Any chance of spreading short deck hold 'em? Looks like a fun game to play.

Does this weekend’s $100K gtd. tourney have any of those optional “dealer appreciation add-ons” in addition to the $450 buy-in?

Dealer tip is part of the entry fee ...

Quote:
$390 from each entrant goes to the prize pool, $32 is house revenue, $6 is registration staff, $20 is dealers, $2 is jackpot
Source

So it is $390 + $60

Yeah I read that too but found it to be far from conclusive. My suspicion of less-than-forthcoming business practices at casinos knows no bounds. Thanks for the clarification.

pro tip: don’t order anything at the table because it’s shoddily made in the poker kitchen upstairs

Not true. However, we are working diligently towards taking over food service and getting food from all the outlets as we used to. The difference will be, the poker room is in charge of the food runners. When this changes, we are hopeful the quality and service will vastly improve.

Thanks

Is the poker kiosk near the stairs to the room every going to be fixed? It's been down for two months at least. Difficult to track promo status when it is not working.

It has been broken a lot longer than two months. Probably closer to a year. I can't imagine them fixing it now if they have let it go this long.

They chew up cards, they break down constantly, and lease for $585 per month. And here are the hard cold facts: They don't help fast dealers, other than to give them a break in shuffling. A fast dealer will shuffle and cut in 7-9 seconds. I can do it and I'm much older than most. It takes at least that long for a dealer to push the button, put the cards in, take the cards out, and push the button to start the shuffle. Dealers that aren't so fast, this does help. Contrary to popular belief, no place gets max rake every hand. So when you guys do your math and continuously think we make $150-$165 per hour on games, I have to chuckle and I'm sure Johnny does as well. I keep pretty good records and I've never had a raked game that drops anywhere close to that



It took threatening to take the 2s out, and we would have, to get 1s approved. So we'll have the slower, better shufflers soon and we'll keep these until then,



Thanks





Mike


Sitting at a table hand shuffling because Deckmate 2 is broken and no others available. So I thought I would reply to your February post to check on the status of getting some functional Deckmate 1s?

This Sunday 315PM, only Omaha tourney this month. $200 PLO8. This is a ‘make-up’ from the snowed out PLO8 from March during Deepstacks. 30 min levels, reg and re-buy for 4 levels, since it’s Sunday afternoon kind of fast structure, so it doesn’t go too late.

Come out, have some fun splitting pots, getting quartered and donating to jack up the prize pool for me!

Mike can you shed some light on all transactions being tracked above 1k now? How are they doing it? Where can we expect this info to be sent to?

My guess is it's part of AML compliance. So if you track sessions accurately and pay your taxes, there's nothing to worry about. Also, if it is AML compliance, you're not going to get a lot of information from anyone about it because a known system is a beatable/game-able system.
