What demographics are you dealing with (no pun intended)? Is the poker room going to be in a Belagio/Vegas setting or the backroom of a bar in some obscure mountain town in Columbia?
If you've been working on a biz plan for 2 weeks now, you're 'asking' how many hands per hour. Have you ever played live games? How do you expect to RUN a poker room with -0- live experience? People that want to do this usually understand they are best setting up a 'home game' ... or is that what you are already planning ... ??
yes Im referring to NLHE tables. There's no "no flop/no drop". Casinos
here usually get 10% from every pot in a hand. First kind of table is a NLHE table with 0.50c/1USD blinds, minimum buy is 30 dollars, maximum buy is 100 dollars. 10 players max.
The second kind of table is blinds 2.5USD/5USD, NLHE, minimum buy is 150 usd, maximum buy is 400 USD. 10 players max.
Its not in a casino. Im renting a 150 square meters room and Im putting 4 tables in there to start. There is already 1 more of this business model here, they are making money like hell. And there is a lot of unattended demand still.
So you practically rent a place and start hosting NLHE tables and tourneys in 3-4 tables. Poker only. Its not a casino, its a card room, where you can eat good food, play poker, and even play satellites to bigger and bigger tourneys.
Yes Ive played live games. Yes I have a lot of live experience. I just want second opinions.
Thanks a lot.
