No Limit Hold Em is Changing Poker Rooms in South Florida

Play at Full Tilt Poker!

As reported before, Florida Governor Charlie Crist is negotiating with the Seminole Indian tribe to try to strike a deal to allow the Seminoles to offer full class three license gambling.

The deal would have to be agreed upon before a deadline that has already been set for the third week in August. If a deal is not set, then the Seminoles will push forward with a Federal lawsuit.

In the meantime, a law that did go into affect on July 1st of 2007 has changed the face of many card rooms around the state.

The Seminole casinos in Coconut Creek and Hollywood, along with a few parimutuels in the area, used to run continuous No Limit Hold em tournaments, with buy ins from $50 all the way to $1000.

Since July, those tournaments have all but disappeared, and have been replaced by No Limit Hold em cash games.

Players can now sit down with $100, play as free as they wish, and buy in for another $100 as soon as the first $100 is gone. This has led to the demise of the tournaments because players can get as much action as in the tourneys, only, when they are knocked out, they can simply buy back in and not have to wait for another tournament to start.

The end result of this is that the lower budget players are getting pushed around by the people who don't mind pulling $100 after $100 out of their wallets to test their fate at winning a big hand.

The level of play is down, but it might not matter for much longer, for if the Seminoles get their way, most players will move on to more popular table games of Blackjack, Craps, and Roulette, and leave the poker tables to the high rollers.
