Does it depend on what you play more? I sometimes get poker ones, and sometimes blackjack ones with a mix of food discounts.

I'd like to get more poker coupons ($10 add-on for example) instead of the blackjack ones.
I was told that it is based on your last few months of activity.

Great series so far. Are you going to post results to Hendon Mob?

Around 40 in the 11a, 40ish in the 2pm qualifier, and 98 in the Main. If we don't get 98 in the main tomorrow, we will have to add enough to make it like there was 98!

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

There was an Open Face Chinese game going yesterday at Running Aces. It was short handed and only lasted about an hour but it's nice to see something other than Hold Em running. It does raise the question on what games are they trained and authorized to spread. Could they deal 2/7 triple draw, razz, or draw poker?

They have run HORSE and Big O before, in tournament play at least.

We can do draw games and Razz. We have run a H.O.R.S.E. cash game here before as well.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

What types of draw games have / will you spread?

A spread limit 2-7 triple draw would be pretty amazing if you could find people confident enough to play it.

Was thinking of making a trip to canterbury sometime soon and could def split time for the right kind of game.

Even a 15/30 or 20/40 2-7TD would be very attractive.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

If somebody ever wants to organize starting triple draw they could PM me. Ideally at least several days in advance cause I don't play live often enough to keep a cash bankroll.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

Been playing at RA a bit after a few years off of poker. Enjoying the card room and staff so far, the regularity with which you can find a 2-100 SL/SL straddle game is really nice.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

I have been out of the area for half a year and see on their website they are now offering SitNGo Tournaments - are these 9 or 10 handed and how often do they run?

Anyone partaking in the $280 Mayhem in May ME this weekend? Won a seat through a qualifier, looking forward to seeing a pretty large field.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

Public Service Announcement:

Just back from WSOP and saw a lot of the big MN pros and better players down there so this might be a great time to try a bigger tourney locally like the Running Aces Easy Money or Team Battles in June while they are all absent.

PS - Also saw many RA dealers at the WSOP and chatted with a few of them as well.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

Last night was my 2nd time at the Running Aces Poker room, and I really liked it a lot! I don't have a lot of experience in live poker, but the competition at the 2-100 table didn't seem too reg-heavy.

Yeah you can definitely find a good 2/100 spread game if you are willing to move around, especially now with most of the pros in Vegas. If you ever wanted to step up and try 2/100 spread now through early July would be the time!

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

I've only scanned the thread, so forgive me if I've missed it, but can any regulars give us a rundown of what games/stakes are typically running?

Also, I don't think I've seen any mention of PLO in Minnesota, am I just not looking hard enough?

thanks

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

Minnesota has a $100 maximum bet size, so 2-100 Spread Omaha is the common game in the area for Omaha lovers.

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

Oh, yuck, gross, max bet $100 just sunk in, for some reason I was only thinking of it with regard to Texas holdem, didn't consider Omaha. So there are just no big NL or PL games in casinos there. Ouch. Guess I'll have to find a good PLO home game (in another forum, I know).

Re: Running Aces (Columbus, MN)

Yeah 2/100 spread Omaha High running almost every night. Also, they have really got more Limit Hold Em games going lately. 4/8 runs almost every day and they are even getting 6/12 LHE and Omaha8 or better going many nights a week as well. If you live on the east or north side of the Twin Cities and want to play limit I would seriously consider checking out these games as well as the great promotions RA has daily.
