Hi Larry,
I see from your charter that €1 will be taken from every cash game pot over €20 on top of the fairly chunky rake cap. This is described as a "service charge" which will be used for dealer tips.
Is this going to be the norm for all Irish Poker Series events or is it just for your LSPKR events?
Will players still be expected to tip and will the "service charge" be up front and transparent?

Hi Mick ,

Firstly I think I was 100% clear about it , It does exactly what it says on the thread €1 coming out of each pot over €20 and goes towards the dealers tip pool .

In relation to hefty rake of €14*, how can I put this to you , this is our rake and our rate our fee and reflects our work , I believe our events are well equipped , professionally run and high standard this is our fee otherwise we can not put these events on .

A bit like driving a Renault Megane or Mercedes*S Class*if we are happy driving the Megane its our choice and that’s totally fine ,nothing wrong with that at all , however if we're chasing Value a bit of comfort and quality we going to have to pay slightly more .

The Registration fee does not even cover the staffing costs , never mind the hefty function room hire , bedroom hire , promotions , and so much more .

In relation to the Future IPS Events yes this will be implemented and players were never ever obliged to tip and it's their own choice if they wish to play our events or not .

A burger costs €10-er a stake is €16

Thank You ,

Larry

Hi Larry

Could I ask why this tournament has been added to the list of ranking tournaments on your website With 2 weeks notice it seems very unfair.

Hi Larry,
My problem with the way the rake is collected at tournaments in Ireland is that it is not 100% clear. Unlike cash games in Vegas, where the rake is left to the side for all to see, until the pot is awarded, the dealers here generally reach into the pot just before it is awarded and lift out an unknown amount of chips and put them straight into the chip tray. I'm not suggesting here that there is anything wrong going on but, the system here leaves it open to mistakes and to abuse.

These comments are not being aimed at you or your staff in particular as all the tournament operators here use the same system, as far as I know. So please don't take these comments personally. This method of collecting the rake, regardless of the cap amount, has always been a bugbear of mine.

I hope that when you introduce this "service charge" it is made 100% clear to the players that a €1 tip has already been collected so as to avoid players unknowingly tipping twice.

As regards your car reference, I was at a tournament at the weekend where the cash rake was capped at €10 for all games and the main event had no re-entries and the organizers seemed happy enough with their share. Also, most of the dealers at that event were the same ones as you employed at yours, so no real difference in quality. If you're suggesting that event was in the Megane range, then I'm quite happy to travel by Renault.
Again, using the car comparison, I could probably be driving a Ferrari right now if I added up and still had all the reg fees, rake and tips I have paid out over the years.

So, as regards value, maybe you could let me know where I can get a steak for €16 around Dublin.

Hi ,

Do you refer to the irishpokerseries.com website ? Totally don't understand the issue ?

If so the answer is very simple , the proper promotion for the 30/30 did not start until until the Munster MEGASTACK was over so we did not have the time to list it .

Thank You

Larry

I'm not suggesting here that there is anything wrong going on but, the system here leaves it open to mistakes and to abuse.

these comments are not being aimed at you or your staff in particular as all the tournament operators here use the same system, as far as I know. So please don't take these comments personally. This method of collecting the rake, regardless of the cap amount, has always been a bugbear of mine.

I hope that when you introduce this "service charge" it is made 100% clear to the players that a €1 tip has already been collected so as to avoid players unknowingly tipping twice.

As regards your car reference, I was at a tournament at the weekend where the cash rake was capped at €10 for all games and the main event had no re-entries and the organizers seemed happy enough with their share. Also, most of the dealers at that event were the same ones as you employed at yours, so no real difference in quality. If you're suggesting that event was in the Megane range, then I'm quite happy to travel by Renault.

Well Mick ,EXACTLY , - you must not play enough cash games on events where I am in charge and Managing the Cash Floor as my GOLDEN RULE it goes like this since 2007 and it is implemented on every single event .

1.Only Rake once at the very end of the hand before the pot is awarded .
2.Rake is collected
3.Rake is Opened and visibly shown to the players
4.Rake Dropped or placed into the chip rack
5.Dealers aren't allowed to rake partially or separately on each street ONLY when action completed before awarding pot for the exact reason so I am , I always was and I always will 100% transparent whats going on . If I wouldn't I would not state it on my opening post about the service charge .


I am not taking here things personally whatsoever all I am saying that these are my fees for a reason , our set up & take down costs alone at certain events can be close to 80 men hours .

On our bigger events and introducing now on our weekly games as well we are using a state of the art tournament management software with live updates so players have comfort to follow the event anytime anywhere with chip counts , bust outs , remaining players etc , we are hiring a photographer so your famous cap and you will look good on social media as we want you to look good

Occasionally we live stream the 30/30 and other events which we may do at SERIES V not sure yet ( might lift the rake to be able to afford it LOL ) I would call this the Bentley factor forget about the Merc .

Hiring top class security for top $$$ to comfort everyone with a peace of mind ,lets not mention about the TD's ,( nothing wrong with other TD's I am just saying we're using the Best Ones ) and I could go on and on and on .

Freeze Outs are totally cool and I am delighted that you like them and works well for Northern Poker I never said there is something wrong with them also if Northern Poker or anyone else like the Fitz or Whoever would like to charge 5 rake cap that's their own business and good luck . Larry Santo rake is 5% capped at 14 !

I think we all work hard prior to the event , at the events , taking risk and provide a service I think we are entitle to make a wage out of it as I can 100% assure you if I add my working hours together which goes into an event my hourly rate would not impress you and you probably would suggest to higher that rake or the reg fee lol or pay for my dinner !

After all this publicity ,the thread got going and we all know there is no such a thing as bad publicity so you don't need to worry about value as your next stake dinner its on me

Sorry I wasn't more prιcised just got home from the building site from my other job and a bit tired !

3.Rake is Opened and visibly shown to the players

Not sure this happens too often. All I ever seem to see is chips being grabbed and put in tray without being aware how much is taken.

Not sure your photographer could make me look good unless he/she takes lessons from Satnav on airbrushing/photoshopping/filters.

Rake should never ever to be dropped without opening , This is our procedure so I guess its time for a reminder before events !

I must give Satnav a call to give us some Photoshop lessons
