makes sense guys. Was wondering when the > 50% rule would come in?

Player bets 500, next player puts 800 in, because it is more than 50% of 500 on top, they are forced to min raise to 1000

If it is the same denomination chip i.e. 2 x 5000 If you take either chip out and it doesn't cover the call (5100) then it is a call. Different denomination chips as Cotter1 says is a raise as taking the 100 out in that example still covers the 200 call with the 500 chip. Simplez Smiley

As a former dealer can promise you that big stacks are no problem to cut down in a matter of seconds, but changing chips up is ridiculous.


From experience you are correct here if the dealer is competent enough. The problem of delaying action imo isn't really with the dealer, it is with the knob player who has shed loads of chips in various denominations and wants to bet 700 in 25's and needs to count them themselves after a dwell up. Or even worse the chip hoarder who insists on collecting all the lowest denom chips ( i.e. bet is 325 and hoarder puts 400 in 100's to collect change) making the amount of low denom chips at the table irrelevant as players/dealers have to keep changing up with them.

I also use a must move system, but slightly different. I ask them in list order who would like to move to the other table, then if none of them want to move I make the person last on the list the person who must move. Just seems fairer that the person who is most probably the least involved in that game is the person who hasn't been there the longest? Also if no-one has left the main game for 2 hours whilst there is a feeder. The feeder becomes a game in it's own right, if people still want to move then the list is re-activated to balance tables.

That sounds too sensible to actually be sensible...

Are you still at Gentings Derby? How are the games there on a Friday/Saturday these days? I'm staying in Derby this weekend and a visit seems possible

Yes sir still in Derby squire, Cash games are running a lot better than expected at the moment, during the week we haven't had a day without a DC and 50/1 NLHE.
Ironically at the weekend we cannot use a must move system due to the turn around of recreational players and the fact the cash tables aren't in the cardroom. But if you are coming this weekend on Saturday we have a poker forum booked for the cardroom so there hopefully will be plenty of additional action, and the cash tables will be located in the cardroom. Hope to see you there, say hello.

This is tricky, he has acted with the incorrect amount of cards ... So technically his hand is dead. However it is of no hardship just to give him the next card as it is his and everything is correct. Common sense lets them complete the hand, then you can smash the cocky twats teeth in Smiley

Not sure of the status, but Raf advertised cash games starting at 12pm tonight. If it is anything like Derby's opening we were closed till 12pm to the public but then anyone could come in, all the ticket holders and Vips were for early evening. Add Raf White on facebook and ask him he is usually spot on with social media Smiley

On another point, and one close to my heart, the poker players lack an established trade body/association etc to lobby effectively other stakeholders in live and online poker such as organisers, sponsors, regulators etc.



Whatever happened to APAT btw

As has been said in the thread, it is up to the loser of the hand to offer a handshake, not the winner. It is the loser's moment, his opportunity for a final gesture at the table - whether handshake, comment, or leaving quietly in silence. The winner should melt into the background, quietly stacking his spoils of victory - this is not his time.

Exactly this, I would much rather shake the hand of someone that beat me, outdrew me, sucked out on me with his one outer than the twat that rants and raves about how lucky my opponent was. The day I can't lose gracefully will be my last game.
I remember very clearly a heavy cash game when speech play was frowned upon, a gentleman clearly lost very much more than he could afford, the game lasted well over 48 hours, with a few trips to the bank calmly whispering to me 'Could you lock my seat up for 10 minutes please'. About the 5th time and around £35k later he came back and stated that he was done, went around the table and offered his hand to everyone and with a smile said he enjoyed the game. One very well known British player was losing about £2k and was being vocal to me and the other dealer, refused to shake his hand.
From a dealers prospective there was one prick at the table.
You can't buy class.

To be fair, the person running Star City is just temporary at the moment, I guarantee things will improve within the month!
Is that a subtle I'm off to Star City post.

Nope, but I know a man that is Smiley
