Pretty far away, most times when I see people gone for a smoke are gone for at least a few rounds.^ better than Tassie though!
How far is it to go outside for a smoke? Also the poker room in Hobart was kept pretty cold so you needed a jumper, sand there?
Can confirm. $5 does not go into the pot as it used to, will go to rake.2/5 is now 10% $15 cap.
It's also now turbo. Can buy time for $5 up to twice.
Money for time goes into the rake cf the pot.
Which table?Played 1/3 PLO last night from 9-12. Ended up exactly square.
Was one guy going mad and another guy who couldn't miss. First guy probably lost $1500, second guy left with $2k!!
All in all very enjoyable, much better after the guy going mad left. He was doing things like potting on the button pre with Low pockets and not much else!!
$100 is max and I'd suggest that. Any less you're gimping yourself IMO. Already it's only at 50BBs, so not exactly deep.I am keen to dip my toe in.
Suggested buyin with the 1/2 game? Best times to head down for a game?
Yep, this is what I was getting at. 1/3 isn't great either for rake and stack sizes but you might as well play roulette over 1/2.i play the 2/5, 5/5 & 5/10/20 games.
if you have a general understanding of how to play, play 1/3 where you get 100 bigs and aren't going to get destroyed by the crazy rake at 1/2 playing against $20 stacks.
Thank you for this great advice.$100 is max and I'd suggest that. Any less you're gimping yourself IMO. Already it's only at 50BBs, so not exactly deep.
If by best time you mean the softest game, then generally the worst players are around Friday/Sat nights but apart from that at 1/2 the play is not really that high of a level (can be sometimes) so any time that suits is good.
I would have suggested playing in one of the free tournaments they've had going recently for the aussie millions satellites, just to get a feel for live poker without having money on the line but they've stopped now. I think as long as you stay aware of the game/listen to the dealer you'll get the hang of playing live pretty quickly.
I'd suggest signing up for the crown rewards card (it's free). it makes registering to play a lot faster, plus you get free parking. the process to start playing is: you go up to the desk to register and there might be a list, you wait till your name is flashing on the screens (or you get a txt) and then go back to same desk to get a ticket with your table number. when you sit down you give that ticket to the dealer with $5 for seating charge. then unless you come straight into the BB, you can choose to pay BB straight away (while not in the BB position) to start playing or wait a few hands until BB naturally gets around to you and off you go.
