looked well run and clean.
Legalize all forms of poker and the wacky-tobaccky I say. Law enforcement agencies have enough to do, and our prisons have better criminals to house.
I'll bet the guy who had the pocket K's on the table was bummed when they made the bust.
I didn't read your quote but saw it when I was about to post this....that guy must have been pissed!!! Talk about a bad beat. They look like blue chips.
Player: "I lost my Kings to a Raid"
Listener: "A raise of how much?"
Player: "No, I lost to a RAID".
Yeah I was just going to say they look like Nexgens. Check out the beginning of the video. The red table looks ridiculously long. I wonder who deals at these places, prod dealers or people who run the clubs?
By the way the poker rooms look sweet, for a non-official poker room. Wouldn't mind getting my hands on some of the gear if the police seize and auction it off.
I bet the buyers of the auction are people who want to start their own underground card club. The vicious cycle goes on and on.
I was just reading about lead in chips and seen a bag of chips on the table. How much lead did that guy ingest.
Well I can now sleep at night knowing that these stone cold criminals anre behind bars where they belong.
The video shows a poker room that looks around average for this area. I'm surprised there weren't more plasma/lcd's on the wall. As sporting events and the associated activities are also very popular. Though I don't really follow sports, the conversations about the score and the over/under seem to come up quite often.
Some of the best dealers work for the private rooms. It's worth their time. During one recent 5/10/20NL session, the winning player was throwing the dealer anywhere from 1 to 3 $5 chips almost every hand in which the pot was over $500. And it was an action table. So, yeah the long tables are a good idea and work well if you have good dealers. I hate being packed into small tables.
I have revceived email from a room I go to that they will be closed until further notice.
This is about as stupid as alcohol prohibition was.
These are good rooms, with good people, who just want to play the game and be left alone.
EDIT: and yes, hotstamped nexgens
No players were arrested because gambling laws only apply to those profiting from the gambling business.
Thanks for posting this. I've read a lot about this and it's neat (well, I guess as neat as it can be given the circumstance) to see a video of the rooms. Bummer that it happened though.
It is stll unfortunate, as these rooms are nicer than many so-called casinos (dives) I've been to, and the operators are enthusiasts that are just covering operating expenses
(honorable and good hosts, IMHO).
They are not dens of vice, with loan sharks and mobsters hanging in the wings as the morons in the media are so quick print, to misinform the public.
The players are quite, and well behaved, and do not distrupt the neigborhoods they are in.
However, law is blind, (and therefore, sometimes very foolish).
P.S. It is also why we have to play with nexgens
(who would want a pricey set to be confiscated?)
I don't frequent these joints but it's nice to know that if I did...
