Excalibur to remove automated tables, bring back live dealers.
The 10 month "experiment" of automatic poker tables at Excalibur will come to an end soon.
This, in my opinion, is a good thing......

The Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas says it is removing touch-screen monitors from its poker room and will return to a traditional setup with live dealers.
Tablemaker PokerTek Inc. and hotel owner MGM Mirage said Tuesday that the tables would be removed July 5.
Players use the touch-screens to control action at the tables, with no chips, cards or dealers.
MGM Mirage officials say they found that players prefer live dealers to automatic tables.
