Surprised some of the FW 5/10 guys don't come over to play. 4 bucks an hour comps and a nicer room IMO.
Had the pleasure of being stacked for around 150 bbs when I flopped a set of Jacks Thursday night vs. a set of Aces by an aggressive reg. kid with a shaved head who opened in the HJ.
Run awesome at blackjack and sh** at poker there.
Being a 5/10+ NL regular, I can speak about this topic.
It is a nicer room, but Foxwoods also offers its own perks that the 5/10 crowd finds very attractive:
--There is almost always at least 1 game going on, and this implicit guarantee is important to us.
--There is a firmly-established player base at Foxwoods that is loyal to the casino, and the player base is competitive and friendly to newcomers. Most of the regulars at MS who play 2/5 have no desire to play 5/10, often stating a lack of bankroll or a lack of success at this stake; it really does play differently than 2/5.
--Foxwoods offers its loyal black card holders 4 points per hour to match Mohegan.
--Foxwoods also gives its 5/10 players 2 comp rooms per week, which really eases the stress of driving down every day for people like me who live over an hour away.
EDIT: A nitpick, but MS has its safe deposit boxes in PLAIN SIGHT, which is a MAJOR turn-off for people who store large amounts of cash. I have had people leer at my bankroll and actually comment about how much money I have...it is very unnerving. At Foxwoods, the room is lockable and private.
If anything, we try to encourage those 2/5 players there who are likely ready to move up to come on over and to test our waters
