Yes, I think you are correct on it being "basic". The card room manager at Harrah's New Orleans said that a year ago they seldom ever had Hold'em played in their card room, and most of the very few games requested were for 7C Stud and Omaha, with the majority of Omaha players being elderly folks. The explosive demand they have seen in Hold'em [thanks to the WPT on Travel Channel] has caused a boom, and I guess the dealers are newly trained because of this. One other thing, their card room is amidst all the noise of the slots. Kinda makes a big distraction for the card players. In contrast, the Gardena area card rooms are relatively quiet with a more pleasant ambience.

: Okay smarty pants. What if it is a planted question to make one look like a

: Actually the dealer at our table did not know the answer, and had to call for

: Cheers.
