Boy did the poker room at the Casino at the island fail, and fail quickly. I don't think it was because of the small rake or no rake games on the island though. There are many towns that have successful poker rooms in casinos while still having "peripheral" home games around with small or no rake. It needs to be ran correctly though, and the Casino's poker room was not ran correctly. I don't think any reasonable person can say that Peter runs his poker room "not for profit", but why should he? Poker is a revenue generating activity that he has just like other places have trivia, bikini contests, bands, ect. The rake is very reasonable!
I do still stand by my original statement though, that a casino poker room on the island would be great. More poker games and consistent by the book poker rules with correct buy in amounts.....HIPHIP HOORAY!!!!

You can't pay most dealers enough to put up with Pedro.

I think perdo's game is the best buy in town .you pay $15 belize only 7 $us to play total, no cut of the pot ,no rake or rape like the big casino's charge!!The buy in is very little so no big investment . You play with nice people ,Get good company and you get to listen to pedro's wonderful personality all night ????? That alone is priceless.Now add Ice cold beer ,Great thin crust pizza ,you got a real deal place!!A true island must do Experience ..

are you cute and perky, and know how to deal??


Once or twice a week? They can get other part time jobs if they aren't working more than one day a week.
No, I'm not cute. Yes, I am purky. Are all dealers at Pedros cute? Double check that.

I don't recall ever claiming to have been there. Just reporting what I've heard is available vs. what I know what I would like. I'm not denying that what you have is good and the best option on the island at the moment.

Poorly run rooms often fail. I was not asking for poorly run rooms... in fact just the opposite.

I'm not telling you how to run your game. In my opinion, your poker game is different that what you expect to find in a real poker room. Specifically that there is only one game running and it's not running daily. Not to mention that since there is no rake, there is no bad-beat jackpot, high hand payouts or other incentives like the free drinks, food or accomodations. I'm not suggesting that you should change your game one bit, nor am I suggesting that anyone should avoid your game. In fact, please... everyone reading this go play at Pedros whenever there is a game. I promise to next time I'm in town.

Have them look me up when they're here... I'd love to take them out for a drink or two... on me... and I won't even collect a rake.
