Rob Yong has tweeted that high stakes poker is now booming again in Las Vegas. Cash games are constantly on the go, but there looks to have been a fundamental change in how the higher stakes are controlled.

Rob Yong Says Poker Booming in Vegas – Most Games Controlled by Hosts

Yong noticed that cash games with stakes of $25/$50 and higher are now almost exclusively controlled by hosts, making it tough for pros to sit and play.

Is this the start of a new paradigm in live poker throughout Nevada? It might not be so simple because as one poster pointed out in the thread many Nevada Gaming Commision rules are being broken.

Bumhunting No Longer Accepted

It’s possible that this new organisation of games stems from the fact that recreational players just don’t want to sit with pros any longer.

Pros are seen as robotic, super tight, and just not that much fun to play with. But is it really allowed to shun them in a public game and, if not, how do casinos get away with it?

It turns out that games can be labelled as private but any player must be allowed to put their name on the waiting list. It turns out that the game always remains full and no players from the list ever get to play.

This is shady to say the least.

What is surprising is that players are reporting that new tables aren’t being opened even when a waiting list has more than 10 players. Who knows what they are thinking.
