I'm not sure but the cash games are ridic soft there. The championship commenced on Sunday 14 January with the final table held on Friday 19 January If it's as busy as people say, why do they need to charge all these ridiculous fees and shit? Looking to play a little bit of live but need somewhere where the rake won't kill me. The joys of monopolies. Post your Pppoker club info here: Posting multiple threads a day in excessive use.
Are there plans to award another car this year? Have satellites been running at Crown or other venues? Will there be online satellites? Yes there will be online satellites , and in-room numbers are ahead of this time last year. What are the top five must-know things for players planning to attend the Aussie Millions? All the usual pros that love Melbourne.
The APPT has revolutionized tournament poker in both Asia and the South Pacific by introducing tournament poker to Macau, along with hosting the first televised poker tournament in Asia. This is an agreement that has been many months in the making. Senior Management have been in constant negotiations to orchestrate the terms of this agreement, and it is a credit to all involved to finally see it come to fruition.
The structure of the Main Event is slightly different from that of most other major tournaments. While most major Hold 'em tournaments, including the World Series of Poker Main Event , play at nine-handed tables throughout, the Aussie Millions Main Event begins with eight-handed tables.
Play continues eight-handed until the field is reduced to 36 players, at which point all tables are six-handed. The Aussie Millions Main Event structure will see Day 1 divided into three flights, with blind levels of 90 minutes' duration. From Day 2 until the completion of the tournament, the blind levels are minutes long. The Aussie Millions is also known for its high roller tournaments, which have featured some of the highest buy-ins in history. It has a particularly unusual structure: Eighteen entered the Challenge in , 25 in ,  and 24 in It was originally scheduled to be a heads-up no-limit event, but the organisers changed the format twice, settling on what they thought would be a single-table no-limit hold 'em tournament.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. That is inflated, surely. A busy school term happened. I don't really have the time to commit to poker right now, so I don't play or post here as much as I used to. Had a go at the new structure this year and it was shit. Field is still soft as but the new structure makes it harder to exploit. Table charge makes it harder to table hop when your table dies as well. When did you ever really need more than 10 seconds?
This sounds like a sweet table where I don't have to watch mr. The joys of monopolies. For any degens out there, you'll be pleased knowing that on blackjack in the poker room, if dealer gets 22 its a push. It still spins me out that they can legally use the word "Blackjack" to describe the game. Yeah they call it 'Blackjack Plus'. Because of the word 'plus', I'm guessing some degens might even think that it's a positive rule change for the player.
Does it hitting a bj pay 6: If we lose online poker, then poker in Australia is finished. Not only is Crown's rake absolutely ridiculous, but the whole place is horrid. From the vicious bouncers, to the horrible degenerates lurking in the foyer after 8PM, to the appalling amateur dealers. Poker- with the exclusion of underground games of course and the unbearable Pub Poker poker will quite simply die here. Wow our casinos in South Africa suddenly sound so much better Staff is always very pleasant and professional.
The higher up you go the more serious the players, and serious players aren't going to pay ridiculous rake, they'll just find other avenues for playing. They're probably raking more dollars off of the bigger games despite the lower cap. I see your point, but they cash in when drunks go all in. It depends how many hands you play, it's more expensive if you win 2 hands an hour. If you play a lot of hands it's cheaper, but the high stakes is extortionate, 7 grand to play for 24 hours.
Nearest casino as the crow flys is in a place called Launceston, km mi away. For those of you with no idea of Australian geography. Nearest casino by road would be Canberra, only a lazy km or mi If you were really really really really dedicated, you could almost make a day trip out of it to avoid Crown's rake. Again for those of you with no idea of Australian geography. It is also worth noting that while I have never been to either Launceston or Canberra, although I can't imagine either venue having any more than a handful of tables.
Closest casino beyond that would be in Sydney another couple of hours drive beyond Canberra. These groups run free and cash events. Im in the eastern suburbs near Camberwell, have easy access to the CBD and surrounding areas
