Re: Star City Hotel & Casino (Sydney, Australia)

I don’t actually know as they don’t tell you the reason. But me and the boys think it was the following. We got pretty fun drunk and had been partying with a bit of Charlie Chaplin beforehand in a few pubs . One of the boys had a bit in his pocket. We didn’t even notice until we left several hours later that he didn’t have it on him as we left casino. We think it must’ve fell out of his pocket at the Poker table. Nothing was said that night to us. We were all sitting together also so they probably thought it could of been any of us. I didn’t know until about a week later when my card swiped red and suddenly security and the cops were escorting me out. And then I get letter saying I’m banned for a year. Stupid by us. I’ve apologized to the staff as been going there most days for about 10 years and never had any issues but they said wait 12 months and they will review. Fair enough by them I guess as we were at fault. Don’t do dumb ****!

Man that's pretty rough that they don't even tell you the reason though. At least they didn't call the cops when they found the cocoa I guess..


To everyone else: will the cash game action be better than normal with the WSOP being in town guys and will the wait lists be completely ****ed cause of all the dealers being in use for the tournament?

I was there today and they actually stopped all cash games for an hour and a bit to seat and get the first flight happening..

Star City Hotel & Casino (Sydney, Australia)

So you’re saying that some coke fell out of your friend’s pocket and you got banned for 12 months? And they haven’t given you a reason?

Hmmmm

If they really haven’t given you a reason you should go to the Ombudsman who is based at Star. They are very keen to stay on the right side of the ombudsman because their license depends on it - you will get the reason why you’re banned and the chance to appeal

Btw, you don’t have a 12 month ban. You have a minimum 12 month ban and you will need to reapply for membership afterwards and that isn’t a fait accompli

Star City Hotel & Casino (Sydney, Australia)

In other news - played the $5k yesterday and thought the structure was really ****. Was really turbo-ish starting with 100bb stacks and antes in level 1 and then the antes were really aggressive the entire time. I satellited in and it still amazes me to think there are 200 + people prepares to wager 5k on a poker tournament on an average Weds in December. The tournament poker economy is strong here

Opening Event was similar turbo structure, but you expect that from a $500 event albeit when I busted OE in about 80th, the average stack was 14bb - day 2 of that event is a lottery

Can’t wait for the ME this weekend. Squirty, are you playing on Sat?

Re: Star City Hotel & Casino (Sydney, Australia)

Speaking of turbos - cashed in the turbo. Playing 6max this weekend and can only play flight 4 of the main. Hopefully bust out of that before the cash so I can play the monster

Re: Star City Hotel & Casino (Sydney, Australia)

Flight 4 will be the second softest I’d have thought. I may play it if I don’t get through on Sat.

No way I can play 6 max - I’ve played Fri, Sat, Tues, Weds so far and then will be all day Sat at ME. My wife is already salty !

Re: Star City Hotel &amp;amp; Casino (Sydney, Australia)

Hope to be all day don't you mean ?

Why second softest?

All the pros will play every flight. Most should be through by then

Re: Star City Hotel & Casino (Sydney, Australia)

My pov is that the Sat flight will attract the maximum number of rec players because they work during the week and then the second Fri will attract the rest who want to play a flight directly next to Day 2 and yes, more of the pros will have got through by then. That table you and I sat on last year was pretty incredible for a 2k. Mind you, my 5k table yesterday started out brillIantly too with 3 other decent recs (plus me who I would classify like that), 3 bad whaley recs and only a couple of pros. 6 hours later it was completely different!

‘Hope to be all day’ - if I bust the ME I’ll play cash til bedtime!
