Promotions are the worst in Florida. Rake is the highest.
Tournament structures are all crappy. After the 3rd level, everyone in the room is short-stacked. Even in their "mega" and "deep" stack tourneys this is the case. You get more chips, but the blind levels start higher and increase by larger amounts. After the 3rd level, everyone is playing the short-stack and there is no room to actually play poker.
I live five minutes away from the room in Melbourne. I would much rather drive up to Daytona or over to Tampa than waste any time or money in Melbourne--it's that bad. I play 2-4 times per week, but never in Melbourne.
