Poker is utterly imbalanced/broken

Because players can join with all the money they carry, a guy who joins with 300,000$ can continuously make 5000$ bets and clean up everyone as long as they have far less money. 

There needs to be some sort of limit for tables. Split them into stakes.

 

Low Stakes - you can only join in with 50,000 $ max

 

Medium stakes - up to 200,000 $

High Stakes - Above 200,000$ / no limit

As it is, this just makes people with ridiculous sums in cash win by default, because they can simply do stupid bets that other people can't afford to call. 

Alternatively, put a limit on how much cash someone can carry. 100,000$ or something.

Agreed. Every time I played poker with "low stakes" there was always the typical 3 guys with 300k in their pockets who would always raise up to the point where most of the table would have to go all in. It's incredibly annoying.

It's unrealistic and outright breaks the game.

I don't really see how your suggestion will make any difference when it comes to high rollers participating in low stake games, when they can simply play aggressive with the $100,000 and then withdraw more to continue infinitely re-buying in. It all comes down to the management of the gambling establishment, they have to establish IC rules and have supervision over the poker table, something the script doesn't offer yet.

That is not unrealistic at all, it actually happens in real life. As @Powersaid that's really an IC issue that has to be handled by casino owners, there's nothing to do OOC about that. The simple solution is to go and play in another table, that's why usually in casinos there are tables with high bets and other tables with lower bets.

We've had this talk many times before. Poker will not change, it's the casino's choice if they want to put a limit on how much money can be brought in or not, aka, an IC issue.

In real life low and mid stakes games usually have chip limits to moderate this sort of behavior.

 

Handle it ICly.

 

If somebody's at a low stake game and raises like...15k, tell the dealer and see if he'll do anything about it.

It is mostly an IC issue but to be honest, most places have limits to their tables, atleast the possibility to choose to partake in a limited table or not.
Unlimited tables are maybe normal in Monaco but not in your average casino, atleast from my personal experience.


Think its a combo of both IC and OOC to be frank.
