Lots of fun, but easy to lose several buy in's pretty quick.
This is the action in all of California still, but a little less so than it was before. You'll the same thing in most other markets too, Vegas is generally a poor place to play outside of key weekends when big events are going on or during the first half of WSOP. Rest of the time its almost certain other markets have more action on an average night. The better Vegas players are all about just waiting for the drunk or the rich player who doesn't care, trying to isolate them and take their money. If one of those players isn't around the games can be pathetic.

As most expert level players know the higher the rake, the better the action in most cases. A game with high rake and no action will die off. The action keeps the better players coming who know the rake is a killer if there isn't enough loose play to make up for it. The bad players don't care too much how high the rake is, they just want to gamble. So it might just be that these higher rakes in the Vegas market might help keep some rooms afloat because it may serve as a way to discourage good players from coming out to play.

I get $500 if if I flop then. Its a positive expectation. Taking that one dollar when there is 3 dollars in the pot is really really bad policy by the casino. The players should just adjust now? How about the dealers adjusting too??? IF they don't like their tips... find another job.MOST people have no idea what raking $6 on a $40 pot does to the game. Almost no one can win with that rake. At least 30 hands an hour are dealt and if on average only $4 is taken from each pot... thats $120 an hour taken out !!!! After 8 hours, thats $960 taken out. Guess what.... if everyone started with one rack ($100 )... there is only 40 dollars left between all the players!! YES, YES, I know... you don't have to play. I'M just showing how crazy it is !!! And that is with NO ONE giving one dollar to the dealers yet. Watch how many times a person sits down with $100... and leaves with much less compared to when he doubles his money to $200. Almost never happens.
I played poker at Santa Fe Station last Saturday and they're not taking the dollar any more. Apparently, it was a gaming control violation according to one of the dealers.

Yeah dealers know everything. Just like cab drivers.

I remember when a dealer was talking about Bitcoin being a great investment at $20,000
