Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

So I walk into my local San Diego card room last night and after being there like 30 minutes someone mentions that one of the other tables is running a NLHE game with $25/$50 blinds and $200 antes. $200 ANTES?!?! That is higher stakes than any of the usual games there. This place, Palomar Casino, is literally a hole in the wall in the ghetto with 9 tables....most of which spread 300NL games. So, I finally look over at that table to see what the deal is and there is Tony Esfandiari playing. Awhile later, I notice there is another table that is running $25/$50 Pot Limit Omaha with Phil Laak playing in it. I guess they actually shot a commercial for Palomar earlier that day.

Must be a button ante. Instead of everyone at the table putting in $20 each and every hand and having to deal with piles of small chips, people forgetting, etc., they just make the button put in a single $200 ante.

I don't think so. I asked a couple of different dealers who had rotated through. I believe everyone was putting in $200 per hand. One of the new dealers there had moved out from Vegas and worked as a dealer at Bellagio. She said that type of game actually got spread quite regularly. The interesting thing is that in a game of that structure the blinds don't even matter other than for the house to get its cut since it doesn't even affect bet sizing really due to the antes.

I also got the impression that Tony really didn't want to miss a hand as I saw him practical sprint to and from the bathroom a couple of times. A forced $200 ante would be a good reason for that.....or a serious bladder infection.

Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

Holy crap, that's a huge game.

Yeah, the blinds are totally meaningless. Is there some rule in SD about maximum limits they spread? Like if there's nothing higher than 25-50 allowed by law or by rule, this would be a way to get around it.

That's the equivalent of like, what, 750/1500? 600/1200? A "sandard" size stack in the game would be around $150000.

Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

I remember reading an article about when he was coming up through the games in the Bay Area. I don't recall too many details from the article, except that when he was on the way to the card room for a session, he'd stop at Whole Foods and drop like $200 or organic produce for his lunch. His attitude being, hey, if you've got $20k on the table in front of you you don't want to be worrying about lunch. Heh.

Re: *****Official February "greatest place on the interwebs" Chat Thread!*****

If you haven't checked 24 from atleast season 3 it just ain't worth it

You are just missing way to much vital information about jack bauer (and everybody) imo

its amazing how deep the writers go,
season 1 and 2 comes together in season 3,
season 1 till 6 comes together into season 7

They must stop at season 8, I think
