Re: Casino Rama Experience

While some players continue to boycott Casino Rama because they don't like the BBJ being mixed in with the rake, it continues to be busy during tournament Mondays. There was a huge lineup for the February 22 tournament, which sold out. Some disappointed players offered huge premiums to ticket holders to sell their transferable ticket, just like what happened at WPT Fallsview two weeks ago. If somebody was crazy enough to offer me the price that I later heard the tickets were selling for, I would have been very tempted to sell myself.

Since there is obviously a huge demand in Ontario for $300-$1,100 tournaments, Rama, Fallsview, etc. need to increase the supply, e.g., more seats, alternates, more frequent tournaments or higher buy-ins. Otherwise, the procrastinating gamblers who just wanna play will continue to offer crazy prices, and rational EV-aware players can't say no to a high guaranteed profit!

Re: Casino Rama Experience

Just wondering if anyone plays here on a regular basis. I'm usually grinding there on the weekends. I heard there are changes coming in regards to the bad beat jackpot but not sure of details.

I haven't played at Rama in years. Is the 2/5 NL game a timed rake or 6+1 like 1/2 NL is? Thanks.

Re: Casino Rama Experience

i play 1/2 but i'd say avg 2 or 3 2/5NL tables on Saturday. Like 10 1/2NL tables and some 1/2 2/5 limit. $5/10NL is rare but happens from time to time.

Re: Casino Rama (Rama, ON, Canada)

Is anybody else going to Rama today, March 9? The $285+$15 tournament will keep the cash games busier than Woodbine as usual.

Do you happen to know anybody that is willing to sell a ticket? My procrastinating friend is looking.

Re: Casino Rama (Rama, ON, Canada)

Anyone know if Rama does any sit n go's or smaller tournaments than the advertised $300 ones?

I'd like to get involved in a live tournament or sit n go but not being a really advanced player......don't want to break the bank in the process.

Only $300 MTTs at Rama. Brantford and Woodbine have some tournaments < $300. http://www.olgslotsandcasinos.ca/cal...ategory/poker/
