Do you want the best or the cheapest?

The holiday in is in the same parking lot and is your best choice. ~114/night

Sleep in is about a 11 minute walk and is the cheapest @ ~65/night

Thanks probably gonna do the holiday inn. How safe of a walk is it from the other one? Have never been to parx would the wall be thru a decent/busy neighborhood to walk through at let's say 4am?

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

Ok seriously this is a huge problem. Some of the dealers expose my cards and when I ask nicely for them to pitch my cards lower to the felt they don't.

Its absolutely rediculous.

I know for a fact that some of the dealers deal me in what can I do about this?

What I find ridiculous is that you don't notice that squiggly red line under "rediculous"

I also vote for option C

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

What do you mean take off tinfoil hat?

This is a serious issue because I've spent lots of time studying and playing poker, but its impossible to win when your opponent can play perfectly against you.

I don't think calling gaming and asking them to send an agent to watch the dealers is realistic but seriously what in the actual ****, I don't do drugs and I'm not crazy

This is a serious concern of mine

Thinking about taking a friend with me and have him tell me.

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

What we're saying is that you're being paranoid, and probably wrong.

Dealers deal a billion hands in their dealing days. It is rote mechanics to them - they don't even really see the board at all while they are dealing, until they need to read it at showdown. When they are dealing, it is all repetitive motion. They aren't doing anything to you that they aren't doing to every other player at every other table during every other shift of their lives. Or at least the ones in the same seat as you.

Now, perhaps there are one or two who have bad mechanics and are pitching in a way where cards might be visible to other players. I play in the room a lot and have never noticed anyone doing this, but who knows, maybe there are a few. Maybe ask them once to pitch them lower for you, and see what happens, but I'm telling you their muscle memory will take over and they will go back to dealing how they have dealt every hand for the last X years of their dealing career.

At that point, bring it to a floor or a shift manager, and one should come over and watch. If you're right, they'll talk to the dealer privately about it (and possibly write them up). Just don't be surprised if nothing happens, because (IMO and based on my experience) you're likely blowing things way out of proportion and just being paranoid.

Also, I have no idea what "deal me in" is supposed to mean in this context. I presume you mean pitch cards such that you think they are exposed to other players. I don't think "deal me in" means that to anyone else, you might want to stop saying that if you want other people to know what you mean.

Well, since you're pretty much the only poster in 2+2 history with multiple posts about dealers exposing your cards to other players, I'd have to concede that there indeed must be a vast dealer conspiracy against you. Floors will not help since they are also on the payroll. Find an ambitious investigative journalist and crack the case wide open.


Or you can try to play in a way that does not make your hole cards obvious to the rest of the table.

Could it possibly be that maybe you're just not very good at poker despite the time studying?

I'm not saying this to be a dick, but think about it... Either
1) most dealers want you specifically to lose, despite only having interacted with you for short periods of time and apparently for no reason

-or-

2) you're just one of the roughly 80-90% of people who are not winning poker players.

I'll test my friend theory and post here

But in the past someone who was sitting next to me quietly said, "you know I can see your cards right" then i asked him what the second card was that the dealer gave me when I didn't even look at it yet and he got it prefect. 8 of diamonds

Picked up my chips and left next hand lol

I don't do any drugs, if anything I'll very rarely smoke a joint with some friends, sometimes have a casual beer, I'm not paranoid or insane I'm being dead serious, and I'd be EXTREMELY surprised if no one else has ever this issue

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

Usually this kind of thing is due to sloppy dealing procedures as others have said (not a conspiracy against you). A few dealers at casinos deal the cards too high and certain players are good at catching what they are (this is an advantage they shouldn't have, but theoretically anyone would be able to observe the same thing). Your best defense is to ask dealers that pitch the cards too high to keep them lower. If they don't, alert the floor.

while i don't doubt that this has happened to you, i do doubt the frequency which you are leading us to believe it happens. i also stand by my assessment above with #2.

also...

you said this twice:

and not that i care if you do drugs or not, it's just hilarious that you're adamant that you don't do something then literally tell people you do it, regardless of frequency, which makes me question you're whole accusation.

If you are worried about flashed cards WATCH the dealer carefully every hand. If they are making mistakes call the floor.
