The greektown game is alright, i've played it 3 times but i've never run well or had much fun playing in it. Not sure theres very much easy $ there anyways. Do mostly the same faces show up Saturday and Tuesday?

i've really been waiting for mcc to do something for awhile.. i think they were spreading some limit omaha high game the other night I went but it'd be cool if they'd at least try running a 1/2 plo some time. that rxr game is lame too..
Yes it's mostly the same people that have been playing for the last 10 years 2x a week. In fact they get priority when they sign up on the list a week ahead of time

hold 'em/omaha round by round. $30-60 at G'town on Monday and on Tues, Wed, Sat the round by round is at MC. It's 15-30 or 20-40 depending on the day.

MC used to have a $15-30 limit hold 'em only game on Friday. Not sure if it still runs or not. Call for details. These are the only limit games other than the $3-6 at Greektown

Structure is pretty terrible for this, (look it up), though I guess it is the standard HPT structure. I know that the HPT event in Turning Stone was a great structure which should be warranted for that kind of buy-in.

Re: Detroit Poker Thread

Hello Detroit crew,

Could someone please help explain Motor City's break down of NL Poker games please?

http://www.motorcitycasino.com/PokerRoom/Overview
NO LIMIT POKER ROOM GAMES
$50-$200, $200-$500, $300-$2000 and $500 to No Max

What are the blinds for these table limits?

I will be coming to Detroit for the #Movement festival and looking forward to checking some poker games.

Staying near Hart Plaza. Is MGM my best choice? How late do games go? Expect to be busy this weekend?

Thanks in advance for your help.

50-200 buy in 1/2 blinds
200-500 buy in 2/5 blinds
300-200 buy in 5/10 blinds
500 - no max buy in - not sure if it is 5/10 or 10/20 blinds

MC has most tables going. I prefer MGM though. Games go on all night but start to slow around 2 am

What's a round by round limit game? Where they change the game every round?

Re: Detroit Poker Thread

+1 to mlborder's question. Do I understand (from piecing together this and past threads) that this is a $15/30 limit Omaha high only game? If so, wow. Didn't think I'd ever see LOH spread again in my lifetime. But sounds profitable.

Re: Detroit Poker Thread

LOl I used to play this at home game, what a great game. The only difference was that every time a round was played the next man in line chose the game. There was a 3rd option however that the old men called Greek where you had 3cards in you're hand instead of 2 or 4. Kinda like dealers choice, but it was a sick $15-30 game with real poker games for the most part at least.

Interesting on the round by round 15/30 limit game. How is it overall? How's the limit hold 'em play at MC?
