It has nothing to do with it being offered, but having people who want to play it. If you get together enough folks to play they will spread it for you.

Side note: any game that isn't hold'em is going to be generally a higher starting stake. I saw you say you lost a bunch of your bank roll so that may be an issue. The 6/12 OE at Parx runs all the time, after that the only games that regularly run with stud and its variants are at 30/60.

You can check this to see what generally over the last two weeks has ran at Parx.
http://parx.phil.ly/

You can look here for the Borgata.
http://www.theborgata.com/poker_live_data.cfm

As you will see though the stud games are spotty, and I may be wrong but the stud game at Borgata is usually 75/150? And the triple draw is usually only part of nosebleed games right?

The Taj or (Harrahs Chester as posted above, though they have no live game report outside of the Bravo Poker app) will likely be your only option for mid limit stud

Anybody do the bus from NYC to Parx on a Saturday? Do they definitely run on Saturdays? I just called the number on the bus schedule and the person who picked up didn't speak English.

No, it's that you don't speak Cantonese.

But yeah, they're back up and running again, from all 3 boroughs.

Ari:

Here is some advise.

Please don't ever let the floor use the excuse, we don't have any dealers. I went to play 15/30 a few weeks ago and there was 12 people on the list waiting and they did not have a dealer. The floor just stand there and stares at you. WTH? Why cant the floor pitch in and deal for a little bit? That is like the worst excuse ever.

Please make sure the dealers and the floor know the deal with how to use the comps for food. I was there this sunday and no one knew where or how to use the comps.

Thanks man! Other than that, everything is great!!!

$10 straddle makes the game a little ridic imo. What is the bi for the game right now? 200-500?

200-500 the straddle was put on 1 time per orbit by the 6 seat. Noone else wanted to. The straddle makes the game huge .

That's what I figured, but, to be honest, I've never been to a circuit event before. I know there's a lot of action but didn't know how much PLO action there is. Anyway, enough of a derail, I'll most likely see some of you tonight.
