Poker; What Are The Stakes And Do They Vary From Location To Location?

St. Denis is $25. That being said, they’re not play until you bust games, so it doesn’t really matter. You could sit at the table all day and rack up a few hundred bucks, or sit down for one hand and leave after loosing 20 cents. They’re just sit and go tables.

But they could make the St Denis game $100 buy in and no limit, for example.

Oh, I agree 100%. I was just answering the question... but if it’s a sit and go style table anyway, the buy in doesn’t matter all that much.

I'm not trying to start an argument, but yes, it does matter.

There's a fundamental difference between playing a high stakes and low stakes game.

$25 buy in, 20c ante, $5 hand limit is low stakes. You can never lose more than $5 on a single hand.

Then, if you make it 'no limits' betting, it doesn't work because the risk is still capped by the low buy-in, and if you significantly increase the ante (say to $5) you burn through your buy in in no time at all.

In the sort of game that is there at the moment it's impossible to replicate the game experience that Arthur has in the story mode.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying all of the poker should be high stake, no limit, but I think it would be cool if one of them was, and St Denis is the place.

Likewise, taking account of the sort of views expressed by Kean, maybe there should be a cheaper (say $5 buy in, 5c ante) game at one of the smaller towns, so that people can participate for the fun of the game without feeling like they are risking a significant chunk of their hard earned $$$s

Yeah, I get it, no worries. I haven’t really experienced a serious poker game in the old west yet anyway. It seems mostly tables full of people screwing around, putting their $5 in on some of the lowest hands possible before the flop. Thinking about it, a combination of low limit ‘fun’ tables, high buy in no limit tables, with the current tables around for the semi-serious and/or broke players would leave a table for just about every taste.

I think a high stakes table would be so, so great. That would definitely weed out some people who are blindly poking buttons, not knowing what to do. I had a few encounters like this and it just got annoying.

This is exactly what was happening. 

 

I'm sure R* will implement something for serious players, in the near future.

That being said, as a money maker, you can pull $25 out of a decent hand at these tables... people seem reluctant to back off after the first dollar gets tossed in... on the other hand, you get taken down by some pretty bad beats on the river sometimes

Ok first my dumb question, what is the button to raise your bet?  I see call, fold and auto bet but I can't figure out how to raise my bet. (I googled to no avail and don't remember from the single player)

 Seemed to be at a table with pretty much same 4 to 6  adults last night.  Ante was either $.20 or $.30. $25 buy in, Max bet was $5, pots where generally low stakes $2 to $15 and just kept checking.  If they go all in...checked or if  I'm not holding just folded.  

Was up for a while but came out even despite every hand seemed to deal me 2's and 3's.  

Seems to drain the cores when you leave the table.  Walked out side and plenty of animal spawns to make back any losses

catch 10 salmon or trout and you're good to go... lose your $25 buy in... catch 10 more salmon or trout,,, no reason to be chicken

 

It's not the fact that I don't have the money or that I can't make it back. ......just the feeling of potentially losing in seconds what I had grind for.  Perhaps once I have a few grand I won't mind.

I'm pretty sure I only had a $5 buy in at Tumbleweed, but it was a private game with just one other player.

Update: It's a $5 buy in for a private game with 2 players with only a max pot of $2 per hand.

The games take far too long for you to lose your money in seconds. I like that they put poker in the game and hope it opens the door for more table games but it sure eats up a lot of time for very limited reward. I can’t see myself playing it too often.

I was playing today and I had been in my friend's Party chat. Often we're not even in the same games but we like to socialize while we play. I went to join a Public Match and I noticed it was greyed out. Then I saw the red text on the left... Huh.

To prevent people rigging games.

If two or more people can communicate without the other players knowing, it gives you. as a 'team' a massive advantage.

If you could do it before, its because R* hadn't thought to disable it.
