在洛杉矶的三大赌场,现在传播中国扑克都在以自己独特的风格。我参观了他们在最近一次与我的妻子Florrie,我想分享一些与你的经验。

第一站是好莱坞公园赌场,这是全国第一个房间提供中国扑克。这场比赛是在Pegasus客房,舒适的壁龛就在主要的扑克地区也举行了高限扑克游戏,这样星加布卡普兰,杰里 - 巴斯和弗兰克·马里亚尼而我们在那里传播。这很有趣,在中国的行动休息期间,以谨慎观察比赛。两个或三个表活跃与konditions一个典型的晚上(因为他们在加利福尼亚州说,借用潘的术语)从$ 10到每点100 $。赌场允许玩家按照自己的意愿构建了比赛,但几乎所有的游戏都具有天然动手打过(6双,三直道或三个冲拿下4分),移交,并没有费。当我从费城两个朋友和一位和蔼可亲的地方打了一个例外出现。我们淘汰投降,只是在时间加费,我拿起我曾经持有的最好的一只手 - 在中间的背部和股四头肌同花顺 - 从每个玩家赢得15分。特许权使用费可以很有趣!

我们得到了在国王体育赛事($ 200条目以再次买入)的中国扑克事件发挥,我继续我早期的淘汰赛连胜。我得想出一个奖励是更好的球员锦标赛格式。在光明的一面,事件是由我的朋友迈克·卡森,一个优秀的球员,谁获取了$ 15000+奖池的大部分份额夺得。 Florrie完成了第8位,刚出来的钱。好莱坞公园玩的好地方。每当我去那里,那感觉就像我在朋友们所管理的赌场。一定要停止在当你有机会。

该自行车俱乐部开始在自己堂屋今年夏天传播中国,但最近刚刚把它移动到亚洲展区。四个表都可以每天晚上他们在爆满,几乎完全与亚洲球员。典型konditions为$ 5,$ 10和每点$ 25。该动作有一个明确的东方韵味:咨询合作伙伴关系是常见的,英语很少听说,也有不变的背景从相邻排,牌九和Super-泛9桌的声音。大多数时候,我们感觉就像在异乡的陌生人,但球员普遍友好和乐于助人。只要记住,如果你在这个环境中发挥(并且不是东方),你是局外人,你应该要特别注意的回报,与其他玩家交易,并通过floorpeople了解裁决。

本场比赛是结构化的自行车俱乐部“亚洲之路”:赢得2出3得一分;赢得所有3让你4分。双手自然自动获胜4,特许权使用费算,并没有投降。此外,从每个对手,如果你横扫一切的手(也称为一个“本垒打”)获得额外的3分。这是玩一个令人兴奋的方式,但比起好莱坞公园结构的短期变化是非常大的。考虑这个手迈克·卡森回升:AAķJJJ 9 888 66杰克的全云在返回手的问题是,是否在中东和王高在前面打一个完整的家或跳闸8的和王牌在前面。满堂红 - 满堂红通常会从每一个对手拿下三分(3选2 1分加二点分红),偶尔会(小于10%)横扫对手6分。在替补上场抛弃2点奖金尝试一个可能的四点扫描并给出了赢得本垒打从每个球员7点的25%的机会。迈克正确播放完整的家 - 旅行 - 对;至少它似乎正确的,直到球员面对自己的底牌。满堂红在​​后面和王牌面前赢得了对每一个人,但三八分在中东失去了在每个位置上的顺子或同花。令人惊讶的是,王高会包揽前和下戏会拿下一个本垒打。取而代之的是三点他居然赢了,他将净赚27分与其他玩!这是方差黑桃!如果你喜欢快速的行动,自行车应该是你的站的​​列表中。

我们听说商务部俱乐部在测试的基础上传播中国,决定一探究竟。我们抵达找到两个表演奏他们的国语版,每点$ 5。 “什么是国语版”,我们问。的反应是施舍类似一个复杂的计算机流程图。一些研究之后,我们发现,三分之二的三胜一分,但扫胜六人。有稿费,本垒打和各种价值观的九种不同的自然手。你可以投降,但收费对手三分。这种结构是不是我的那杯茶,但Florrie认为这将是有趣。 30分钟后,我们决定,我们已经受够了乐趣和三点投降似乎不再像一个坏主意。美国商务部是一家伟大的俱乐部,但如果你去那里玩中国带来了计算器图中的收益和大量的金钱。

中国扑克已经起飞在加州有三个主要房间蔓延三个截然不同的变化。这将是有趣跟随游戏的发展在未来几个月。

 

 

 

Three major casinos in Los Angeles are now spreading Chinese Poker, each in its own distinctive style. I visited them on a recent trip with my wife Florrie, and I'd like to share some of that experience with you.

