re: Poker & Florida is officially open for poker.
Just got back from a short session tonight.
I got to the Hollywood HR around 10:30 and got my name on 2/5nl, 5/10nl, 1/2 plo, 2/5,plo, 5/10plo, 10/20 limit and 20/40 limit. They starting calling the higher limit games at about 11:15 and had people in the seats before midnight came. The big game at the time was 10/25 and a 10/20plo (not positive on the plo, i heard them call the players). I got seated at 2/5 first. It was mostly regulars so I left when called and got on a brand new 5/10 at about 12:30. Just kinda played until it started to die.
I need to give the HR credit, they handled tonight pretty well. It was very packed around midnight but they got people to their seats and were offering games to a lot of different needs. I had one issue at the first 2/5 I sat down at where the dealer was letting people by in from her bank and then getting fills. A few of us talked to the floor and they agreed that the initial buy ins should be from the house cage. When they opened the 5/10 the initial buy ins were forced to come from the cage. Not sure if our convo with the floor had any effect, I have a feeling its a dealer thing.
As far as the bigger games go the 10/20 and 10/25nl were both going and had huge lists. There was a 20/40 limit game that looked super soft. There was a 10/25 must move at first, not sure how long it lasted. I saw a few people trying to get a 40/80limit and 25/50nl but I'm not sure if they ever went, just heard the names called. There was also a decent list for 20/40 stud, and 75/150limit that didn't get started.
All in all, decent start. There were very little action from rec players because of the weird time. I only heard them call one 1/3nl game and within a half hour they were calling open seats. Tonight seemed like a feeler for most people at the new limits, and it was mostly regulars. I'm sure Friday and Saturday will be when the real madness will start.
