The table goes live on Wednesday. I can't imagine this not being a disaster. If it somehow works, awesome.

Now, let's see. 8 players. 2 dealers. Each players gets 2 hands (a hold'em hand and a Omaha hand.)

What could possibly go wrong ? And surely the dealers will prefer this to dealing a single table. Why, tips will be better for sure !

And the game will be so much easier to control. What a marvelous idea !

How the hell do they get games like this in a casino for trial? 100 out of 100 poker players will say this will not work.

I need to have the guy who pulled this off working for me to get my games/sidebets in.

My 2 favorite places to sit are gone. I like to sit across from the dealer, to see the cards and calculate pot odds. Speaking of pots odds, the game maxes out with 8 players. When 2 players or a couple take a break to eat or whatever, I would be playing 6 handed
till they came back ?? No thanks.

How does this work? Each player gets four cards, then picks two for Hold'Em? or are there two games dealt simultaneously with a red and blue deck? Or, do the games alternate?

According to other sites you get a 2 card hold'em hand and a 4 card omaha hand. How exactly betting rounds occur is unknown. Imagine dealing cards over those dividers. LOL Or how and where players will stack chips? Or pushing a pot to a winning player ???

It took me a while to realize that the "dividers" are intended to keep a single player's two hands separate. It does nothing to keep the neighbors separate.

I can't imagine how this game is operated. I mean, two dealers? How can either dealer control the game and move it along? Keep pots right? Good luck with that.

What happens when someone goes into the tank? Do both games come to a halt?


Bottom line, this has "Cluster-Fuck" witten all over it.

And how about mucking cards ? I can see card hitting the dividers on the way out and being exposed.

And that green thing on the right hand side in front of the chip tray ? Looks like a device used to card-in players ???

Notice it has 16 lights, not 8. Does this mean a player can just play one hand ? I mean, why else 16 lights, not 8 !

No, it's got 16 buttons. It's a standard device. 10 seats (even though this table has only 8), plus buttons to control various functions.


The more I think about it, the more "Cluster-Fuck" is the perfect description.

With two dealers, it seems like the games are not running in sync.

That leads to a problem of bank-roll management. What if you have two good hands at the same time and want to go all-in on both?

Two dealers, each capable of running a single game with 10 players, are now dedicated to working as a team, running this mess with a maximum of 8 players.

And don't forget that the casinos need to pay the game designer for the honor of having this game in their poker room.

Yeah, that's cost effective.


My brain hurts just thinking about it.
