It's pretty much a standard corporate attitude to be absolutely focused on maximizing income - and the time periods measured have gone from multi-year to month-to-month (and less).

This means squeeze every penny *now* out of each customer. Instead of building the long-term relationship and taking significantly more over decades (even if you NPV-adjust, this is probably true).

I personally am not a big fan of the corporate attitude - I got trained to think that way in school, but thank god I didn't go that route...I knew it wasn't for me. I still wish I had Al's eloquence for expressing it.

Somebody knows that if the rake were high enough, say like 20% to $500, no one would ever be able to beat poker and the casino would get all the money. That's the underlying problem with these disneyland corporations, they want ALL their customers money. They're not satisfied with a tidy profit, they want ridiculously enourmous profits.

Nice work, remember those numbers are in thousands, so ya gotta add three zeros at the end. Those net income figures are in hundreds of millions.Bugsy Seigel and Meyer Lansky would be proud.

Not surprising to see a bad article.

[ QUOTE ]
"That people like to touch cards and interact with a dealer seems like a common sense assertion," said [PokerTek CEO] Halligan, who speaks rapidly, with the assertiveness of a young entrepreneur. "But it's false."

[/ QUOTE ]

Really? The manufacturer claims people have no problem. I guess they don't. He must be right. No self interest there.

The statement is just left out there, as if it were undeniable.

No attempt to even contact someone from Cardplayer, Bluff, 2+2, etc.

[/ QUOTE ]

I agree the statement was made as if it were pure fact, which of course it's not. Bullpucky is closer to fact than this ridiculousness.

However, I wouldn't bother going to bluff or cardplayer if facts are what you seek. I tend to promote these publications as useful when your birdcage needs new liner. I'm starting to rethink that however, as it seems quite cruel to the birds.

I for one would never regularly play these electronic casino poker games unless they were the only game offered within a 50 mile radius of my house.
I like live poker with cards and chips and that is what I want when I play live poker.

Can I play multiple machines in my underwear while watching pr0n on the extra screen? If not I fail to see any advantages over my current electronic poker setup.

I saw two of these tables at Commerce, but nobody was playing on them while there were many other tables going. I would think at Commerce with the grinders, these would be a hit due to the increased speed. I think that they are too intimidating to the casual player.

Speaking at last week's Global Gaming Expo, the industry's premier trade show, Bellagio poker room director Doug Dalton called the games "the next future of poker."

Good to know card room managers have mastered the subtleties of logic in grammar.

Why is this debate only happening at poker? Wouldn't electronic craps and bj games also be faster and less error prone etc. resulting in more hands per hour hour and more money for the house?
