Detroit

Since Greektown's room is no longer a dreary smokehouse with degens lurking in every red-bricked corner, I thought I'd attempt a Detroit Poker thread. We now have (3) decent rooms to choose from; so this could be a central place to post and to keep up with what each room has going on (games, tourneys, comps, changes, player treatment, wierd occurances, etc.).

**************************************************
Phone numbers of poker rooms in the Detroit Metro:

Heidelberg: 734-834-2237
Roundtree: 734-434-1234
Northville: 248-912-5108
MGM: 313-465-1070 (Poker room direct)
MCC: 313-237-6735 (Poker room direct)
Toledo: 419-661-5185 (Poker room direct)

Re: Detroit Poker Thread

I really wish one of the casinos would run a week or two long poker series with a few smaller buy-in events $100-$300 followed by a main event. Along with NLHE have a few Omaha tournaments mixed in. It would be nice to see something similar to the Chicago Poker Classic here in Detroit. I know thats a long shot, but I'm sure something like this would peak a lot of interest...

Re: Detroit Poker Thread

I would say the "in thing" in Michigan is online....then the indian reservations (soaring eagle etc), and then canada, vegas, california

Detroit has too much rake, smoke and is in Detroit.

the charity rooms are less than spectacular, and smoky.

MGM, Motor City & Greektown Poker Rooms are all non-smoking. The rake in Detroit is less thatn the rake in California, especially at the Commerece.

No offense. You know I like you & your room. But it is one of the few reliable Charity rooms in the Detroit area that consistently spreads what they claim they're going to spread and even then it is not exactly a deep pool. The "Big Three" and Windsor must have easily 20X the average weekly volume of all of the "Charity" rooms combined. Is there even a single charity room in Detroit itself?

Sorry but 6 months ago it looked like charity rooms were on their way to being the "in thing" but that just doesn't seem to be the case these days. I could be wrong and showing my own bias, but it just doesn't seem that there is as much Michigan Charity Room interest as there was a year ago.

Yeah, dude. We get it. You don't like the Detroit Poker scene. Whatever.

Truth is we have a few good Charity roooms, three decent, clean, well appointed and reasonably well run rooms on this side of the border. I haven't been to CW in sometime, but I am guessing it is still a pretty well run room.

If you draw a 1 hour radius circle you can probalby find >80 well run safe tables that are easy to find.

I can't really count a multiple hour drive in the "Detroit" scene so I don't count the "Indian" casinos nor Lansing nor rooms further West in Michigan.

Like it or not and cheap shots aside, Detroit has one of the more decent and reliable Poker scenes around.

I like the idea of this thread and considered starting a similar one myself recently. But I don't think it will withstand the "heh heh, Greektown and Detroit suck" posts

Re: Detroit Poker Thread

Pot Odds....actually...I think i am busier now, than i was last year at this time.
The added attraction of Black Jack has been a surprisingly good thing..I even run 2 BJ tables on Fri. and Sat.

Cash games are still the same 2-4 games at all times..and all the tournaments have been restructured to a deep stack format. Last Saturday I had 109 players in a $35 buyin,,$20k starting chips. I expect more this week,,,and Jim Rome is appearing at the track tomorrow night along with some weird co-ed quarter bounce challenge....outta be interesting......

so,,,,i dont think we are dead, just the opposite..........

It's not that I don't like the poker scene. I think the Detroit scene is awesome. I hate the facilites that Detroit poker players have to play in. The casinos are overrated. The dealers/floor don't care, the board people don't know what games are offered or currently running. They all have bad attitudes, and an undeserving sense of entitlement.

The charity rooms are a joke, they have made up rules that don't make any sense. I think the biggest problem I have with the casinos and the charity rooms is that there is no desire to keep a customer happy or keep that customer coming back. I have seen the light and I know there is a better way!!!

I haven't found world class dealers anywhere - Vegas, Cali, Foxwoods... this list goes on. Everywhere I've played there are great dealers and terrible dealers in every rotation.

Let me know where the room is that has all world class dealers and I'll come check em' out.

PS: MGM has some really good dealers (and, of course, a couple of horrible ones).

No reason you can't keep the thread going by posting the happenings in the Charity scene.
