I'll be there Saturday afternoon and would like to get the game started. I haven't been to Parx too many times yet, so I don't know any of the regulars - I'll just stick myself on the list of interest when I get there.

Yea i think the 3k buyin is going to be a great thing for the game. It is completely official as of this morning.

Can we get a clarification? Structures suck. I would only play ME if they are accurate.
I was told they would all be 30 minutes by the shift manager at night

A few of them have been updated on the site, but the 100/20 tournaments are still 20 min. levels

Does anyone know if they are going to move the poker room into the main casino? That would be basically awesome.

Why? You don't want foot traffic from pit and slot degens? I lose track of how many times blackjack whales have stumbled on to my 5/10 table at Borgata. Would love for that to happen at Parx.

Isn't that going to be a whole new building though (supposedly), with an entertainment center, hotel, shops, and such?
Also rumored to be 100 tables.

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

Was just there this Saturday for a quick daytrip from NYC. Tried to redeem the matchplay coupons and heard a rumor from the cashier at the cage near the roulette tables @ Parx east that they were going to discontinue the $60 match-play coupons for the Chinatown bus. Can anyone confirm/deny this? So far the shorter travel time, and +EV nature of the coupons has tipped the favor of me taking daytrips to Parx vs Borgata/Foxwoods, etc, but if they're going to rescind this, I'd probably start looking elsewhere.

Most of the winning regs, yes. A certain italian who looks like Mike The Situation tries to get away with buying in for more.

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

Should be obvious but just wanted to clarify:

Under this new rolling comp system, do older comps get used up first?

Eg: Say I earned $10 sixty days ago and $10 yesterday. I activate $10 to buy dinner today. Do i have any comps left tomorrow?

Omaha is 30min levels now. Structure is quite good for 15k in chips. Looking forward to it. I hope they get over 120 runners.

It's 10K chips. Think they just upped the levels from 20 --> 30 mins.
