I assume you mean PLO as I've never seen O8 spread in the casinos I frequent.
PLO runs sporadically at the Deerfoot Casino. I would say his best bet is to call the Deerfoot Casino on a Friday or Saturday to see if they have any games running. They should have a 2/5 if a game is running. I've never really seen PLO running at Stampede Casino, but it's recently been re-branded as Cowboys Casino, so they might have some games running. The Elbow River Casino has a poker room, but they mainly spread LHE, so I've never set foot in there. A couple other casinos in the city (Grey Eagle and Cash) are dumps ---- I've only been to them once ---- doubtful they would have PLO running.
I've only played about 3 times in Calgary because I have a real disdain for 9 or 10 handed PLO. The variance is high (shocker I know) but the players are generally terrible so that makes up for it.
