Recommended Posts

Anybody playing at the Harrahs at Cherokee? They have pokerpro digital tables and they are fast. I averaged about 55 hands per hour in my last session. No misdeals or tipping... I like it. Ive been a few times and the games are super soft. 1/2NL 300 max. Anybody playing there regularly?

If you like playing 1/2, then Cherokee is not a bad place if you don't want to drive to PA or WV...3 hours from Greensboro and many regular faces at the tables. I usually try to go once or twice a week, probably more now that online is gone. Lots of stations that will pay off your monsters. I was getting in about 45 hands/ hr in my 50 or so visits. Strangle them post flop, profit, repeat...unfortunately they don't spread many other games (sometimes the occasional 2/5 opens, but nothing larger I've seen) although I heard MTT's are in the works. It's decent considering the options currently, my two cents...If you ever want to carpool tcrowley, hit me up with a PM. I may or may not also see the occasional game in town. 1/2 and some 5/10 twice a month....

Used to play pokerpro tables at Boomtown in Shreveport. I liked them for speed, accuracy, no tipping, sanitation (no dirty chips and attendants would disinfect play stations after a user left). I was in the definite minority, and the room got very little traffic and closed.

I've been a full-time online grinder for the past year and after last weeks shocking news I've been making the trip to Cherokee. After a few sessions of $1/2 NL (since it seems $2/5 NL never fills up), my first thought was how can ppl grind cash games for a living. However, $$$ can be made on weekdays when the buses drop a buttload of ppl off with the old fellers wandering to the poker room and on Saturdays the room is also packed. Still waiting for the day when a PLO table fills up.

It's nice to see that us onliners still have a shot on sattying into the wsop main event with Cherokee running a $1k satty in mid-May so check out their site for details. i still wish they had live dealers and look forward to the day they do so maybe we'll have a WSOP circuit stop in North Carolina.

Alan, I'm curious as to why you wish they would have live dealers if you can get at least double the hands in with the digitized system, and save a few bucks on the tips? I can understand the circuit part, but they can just get live dealers in if they were to get a WSOP circuit stop.

GL to you, hopefully some bigger games start happening that aren't shark filled.

Agreed on the money you save but I cant see this room ever flourishing with these pokerpro tables. I love the concept of them, especially since playing PLO is much quicker. However, there are hardly any mtts and the ones I have played consists of <30 players. This is my personal opinion but I cant see this room growing until they have live dealers and can house large events. I believe WSOP will never have a circuit event at Cherokee until this happens. But I'm not knocking the tables, def quicker and cheaper w/o having to tip the dealers...

So last night was my first time playing on electronic machines. There is a casino in Madison, WI that just got these late last year. There was a few things I noticed last night that I didn't like when compared to playing 1.2 nl in a casino other times. Would like to hear what other people thoughts are on my observations.

1. They display the amount in the pot. Now, I know you have to do this as there aren't physical chips, but the problem I had was people tended to make more appropriate size bets when compared to the pot. For instance, post flop people were usually betting between 40-75% of the pot. Now when I have usually played live, especially as you get later in the hand and the pot might have $100 in it, people tend to underbet the pot like $25 or $30 in it. Thoughts?

2. People are more likely to bet more because of the value of chips displayed to click. The machines had $1, $5, $25, $100 and all in buttons. I found people tended to bet a lot of $50, $75 or push all in in correct spots because it was easier to click these buttons then it is to physically put the chips in. I think also has something to do with psychology of putting the chips in.

3. People played tighter preflop. My guess is had to do with hands being more frequent, so people could be more patient.

4. It was deeper stacked. Most stacks ranged from $200-$400 (buy in was $300). I think this was because you loaded a card prior to going to the table, and then could easily add more chips on at the table. I think people tended to add onto their stack more frequently as a result.

5. Table conversation was quite lacking. Probably because people aren't forced to talk, so as a result people. I kind of like the aspect of conversation, part of the enjoyment of playing live.

6. I found it harder to get tells. I found myself not looking at players as much and studying them as much.

I live in Asheville. I have yet to go there to grind b/c I usually play online. My friend Leif is a live pro and says it's pretty soft. I was just talking about going up there the other day w/ Alienface and JLizard. Im probably gonna head up there sometime this week.