The first stop was Hollywood Park Casino, which was the first room in the country to offer Chinese Poker. The game is spread in the Pegasus Room, a comfortable alcove just off the main Poker area which also hosted a high-limit Poker game featuring such luminaries as Gabe Kaplan, Jerry Buss and Frank Mariani while we were there. It was fun to discretely observe that game during breaks in the Chinese action. Two or three tables were active on a typical evening with konditions (as they say in California, borrowing a term from Pan) ranging from $10 to $100 per point. The Casino allows the players to structure the game as they wish, but almost all the games were played with natural hands (six pairs, three straights, or three flushes win 4 points), surrender, and no royalties. An exception arose when I played with two friends from Philadelphia and an amiable local. We eliminated surrender and added royalties just in time for me to pick up one of the best hands I've ever held - a straight flush in the back and quads in the middle - and win 15 points from each player. Royalties can be fun!

We got to play in the Chinese Poker event of the Sport of Kings tournament ($200 entry with rebuys) and I continued my streak of early eliminations. I've got to come up with a tournament format that rewards the better player. On the bright side, the event was won by my friend Mike Carson, an excellent player, who garnered the lion's share of the $15,000+ prize pool. Florrie finished in 8th place, just out of the money. Hollywood Park is a great place to play. Whenever I go there, it feels like I'm at a casino managed by friends. Be sure to stop in when you have the opportunity.

The Bicycle Club began spreading Chinese in their main room this Summer, but just recently moved it to the Asian Pavilion. Four tables are available and they're packed every night, almost exclusively with Asian players. Typical konditions were $5, $10 and $25 per point. The action has a definite Oriental flavor: consulting partnerships are common, English is rarely heard, and there are constant background sounds from the adjacent Pai-Gow and Super-Pan-9 tables. Most of the time we felt like strangers in a strange land, but the players were generally friendly and helpful. Just remember that if you play in this environment (and are not Oriental), you are the outsider and you should be especially careful about payoffs, transactions with other players, and understanding rulings by the floorpeople.

The games are structured the Bicycle Club "Asian Way": winning 2 out of 3 gets one point; winning all 3 gets you 4 points. Natural hands automatically win 4, royalties count, and there is no surrender. In addition, you get an extra 3 points from each opponent if you sweep all hands (known as a "home run"). This is an exciting way to play, but the short-run variance is very large compared to the Hollywood Park structure. Consider this hand that Mike Carson picked up: AA K JJJ 9 888 66 4. Jack's full goes in the Back hand and the question is whether to play a full house in the Middle and King high in Front or trip 8's and Aces in Front. Full house - full house will usually win three points from each opponent (2 out of 3 for one point plus a two point bonus) and will occasionally (less than 10%) sweep an opponent for 6 points. The alternate play forsakes the 2 point bonus to try for a likely four point sweep and gives about a 25% chance of winning a home run for 7 points from each player. Mike correctly played full house - trips - pair; at least it seemed correct until the players faced their cards. The full house in Back and the Aces in Front won against everyone, but the three eights in the Middle lost to a straight or flush in each position. Amazingly, King high would have swept the Front and the inferior play would have scored a home run. Instead of the three points he actually won, he would have netted 27 points with other play! That's variance in Spades! If you like fast action, the Bike should be on your list of stops.

We heard that the Commerce Club was spreading Chinese on a test basis and decided to check it out. We arrived to find two tables playing their Mandarin version at $5 per point. "What's the Mandarin version", we asked. The response was a handout resembling a complex computer flowchart. After some study, we found that two out of three wins one point, but a sweep wins six. There are royalties, home runs, and nine different natural hands of various values. You can surrender, but it costs three points per opponent. This structure is not my cup of tea, but Florrie thought it would be fun. Thirty minutes later, we decided that we'd had enough fun and a three point surrender no longer seemed like a bad idea. The Commerce is a great club, but if you go there to play Chinese bring a calculator to figure the payoffs and plenty of money.

Chinese Poker has taken off in California with three major rooms spreading three distinctly different variations. It will be interesting to follow the game's evolution in the months ahead.
