Online player Tim looking to try the real thing!!!

Hello Jim,

I am a long time online player. ( yes I am one of those) I play for cryptocurrency. I generally only play tournaments. I have wanted to come try my luck and skill in a live tournament for sometime. One of my issues is I am disabled. It is hard ( painful) for me to sit for long periods of time. This is a curse for someone who loves poker.  Oddly , the harder the chair the better. I want to come and just view a tournament. Get a feel for the place before I play a tournament. Is spectating allowed?  And if so for how long? I am curious how many people tend to show up. What are your most busiest days and what are your least?

Thank You!

Hello Tim, thanks for the question, it’s a good one, as we already have a few handicapped players that stop by to play a little Poker or Blackjack. Spectators are certainly allowed, but we do ask that those observing stand back at least 2 to 3 feet from the table to leave a small buffer zone between the players and observers. It’s an imaginary line called the Rail. This does make it a little more difficult to see, if you must be sitting, however, we do provide tall chairs for that purpose. (Most players don’t like someone standing right over their shoulder and possibily seeing their cards, therfor getting a read on how they play.) There is no specific time limit for observing, as long as you are quiet and unobstruvive, courtesy to the players seated is expected. If you have any questions about a specific hand just ask one of the Floormen. When you have decided to test the waters, if the chair offered is not to your suitability

, you may substitute one of your choosing, as long as it does not encroach on the space of another player. (There is just enough room to fit nine players at the table, so the replacement chair should be no wider than the one offered.) Our busiest tournament is definately Saturday, it is quite often sold out. Tim, we always look forward to having first time players join us, and I promise we won’t hold your internet experience against you!! Thanks again for your question, I hope that this info has been helpful,  jim
