Re: MGM Springfield (Springfield, MA)

yes, it opened yesterday. 1st day all the regs from foxwoods and mohegan populated the 2-5 games. A lot of familiar faces.

A lot of new dealers that deal out 10 hands an hour, but I'm sure that'll get better with time. The dealers that moved over from the other places are solid but not as many as I initially thought.

Every time a dealer sits, there is a 5 min transition between counting the rack, having a chip runner change out the cash, it was quite unbearable.

I think I'll stay away till they get their act together and go back to the CT casinos for now.

Re: MGM Springfield (Springfield, MA)

Yeah it makes sense that there will be a little bit of a learning curve.

Someone in the New England thread mentioned getting tier matched to Mlife Pearl from Foxwoods Gold. Does anyone happen to know if they are doing higher matching? I'm Foxwoods Diamond.

Only 1 day in and the comp talk has started already! Welcome to Foxwoods North.

I give the Mississippi straddle and uncapped buy-ins about a month before they get rid of both. The OMC's that are going to infest this place will never stand for it.

Re: MGM Springfield (Springfield, MA)

Bravo says that there are two 2-5 NL games running now with Buy-ins of $100-$500. Yesterday it was $300 - $1000, which now shows on one line of the waiting list right below the smaller game. Can anyone confirm if today's 2-5 games are at the lower buy-in?

2/5 100-500 is a mistake. Confirmed with front desk. All 2/5 games are 300-1000

Started @ 2500. Minimum Qualifier Quad 2ís.

A few dealers mentioned that you do not need a pocket pair, so AK could qualify on AAAJT if losing. Canít confirm this for sure though.

You think the OMCís are going to reg up a place with very little comps? Seriously?

Why would OMCs complain about an uncapped buyin?

Re: MGM Springfield (Springfield, MA)

I'm told that PLO is being run 10-handed. That is just garbage plain and simple. If you are going to be playing PLO at MGM, please I urge you to speak up the floor as often as possible that it needs to be 9 handed. Really annoying that these casinos want to offer games that they don't even understand the basic format of. 10 handed PLO should be abolished world wide. We don't play ****ing 11 handed NLH. /rant
