Re: PARX Poker Thread

Probably not - I suspect that this is in place to stop abuse. If you're hopping around a lot, it does disrupt the flow of getting players seated in an already overcrowded room.

I think "common sense" will prevail around this policy.

Let's not go off on a rant about our "god given right to play at the table we choose"

Spirit of the law, not letter of the law should prevail.

This sucks. I feel partly responsible because in any given 6-1 hr 2/5 session I change tables 3-4 times.
If you wish to change do you go to desk or do you grab a floor person?

I heard the boxes are for the 30/60 game. Guess that's why that don't need any!

I think I speak for most of the members here when I say you are pretty pathetic. I almost feel bad for you because it is so so easy to see how insignificant and unimportant you really feel in life.

I'd again just like to thank Ari and Parx for being so responsive to their customers concerns and suggestions. That truly shows how great of a room this is and how lucky we all are to have them so close! Keep up the awesome work guys!

Pretty solidly, and seemed to be daily since last week. If not daily it surely will be once there are more tables to house it on.

Oh well I'm glad to see the authority on twoplustwo for life value finally chimed in! I've been waiting for you to notice me.

I state my points on here just like everyone else. I would what I have to say didn't mean so much to you and a few others. I guess my posts hit a soft spot with a few of you guys, sorry if I offend anyone. I hoped that when I posted on here my words wouldn't be so scrutinized and taken so serious. None the less, I stand by all my points I made.

Hi Ari,

Just had an inquiry about how the text notification system came into existence and how it is supposed to work? Is it through the bravo system or just texts sent from people st the podium? Lastly, will text messaging Estes apply to use the system?

They do it from inside bravo, and it seems normal text messaging rates apply, as they asked if I had unlimited text before signing me up.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

I was just wondering what the normal buy in is at the 8/16 game..... sick of playing nl and sick of playing the 4/8 game as well.... time to move up in stakes so I can have more than that $300 dollars someone said to put into my box.

$400 25 big bets is standard.

Yes - that is about right. However, depending on the texture of the game at the time, you may need to be prepared for a reload.

Sometimes that game plays like 2-4. Mr. Variance is in the house!

Other times, it can be a total rock garden.

Hope for the former

I've noticed that you have a high ratio of clown:intelligence in your limited posting.

Based on the outstanding way this room has been run since it opened - I believe that the boxes will be allocated in the best interest of the players.

Like any casino (read: business) - there will be a mixture of catering to players who provide the most action, along with those players who play in the higher stakes games. Sometimes, they are one in the same, but both are loyal, revenue generating customers.

That is, after all, how you attract and retain players.

Some people my not like it, but that is just good business.
