Re: Detroit

Anyone know if Firekeepers is changing the structure next month back to how it was for their Sunday $400? Seems that changed the structure to accommodate the high turnout and it became a hyper turbo relatively quickly.

Re: Detroit

Lets get through the MSPT first TB9 ... I will be spending more time there in October so I will inquire. The MSPT being a 2-day event carries a much better structure of course.

They need to decide if they want more players or a longer running event. There was a much bigger percentage of re-entries in the last event, but I'm not sure it would be a deterrent if they stopped allowing the re-entry option. GL

Thank you. I mentally blocked out the MSPT because I'm busy and can't play in it. Good luck to those that are playing. Let me know if I you can

I see a 2-5 RxR NLHE/PLO running at MCC. Is this a new thing? What kind of action is it seeing?

Jetfeul,

I played in the 2-5 RxR on Thursday night and it was a good time. I believe Max buy in was same as NL 2-5 at $800. People were reloading frequently and it was not uncommon to see 2-3 players at the table with over $2k stacks. The Omaha rounds got a lot more action and bigger pots than the NL. What killed the game around 10:30 pm was the start of a new table 5-10
PLO (3-4 players left the table at the same
Time and the game died down).
I would definitely do it again since you still have a shot at the Bad Beat jackpot during the NL rounds.

Re: Detroit

Pretty sure the 2-5 RxR was the Tuesday 'game of the day' for awhile, perhaps they brought it back for Thursdays? Could be they just had and interest list that took off as well.

With the BBJ where it is .. 882K .. some of the PLO guys may be trying to bait some NL players into a PLO game. I've heard that some of the PLO is down since some of the regs are playing NL until BBJ hits. GL

Re: Detroit

What would be the best poker room to visit in detroit? Motor City, Greek town, Or MGM? I heard Motor City has a big bad beat going on right now but curious if these rooms are separated from the rest of smoking in the casino? If not what room has the least smoke?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Detroit

Greektown has the least smoke. Fewest number of players too.

MGM has some more, but it's a bit better. Good action and a decent number of players.

MCC has by far the most smoke, and the most players. But your tables are going to be hit or miss with the gigantic BBJ. Some will be nit-fests.

Also, if you come into town and play for 6 hours and hit the BBJ, **** you.

Greektown and MGM are on Bravo to see what's going on. You don't really need to worry about that with MCC as they always have tables going. I think MGM has some free food in their new room but MCC has some food (vultures abound) and free drinks all the time.

I'm not bothered by smoke too much but MCC has by far the most. GL

I don't play during peak times but there was maybe 5-10 people on the 1/2 list at 1:30am Saturday but I just walked in and sat down at 2-5. When I left around 11am the lists were more in the 20 person range.

Re: Detroit

Lots of donkeys playing cash at FK tonight thanks to the MSPT.

Was short ($80) at 1/2. Guy UTG opened for $15. I had AKs so I just went all in and he called. Board was 44JA6 rainbow. He had K4o. He also slow rolled me.

/bad beat story

I played at a few other tables and people were donating everywhere.

Wish I had seen this yesterday. The 'owner' was at FK playing cash.

2/5 game was excellent .. saw DutchBoy on PLO as well. Wish I could just spend the whole weekend down there.

Tournament went down in flames at 600-1200 (Level 10?) with only about 12K left I limped SB 5-ways PF and c/shoved with a OESD and BD flush, got the flush card but .. no mas.

Was cruising along 20K up to 52K in Level 4 when I Gii PF KK v QQ for 28K .. Q on River and then basically card dead the rest of the time. They moved 3 previous FT players to our table at the same time ... didn't help.

They were having some computer issues but I think about 40 out of 250 advanced to Sunday ... Which I think they did OK with moving the start time up to 1200. Certainly LOTS more cash rake for Thursday. Cash was never shut down during the tournament, but I would think it will be the next 2 days for at least a few hours.

Maybe back on Sunday for some 2/5 but can't try again due to commitments .. GL

Re: Detroit

Reference only : K4o vs. AKs 22.6%. K4o vs. any two cards ( or a table napkin) 52.3%. #notamathguy
Pro Tip : anyone brave enough to go to MCC, call ahead. BBJ is somewhere north of 899K

I'm not astonished that his hand won. I'm astonished that he opened for $15 UTG with K4o and called off $65 more.

It was my second hand at that table, too. Being a rec player on a budget... I think it's back to the micros online for me for a while. lol

Looks like Reno's East is going through either a suspension or lost a charity (or two) booking until November. Don't want to read into this either way as there are a number of options.

Reno's West is still up and running ... GL

More news that I received from a reliable source yesterday ... The Reno's management pulled the plug on hosting the poker AT BOTH LOCATIONS when a patron got robbed in the parking lot at one of the locations.

Gaming has indicated that if the Supplier can find an alternate location that they will expedite approval so the charities that have current licenses can have a place to go.

Gaming also indicated that all was 'fine' at the old Jackson location ... before it wasn't. GL
