No, you have to offer what the customer wants. There are a lot of -EV games elsewhere in the casino such as Let it Ride, but the house doesn't worry about busting those gamblers.

Default Re: If you ran the poker room...

If I ran a card room I would:

* spread any & all games that I had players for
* free drinks
* no time seats. $4 rake max
* hire good staff
* have a mini buffett of snacks & such in the poker room free of charge
* have a BBJ
* offer tourneys of all buy in levels depending on demand

What is the house edge on Let it Ride? The edge a good NL player has over a fish is huge.

Why do people assume that if they are running a card room they can dictate what games people will play?

In Missouri, its my understanding that the casino has to be licensed for a particular game and my regular room chose only to get a Hold'em license.

If I ran a poker room I'd bump up the rake to 7 or 8 dollars a hand an have a bunch more promotions targeted at weak, gambly players. Something like win a hand with 72 get $50. Try and cycle as much money as possible from winning players to losing players. I would run a poker room that I as a winning player would hate to play at. Good business and keeping winning players happy are often at odds with each other.

This is a terribly interesting mentality.

I've always considered myself the 2nd best kind of player a poker room could have: a player who plays a ton and wins. The best kind of player a poker room could have is a player who plays a ton, plays horribly, and never runs out of money.

The only reason I consider myself 2nd best is because without losing players, it's impossible to get most winning players. You won't find me at a table full of decent/good players for very long.

The kind of room described above would probably be the kind of room I would like to play in. That mentality is fish 1st. If the lake is well stocked and maintained, the dedicated fisherman is willing to pay a premium to cast his net there.

It is based on bad logic. That because good players seek out good rakes, that bad players will flock to high rakes.

A smart player would flock to a place with more fish and juicier games if he knew what was truly good for him.
