Re: Argosy Casino, Lawrenceburg, In Screwed out of my seat, O/8

Paper list or electronic? I got dropped off of a paper waitlist once when the new floor/brush transferred the last shift's list to a new page since one of the game columns was full. When the game...

Meh. I'd want to keep playing, but it sucks being the only holdout to a chop. If you're comfortable with being singled out and having people gun for you, then keep playing - otherwise...

Re: Harrahs in New Orleans, strange rake method.

Search for time charge or time rake. There's a lot of posts about it. At 2/5 I don't think it's detrimental. You will never convince me that HNO didn't implement this policy because the 1/2 NL...

Re: I think rake by the hour sux

I agree with this. A $6/down charge is equal to 24 hands/hour full rake at the $5/hand typical around here. Even at $4/hand is only 30 full rake hands.

1/2 NL generates a lot of less than fully...

Re: Best 2/5 games in Vegas

For limit that's correct. For NL it's $6/down + $1/hand JP. They may not take the JP at 5/10 and 10/25 NL.

I'm not sure $5+1...

Re: Terrible dealer tries to get the action kicked out.

If that was sarcasm, it is unfortunately lost on me. NO dealers may not be great, but they are a significant step up. This is a depressingly frequent topic of conversation in BR.

Re: 1-2 NL Rake

You need to move up to 2/5 to be even against the time charge. $12/hour against a 300 stack is brutal. 2/5 is a little tougher, but the structual advantages greatly overweigh the slight increase in...
