Fuzzypup is moving back to his home state of Florida. Very excited to play poker there. I left when it just started ramping up several years ago. I'd be very interested in hooking up with some of you that play in the Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach area to exchange ideas and talk about strategy.

If you like how I think and what I post send me a message.

    Moving when all the snowbirds are headed home is not a bad idea as if you can beat the games during the summer you will have no problem next winter. My best advice is drive and play around in every room within your driving pain tolerance because games move around and until you make more contacts the best way to find out is to hit the road

    I am familiar with the rooms there. I lived in Florida almost my whole life.

    Hey Fuzzy,
    I live in Orlando and mainly play in Daytona and Tampa, but i try to drive down to Hollywood once in a while cause the games are so incredibly good down there. I'll probably pm you next time i do it, see if you want to meet.

    Cool. I am moving most likely sometime in June. I am in CA where the property prices are skyrocketing and I am bailing at the peak. I got family in need down in Florida so we are moving back. I will look for your PM.

    This is slightly off the topic, but:
    Anyone willing to update me on the status of the games in FL? I was thinking about going for a month or so in the summer, but I heard they were less soft than they were even a year ago

    Status of games compared to:
    Last year
    Two years ago
    When FL first got NL

    I plan on hitting all the casinos from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm to see where is the best place to play. I will be living in Boca Raton smack in the middle of them :D

    I'll try and remember to post it.

    Played 1st game today. Had to play 1/2 because nothing higher was available. Needless to say I will do well. The 1/2 pool here seems worse than the 1/2 pool in San Fran area.

    They seem to slowplay on boards they shouldn't and be trappy. Boards even SF players don't slowplay.
    They overvalue hands they shouldn't
    The tells are more visible
    The jump the gun on betting because no one thinks. That made me a lot of money
    They can't fold TPTK.
    They are completely unaware of bet sizing.

    We did have one reg who played much like a 3/5 Lucky Chances regular. Very aggressive, floated often, raised often. But his hand choices were poor and his positional awareness was not good.

    I'm loving it. Made a lot my 1st session.

    2nd session.... wow. It's like printing money.
  • FuzzypupFuzzypup Posts: 2,575Subscriber
    11th session money keeps coming in. Had to do some adjusting but it's just a different kind of game. Quite happy.

    So got the skinny on some of the locations.

    Hard Rock ***
    1/2 $300 max is actually a good game. People usually buy in for good amounts and it gets deep. They are pretty bad. The TAGs are scared, the recs are plentiful, they pay you off. Very tricky/trappy. Some people you can bluff but mostly its value.

    2/5 $600 has tougher opposition including a fair amount of capable players. Doesn't mean great or even good but capable. Also tricky/trappy

    Food good, service good, environment good.

    Isles Casino
    1/2 game didn't try

    2/5 is 10 handed. Very slow, very loose, almost random doesnt make sense play at times. Players are very bad. Dealers are not so good. Some decent ones, some slow ones. Food is expensive but good (now I know why the comps are good). I think it is so slow it takes off of winnings. So many micro factors in how slow the game is which impact reads, image, hands per hour, and winrate etc. I'd say you play 22-25 hands per hour here.

    Miko on 8th Street Miami
    1/2 $300 game is crazy. They still have 2004 recs who call you with all sorts of goofy hands. Lots of lags, maniacs. it is actually a good game. They have 2/5 but no one plays it. They do play pineapple on occasion. Small field so you can the reads on players pretty quick. Some bluffing is possible vs the right players.

    Kennel Club WPB
    1/2 $200 $2 forced button blind. I didn't play.

    2/5 $500.. I think this is a good game. Players are technically better than Isles but worse than those at Hard Rock but very predictable. You can bluff at this game and you can bet for value. The tables are mixed with various player types. I saw a possible pro at my table. The dealers are good, the game is fast because you don't have 6-8 players per hand. Usually hands are 2-4 way. I think it plays 40% faster than the Isles. This is where I am playing. If you play there and want to hook up PM me.
