Whoeverit, its a philisophical question to a big degree and when the change was made it was no different than changing a no-limit table, to an almost no-limit table… its no longer no-limit.
When different casino’s in Vegas do things differently you can imagine how that causes problems for mid level players, and again as Kasouf did… unpopular isn’t illegal. When a player learns a legal tactic, then is told but no… thats rude… then thats rediculous… I certainly use rules to my advantage, and understand thier downsides too…thats, well POKER… hahaha
Just as in War there are casualties, so are there in Poker… yes you can claim its a balance for “enjoyment”, yet the “enjoyment” for many is the challange of realistic poker. But since you allow a player to re-buyin every hand or every other hand to keep a nominal stack size, I think you should eliminate that just as you eliminated banking chips… @least thats fair to both types of players. I know you won’t do this, because that means you would have to force a min buyin of the table amount.
@least with ML, PL, NL… you offer all types, perhaps ring game tables without this limit too… but you see thats alot of work for what wasn’t already broken that you fixed… I will lay good real money that rude or not, the majority of Vegas casino’s consider this a legal play.
I might as well ask now, on a ring game table ( here ) can I get up and reseat in another seat and just pay the BB again ?? ( even assuming I reseat with my full table stack )… Talk about musical chairs… Basically as I see it, a few newer or weaker players complained so much you made this silly rule. Its not “realistic poker” , heck its not even Fair in the currect implementation and it certainly will confuse any player that learns here then goes to Vegas and is like WTH why is that allowed.
And personally Whoeverit, if the rules are, I pay the BB again in a dry posistion to reseat, then I don’t care if I reseat every other hand, I keep paying the BB over and over and over to keep reseating… You are equating dumb, wierd, unpopular, unconventional or insane ways to play… to illegal play… In the end WIll Kasouf , while unpopular to some, was a god to others… would you have a rule in WSOP main event that any “talk” at a table longer than 1/2 the clock is illegal… of course ya wouldn’t…
Trust me I know how the mgmt here must balance for all players, but this is analagous to changing # of times you can go all in, in a no-limit format… beacuse too many players are going all in too many times… its not something that needs to be fixed…once ya do that its no longer no-limit…and even you gotta admit, Whoeverit… that if 1 person is allowed to add 10k chips every hand while losing, to a 90k stack… it should be equally legal for another player to “bank” that 10k every other hand even if it costs them paying the 1k BB again… thats just fair to both sides, yet as is… its only fair to 1 side.
