What do I know.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

hey all pretty sure i'm gonna stop at parx on my way back from school tomorrow for the first time

couple questions sorry if they've been asked a ton:
place to stay? i'm thinking the marriot
can I call the room to get my name on the list?
how many 5/10 and 2/5 games usually get going during peak hours on the weekends?
any other useful tidbits while im in the area or like unique poker room rules /protocol whatever?

I'll try to help you with both.

1) You can call ahead to get your name on the list.

2) Usually they have 1 5/10 game running (seen 2 once or twice before) and usually 5 2/5 games running during the weekends.

3) Some 'unique' rules - you need to rebuy chips from a chip runner. Smoking is at the bar (as I'm sure you've seen from the other 834823 posts about it. Waitresses for most part are really hot.

PS. Marriot is a few minutes of walking, so not a bad place.

Kept the poker Q's here; moved the cheesesteak debate to here...

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/92...philly-921844/

...because it obviously deserves its own thread.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Heading over today after work, hopefully we'll get a PLO table going. 1-2 or 2-5 if anyone is up for it. PM me your number if you are interested in PLO at Parx tonight and I'll text you when I get there. If we can get it started before they fill all the tables it should run all night.

Did it ever run last night?

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Just hear the PLO game was a go as of 30 min ago. I'll be getting there around 3 and playing all night, and I know there are some other 2+2ers that will be filtering in through the evening, so if you want to play some PLO this evening, come on down to Parx and sup bro.

They are not going to enclose the bar in glass.

First, That's where the waitresses go to fill drink orders. You really thing they are going to open a big glass door a couple hundred times a night with a drink tray.

Second, I'm sure legally you are only allowed to smoke on the non carpeted area. You put a glass wall up at that edge and its a very, very tight space.

Driving to Parx is more dangerous than the health hazards of second hand smoke at Parx, IMHO.

What do I know.
That would be fine. Yeah it wouldn't be pleasant walking through the smoke to get to the room, but I'd rather have 30 seconds of that than the constant, stale smoke odor that's in the room now, and having to make sure I can get on a table far away from the bar where the smell is the faintest. As I said earlier, I don't feel compelled to go back there unless they rectify this situation. Online playing (when I'm unable to drive to Borgata) is sounding like the best way to go for now.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

I'll be there tonight trying (and failing?) to get 8/16 HOSE or 30/60 LHE going. I should get there early. If you are interested in either game, try to come early and maybe we can start short and lock up a table.

Many casino's have their "service bar" behind doors and the waitstaff navigate them without incident. Look around the next time you're on a casino floor. Follow the waitstaff and see where they go to get their drink orders.

And, of course they could extend the non-carpeted area a few feet to accommodate a wall.

This is a comfort issue and not (entirely) a health issue. Let's not turn this thread into a discussion on the risks of second hand smoke and whether or not it exists, in any form, at Parx.

If last Friday was any indication I wouldn't get there after 3 to lock up a table
