    just got back from 5 day trip to Palazzo. Seems as if fire bet is disappearing only at a few TR properties. Anyway trip was successful. Found a few hot tables.
    The last day Thursday am made my way to Venetian one $10.00 table was full and another was empty with a crew so I bought in and started rolling. Hit a couple of points before 7o. 2 others bought in after roll. The guy beside me had never played and started his roll playing $10.00 PL no odds. He proceeds to make about 10 points on his rolls. I colored up with nice profit only to walk bu a few min later and table was at $25.00 min there were no HR at this table So why did they bump table up ?

    They heard that James Hall was coming. No way could he play $42 across on a $25 table.

    Because they can and when they do bump it up it keeps players off of that table which should have dumped money!

    Why? Because all casinos know that it is much more "fun" to play for $25, than to play for $10. They are always looking for ways to increase your entertainment value. When they try to show you how much "fun" $100 can be, they find that most players are overwhelmed, by the " fun" and leave, in search of a table that is less "fun". :D :cool:.

    Most of the strip casinos bump up their limits in the evenings, on weekends, holidays, and special events. Unless you plan on betting more than 2000 on an individual point there's no good reason to play on the strip.

    They'll also bump up the limits if a player requests them. Used to do that all the time on the two tables I like at the Rio until they countered and now only raise the limit on the end I'm playing on. Just one more reason why I don't go to CET properties much anymore.

    oddly enough on a $25 table I would make the adjustment , with my betting strategies I don't need to
    start with a lot to make a lot . I just buy in for $300 and play $160 across and let er rock all the way to the bank
    It ain't rocket science LAD it's CRAPS
    Like table top says it's EEZY PEEZY

    I could still make it work with a $100 buy in
    Hell I could start with $30 and make money , it might take a little longer , maybe another half hour or so but
    we can make it work , just WALK the WALK and don't sweat the small stuff

    If you are playing at a table and they raise the minimum bet, this is a good time to invoke your option of lowering the table max. Pick your chips up, encourage the other players to do the same, if they will follow suit, then you have effectively lowered the table max to $0. Let them masterbate.:cool: It's all about the "fun" remember.:)

    It was about 10 am. If was as if they thought the table was going to start dumping at least that was what I felt. Good luck with that as I was cashed out and heading to the pool.
