They sure are spending a lot extra in hourly fee and floor tip to keep it private.

Your comments were in response to my post about how in the short and long term that a private game in a public cardroom is against all sound business judgement and practice. That a license-holder in Lee County should be operating ALL aspects of their business in a public, not private, manner.
What do you think will happen when the off season comes, and the tourists go away? This game will go public again. But why would the guys who play it want that, when what they ought to do is go play privately somewhere else, with no drop, no fee and no public? Long-term, this move of a private game in a public cardroom will kill the game.
He is talking about bringing a private home game into a casino I believe, not all of a sudden a few guys turning a daily game into a private game.

My thought was that the private game was bringing a home game to casino trying to recruit new players if that is the case I think room would pick up a few of the players from private game when it breaks. And they always do.
I didn't realize that the private game there wasn't that way. What appears to be going on is that a few players determine who can and can't play on a daily basis. It's not the same as 9 guys getting together to have a private game.
I don't understand the benefit to room the way it is now. It appears most days both games break early. I'm sure someone is benefiting.

Dave, after thinking about it a little more I agree with you that private games don't belong in public card rooms.

Re: Naples Fort Myers Poker Room (Bonita Springs, FL)

OK- 1. am glad that you see it more my way than before, and 2. I now understand more of what YOU said- about bringing in a private game to a public cardroom. That would be OK once in a while, and its done all the time, bachelor parties, b-days, celebrations, onetimers, etc.
But this is a formerly public PLO game that is now run at a publicly-licensed facility as a "closed" game. I am glad we agree that it is not a good thing, long-term.

Is the PLO still a private game? Used to play it 3-4 times a year while visiting Sanibel.

Re: Naples Fort Myers Poker Room (Bonita Springs, FL)

My best guess would be no. It is off season and action is significantly slower. I've noticed online they've been getting either a 1/2/5 or 2/5/10 PLO game going.

Re: Naples Fort Myers Poker Room (Bonita Springs, FL)

I went a couple months ago tops. 3-card poker is a house spread, but single-player backed game, google is your friend on that one. Two-card wasn't there when I was, but I'd assume it would be the same concept of house spread, single player backed game.

If you have the roll, play the 2/5/10/20/(sometimes 40) PLO game.

It's the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. I'm guessing it changes in season

Lol, I know this was 5 years ago, but the dog track is not a Seminole casino.

It's on and off in slow season. In season it's more common. But if you want a big game, the 1-2-5 PLO and the 2-5-10 PLO and many times 5-10-20 PLO, gets some crazy action. Sent using 2+2 Forums

Re: Naples Fort Myers Poker Room (Bonita Springs, FL)

Played $1/$2 there yesterday. $2 entry fee just to walk in. The lady at the desk to whom I paid the $2 said it's because dog races were going on. Very logical, they have to charge an entry for people to come bet on dog races where the house obviously makes a killing.

The rake on poker was ridiculously high. At $1/$2 it was 10% up to $5 and an additional $2 every hand to fund the hourly high hand bonuses. So for a $50 pot the rake is 14%. The play was indeed atrocious. A guy at the table called raises with J4 and J5.

Welcome to Florida. Everything you described is SOP for Florida poker. Not all the pari-mutuels require an entry fee when you walk in to play poker, but many do. It's all part of the price of playing where J4 offsuit is often considered a worthy starting hand to a raise.

Re: Naples Fort Myers Poker Room (Bonita Springs, FL)

Played here this summer, was pretty fun. Loosey goosey, lent well to my style, personally.

Lots of fish and people who thought they were pros on the 1/2, so I guess in all reality standard fare.

Wanted to play 2/5. Forget if they were only spreading 1/2 and 5/10 or if the 2/5 was maybe one table with a long list, but it was daytime on a Friday and guys playing 5/10 were talking to me outside while we were smoking, bitching about being down $500 or so on the 5/10 after a couple hours. I was laughing in my head, like damn dude, it's that serious? You're playing 5/10, that's one medium pot at worst where I normally play, on 2/5...

Fun room, a little weird, so standard Florida vibe.

Re: Naples Fort Myers Poker Room (Bonita Springs, FL)

Played there today, dealer was telling me the "big PLO game" has been good and be pushed a $100k+ pot in that game. Seems ironic for a dog track

100% believable. Last time I played in it there was at least $200k on the table. I only brought $10k because the website had it listed as a 2/5/10 game and I wanted to shortstack a few buyins. In reality it was a mandatory 2/5/10 with a $20 straddle every hand, and a $40 re-straddle at least 50% of the time. I was grossly understacked for the game even after running my first buy-in up to a little over $12k.
