Um, Frank, where are the details about the hot seat and royal flush promotions? I have read the new flyer. All I see is a paragraph that says that the promotional fee will be used to fund daily tournament prizes. No details about what the prizes are.

Also, do you think Turning Stone might hire someone some day who knows anything about search engines? Why is it that when I type "Turning Stone Poker Room" into Google that the web page for the poker room does not appear on any of the first five pages (and likely not at all)? It should be somewhat embarrassing to the web team that the first result when I do the search is not even a TS site.

Sorry to complain/be critical but this is not looking so great for you guys.

Thanks GWW, there must have been a glitch in the system on the Bravo end. I reviewed some surveillance footage to see if the structure was correct in the room and thankfully it was. Thanks again for the heads up!

Sometimes when facing certain deadlines, it is important to get general information out to guests in front of specific material we may still be working to improve upon. There are/have been flyers and posters available in the room to tournament guests and anyone else who wanted one that address what the specific promotional prizes are. Those flyers will soon be available on social media once the graphics team and the copywriters feel they are ready for the website and for Bravo. They will also likely change from Month to Month.
As far as the website goes, I like most of our guests, have a shortcut to our webpage on my phone and pc so I don't normally have to Google the room to get there but I do understand the underlying issue. That being said I went in and typed in Turning Stone Poker on Google on my PC and Phone and the TS Main Site came up on the second line. Once there, it was one scroll and a click to get to the room page but I will pass your concerns along to the Web Team. They are probably not aware this is an issue as this is first time anyone has ever complained/been critical of this issue to me in the 2 years I've been here, I wish you would have mentioned it to me sooner during one of your many visits to the room in the past so we could have looked into it earlier and correct if needed.
As always sao, thank you for the feedback and the concerns. In addition, until we get the info on the website, should anyone need specific info for the Tournament promotion prizes please feel free to visit the poker room or call us at 315-361-TOPO(8676)...as always, we will be happy to assist you and address any questions! Thanks again!!!

This is very unusual because when I type "Turning Stone Poker Room" into Google, the poker room webpage is the top hit on page one and the rest of page one is all TS page hits.

When was the last time 5 / 10 no-max ran on a Fri or Sat night? 10 years ago, this was one of the most fun NL games around.

I think your best bet is to monitor Bravo and see if you can sample when it runs.

Frankie will usually set up a game for you as well if enough people get on Bravo or show interest.

It's 50/100 limit holdem, and it runs most Fridays for anyone interested.

As for bigger NL, they had a 2/5 game that turned in to 5/10 nl game last Sat night/Sunday morning. That happens occasionally if the right players are in the game.

Thanks. Could of sworn it said NL, but that makes sense cause 20-40 was running too. I was waiting for the 5/10 stud8 to run but it didn't get going by the time I had to get out.

Hi Wrap, the BBJ did not hit yesterday. It is still up for grab and is over $228K with Quad 6's as the Qualifier hand to beat. If it doesn't hit by this Sunday 12:01AM, the Qualifier will lower to Quad 5's.

My apologies Brid, I checked the room situation and the property is completely booked for Saturday. Al the poker rate rooms are gone as well as the 50 rooms we had set aside for the tournament rate. If anything opens up ill pm you in here. Thanks!

Request for August for your biggest tourney of the year, because you've said that it takes months for these changes to happen:
Please, for the love of god, get rid of the 25-50 level when you start with >20k in chips. We do not need 40 minutes of playing 600bbs deep.

Hi Tab...The abbreviation stands for Buy to the Biggest Stack. We offer that game as an option for those who are/may be interested in playing it.

Re: Turning Stone ResortĚCasino (Verona, NY)

Great promotions Frank. Constant high hands are an absolute enticement to come several times a week. Love the upcoming weekends promotions as well. The 300 high hands on Friday's pack the place. PS good move bringing Mike back he is one of the best for sure. My one question is will all tables ever get shuffle machines?
