Thanks UPT,

Is your ante and "ante" or a "bring-in"?  (I assume ante).

How do you do with those short rounds?  Get enough play for each game? 

Do you have dedicated dealers?

Dare I ask for you layout too so I can see how you handle displaying the different games (blinds vs. limits etc)?  You could not supply images or other identifiers if you want it to be more anonymous, I am mostly interested in how you handle display for a HORSE game.

This is just about exactly what I was looking for in terms of duration of play (I could go another hour, so I might just lengthen those 12 minute and 10 minute rounds out a bit.

Problem is that my dedicated dealers are reasonably fast, but not casino fast quite yet, and play tends to be a bit slow, so I am afraid the short rounds might be tough (I could see where we might lose a couple minutes in a 10 minute round to the previous game finishing the last hand).

If anyone knows I would be interested in how many hands are usually played per hour at a casino for stud games and hold'em games.  Just out of curiousity

The Ante is always the ante... the small blind and big blind serve as the bring in and completion for the stud games and Limit 1 & 2 for the small and big bets.

I display the Round, Game, Ante, Blinds & Stakes in a column in the center. I don't label anything except the Ante on the screen... folks know what is what.

If this was a cash game all the levels would be of equal length... but I have found that as the players dwindle in a free-roll the shorter rounds work ok. Everyone around these parts prefers a leisurely start, so I like the compromise.
