Nothing again today….hopefully with the team matchup changes something will show up next week.
“I was out to vegas for a week during the world series and played in the omaha 8 game with you at the Bellagio. Its a great game and the Bellagio seems like a great place to play but I was wondering what possible reason there would be for the game to be on table 40? The 2nd hand smoke is terrible!!!! When I got home I had a sore throat and was coughing for a week. Dosnt any of the players realize how deadly 2nd hand smoke can be? I cant imagine being a local and playing full time at that table…it would cut at least 5 to 10 years off of your life expectancy!”
Well……you have asked what appears to be an easy and logical question but the answer is pretty complex.
Historically there has always been an omaha 8 game at the bellagio and for most of the time it was 20 40 with a 30 60 kill. The players established as there turf long ago table 40 as the omaha 8 table due to the great view of the screens in the sports book. The game broke down 3 years ago since most of the players couldnt overcome the rake and finally gave it up.
After a 4 month no omaha game the 30 60 game with a 40 80 kill was established and it has been going everyday for 3 years now. With the higher limit the game picked up a more sophisticated player base and the grumbling over table 40 has steadily increased over the years and is reaching its pinnicle now.
There are only 2 players that are holding up the complete transition to a table away from the smoke. Both players are as dysfunctional as they come with the 1st having an extreme narcissistic personality disorder combined with sociopathic tendencies and the 2nd being a complete trouble maker who was kicked out for a few weeks a few months ago but now is back causing trouble.
Now it would seem to be an easy task to get the table moved if only 2 players out of the many insisted on table 40. Not so….the house so far for whatever unknown reason is not very sympathetic to the players request not to be exposed to 2nd hand smoke.
The players have made there plea more then once and it falls back to whoever starts the game chooses the table. Well…guess who is there early to make sure the game is started on table 40….the 2 players! As the Narcissistic player told the floor when asked why 40 since there is smoke there….he replied…well I only play a few hours a day.
So….my guess is many players are going to stop playing if the game is on 40. I am considering it strongly and would in a heartbeat if everyone would stick together.
