll be back every weekend that game goes if i can.

Thank you for putting together the best low limit limit holdem and nl holdem poker room ANYWHERE, even if i have to mix with tournament players.

You should be proud of all your staff. Brush, dealers, supervisors, etc. I won't bore you with the usual complaints about the room that you have no control over.

After all, the casino has a limited number of dealers, and they all work shifts with specific start and end times. If they had enough dealers to ensure no player ever went waiting, they'd be paying dealers to stand around doing nothing more than 60% of the time.
You would be correct if all the tables were occupied. They weren't. I made it to a table just in time for the drawing. At least 25 players didn't.

Occupied or full? If they don't have dealers they can't seat tables.

That's my point.
If you don't have the staff, don't have the promotion.

It's very easy after the fact to say "they should have had more staff".

But you can't always predict how popular a promotion will be and how well staffed to be. You don't want 20 dealers sitting around picking their noses either.

Further you also can't always control staff perfectly (ie: you never can) - people get "sick" or call out for other reasons.

Also, people screw up communication sometime. For instance the WPT #1 event Day 2 started late because dealers were accidentally told 11:15 instead of 11:00.

In short - "Waah"

Seems like a lot of overlay alerts for the WTP series. How many of the events/sattys ended up with overlays? That can't be good for future events.

Event 13 5 card PLO has a small $850 overlay on the 20k guarantee.

Looks like a ~150k overlay on the Main Event guarantee of $2M.

I see Hendonmob has updated DB with main event results but it doesn't look like they have any of the other events. Does anyone know, does WPT publish results from the other events in their series?

They do, but MDL has to pass on all the results in order for that to happen. Maybe ask the TD?

Mike, although it was ultimately my fault ainec, i mucked winner of not insignificant side pot because dealer didn’t make it good before running it and then do showdown correctly. What are they *supposed* to do?

It is important to include the action in the hand as to showdown order if Mike's to answer this.

In this hand, BB jammed a covering stack, hero called, third player called. Order is BB, hero, third player. But there is no specific order that dealers have to enforce people can flip their hands over immediately in whatever order they want when there is no more action which is what confused the hero and caused him to muck a winner.

Think it's kinda absurd to suggest this is at all on the dealers and IMO they shouldn't really say anything about who has to show first unless people are refusing to flip their hands or there's a question.

Ive connected to it,only b/c I'm over my 4g Cap and 3G is completly substandard now. That said, I dont really have much any hackers could get into my phone and steal so my worry level is low.
I also get the same message at my job's wifi connection. Its just a general message to be aware I believe. Not specific to a certain network

ML has added some new TVs. They are about the same size as the ones that were already there, but the new ones are mounted a few feet higher than the original TVs making viewing of the new TVs much easier to see. Also, they've filled in some of the gaps - like in the corner by table 2, and in between the cashier and safety deposit box entrance.

What they "should" do, is ask for the players in the sidepot to show first and try to keep the player dying to show the winner for the main pot, from exposing their hand, causing other players to muck.

Thanks

Would also totally be down for some kind of mix that included 2/2 PLO, 5-card PLO, Big O and either 1/3 or 2/5 NLHE.

If anyone is interested in playing 10/20 LH tomorrow, I'll start up the list at 430PM. Will start and/or play short, I really just want to get the game going

It almost went today. There were 4 of us playing 4/8 who wanted to start the 10/20 game, and we started a list and tried to talk a few others into playing. Eventually several more got on the list (maybe 8 or 9 total) but by the time they called the game an hour or two later (around 6:00pm), several of the people on the list had left and only 3 of us showed up at the table. The one who had left (who had said they would play) are mostly day time players.

Good luck getting it going tomorrow (I can't make it) - but you might have to wait until Monday night for 10/20 to go again, especially since there are no high hand promotions this week on Wednesday or Thursday so the room probably won't be that crowded on those days.

Yeah, this one is having trouble keeping its legs I'm afraid. Even with Monday as the "designated" day, it seems there are barely enough people playing to keep it going more than a few hours. Monday is probably a tough day to draw the social amateurs (me) which is what you really want for the game's health. This Monday it was mostly 6-7 handed.

I wonder if Thursday is usually a good day for experimentation, since you'll get a lot of the "early weekend" crowd? (like me.) However, I think there's a 20/40 game promoted for that day, and I'd guess that's a highly overlapped field. (not me)

Yeah yesterday was no shot at 10/20 starting up lol I do agree that Monday is a tough day but am hopeful that it will continue to run for a while longer. There was 15 people on the list this week but when they called all the names we had 6 show up. Fillled up for a little bit, had some people win a big pot and then rack up and then played short for the rest of the time. I've never played 20/40 so idk if there is overlap or not...I'll start a list again tomorrow when I'm there and see what happens
