Re: Rivers Casino (Schenectady, NY) Hype Thread

Wow OK I apologize, I didn't see the room's manager post here. When I posted above, it was on a mobile device and it looked like this was a very short thread, like only 3 posts and the last post was Carl's according to what I saw on my device. So my post 1 day after River's official post was very unnecessary!

Re: Rivers Casino (Schenectady, NY) Hype Thread

I'm a Turning Stone reg who lives 1.5 hrs from TS but only 25 mins from Rivers and I am very excited for February 8th! And I can tell you that a huge chunk of the regs at TS are local to our area. Everyone I've been talking to are expecting the room to be very successful. Bruce, love the buy in structures. Now I have to ask the million dollar question. What will the rake structure be?

Bruce I think you're going to be needing more tables! Any idea where tourneys will be played? Is there room to add on? I imagine 400-700 runners for any $500 200k GTD minimum if you ran something like that.

I believe the mods will just remove the "hype thread" in the title and leave it here, since the thread is already located where it belongs.

Looking forward to the opening!

Rake will be taken at larger incremental spreads on higher games. The High Hand Jackpot dollar will be taken @ $15 - pending NYSGC approval.

Thanks for the heads up on the thread! We will have Bravo. Should be nailing down the hourly comp rate any day now.

Hi Carl, to answer your first question we do have an event center for larger circuit series. We will have our Rush Street brand PNIA series only.

Thanks. But will you be running your own series throughout the year right? Like 100k GTDs or other stuff right?

Bruce,

The poker room looks great.

The photos of the poker room show 10 player tables. I thought it was going to be 9?

Any news on the comp points yet?

Will you be matching other casinos comp card levels? I have a gold card at Foxwoods and was hoping I could get an upgraded card when I sign up at the Rivers.

I look forward to seeing everyone there on Tuesday.

I meant that I look forward to seeing everyone on Wed.

I can't see any button to click to edit my post. What am I missing here?

Also, is there any info posted on the blackjack rules and number of decks being used?

Thanks in advance.
