Generally, the game goes every day. The length of the list gets longer as time goes by. This is turning into a popular game.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

Went there last night for the first time.

Summary:
More regs than most rooms; the play was pretty tight.
More alcohol and table games needed to feed the games.
Cute young waitresses.
Several dealers needed coaching through basic situations ("does the button move or stay?")
Floor seemed confused, etc. like a busy restaurant in its first week (still finding their flow) looking rushed and making mistakes.
More tables will help the lists quite a bit.
I recognized about 1/3rd of the 2/5NL players and about 2/3 of the 5/10NL players from the Borg.

I'll be back. Room has potential, and it's much closer to me than AC.

You just have to make sure to flop it against the kind of player who will fold AAQx w/s pf because he thinks he can get it in in a better spot somewhere else.

It was very cold in the room. I guess I had to adjust a little since I felt fine in about 5 minutes later. PLO has been pretty soft the 2 times I've played it. On a Tuesday night, there was no raising pre and 9 handed every hand with a bunch of predictable shortstacks. Last night, I would say there were only a couple of decent players with a bunch of mediocre ones.

One thing I've noticed is the lack of profanity/behavior filter. I've heard people curse with reckless abandon with no consequences. Yesterday a tablemate and I decided to curse loudly just to see what would happen, and not a single person said a word. One man was yelling at the top of his lungs several times last week and was slowing up the game considerably and staff did nothing. I guess it is good that they are giving the players plenty of leeway. After all, it is still a casino poker room, not church or something.

Re: PARX Poker Thread

I played there today for a few hours.

I liked the room a lot and believe the room has much potential. The escalator seemed a bit long, it reminded me of the escalator at the Showboat to get up to the old House of Blues room.

I got there at 12:15. The room had lists but, the lists moved pretty swiftly. I got in a game by 12:30.

I recognized several of the players and several of the floor people from various Atlantic City poker rooms.

I found the chairs comfortable. I liked the lighting although some might complain because they would consider the room dingy.

We had good waitress service and the waitresses did not hurt the eyes.

The dealers did well and had no problems the time I played.

I can see myself becoming a regular player in this room.

I could care less, i just think it is funny that the floor and dealers could care less when in AC they are on your ass instantly. Drink service is awful, they kept forgetting my drink each time and they take forever. At least they look good.

The dealer at my table laughed at it. We had a minor ruckus at the table behind us. A player cursed out another player for rivering him. We all just laughed.

Like I said, your in Philly.
