My friend tells me Martin Staszko was runner up in the tourney today - any truth there?

I'd actually prefer 6/12 to either 4/8 or 8/16. In the end, I think the 8/16 just doesn't get enough of the casual players wanting to play bigger than 4/8.
Just a hunch, but I think 6/12 would probably get going on a Saturday

It was probably me. I'm pretty sure it was the floorlady Sharon who said this about the lack of difference in stakes and not wanting a conflict. Maybe we should ask Ari himself for a ruling?

The next time I'm at Parx I'll try to set up a list for 6/12 hold'em. If the folks at the signup desk won't do it, I'll try if from one of the two machines near the comp desk.

Would there be any interest in a 6/12 HOE game? Or how about a straight Omaha game somewhere between 4/8 and 8/16?

As was stated by OP when a second (must move ) table gets running it is usually much better then the main game.The reason being it gets some new blood other then the usual suspects.The problem is keeping the game going since it feeds the main game.I generally avoid the main game during the day not because of the quality of play just some people annoy the hell out of me.

Has there ever been SNGs at parx? Is it something that they do or could do there?

That's a case where it's too similar to the 6/12 OE game that it won't get spread.
They have gotten 10/20 OE recently. IMHO, they should dump the stud 8 half from that game and just make it 6/12 half kill O8. The majority of those regs prefer O8 anyway.
Most (if not all) are Taj refugees.

I'd gladly play 8/16 HOE (or HOSE) anytime. I don't think it would conflict with the OE game at all, especially if they switched the OE game to straight O8. It could also get some of the players that want to play 10/20.

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

On a side note...does anyone else find the half kill in the 6/12 OE game a little tedious ?
9/18 with $2 chips just seems to throw the game into gridlock. Not too mention you're not exactly dealing with the quickest of players either. The stud 8 round especially seems to be more confusing to the non-regs. Just an observation...

I completely disagree. The people who don't like stud 8 can go play their 4/8 o8 game that they used to play. 6/12 is a very popular game for reasons I don't even know. The reason it gets multiple tables some days is because people like to play stud, and its the only low stakes stud game offered, granted its stud8.

IMO, Parx should do a better job pushing either 10/20 or 15/30 OE. I believe there is a big enough player pool for these games. For whatever reason, 10/20 is more popular than 15/30, most likely because some 6/12 players are willing to make the jump. The problem with 15/30 is it attracts the limit holdem players who just lock up a seat until their holdem seat is available leaving the game unstable. My solution, only give the must move protection to 10/20 or a higher limit game. Many times 10/20 won't get off because it makes no sense for a person to leave a game that is guarenteed to be full for a game thats going to start short-handed. Very often you have 2-3 6/12 games going with 15 people on the 10/20 list. 4 of theose 15 people are not playing 6/12 and hoping to play bigger. 6 to 8 people are hapilly playing some other game of choice and aren't ready to leave their game yet. Finally, 3 to 5 people are playing 6/12, not leaving because they're unsure if the players locking up seats for the 10/20 game truly wanna play the game, or are on the 6/12 list looking to take their seats as soon as they get up. If that is the case, they just left a full 6/12 game to play a shorthanded 10/20, which is not exactly what they were looking to do. If you take the must move off the 6/12 game, it gives incentive for regs to wanna start 10/20 instead where they will have the protection of a full game. The 6/12 game will never disappear, and the people who make the game enjoyable, don't even care for the must move rule. I personally have no problem playing with the 6/12 regulars, I would just prefer to play with them at 10/20 or higher limits.

I agree with all the stuff about 10/20 O/E or 8/16 mixed being better than the 6/12, which can be tedious. I'm personally not playing much right now, but it would be great if the 10/20 O/E and PLO were always available or at least there was a "regular" night that the games went.

The issue I have, in this room, is the jump all the way up to 15/30, from 4/8. In rooms that have the 2/4, 3/6 spread, they have a 10/20. That is low enough to draw the people that would play a 6/12 or 8/16 and still keep the flop-lotto LL games filled with bottom feeders.

I am not arguing that the 4/8 is not beatable. Although, at $5 rake, I think it makes little sense to play the game for other than entertainment value. Beating the game for $6/hour is not an aspiration of... anyone (I would hope). And, for some of us, playing 4/8 is not really "entertaining".

Hmmmm... after thinking about it for a while, I think this may work...

1. Kill the 4/8 game. Replace it with a white chip 3/6 game. This gives the folks who that think 4/8 is too high already, a game and also gives the 2/4 wanna-be's a better compromise than 4/8. This could actually bring more people in the room.

2. Create a 6/12 game, using the $2 chips. This gives folks who want to play a little higher a game to play. And, it also allows the 3/6 players a place to "move up". This could also bring more people in the room.

The risk is that the 6/12 never goes and the 4/8 is no longer there. From the casino's perspective, that should be revenue neutral, however. As, I suspect that there would be the same number of 3/6 games going as there currently are 4/8.
That makes alot of sense.Maybe someone should talk to Ari about this and get his thoughts.

yup it throws me for a loop, the whole kill in stud is silly. one extra $3 blind? when the omaha has an extra $9? it doesn't seem logical. I know that if you made it blind $9 it might kill a little action but just doesn't add up to me.

Game is 10/10. $500-$3000 buy in. 10/20 runs on occasion capped at $5000. I may know who you are and you may know who I am. PM me if you have any more questions.

$10/20 is uncapped with a $2k min. It was changed when they changed to $10/10.

Pretty good. Seen a lot of Parx and AC faces around.

Tables are hit and miss my second last night was great my first had 6 2p2ers.

There's a 25/25/50 PLO NL with a $100 button straddle and $10k min that's been running that sounds up your alley.

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

Got my head handed to me at the 15/30 game last night. Last hand was for a gazillion bb's. I come in utg+1 for a raise with JJ, and 4 people call including an asian dude who recently came over from the 30/60 game cuz of there being 'no action', and awful older gentleman in the sb, and a younger white guy who apparently teaches philosophy in the bb. Flop is JKx with 2 spades. Old guy opens, Philosophy and I call, asian raises, old guy raises3!, philosophy calls and I cap. All call. Turn is Q of spades. Blinds check, I bet, asian raises, and old dude makes it 90. Fml. Philosophy agonizes and folds. I call, asian calls. River doesn't pair the board. Old guy bets out. I call (idk why) and asian says 'I won't be greedy' and just calls. Old dude has A10 and asian has k-high flush. Lol. I suck.


Can't wait to go back.

I keep hearing about high NLH/PLO games. Wish we could get something going at Parx. Anyone interested?

I would be interested in a NL PLO mix, but nothing even close to those stakes. The $5 single blind game could fit my bankroll, or 1/2 -2/5 for that matter.

I'd play a $2/$5NL $5-0PLO rotation every half. I'd prefer $10/$10NL and $10-0PLO. Let's see if we can get something going with this. All those interested say something in here and PM me.
