You are right, it is great space for a poker room. We have plans to have 61 poker games eventually.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

The free parking is pretty awesome. If alcohol is also free, I will visiting pretty often. Saving 20-25 dollars a trip would be very nice indeed. I may have to come down opening night, sounds like it's gonna be a great room.

AC: Borgata :: Philly : Parx

All sounds terrific. Only question, and apologize if silly, what is a $2 value chip?

It means they will have $2 chips for use in games like 8-16, 6-12, etc.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Ari,

Are there any plans to have other games like Stud 8 or even HOSE? I suppose that it would depend on people making a list and getting enough to sign up, but are you training dealers in 'non-standard' games?

I am anxiously awaiting the opening date.

We have trained our dealers in all those games, it would be great to get a regular 8/16 hose game.
