Happens to me every freaking time. One particular shift manager always closes my game, even if it's full vs closing other pit games, even if there are fewer players. Short on dealers so they don't want to pay OT off of states minimum wage? Since the beginning of swing, the UTH game has dropped about 15k and during this 8 hr span, only one playe left as a winning player. Everyone else left as a loser. So why not keep it open? I wasn't beating the game that bad, up 500.

Sometimes it depends on what part of the pit the game is in. If itís at the end and they have closed the other games next to it , they donít want to have to keep a dealer and a supervisor for one game.
If they are closing the whole pit down then they basically have to close it.
Some bosses just donít care.

Why should they stay open for you? Dealers want to go home, floors want to go home. If a store closes, should they remain open as long as you want to be there? What makes you more important than a time they need to close?

I guess my question for VegasRider is how much is his average bet?

There were 4 of us at the table. My average buy in for UTH is 1k, and my average bet is $30-$50 a hand, I rarely play trips. Most importantly, if I'm winning, I will always play for the dealer, in other words tip. Again, I think this particular manager who is very smart must realize that if a game must close, he must determine which game will generate the least amount of money. And I'm guessing UTH, it's just not as popular as BJ or Pai Gow. The casino is not 24hr yet, they close at 4am on the weekends so I really didn't put up a stink. I wasn't stuck and it guaranteed me leaving as a winner. However when I play, I usually like to play for 6-12 hrs a session. I treat UTH like playing live poker, and that's usually the hours I put in playing live.

My guess it's a hard close at 4 am for table games. They have to get the janitors out there and put the chips and money away.

They just count down the chips, record it on a slip of paper, the dealer and floor each signs off on the chip count and puts a cover over the tray and lock it. Any money dropped stays inside the drop box until security comes by and replaces the box. Takes only a few minutes to close the game.
