Oregon Poker

FWIW, wanted to share what I know of central coast area poker, and ask for any info you may have about other parts of the state, and southern washington.

1. spirit mountain casino--half way between salem and lincoln city. big poker room, daily 2/4-4/8K LHE, 1-2 and 3-5 NL...30-60 LHE on tuesday 1pm. good promos, high hands, rack splash on the hour into table pot. sunday 500 hourly high hand is usually 10-15 tables going. biggest room in state as far as i know, non smoking room. 2/4 is regular low limit no foldem, 4/8 is usually pretty tight. 1/2 NL pretty good action and fishy, no idea about 3/5 or 30/60. usually worth the drive if i have the whole day to spend. 1.5 hours from portland.

2. chinook winds casino. non smoking Lincoln city, north coast. regular 40 dollar 2-3 table tournies, noon and 530pm. 3-6 weekday afternoons, add 1-2NL on weekends. 18+ room, crazy kids on weekends and special events in town. room is pretty quiet, standard nit/fish mix, pretty easy NL...wilder on weekend, crazy loose. high hands during week, 50 every hour..AA cracked wins rack on sundays. small room, friendly staff, stop in if you are in the area, but go to spirit mountain if you're going just for a game.

3. 3 rivers casino. florence oregon, 1 hour east from eugene, central oregon coast. 3-6K, 2-4 NL. non smoking, but full bar service. played LHE once, crazy fishy bad players, posers. NL should be killer, 40-400 buyin. NL players that were there playing LHE were young i watch tv silly. can't wait to get back, new casino opened in Jan, nicest, best looking casino on the coast (havn't been to coos bay yet), incredible buffet.

4. eugene full house poker. poker country club by the university. guys at 3 river game were talking about a 5/10NL they just raised the min BI to 5K?? also have 1/2 NL, gonna try to check out this weekend or next, wife gone for a week. anyone heard anything about this? no rake, 25 monthly membership fee, all I learned from their website. 18+, lots of college kids, should be good.

any other ideas besides bar poker? just heard about a 1/2 NL game in newport, gonna check out as well, lotsa hoochie mommas at the bar ive heard, just found out about game.

is coos bay worth the trip? im thinking of hitting florence then coos bay the next day and check it out.

thanks
jeremy

Re: Oregon Poker

I know they are not on the coast, but some cheap portland games are in town if you are around..

Portland Players Club- Just got their live game shut down, but has tourney.

Bridgeview Rounders- Just getting started up, but they have deep stack tourneys and live games are running pretty much everyother day and they are extremely soft.

Re: Oregon Poker

30/60 at Spirit Mountain is next to imposable to get in. They run a live board, names never come off. 15 names at the top are never taken off. If they show up they get a seat by order of their names. Best I have ever done was to be 16th. This was by requesting the game 4 days early.

Coos Bay room is small and has one 1/2 or 2/5 running depending on the day. Game starts at 3:30 pm. Room closes at 2:00 am-------

Re: Oregon Poker

Also 7 Feathers, exit 99 on I5 has a 6 table walled off room.
3/6, 3/6 kill, 4/8, 2-10 spread limit, 1-2 or 2-5 no limit.
3/6 goes every day, super nitty, other games often go on Wed. and Fri. when they have freerolls, and sometimes on Saturdays and Sundays when they have their bi-monthly tourneys.
3/6 O8 full kill goes sometimes on Thurs, Fri. Sat. super nitty most of the time.

Actually, all of the games are nitty most of the time. YMMV

Re: Oregon Poker

Hey, so the best of all these rooms gameswise is spirit mountain and chinook winds right? Anyone attest to either of these, I might even roll on their old person bus tomorrow there oh ya!

Re: Oregon Poker

At Spirit Mountain are the 1-2 and 3-5 NLHE games running 24/7 or only during certain hours? What kind of demographic/skill level is there? I've been there a few times, but not for poker, and it's not really an short commute from many places.

Re: Oregon Poker

Spirit Mountain is by a longshot the most active poker room in Oregon. It's the only one I know of that usually has an Omaha game (4/8 Limit Half-Kill usually) and the 1/2NL and 2/5NL games are usually quite fishy.

Most of the time, though, I just took the extra half hour to drive (from Salem) to Chinook Winds - I started playing there since it was 18+ instead of 21+ and just got a feel for the place. There's usually just one NL table on weekends but it's often quite soft and the food at the deli/grill next to the poker room is good. If the game breaks early and you came from the east just head to Spirit and clean up the stragglers.

La Center sucks ass.
