8/16 lhe is dead at this point...would be nice if it came back though...maybe reducing the time to $4 would help, since players are used to paying $5 time for 10/20 out east.

4/8 and 15/30 lhe games have been very healthy...that 6/12 OE game seems very popular too, although there have been some complaints about it not running late night.

As noted, 8-16 limit is dead. 6-12 OE appears to have run past sundown recently although for a long stretch that was not true.

There always seems to be an interest list of about 3-4 8/16LHE players. Would they play HOE or HOSE? Maybe a combination would get it to 6-7 players at least. Anyone up for any of these tonight?

Re: PARX Poker Thread

The tournament chop was ridiculous and makes it even more +++ev to play these if people actually do these chops on the reg. My buddy was 2nd in chip stack and they chopped it 10 ways (9 got paid normally) and he got 3k (6.5k on top) , and 7 people were really happy to get 1k, when min cash was only ~~$880~~. Dudes that spend 8 hours getting to the final table then being super stoked about a chop that gives them little more than a mincash.

I would play 8/16 HOE...the 8/16 holdem always broke so it was no fun

Hi Ari,

Any idea yet on what the schedule is going to look like? The buy-ins? The blind structures?

Thanks.

I have to say that I was thoroughly surprised at how busy Parx was last night on a Sunday during a summer holiday weekend. Action was good all day

The chop was funny as ****. I swear I said to a friend I may have to start playing these if people chop so badly. The short stack was 2 hands from all in blind so I think he did ok with 1k, but 2 others jumped at the 1k offer too and that was just odd. Sucks to be "that guy" but if I'm chip leader I almost def don't chop before everyones ITM. Unless of course I leverage others fears and get a sweet deal

I sure hope Parx is ready for the 260 they're getting for the tourney tonight. I'll be coming in 6th and am willing to chop!

+1

Would love to see a PLO, O8, and HOSE. And hopefully they won't all be like $400+$50 like at the Borg.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Please offer a good o8 tournament. If you look at past AC tournaments, o8 tournaments draw much better than other non-NLHE games.

I wouldn't mind some lower stakes ones in the 150-230 ish range. The borgata ones are too high for me, and I like to have at least 50% of my action.

Any PLO event would be clutch, 200+30 is usually a pretty good number but I would be willing to play in a 350 one since it's so close to where I live.

If that was the amount, some one got a share they didn't deserve. I went out in 18th place right before the chop was agreed on. $1,164 would have been the chop at 18.

Ahhh I remember you busted 44 vs 66. So sick man, I felt really bad for you. Yeah I really didn't like how the chop went down because of that. I've played with you before by the way.
