I will also be playing the noon 100+20 tomorrow. I am optimistic about the turnout #. I'll take the over on 90.

Buying in with higher denomination chips is just a convenience. You really don't need more than a few stacks of red chips. Do you have trouble counting stacks when they have a lot of higher denomination chips? As long as they keep them in front, I don't see the problem.

PLO has been up in the air recently. If there is even a consistent day of the week it is probably tues. If you look at the bravo app they give u a few choices of hotels w special Parx rates.

I have never played at Parx but am planning to stop by soon. Are you allowed to listen to an iPod while playing or is there a no electronics rule?

lmao, you can listen to your iPod. Parx is very laid back. It is not the WSOP Final table. Just cover your dick and walk in. The staff will seat you.

I'm going to be in Philly on the weekend of the 7-9th. Will I be more likely to find PLO (Hi) running at Parx or Harrah's? Thanks guys.

You can bring backpacks. They typically just take a quick look inside.

How does this place compare to Harrah's Chester for 2-5 NL?

I see in bravo that the # of games are about the same on a Sun afternoon.
I typically play at Charlestown but am travelling to philly this week on work.

I'm trying to get a sense of mid-week - (Tu/Wed), late-night action at 2-5 NL

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

Hoping to stop by on Wed evening while in town for a night in Philly for work. Driving in from the north, so it looks like Parx is pretty much on the way.

Questions:
- Any recommendations on where to park that would be convenient for the poker room? Will have company laptop so not looking to valet.
- is this place big? Are we talking something that resembles Foxwoods, or something that resembles a strip mall?
- kind of bummed there is no nightly tourney on Wed. Any chance they run sng's or a tourney that is not listed on the Dec calendar?
- approx how many tables of 1/2 and 2/5 are likely to be running?

Thanks in advance.

Poker is in its own building separate from the main casino. Follow signs for Parx East, thats where the poker room is.

There is plenty of parking right in front of Parx East.

The place is big. its a legit casino.

No sng's.

check the bravo app for exact games but wed night should have at least 12-17 1/2 games and a half dozen 2/5NL.

Just moved to NJ and grinding the 1/2 NL at parx. Is there any other regulars here reading this that also play the 1/2 NL game? Also, how is the action like at 4/8 and/or 6/12 omaha hi-low?
