Was that a tournament or a cash game? There are plenty of good reasons to prohibit exposing of cards in a tournament for the purposes of preventing collusion. There's really no reason to prohibit exposing of cards in a cash game in a heads up pot. But this was a different issue, the dealer didn't insist it was a dead hand, rather she insisted that turning your hand face up without calling after an opponent raised is a fold. In other words, she was claiming he mucked face up even though he was clearly not making any sort of folding motion, not to mention no one would ever fold top two on that board for one bet.

The double / split scenarios you describe would increase the house edge over the "match play" portion of your bet, but would it seriously compromise the EV of basic strategy Bjack to the point that Roulette with match play becomes the better bet? Interesting, Are you certain of this?- Roulette's house edge is a minimum of 5.26% and perfect basic strategy Bjack's house edge is .59% - I gotta call false here.

Reference:

Matchplays are much more valuable on roulette, you just aren't thinking of it the right way. I'll give a super brief example, for simplicity sake lets say in BJ you are 50/50 to win with no pushes, splits, etc even considered.

$20 match play coupon on BJ , you bet $20 50% the time you win $20 the other 50% you win $0. EV = $10

$20 match play coupon used on a number in roulette. 2.5% of the time you win $700, the other 97.5% of the time you win $0. EV ~$17

Obviously higher variance but return in much much better

You can only use match plays on even money bets (odd or even, red or black, 1-18 or 19-36).

this was in a tournament. what happened was that he checked the river and i bet. after awhile of taking he didnt say anything and flipped his cards face up towards the board(as you would when action is checked down). i then asked/stated so his hand is dead? and the player said he folded, but the dealer stated that it was not a dead hand(he folded a set on a rainbow board where he should never fold, and i was suprised to see him fold it). basicly i assumed his hand was dead based on my reactions after exposing his hand he could have easily made the call.

Tournaments and cash games have different rules involving exposed cards, and different tournaments have different rules. Some kill a hand immediately, others give a warning for the first offense. But as I said, while there are good reasons to prohibit exposing cards in a tournament for collusion purposes, there's absolutely no reason to do it in a cash game, particularly when it's extremely obvious that the person simply didn't realize another player raised.

Rumor has it that a 75/150 game couldn't get started Tuesday night because of there being too many tables for the tournament.

If so, wow.

I love limit hold em tourneys but they just don't draw for some reason. The Borgata actually canx a couple of them during their majors. eh They'll catch on again.

A little while ago someone said it'd been getting ~110 runners on saturdays. Tournament starts @ 2 pm I believe, runs ~10 hours I think someone said before. I'm planning on trying my first one on Saturday

It's not really the PARX way, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

If you want something under $100, that's what Chester and DP are for.

Aug 8 - even the web site does not list the time AFAICS.

The enhanced web site is all flashed up, so you may only be getting the basic web site on a mobile device.
