Re: Sacramento, CA (Capitol Casino, Thunder Valley, Casino Royale, Limelight)

I'll be in town next month for work, I saw on their (dated?) website that Limelight spreads lowball Tuesday and Wednesday...

Does this game run? What're the limits?

Or should I just stick to Capital O8 like I did last trip?

There is a site called poker atlas that shows all current tables and spreads in different areas. It seems to be up to date for sac.

Stones tried it for a while, the Derby (now closed) tried it, FLB tried it, TV tried it but for whatever reason there just aren't a lot of PLO players in Sac.

Stones has been popping all week.

They are running $110 satellites tonight and tomorrow night. Top finishers get seats into the main event. The main event has 3 day 1s, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and combined day 2 on Sunday. It's a $450 buy-in with 40 minute rounds.

Manteca is the only place Ive found in the Big Valley that runs a regular PLO game..Wed and Fri..No max on the buy in and the stacks are usually pretty LARGE..

I'll be making the long ride to Colma for Thursday PLO ..

Sac with nothing I guess..

I played there two weekends ago for the first time. My 1/3 table at 8pm on a Friday night had 3 people who definitely played very regularly, and maybe 2 old fish (both who bought in for $100).

The games didn't seem great. Can you make a living playing here?

Depends on what you consider 'a living'.

Not any sort of living one should aspire to.

I've always considered sac cash games to be pretty weak, I don't live there but based on my small sample lot of regs lot of omcs. I mainly go for tourneys from time to time

Re: Sacramento, CA (Capitol Casino, Thunder Valley, Casino Royale, Limelight)

How is the $2/5 during the weekday day shift been lately at TV? It's been a while, but last time I was in town, they had been struggling to get the game going. Does it not run at all, or is it hit or miss? I know Stones is the place to play these days, but my question is specifically regarding TV. Thanks.

If anyone is a current or past prop up in the Sacramento area, willing to share some information, I'd be very grateful for a PM.

How deep are you trying to play? All three major places have $1k+ 2/5.

So Thunder has promotions alongside Monday night football - 5:30-10pm, splash pots, $100 drawings, etc.

I literally saw a guy sit down with $100 and blind away for 5 hours to around $15, I think he played one hand outside of his blinds.

Everyone is pretty weak tight, maybe give it a shot next Monday.

Re: Sacramento, CA (Capitol Casino, Thunder Valley, Casino Royale, Limelight)

Does anyone know the tax rules if any for winnings in Canada as an American.

In the United States if you win a poker tournament the casino is required to have you fill out a W2-G and they report your winnings to the IRS for any amount over $5,000 after buy in is subtracted.

If you cash in a tournament in Canada does the poker room in Canada have you fill out any such forms? Do they do any reporting to the United States IRS?

Just curious asking for a friend.
