The house rules and rakes are always
listed prominently in every casino
poker room, but there are options
every player has that tend to get lost
in the shuffle. Here are three unwrit-
ten rules to think about that can
make your next poker session more
enjoyable and possibly more prof-
Moving tables: Unless the room is
totally dead, the manager on duty will
pick your table and seat for you once
you select the game you wish to play.
Rooms often will have waiting lists for
games, but you should never be intim-
idated by the size of the list. The names
often are holdovers from throughout the
day, and even though there could be six
or seven names on the list, you still may
be able to be seated immediately in a
Once you take that seat, it may
become apparent that you would be
much better off in another game. You
might not like the dynamics of the play-
ers at your table; it could be filled with
Poker/QOP20140130.txtion, or passivity,
than you are comfortable with. Some
people may be too drunk; some might
not know the rules and etiquette of the
game. Or, there may simply be more
money in play at another table.
If you want to move to another table,
all you need to do is ask the manager.
It s not a given that he or she will allow
you to move tables, because it s good
for business to keep a certain number
of players at each table, but it works
more often than it doesn t. Just remem-
ber that this permission must be granted,
and don t take offense if you are denied.
Rake relief: Even in a place like Las
Vegas, the action in the poker room can
die down for lengthy periods of time.
The cash games will get short-handed,
and the players will start to look for ways
to slink out of their seats and head some-
The casino staff certainly doesn t
want you, or the table, to break up, so
you have options. It s one of those rare
moments when the players can tell the
casino what to do.
This is when you ask for rake relief --
a house discount on the amount of
money they take out of each pot. Usually
the cutoff is when the table gets to six
players or less, and the rake is sliced by
35 percent to 50 percent.
If the action heats up and all of a
sudden there are eight or nine players
seated, the rake will revert back to posted
levels, but the shorthanded discount can
make a serious buffer for your financial
Asking for a new setup: If you
think a deck is cursed or generally unfit
for use, you can ask for a new deck to
be put into play. Most requests are
accommodated, but consider this a
nuclear option of sorts, which should
be used only rarely, if at all.
Most of the cards used in today s
poker rooms are made of a tough, thin,
plastic material that can withstand thou-
sands of hands before they wear down.
They are vastly superior to the decks
you will find at the local general store.
Card rooms will replace these decks with
such frequency that they never even
come close to the possible shelf life.
Bad luck never should be a reason to
ask for a new setup. That s a telltale sign
of a losing, inexperienced player. How-
ever, it is a valid request if you think
that a card has been tainted with a mark-
ing or bend.
