Wrest Point (Hobart, Tasmania)

Any 2+2 posters from Hobart?

Is it still a couple of tables of 1/2.5 only? Any higher stake games? High rake?

Any current info appreciated.

Re: Wrest Point, Hobart, Australia

Poker runs only Wed, Thu, Fri and Sat nights. Lucky if there is more than one table on Wed and Thurs. it's only 1/2.50. No high stakes games.

The rake is absolutely absurd. Uncapped $2.50 for every $50 or part thereof. So if there's a $1000 pot you're paying $50 rake. On a $55 dollar pot you're paying $5! The rake severely effects the player pool. Recently the casino had a proposal to reduce the rake knocked back by the government.

Bottom line, it's OK for a bit of social fun but you're better off at any other Australian casino.

Thanks Rebel, I'll keep your advice in mind. At those commission rates I may not even bother turning up.

Re: Wrest Point (Hobart, Tasmania)

This info is a year out of date so double check but I was there this time last year and they had games Wednesday through Saturday. Weirdly Wed/Thur the game was 6pm-2am, and Fri/Sat was 8pm-4am and they were very strict about the start and end times.

You could call the casino and put your name down to reserve a seat which was held for you until the start time. Other players would just show up and get on the the wait list. I probably played 8 times over 3 weeks and their was always a game, and it always started on time.

Games were 1/3 and I don't remember the rake but I remember it being really good, much better then Melb/Syd. Everyone was really friendly and knew each other. Games were soft but pretty nitty with not a lot of money going around (but I only play in Asia so it might be relative). Still had a good time and would definitely play their again.

Cheers mate. I might take a little look during Aussie Millions. Melbourne is chaos towards the end on Jan. Plenty of cheap flights around into Hobart.

Re: Wrest Point (Hobart, Tasmania)

Info is a few months out of date.

Games are generally 1/3 and only two tables run. The first table starts at 6.30pm on Wed/Thu and 8.30pm on Fri/Sat. The second table starts when it gets enough players. The first table is generally full of regs and is not a profitable table by Australian standards, with a mix of Eastern European mature nits and some competent white regs. The second table attracts the more recreational players and tourists and is by far the best table to play - if you can get on it. Sometimes the first table will elect to play 2/5 by negotiation.

That's odd Solomon- early start quiet nights and late start on busy nights? Tassie logic!
