I have definitely seen this before, and even worse, going back months. Sometimes you can look and see a name on the computer, but if you walk over to the screen display it won't appear for unknown reasons.

I questioned them about how I went from first to third, the desk woman gave some confusing answer and as I walked away she commented to other desk person and they both laughed. Another thing is the must move table, the main 6/12OE game is typically a regfest. The feeder game is where you want to be in my experience. You are supposed to move to main game as seriority at table comes due. For example, if seat 2 was at feeder game the longest and seat opens at main game, he must move over there. I have just joined feeder game on one occasion and I am 100% positive that I was by far newest at table and I was forced to move over to main game. There is definitely some preferential treatment going on at this place.
I experienced this Thursday night as well. Got bumped down the list to someone who was clearly a regular and chatting it up with the floor managers.

Yes, the brush is aka the floor who escorts you to your table.

3 2/5 tables and 2 2/3 tables right now. Now, a lot of people are at Borgata today and this weekend but the 2/3 tables are definitely cannibalizing some of the weaker regs and players from the 2/5 games. Oh well.

Yeah it's the same link but you have to navigate to it, can't bookmark the report directly. Click Parx east -> poker -> live game report

As long as 2/3 stays 300 max I don't think it's bad for the room. 500 max would seriously hurt the 2/5 which would sadden me. I think they screwed up making the rebuy minimum less than 300. I think the game should have been 3/3 NL, 300min/max

What do you mean? The rebuy minimum isn't less than 300.

This reminds me of another poker room position, or hustle in this case being I do beleive it is considered a "private contractor" type gig:

Runner

Do we have these on the east coast?

Ill do it...high games only

Alot of people did not care for the 200 BB's tables.
This is just confirmation of that.Deep play has a different skill set then 100 BB's.
Some like the difference some don't.This level gives the player a option
The games will sort themselves out as they usually do.

That's not really the reason. Any time you wedge a game between a higher and lower, you're going to pull the weaker players from the higher and the stronger players from the lower.

If they didn't change the structure of the 2/5, I think it's pretty bad that the min buy-in at 2/5 is lower than the buy-in at 2/3. That would exacerbate the issue.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2011.09.08

I played 2/5 last night, and while there were only 3 tables going, the action was great, A guy raised my flop bet with middle pair against my KK and called my shove cause I had raised him once before and he just knew I was bluffing this time.

I agree with you that 200 BB's is a different skill set, but A) you can just buy in for $500 at $2-$5 (effective stacks are effective stacks) and B) SPR wise, 100BB live don't play anything like 100BB internet games...

A) If you double up you are stuck playing with a bunch of 200 BB stacks.
At a 100 BB table you only play against a few if any.

B)With the larger pre-flop raises it's much easier to get your stack in with a big
hand.Against most live players I prefer the pre-flop power poker game.

It's not a great tournament given the rake and structure but it usually gets a decent amount of runners for a weekly non-guarantee tournament.

Speaking of bad structure, does anyone know if there are ante's ?? That would really complicate things.

I know the structure is pretty bad, i.e. @ the 800/1600 level avg stacks are usually around 16-18k.... need some run good to get deep in these.
