Yup, same games, different portal. With regard to the overcrowdedness, yeah that could be a problem in the early going, but I believe both Golden Nugget and Betfair are adding a Bet Behind feature where players that are waiting for a seat can bet on other players’ hands.
It’s not a catch all solution, but it works for now. I’m sure if the games got too crowded they’d just add more tables. It’s really a good problem to have.
To tell you the truth, overcrowding wasn’t that big a deal. I had to wait a little bit for a seat on Saturday night, but other than that, not so bad. And even when I was waiting, the dealer went on a super hot streak, so seats opened up.
