Around the Felt – Interview with new Poker Room Manager Josh Zuckerman…and more

08:03 am


Recently the Poker Room has hired a new manager. He is no stranger to Mohegan Sun or to Poker. His name is Joshua Zuckerman. We sat down with him to answer a few questions.

ATF: Josh, Welcome back to Mohegan Sun. For those who don’t know you, please tell everyone your background in the poker industry?
JZ :My poker background started here in Connecticut in June 1994. I was a Security Officer at Foxwoods that recently completed poker school. I dealt poker at Foxwoods until the Mohegan Sun Casino opened in October 1996. I started here a dual rate dealer and got a great feel for what it was like being on the floor. My involvement in management continued with multiple promotions up to Poker Room Shift Manager over the course of my eight years at Mohegan Sun.
Due to recent law changes in late in 2003, I was hired by Jacksonville Greyhound Racing and Poker in Jacksonville, Florida to open their first poker room. Four years later we opened second poker room and had over 80 tables combined while doubling our staff.
ATF: I’m sure plenty of players have come up to you to introduce themselves, have they been trying to pick your brain on any details on any upcoming promotions?
JZ:  I have!! I got to reconnect with a lot of players I have known for years as well as a ton of new players and they all have asked that exact question. What kind of promotions are you planning on? Of course I told them to keep an eye out for the November calendar. We are looking forward to doing more high hands moving forward!
ATF: If there is one game (other than No Limit) that you would love to see here on a regular basis, what would it be and why?
JZ: I know No Limit really is the game of choice for the modern day poker player however, I would love to see more limit games….stud and hold’em! Of course we can’t forget PLO. I guess it’s safe to say we have an excellent selection of No Limit Hold’em action and I would like to build of that!
ATF: Is there a difference on the clientele at the dog tracks from Florida to Connecticut? Most people would think that it is mainly “Senior Citizens” who play down in Florida.
JZ: That’s a great question. I would say that the atmosphere from the beginning (2003-2009) was very casual and social and as the changes in the law allowed high stakes poker games and tournaments,  if got more competitive. As for the average age, same thing, it was an older crowd in the daytime and got younger at night during the early day of poker if Florida however, after “Black Friday” I think every poker room nationwide would say the average age got much younger.
ATF: Thank you for your time and welcome back!


This weekend is sure to busy here in the Poker Room. The Bad Beat Jackpot is now over $218,206. While the Stud Bad Beat is over $53,283. Come down this weekend and play.
