Email them and ask. I'm not sure why they would choose to do this unless the sharks are eating up the guppies to fast. People are under the impression casinos don't care who wins in poker. They really don't want anyone to win. The just want everyone to pass the money around the table until everyone is broke. That's why they limit buying in on most NL games.Quote: Zer0
So today I logged into Bovada's poker program to find 7-stud was no longer an option for games to play. Does anybody know if it will be back or is it gone for good? If it's gone that's sad, one of the reasons I like Bovada is because it had 7-stud.
maybe there will be a new website?
No, it is not.Quote: AxelWolf

Feel free to eighteen me to as why they limit the amount you can buy in for on a NO LIMIT GAME.Quote: DrawingDead
No, it is not.
Players may want this rule so they don't feel as if they can be bullied and they don't want to build up a significant stack all night just to have someone new buy in enough to cover them and then bust them. They feel more comfortable.
IMO it's to protect the players from going broke to fast.
I dont care why the players want or do it. I'm certain that's the reason the casinos do it. They want players to return and slowly bleed money to the drop.
They make almost nothing from one guy if 2 guys sit down with 10k and someone gets busted on the first hand.
That guy is done for the night. They would rather him not lose all his money on one hand.
Of course there are. Binions and GN used to have it, even on just the 1/2 blinds, thats why the games were good IMO. There would be guys who came in with 5k++ and played bad.Quote: Ibeatyouraces
There are some "no max" buy in no limit games around. They're usually the higher blinds games though.
Don't know what they are doing downtown regarding the buy in max nowadays because places change all the time.
