Happy to hear you had a great time. As I've said before, I really enjoy going over to Adelaide. Good chance I'll head over again in February (unless I go to the US).- In adelaide all the chips were bought from the cage before you started, which is different from Perth, where all chips are bought at the table. That made the game a bit faster which was good.
- They have a betting line. Perth needs this asap, especially to stop those that call out of turn, or absent mindedly put in $3 or $10 without realising a raise has happened.
Overall, a pretty awesome trip, but I wish I had have stayed longer and bought more chocolate from Haighs obv...
In Perth the first BI is at the table, as are the others, and when you leave, the dealer colours you up which is a bit of a pain. In perth also, the rake goes in the draw, so the chips theoretically stay on the table but the draw will usually overload at the end of the day so people take full racks to the cashier, and during the game need fills as people take full stacks away from the table.Happy to hear you had a great time.

With regards to the rules, I think the biggest difference between casinos is where you get your first buy-in, where you get additional buy-ins, and if a miracle happens, where you cash-in. I kind of like the Crown system. First buy-in at the cage, subsequent buy-ins at the table or from a chip-runner, cash in at the same cage as before. However, Sydney's rake system wins. They do not have a rake box, the rake and time charges go in the dealer tray, so you usually don't have to worry about running out of 1s or 5s.
And ash, you should have played 1/2 PLO. Crazy game. Can't get it up at Crown, but it's a staple in Adelaide.
Last time I was at the Canberra casino (12 months ago) they were lucky to have a blackjack table running. That Casino has to be the worst in Australia. Its about as big as the Welcome Stranger in Bourke Street and from memory they had 1 roulette table and one blackjack.Anyone know if Canberra Casino has a active poker room on weekends?
