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

Well it all worked out. Got onto a 1/2 table at 1 and a nice little hit-n-run after an hour. Awesome table. Idiot central.

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

Will just say I came here for the first time the other day and was considerably put off by how nit/regfested it was. Everyone knew each other and there was a lot of strat talk and regs showing cards to each other during the middle of hands. I played both the NL and PLO games and will definitely not be coming back.

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

We should play $5/$5 NLH (time), like they play on "Live at the Bike." That game always has great action and plays much looser. Ask Parx to offer 5/5 No Limit Hold'em.

The Live at the Bike Game is like that because of the $5 antes. It has nothing to do with the $5 small blind.

How is the air quality in the Parx Poker Room? Is this room completely separate from the casino like Borgata's, or is it situated in the middle of the smoke-filled casino floor? Thanks very much

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

Is the 2/2 PLO true 2/2, or is it a $5 bring-in with open raises to $15 pre?

Spot on. Every hand people were showing cards to neighbors, both after folding and while still in hands.

If you play at night it doesn't happen too often
