I agree. I esp don't care about a BBJ. It's one thing for a big tournament, but makes no sense in a cash game IMO. Let those guys buy lottery tickets if they want long odds.

I've seen straddles in the Omaha 8 game, and half of us at the table were unsure if it was allowed, but it stood. Once one dude does it, then others start joining in. So are no straddles allowed? or is it only UTG Or am I misunderstanding something here.

Guy can't handle his drink. The dealer made a mistake in pulling all the money into the main pot when there should have been a $30 side pot. Drunky who's not involved in the pot starts slurring (imagine Barney from the Simpson's voice) at the guy who was short, accusing him of splashing his chips in on purpose to get in for full value when he was short, which is not what happened at all. I told him to shut his mouth, and he got mad and said he was going to punch me in the face.

Security came and gave him the boot. I've played with the guy before and he gets absolutely hammered (like at least 10-15 drinks in a few hours) every time. He's not a fun drunk at all, a real mean sob to say the least.

Someone told me (while I was in AC) that if you have a Parx premium (green) card, liquor is free in the poker room. Can anyone confirm?

Game started around 6:30pm yesterday. This was the second time I've seen it go -- last time was on Thursday night. Both times, it has started at 30-60 Stud/5-10 NL until it filled up, and then the players kicked up the Stud side to 50-100 by agreement of all who were seated.

Of course, if anyone wanted to keep it at 30-60/5-10, we could probably live with that.

We've talked about trying to get it going regularly on Thursday nights (I know I'm definitely going to try to make it, schedule permitting).

LOL, funny post. But, in all seriousness, no one is starting out with 1000BBs. Lots of guys with 3k-ish stacks.

100BB

I myself wouldn't sit at a $50/$100 7cs with <10k, but I'm a nit. Also,that benefits the 5/10 IMHO (maybe make it 50/100+10/25?). I haven't seen the game, would be fun to watch with close to 100k on the table.

Speaking of which, are there thoughts of "walling" off a higher limit area? Not that I'll be playing in a High limit area any time soon. Somewhere away from the front so as not to attract the odd railer, but welcome the occasional reg railer? A wall similar to the one that separates BR from CR (but nicer) that has 6 or so tables behind it maybe?

Was referring to the stack size for the NL half (and meant to say "bb" for "big blind", not "BB" for "Big Bet"), where stack size is more relevant. $10k = 1,000 big blinds at 5-10 NL. Most guys are sitting with what I'd say is around 3k, which gives them 300 big blinds for the NL and 30 big bets for stud. I'd say a 30 big bet stack is more than big enough for any fixed limit game (assuming you have the ability to reload if you get short) -- it's not like you're going to be able to felt someone on any particular hand.

There was talk of kicking the NL half up to 10-25, but there were a couple objections. In particular, some players would prefer it to be straight stud, and are only tolerating the NL half so as to get the stud in.

Not sure what the "BR" and "CR" refer to, but there is a half-wall in the back, where this game was spread. It's easy to walk past, and people could rail the game if they really wanted to, but there's definitely a line of demarcation. Railing hasn't been a problem at all so far, but you're right that it could become one in the future if the game becomes super-popular and/or deeper.

$2,000. It's not very strictly enforced from what I've seen, though.

Yeah, there's a half-wall that looks similar to the bathroom/card room wall (except with gaps in it to walk through) that separates the high limit section from the rest of the room. There's maybe...eight to ten tables back there?

Why so deep? Especially considering that the max buyin for the 5/10 is $2,000. Although that makes the buyin for the stud part definitely on the light side, since I'm thinking that if I was going to play that high I would want around $3,000 - $4,000 in front of me.

I'm wondering now - what is the allowed buyin for a game like this? Just curious, because it's more than I can afford. But it does have me wondering.

Certainly couldn't short stack buyin ($500 minimum, correct?) for the 5/10 NLHE part!

Thanks.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Just FYI, I deleted a few posts that discussed BBJ and straddling in a general context; there are other threads on the forum for that. Ari has made it pretty clear that Parx will not have a BBJ for the foreseeable future, although the straddle question seems open. Please keep posts on-topic. Thank you.

When the rotation is stud heavy (which this game is) I'm sitting 10k min (2 orbits 50/100 7cs could conceivably cost 4k+ depending on line up). Does the 5/10 side turn into the "need to get unstuck" side in this game? Another reason why that side should be a juicy 10/25. Nice game either way though.

I still think this is unnecessarily deep. Next time I'm in the game (which will hopefully be Thursday night), I'll take closer note of the stack sizes. Also, I'm pretty sure people are buying in deeper than 2k for Stud (although certainly not as deep as 10k) and then no one cares that we're technically deeper than the rules allow when it switches over to 5/10.

I think the primary concern with the limit is just keeping the game going. Like I said, we'd keep it down at 30-60 Stud / 5-10 NL if that's what we had to do to keep other players comfortable. And the reason the NL side isn't getting kicked up is because some of the Stud enthusiasts are only tolerating the NL side of the game just to keep it going.

The straight answer (and he tried to give it to you but also inject humor at the same time) is that the minimum buy-in is $40, but that there is no maximum because it's a limit game and you won't gain any advantage or put any player at risk by buying in for 20 racks if you feel like it.
