Mount Airy Casino Review
Mount Airy Casino opened it's table gaming today, including it's poker room.
The room is small, about 10 - 12 tables. 8 of the tables were 1/2 NL which I played.
THe poker room is very close to the entrance, so no long walks.
The competition gets a 1/10. THese people were so atrociously bad, I've never seen more min raises preflop in my life, followed by a min bet on the flop. Very easy to push off hands, it was a good day for me. Unfortunately I had to leave after 5 hours of play, but ended up winning $230.
The dealers get a 2/10. Aside from the 2 dealers who were able to handle the game at a respectable speed, everyone else was horrible. I really was not pleased with playing 15 hands in 3 dealer shifts (1.5 hrs) The floor was called to my table about 100 times. Each dealer had to count the rack in front of them which seemed to be a daunting task for most. I don't know if this is the norm in other casinos
as I've never noticed a dealer counting it before they sat down to deal their shift, but these guys made a project out of it. NOt to mention the amount of misdeals and flipped cards, it was definitely amateur hour today. I can understand it's most of these people's first time dealing poker, but they choked hard. I was in vegas last week and to come and play to this was very difficult, I felt like getting up and leaving after about an hour.
Chips are paulson's and they are nice so they get a 10/10. The only problem is having close to $500 in whites on the table, in a normal 1/2 game there are maybe $80 in white's in play. THis slowed the game down horribly.
Room gets a 3/10. THe tables and chairs are comfortable, but not much space to walk through tables. Also they have one cashier window, so cashing out or buying in could take a while.
All in all, Mount Airy has kinda let me down in most parts of this. I've been excited about this for months as it's only an hour away, as opposed to Atlantic CIty being 2 hours. But I think the extra hour drive may be worth it, however Mount Airy is full of fishies, which will probably keep me coming back twice a week as I'm only working weekends right now.
Overall score 2/10.
