Racist Miserable Regs

I've been playing live poker in the state of Florida for over 10 years. I've visited nearly every room in the state. I am passionate about poker rooms. Getting the chance to check out a room I've never been to is always a treat.

With that being said, I'd love to take this time and tell you all a story about my visit to the Magic City Casino today. As a white 28 year old male absolute crusher. (over 2k hours logged 11 BB/hr 2/5)

It all started with the first hand. I sat down as a previous hand was finishing up. As the dealer begins preparing for the next hand, the table informs me that "we're all straddling" they may/or may not have said the word "mandatory".

I respectfully declined.

But they insisted that I straddle. So I look at the dealer and asked "Can I buy in for $1000?"

The reason I ask this is simple: If we're going to do the mandatory straddle thing, might as well allow me to come in for 100BB. I'm not interested otherwise.

The dealer said no. I made myself clear, I wasn't budging. I'm not straddling. They were NOT happy that I didn't fall in line.

So, what happens next, is absolutely hilarious. 3 (or 4) of the players at the table sit out in "protest". They all stand up, walk away, and chit chat. Our game of course, is now playing 4 handed, while there's a very long list of players waiting.

Sure enough, about 8 minutes passes and all of the players return.

So, some key take-aways for management.

#1.) Protests aren't really a thing in public games, the fact that these players felt like this was appropriate behavior speaks volumes
#2.) Your regulars know what time-rake is, right? Like. These pathetic poor regs could always open up a private game. This way they can ensure no white people join! Educate your regulars about their options regarding time rake, as to not scare off tourists who walk into a racist pit.
#3.) 500 cap 2/5, make it 1k or 1.5k and this whole situation is avoided
#4.) Spanish at the table. Really? Like. Between dealers & players, so unacceptable.
