Was a crazy night there last night due to AC closing down on top of that floor guy told me a lot of dealers and floor called out since some live in areas that had to evacuate and or prepare for storm.

hmmm...nitfest shorthanded...just open every hand...you're in the best possible situation to abuse the people you view as fish.

played at parx probably 50 times and it's as well run of a room as i've ever seen

Just called. Slots are open, but the customer service rep had no information as to when other parts of the casino will open.

id say it normally plays like a 2-5 however with the straddles it can play alot bigger..."of course"

live game report is currently empty, so I assume it is still closed.

5/10 went to 10/10 when the new $10 chips came in. i believe it was mostly at the players' desire.

Don't get me wrong, I love the 10/10 but it'd be even better with greens in play.

I'm trying to find out the same coming from south jersey. I'm wondering about the bridges from Jersey to Philly.

Update: I went to traffic.com and entered my home address and parx address (3001 Street Rd, Bensalem, PA) and searched. It gave me the route and also on the map it has exclamation points on route map listing problems. No Exclamation points in my way so I am good. You could try the same, if there is an exclamation icon click it and it will tell you the problem and you can try another route that avoids them.

Don't bother showing up if you haven't already. Disappointing showing from Parx in their moment to shine while AC was closed down. Not nearly enough dealers, and of the dealers that were here, most were completely incapable of running a non-holdem game.

It's a shame. With the much smaller time charges at Parx, I thought there was a decent chance that some of Borgata's high limit games would move over. I haven't spoken to many Borgata players who have been pleased with their Parx experience.

Not enough dealers I'm assuming? Because there aren't many games running on the live report. Shame. I was gonna head there later. Any idea what's going on at Chester?

I think they've been doing a really good job seating people considering both the increased demand and the limited resources.

it's a mad house @ Parx now. lists in triple digits, apparently a lot of dealers called out/couldn't make it in. I've seen more tables open here before, but never lists this long.

thought I'd get here before the rush but apparently not.
