Mixed Game and Non-holdem Game List

Wednesday 30-60 HOE/HOSE - has run 6 straight weeks now, starting in the afternoon

Friday (7/9/2011) - 8-10 PM Stud Hi (10/20/30/30 or 15/30)
Definite - pipes, rubixxcue.
Maybe - ??? [add your name] I might be able to make it for a few hours.

Saturday (7/10/2001) - How about an attempt to get 8/16 S8b, or HOSE, or OE going around 8-9 pm. I'll play any of those.

Frequently
6/12 OE
1/3 PLO

Infrequently
4/8 O8b
2/5 PLO

Re: PARX Poker Thread -- FAQ updated 2011.06.21

I'm up for Mix Games mid week, either 8-16 or 15-30. Friday and Saturday the PLO is too juicy for me to not play.

It's going to be hard to get 15/30 going on Wednesday I think.

What are people's interest for this:

Tuesday
A) 8/16 Mix (this might get some of the tourney players)
or B) 15/30 Mix

Wednesdays (It's going to be hard to get 15/30 going on Wednesday I think.)
8/16 Mix

Thursday
15/30 Mix

The only thing they need to do is make sure that these games are time and not rake per pot. Go to another casino if you don't like the 2/5 game there. $1k max buyin is good for the game.


The BBJ is horrible because now the casino would be able to use this money for promotions. 100k freeroll out of the BBJ money.

Hmmmm. I never said the 2/5 game was broken. Only the buy in max needs to be fixed. If anything you are the one saying it is broken as the rake vs time is even a bigger issue in most people's minds. As for the buy in even you say it is "crazy" but only that it isn't "that crazy"

I can go to any casino I want to go to. I can still voice my opinion and try to have things fixed to my liking as well as the liking of most 2/5 players at parx. Yes, most people buy in at the 2/5 table for 500 or less. The majority do NOT buy in for 1K nor do they want it to be 1K.


As for the BBJ, no one says that Parx has to be a loser and take advertising and free rolls from it. They want to the be best in the east? Fine, have a dollar for dollar bad beat jackpot that grows 10K a day or more on the weekends. Advertise that BBJ amount on twitter and the web site and watch how freaking fast your "fishes" come out and play at the tables.

I agree that taking all those extras out of the BBJ is bullcrap, but so far parx seems to do the right thing when it comes to freerolls and such so I would hope they would continue to do the right thing when/if they implement a BBJ.

so let's get that 1/2/4 game 400 max going, or 2/5 500 max going. Let's get that free alcohol flowing (at least make the miller hi life free), throw in a dollar for dollar BBJ and watch the fireworks happen.

^Ok your opinion has been voiced. We get it... You want to make 2/5 nl a 100 BB game and want a BBJ. I doubt it will happen but you have been heard. If Parx management agrees with you, they will implement the changes as they always have but for the time being let's talk about more realistic and important things like the idea of antes in big bet games..?

Just so MY opinion gets heard, I doubt I'll ever play Parx again if they cap their games at 100BB.

I said the buyin for 2/5 was not crazy. Most casinos do make it 500 max buyin. I don't play it right now because I don't have enough for a 1k 2/5 nl. I will wait till I have enough and then play. I like the 1k but it seems to be a big jump from 1/2 in terms of a max buyin. I think 1/2 should have a $100 min buyin.

I personally do not want a BBJ at Parx. It costs each player around $2-3 an hour. The odds of hitting it are terrible and you may never hit it in a lifetime.

They really need free alcohol. I don't drink when I gamble, but notice my win rate increase when others are drunk.

The 30 HOE game has definitely run for more than 6 weeks straight. More like 10, IMO.

What's this talk about a 50 HOSE game? When did that go off?

I don't think it did, I think he just misread the board. Right after he posted I checked and it was the normal 30 game.

Word from the rumor mill that $10 chips are close (4 or so weeks). . . maybe. . . /shifty eyes

Also Chocolate sounds to have been wrong, looks like Peach ( much better choice imho ).

I'd still play from time to time, but for the record 1k max is my favorite aspect of the whole room

I really wouldn't worry about it, 3 different people with input on the issue at Parx have come up to me since this stupid discussion started and asked me what the deal with it is and could it please stop because its never happening. Lol, I wish I could stop randoms from saying dumb things on the interwebs.

There was a short handed 30 must move game on Wednesday that no one wanted to move to the main game from so to avoid having to move they changed the game so the table wasn't a must move anymore, but then the game broke like 20 min later.

It didn't go off, 4 or 5 people said they would play and then only two actually sat. I would like to play 50-100 up to 100-200 hose or hoe any day of the week, willing to play short as well.

yes. i had mentioned i saw a 50/100 hose game going when i was at PARX last. i think it was wednesday. thats why i was curious what the spread was like nightly because i wasnt aware anybody played HOSE that big there. it jumped out at me on the game board.

Re: PARX Poker Thread -- FAQ updated 2011.06.21

most times ive stopped through it was NL and small limit games. Weds. the spread was awesome selection. 1/2, 2/5, 5/10 NL- 4/8, 8/16, 15/30, 30/60 OE or HOE(I think)-1/3 plo. and if im not mistaken there was a mix 1/2nl/plo. lots on the game board. i'll stand corrected on that but im pretty sure that was all up there.(including the 50/100 HOSE).

It was pretty packed, but still only about a 15 minute wait on a 20-deep 1/2 list which was nice. Not a terribly fishy table (there was one complete donk) but a few sub-standard players. Noticed the tournament went until about 11, is that standard?

It just baffles me how people think buying in for 500 in a 1k max game is putting you at a huge disadvantage.

If you feel like you have an advantage over the other players, which is why you're in the game to begin with, and you're sitting with people willing to get it all in lighter than you, would you rather give yourself a chance to win $500 or $1000(or whatever their stack is if less than $1000)? The only time it helps you buying in short is if you are playing outside of your roll and are trying to reduce the variance.

well said. i had this debate last week and your statement says it better than I can. There is really no advantage to buying in short unless you are playing outside your bankroll or you feel that you are in a game that is to tough. if you buy in short to reduce varience, that by definition is saying that you are playing outside your bankroll. Either way you should not be in the game.

Before all the superstar pros chime in...I know that there can be advatgages to playing a short stack but ino matter how you slice it, if you are a winning player buying in short causes you to lose money in the long-term. That being said I am sure that there are a few outstanding short stack players that this is not the case....very few and if you are that good you should probabaly be p[laying higher stakes

Some people like myself prefer 100 bb poker.
The problem is not buying in for 100 bb's
It's when you double-up are then forced to play deep
On a 100 bb table maybe only 2 or 3 are deep where on a 200 bb the chances are most are deep.Then my choices are to play deep or leave for a hour and come back in for 100 bb's.
It's not a bankroll decision (for some it may be)It's a comfort level choice.
I would prefer a 100 bb buy-in but I know thats not going to happen so I just
play around it.You are absolutely right their is no huge disadvantage in a 100 bb buy-in.
