Nice way to top off a losing session, thanks parx.
I thinking something can be arranged here

How is the 15/30 lhe game? Crazy pre flop action or abc old timers? Also, are there long waits for this table?

A little of both depending on who's sitting at that time. Usually not a big wait, but if you happen to get there at a slow time right after the game starts and fills it might be a rougher ride. I have only waited longer than 60 minutes once, and usually it's more like 20-30 min if there isn't an open seat. Your best bet it to just sit in another smaller game while you wait.

I may not focus as much on hours next time around if 15 min levels stick for the monthly freeroll. Even though I've earned 15K starting chips.
Just spoke with a supervisor at Parx who said it is still 20 minute levles. Where did you get this from?

I'd do this tonight and would play 4 handed to get it moving. Could make it by 8pm ish.

Are there nits playing the O/E games that wouldn't do this? If so, the mixed game would probably have to start earlier in the afternoon.

It was a misprint we are 20 min levels. Sorry about that.

Sorry, can't play tonight but I'm good most Saturdays.

There are a couple of hurdles for a 8/16 HOSE game to get going.

1) The 6/12 players either won't play hold 'em (usually the older guys), or won't play regular stud (usually the younger guys). This hurts the overall number of players that might be interested in a mixed game.

2) They've been spreading a 10/20 OE game lately. Might have to sway
some players away from that game. Also, can't see Parx spreading 6/12
OE, 10/20 OE, and 8/16 HOSE. Too close to each other.

It can get done, but we'd need a group of 4-5 to all show up on the same day/time and get it going shorthanded (which I'd be willing to do).

Some people on here really make me laugh on what you cry about, Overall parx is a year old and is one of the top poker rooms in the country. I have played in many and I am glad to call Parx my home.

If this was the $5 PLO game you were referring to - it's a great game! I was visiting Parx last night for the first time and sat in this game till 4:30am until it got 4 handed (I was the guy from MA).

Anyway, does this run regularly, and if so, why don't they increase the max to $800 or $1000? Even with a single blind, it still plays like $5/10 PLO and $500 is too short as a max BI.

A 10/20 OE game with a 6/12 going? guess the we only spread venetian limits aka 8/16 then 15/30 is over? (yes that's been told to me)

Any chance if you guys pick a day/time to run an 8/16 or 10/20 horse game, someone in the poker room would give the game a promo rake/time? Like half time for a full game or something..or free time if it was short?


Always a good way to get things started.

Ari agreed to do something like this for Stud, but the game never went off.

Naw, he's referring to me. I had about a billion of them but I couldn't remember what they were called and kept trying to order a Narangasset, lol.

Great playing with you guys - I hope to be back soon - that game was fun even shorthanded.
