re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

It's a nice place to go to take a break, a bunch of couches, TV's, free drinks and sandwiches ( only three different ones though but the roast beef is good) If you go up the stairs near the windows, as you look into the casino with your back to the windows, it's all the way down to your right.
And Michard, I would assume they have rooms for the big high rollers (like every other casino) where they can get anything they want; legal or not that they don't advertise.

They're now Dream Points (Wampum I guess is now politically incorrect). The rule is that your points expire after a year, but if you ask for a new card (which you'll need), you can ask for them to be restored.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

Well...played Friday and Saturday and I still don't think I've recovered! In fact I was so tired that we ended up leaving earlier then planned because I knew I wasn't my playing my best.

This was the first time that I played a couple of different sessions with breaks in between at FW so got a chance to experience different tables there. For the most part I enjoyed myself and ended up break even because I didn't stay long enough to give myself a chance to come out ahead.

Reed, I know I saw you on Friday night but whenever I went by you were involved in a hand, (my boyfriend was playing a table near you - I wasn't stalking you ). Groton I think you were at my table for a little while Saturday but not sure if that was you.

I have to say that from not only this weekend but all the times I've played there, I am not at all happy with the dealers. Friday afternoon for instance there where several issues that came up that involved the dealer, (different dealers in each case expect for one who kept having to be corrected by the players). The worse part is just that they just don't seem to care. I know they have to share tips and all but they are still being paid to do a job and it would be nice if they did it correctly with a hint of enthusiasm.

On the same table an issue arose between two players involving whether a players movement was a check or not. It got really heated with some players at one end of the table defending one player and the other end defending the other player. (I kept my mouth shut even though I was sitting right in the middle of the two). Instead of the dealer calming things down she got into it as well and the floor was called who did little to mediate the situation. He certainly had an attitude like he couldn't be bothered with the whole thing although he did whisper something to the dealer and she calmed down only slightly. Even though two of the players involved left, one of which was the most confrontational, all of this and the other kind of put me off and that's when I took my first break.

Having said all that though, there are two dealers which are excellent. One is an older gentleman and the other is a young woman who is I believe Native American. Both control the cards properly and keep the game moving with efficient professionalism. I really wish I had gotten the woman's name and had had a chance to comment to the floor because I think she really is the best dealer they have.

I should be heading down there again for a day trip on Saturday. Then in a couple of weeks will be staying from Sunday through Tuesday so I can hopefully get better play in when I have a chance to get more rest in between sessions.

Has anyone played with the huge guy who wears overalls and talks non-stop about his SNG bad-beats? He looks like he should be on a farm in Idaho..?

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

You talking about Mike, wears a Jagermeister hat. White goatee!?!? This guys the man, been at the final table of many tournaments with him. Anyone want to try and have a meet and greet 2+2 sit n go down the woods, wait til a full one opens and have 10 of us sign up!?!? We should make a date and do this. I'll be down there on Wednesday, going to the Contender Season Finale @ MGM Grand, comped tickets and rooms are nice, then heading down to AC for the Ceasar's tournament's and the Borgata Wednesday 15k guarantee.

That maybe true but I was there about two months ago and they went downhill IMO. They used to be the bomb.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

Any one going to be around Wednesday 2/25- Saturday 2/28? I'll be at the 'woods playing the 5/10 Limit tables and as many of the daily tournaments as I can fit in.

Keep an eye out for a (I'm sure one of the many) unkempt-long-hair-Hawaiian-shirt-wearing-guy. I may also be sporting douche-tastic sunglasses.

Always enjoy running in to a fellow 2+2er - so give a shout.
