I think this could easily add $5 an hour to any competent player. Problem is, choctaw rarely has good 2/5 games.

Anyway, I'm posting this here because it would awesome if we could somehow convince winstar to do this as well. Or at least, no flop no rake as I doubt they'll ever change grabbing the "jackpot" dollar before the cards are even dealt.

I'm not even sure the exact policy right now on a situation like above? Dealer-guy? If it goes $20, $70, all-in $300, and everyone else folds is it $5 rake?

Dealer-guy, is there a greater than 0% chance of ever getting something like this changed?
It's 5+1. So 6$ is raked from your pot never to return to the Winstar felt. If Winstar quit raking preflop I would come back and resume my ~40 hour a week play. Until then winstar will be mising my ~700 a week.

Dude, Winstar 1/2 is full of fish. Almost all fish aside from the occasional nit.

Comon man, get that **** out of here!

I do know that the few times I have played at Winstar, when I lost it was because I beat myself. I have yet to see a good player sitting at the same table with me. They all seem like donks who just love to give money away and it is very painful to watch them stack off with A high to another fish with 77 and here I am sitting here card dead wishing I could get into the action.

I had a set of 444's in a pot where I got in for a min-raise of $4???????? And lost to KKK. Dude hit his set of K on the flop and did not even bet it into 5 players? We all checked and of course I have to hit my 4 on the turn?

HOW do you raise to $4 with KK???????????????????????????????????

Horrible. WTF is the point in even playing poker if you are going to play that badly?

Honestly, I do see those fish stacking off light and just giving away their money. I saw it all weekend long. But, ironically, they will not do it against me or more importantly, I never ever seem to have any type of hand worth playing when all of this super donkey crushing style of play is going on. I guess I play too tight so no one wants to tango with me unless they have the nuts. That puts a smile on my face knowing they actually try to play good against me because my table image is that of a good player.

Once and for all, I do apologize for the way I have posted negatively in this thread. It was just due to my frustrations of hundreds of dollars flying around the table with K7 when they hit top pair and Im over here with J2 offsuit and can't hit a flop.

I will now shut up and work on my game.

p.s. I also discovered that if you play on certain days then it is only grinders and other certain days there are many, many fish.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Also guys...please don't mistake 'running good' and 'catching cards' for thinking Winstar is full of fish. Just because every other pocket pair you play seems to hit a set does not meant that the guy you have tagged as a fish is actually a fish when he stacks off with top 2 pair with AK or AQ.

Oh ok. So I need to instead buy-in for $200, and then spew off $150 of it just to make everyone think I am a fish, and then switch gears and play good and double up the $50 that I have left to $100? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Does anyone know exactly how much the rake is? I know they drop $1 from the get-go but after that how much is it?

For example: if I bet $10 preflop and get 1 caller, and then c-bet and villain folds, how much rake do they take out of that pot?

Or if 2 stacks of $100 are all in how much rake would be taken?

I will do whatever I choose to do and I will ask any and all questions that I desire. I won't get stacked. I am a professional folder and I will continue to fold for hours which will frustate the heck out of you and then BAM I will stack ya when you overplay your draw or medium pair.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

In yalls opionion which casino is better for 1/2 poker Winstar or Choctaw?

And can somebody explain the rake rule to a newbie who has never played live? I have been pretty profitable playing online and want to try live.

How much of the blinds is taken in rake?

Winstar for sure! 1/2 tables full of fish! Best time to go Friday night and afternoon on Saturday always pretty good.

At winstar they always take the SB preflop and I believe the max rake is 5$ if the pot is over 50$. I think that's how rake works at winstar. If I remember right on what they told me.

Actually choctaws 1/2 games are easier. Winstar has more table to choose from but Choctaw games are easier
