If this certain promotion was his idea, he got it right from the poker player's point of view but wrong from the casino's point of view. The final say on the promotion surely rested with one of the casino managers or bosses or whatever you want to call them, and if they allowed a clearly -EV bet to take place in their casino, then that has to be incompetent. The promotion was a HOUSE GAME promotion, not a poker promotion (the promotion was ON a house game, the prize was a poker prize)
The league play off was on a Saturday night where 2 players were allowed to substitute in for a play off (which was always against the rules). This was a decision taking by Carmen. When shuffle up and deal was announced I stopped the game from starting until the director on the night confirmed this through both herself and John (overall manager, well at least that was what he though he was) who both were not there. After another 30 mins waiting it was confirmed that we could play or leave (basically go fuck yourselves we are changing the rules because 1 of the players is managing us....) We played on, I bubbled to the same player.

On Sunday, I wrote (as in old school ink and paper ) and handed in a letter of complaint to John marked private about the situation.

On Monday when I walked in a dealer said to me "surprised to see you, though you would be home writing letters". This was also said at the table that night by the same sub above. I decided then that once my leagues were over I was finished with the club. I have been in 3 times this year to basically catch up on the regular's. These new promotions were started that night by Carmen. She called me aside at the start of the night and confirmed that (1) These new promo's were her idea and would run until end of the year, (2) John had told her to let the lads stay in the play off's, (3) That neither she nor John knew their own no subs rule even though everyone else did (4) That I could basically go fuck myself.

And i am not saying all the ideas were good but this girl was trying her best and feeling her way to see what would work best.

And in regards to the paying out of one of the promotions before it had ended....this was done in order to save the cash game....it was the BEST HAND OF THE MONTH promotion....the dealers had to collect a euro from the button on every hand to swell the pot for this.....so when 4 aces were got early in the month the players were not prepared to pay a euro each in every round to try to beat this hand and the game died completely for 2 weeks....so in the interest of the game the best hand was paid before the end of the month and the cash game started again.and this promotion was scrapped as one of the bad ideas (remember nobody is perfect ).....also the hand that was got afterwards by a player was a royal flush .....and the game where this hand was got would never have taken place if the promotion hadnt been payed out early .....so this point is N/A.
It's amazing that the same sub above is the same person who got paid out mid month on the jackpot. Again, he managed the management with the same bullshit above. I have no issue with him, he looked for things and they gave them to him.

By the way since private does not mean much. I was talking over a pint with someone about Jude's return. I said I was delighted he was back but gave out about how many got paid on his 1st night back (I told him this). I also said that nothing had changed and he was his usual over the top self (which was a good thing). A couple of nights later I was asked by herself to submit a complaint as she was not happy he was back and that they could start the process of official warnings if I would do this. I told her to go fuck herself.
