re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

There are a few diners on Street road around the casino. Ask around for suggestions, but all of them are diners and are probably about the same.

Parx's breakfast menu is not bad (most people seem to like the omelet, I'm partial to the breakfast sandwiches) and a decent value, but it's not going to be a nice sit down meal or anything.

These day's 10-20 mix is typically Big O hi-lo (5 card Omaha) and Superstud hi-lo (stud except you get 4 cards face down and discard 2 of them).

I was playing the other day and was gone for 42 minutes. When I came back table seemed shocked I was gone that long and floor was counting my chips about to pick me up. Is that normal?

re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

No, and it's surprising too. Normally players have to whine for a while to get a player picked up, and dealers usually don't put out absent buttons like they're supposed to.

IIRC, the rule is that you get picked up when you get your third absent button - i.e. sometime between 60 and 90 minutes away.

Now that's a great mix. Does it go with any regularity or is it hit or miss?

I am taking a trip to parx sometime between June 26 and August 26. I see the big stax tourny is coming up on July 6. I Dont play tourny but are the cash games any better during that event?

Cheers everyone

re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

Yes, the cash games are more numerous and play bigger during the tourney. Hard to say if the games are necessarily better. You get a lot more tourney players playing cash, and generally more action, but also more decent circuit players compared to the usual rec players.

in general though, it is a much livelier environment. about the only bad thing is the lists can be longer at the busiest times.

The Big Stax in July is just one $200 tournament it looks like. Not a series like the others have been.

Yea, you will get away with it. There are a lot of degens playing for several days in a row with no problems. I would not go more than 4-5 days though!

re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

Hey guys I used to play at Parx a bunch but haven't been there to play cash in quite some time. Just opened the Parx bravo to see there's a 1/3 game running...has this been going on or is it just a random thing tonight? Also does anyone know max/min buy in if this does get off the ground once in a while?

The 1-3 has been going on for awhile now. But usually just the 1 table. I think it's 100-500, but not positive as I haven't played it.

re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

hi,

what is the current status of the 15/30 LHE game here? does the game run all weekend? is it usually full, or shorthanded?

bravo poker live says 1 game going, but no WL, so am wondering if thats a game with 5 TAG regs and 1 fish

also, what is the rake/BBJ?

thanks!

re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

The 15-30 mainly runs during the week M-F, but it has had some legs on weekends too, and usually it's not just the reg crowd when it does run. Having said that, my experience is almost entirely on Sat night, when if it starts at all, the game gets started short sometime after dinner, and eventually might fill up for a few hours before running back down to short until it breaks late night.

It is $6/hh time rake, no BBJ drop (and not eligible for BBJ or promos).

friday/saturday/sunday most of the LHE crowd is in A.C.


tuesday and friday are the best days for it. Saturday is sporadic. Thursday lately is sporadic for it to run all day. if 15 isn't running 40 will be.

Night time is usually a mix of decent players and not so decent players. Day time is usually meh comparatively speaking.
