Thanks. Someone also said frankford stop and then a bus. Hopefully this route runs on a Friday morning. Thanks again.

Depends on the game, if you are asking about 1/2 NL it is 24 hours a day.

What kind of question is that? 1/2 goes around the clock. What game are you trying to play?

Its the kind from someone who has never been there. Plo or 2/5 would be ideal.

Okay I was confused as to why you asked twice. 2/5 will probably run through from the night before on a Friday. PLO goes often but no set time. Check the Bravo for when a list starts to form.

I heard that within the next week Parx will be getting approval to spread many of the usual mix games: triple draw, badugi, etc. Don't have a complete list at hand, sadly.

that's cool, help them cater to the bigger players. No one will touch those games at lower than 40/80. Sucks as they are a lot of fun to play.


Any concrete word on when the move is supposed to take place? It will be a big boost to the room. Room's always better when people can walk in and gamboool without having to walk through 2 zip codes to find the poker room.

Yeah, 6/12 (and 10/20) OE game(s) are pretty solid. Can't see any mix games going.

They'll have razz, triple draw, badugi, big O, baduci, badacey, razzdacey, and razzdugi.

I believe the last four will be split pot games with the first three.

People would play big O i'm sure. It's kind of silly in limit format, but plo big O is a good game.

maybe if several customers politely demanded them, they would. I may be there on wednesday afternoon, and if they're ready to spread I'm ready to play!

I would gladly play any low level mix, razz, or triple draw.

I'm sure they won't want to kill off the 6/12 OE, but seems like 10/20 OE has started to run more often lately. So maybe 6/12 could morph to HORSE?

Is there a softer 2/5 NL game in the world than at Parx?

Sands is also good, but the $1K buy in and the wanna be hyper aggros make Parx much juiceier.

Personally I'd love to see this, but it's not gonna happen.
That game is solid & popular, and the regs don't wanna change anything.

IMHO, the best way to get a HORSE (or any non-OE) game spread is @ 4/8 or 8/16. Neither would interfere with the 6/12 or 10/20 OE games.
My guess is that 4/8 would attract more people at first.

ok, so when they're finally willing to spread razz, are you up for organizing a 4/8 HORSE game? I'd be into it, and would try to drum up other interest!

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

Why not just play a game that doesn't interfere with the OE game at all. Like straight Badugi, or 2-7, or some kind of badugi/razz/2-7/baduci/razzduci/whatever mix. I'll play if it's in the 8/16 to 15/30 range.

Also, I was told yesterday that it would be another month because the PA gaming board is being lame.

Lots. If you check the parx website there's a list of hotels that will give you a special rate if you have a parx card.
