How have the waits been on saturday nights for 1/2nl? Thinking about taking a ride down tonight, wondering if I should call ahead to put my name on the list.

You might as well call ahead, but the waits haven't been bad. Even with a long list the longest you will wait should be about a half hour because there are so many games going on.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Yes, they have definitely done some patching in the alleys and roadways. Not sure if they got all of them, but I've seen improvements.

Of course, as one poster mentioned a long time ago, this lot is over ground which hasn't been built on before. It will probably take a few years before the ground is completely settled underneath. Until then, this will probably be an annual process of patch and fix after the winter freezes.

Will this evening be another packed room? Or will the holiday kill off the crowds?

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Went to steves prince of steaks last night and was very disappointed. I got cheese steak on a plate with onions and American chz.
They were out of provolone, the food was bland, they didn't have plastic knives (WTF?) way overrated IMHO. I'd never think of going back.

They don't have plastic knives at a Philly Cheesesteak joint? WTF - do you need that for?

Just pick the damn steak up and eat it. Sheesh.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

I was surprised to hear that an all-in raise of more than half the bet doesn't allow a re-raise at some places. My only experience is in AC and on multiple occasions in no limit a re-raise was allowed in this situation.

The all-in would have to double the original raise to re open the action.
Ex. bet of 60 the all-in would have to be 120 or more less is a call

Hoping that the $1/2 PLO game runs regularly.

Yeah, I noticed that going last night. I also noticed an 8/16 game & two 15/30games going at one point.

I was playing 6/12 OE for a while yesterday. Game ran from 11:30-8:30, I was in the must move until 6:30. Pretty good game, I like the half kill to 9/18 in O8. Some pretty shaky play in the stud 8 half, too many players only playing for low hands.

There was an 8-16, three 15-30, and a 30-60 all running at around 10pm last night, actually. And that 6-12 oe game runs all the time as of late.

Do you think playing a pair of Kings in low-limit stud8 versus multiple low hands is a spot you want to often be in?

You're right that was a level. I didn't get a cheesesteak on a plate. WP

Depends on the room. It used to be that PL and NL games used the full bet rule while the half bet rule was used in limit but more recently a number of rooms have gone to the half bet for the no limit and pot limit games also. It's always good to check the house rules. Learned that the hard way in Vegas one day.
