So Bart recently posted a thread complaining about how you need a decoder ring to figure out the BBJ at Commerce. I kinda see both sides of that one, so I thought I would start a new thread where we can vent about whatever other stupid policies exist out there.
I'll go first
Laws went into effect last year making NHLE legal in NH. Limit games and tourneys had been legal for years. Tourney buy in were limited to 150 bucks maximum. So when they added NHLE, they used the same limitation. Except whoever wrote the law didn't understand that cash poker is infinite. So the only practical interpretation of "$150 per game" was "150 per hand". So buy in are capped at 150 for all games and all stakes. Lawmakers also didn't realize they needed to legislate a table maximum.
So let's say you wanted to buy into a 2/4 game for $1k. You would sit down, buy 150 in chips, and play a hand. Then before the next hand, you would add on 150, then play another hand. And you would have to do this 150 dollars, each hand, until you liked your stack.
With new players rotating in and out all the time, imagine how this would destroy your hands per hour.
Some of this has been smoothed over. There are table maximums now, and u can usually buy full stacks at the cage and bring chips to the table. But the 150 at a time rule is still in effect.
