I was told you need to earn 2500 points in a six month period to get that card, but its not a poker card but a general gambling card. It would be hard to earn just with poker, most Platinum card holders will earn it through table games or slots.

Hey everyone...I'm hoping to get down to Foxwoods more often.

Its a bit scary, but I think I have to try to supplement my income with some 1/2 NL.

I used to play the 5/10nl there all the time when I was under 21 and lived in boston... What a sick game that was... Even the "regulars" were terrible.

It will survive seeing that they can still get 3 to 4 20/40 LHE tables going. A lot of the 20/40 regulars sit in that game waiting for a seat in their main game. The 5/10 kill game is the one that will probably be in trouble. If Mohegan had any brains they should utilize the $3 chips and spread 6/12 half kill.

As posted elsewhere, FW has no problems with 4/8 and three 20s and nothing in between. You need the middle games to form a pipeline to the big ones.

That is correct, assuming you already have your black card, you'll have to average 32 hrs a week for 6 months to get it just playing poker. To see the benefits of the platinum check here:

I kept records of people I played the 10/20 with and there were at least 50 10/20 players who played regularly as of middle of last year. When I am at FW on Fridays and Saturdays (mostly playing 20/40) and I stop by the 10/20 tables to say hi, I know most of the players. So I would say no, most have not started playing 1/2 NL - and very few have started playing 20/40.

However, some of the donators in that game did stop playing and at least one I know of has started playing 1/2 NL. A loose LHE player might fare better at NL. But most of the loose 10/20 LHE players I knew were also very passive so I'm not sure how that would work out in NL.

I would guess that the problem is that the game itself is very tight and hard to win big consistently. And the trends may be that the game is starting later and ending earlier. It used to be that at least one 10/20 game would run through the night on Fridays anyway. Maybe its dying earlier. But I wouldn't count out the game for that reason. At the Borgata the only high limit game that runs through the night is the 40/80 and the 20/40 game didn't start until 11am on Saturday. But by Saturday evening there were at least 4 20/40 tables going.

My prediction would be that the 10/20 will run no problem on Fridays and the weekends. I have no idea what will happen during the week.

Well I didn't do that rigourously, but I started taking note of all of my favorite opponents who were playing in 2007 and don't play anymore, there are at least 12 of them who now don't come near it.

This is not a good sign. But it may not be as bad as it seems.

I found that there were a lot of one time wonders who tried the game and did horribly (in addition to some impatient 20/40 players who lit money on fire).

And I could have said almost the same thing in May of 2008 when I left the game - although I would have only been able to name 11...

Maybe the scales have tipped and there are far more good players than not. And it also may be that you are seeing far better players on average during the week than I saw on Fridays and Saturdays. But I hope for the sake of all the higher LHE games that the ranks of the 10/20 get replenished. Hey maybe there will be a new class of early retirees coming...

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

The 10/20 game is in fine shape, I think people are delusional about what the game used to be. The weekends there are still usually at least 2, sometimes 3 and rarely even 4. I have heard that the weekday games have been spotty but whenever I show up there is a game ( Fish Who?). The idea that this game is especially nitty or tough also seems to be blown out of proportion. The game tends to go all night on Saturdays as it did this week, but rarely does on Fridays anymore, part of the reason for this is the must-move system which protects the main game throughout prime time but hurts it later, instead of(for instance) 13 players one 6 handed game and one 7 handed game the must move will break as soon as it goes 5 handed and players will leave and so the game dies earlier. Don't get me wrong iif you are a smart thinking player who has abandoned the Foxwoods 10/20 I think you made a great decision and should not look back.

FYI Saturday night there were at one point 5 20/40 games with 2 main games lasting thru the night often with a list.

PS IF you are looking for me I am the guy sitting at the limit table complaining that I can not bet enough to protect my hand preflop.

I have seen PLO twice at Woods in the last two years. Mohegan gets it going occasionally.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

I play 4/8LHE - 20/40LHE, mostly 10/20 and of all the places I play (Borg, MS, FW, Home Games, Random others) the FW 10 game has slowed more than the others. I will also say that in all places I have noticed a move from many 10/20LHE players to the 1/2NL game. I find myself playing a ton more 1/2NL to follow the fishies. But my 2008 winrate was less than 0.5BB/hr so what do I know.

If Mohegan really wanted to draw crowds I agree they should use the $3 chips.
6/12 and 9/18 would do very well. But consistency is the problem there.
Sometimes they have 2/4 and 3/6 with nothing else.
Sometimes they have 5/10.
Sometimes 5/10 w kill.
Sometimes 10/20.
Sometimes 15/30.

Figure it out.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

I am planning on going the second week in march.

I plan on going home for spring break, and i was wondering if anyone has every played with/seen someone in a wheelchair play.

I play all the time at turning stone in NY, but i wanted to take my brother to a poker room. He's got cerebal palsy (sp?), and his wheel chair is electric. He has use of his hands and arms and what not, but its hard for him to handle cards/chips in a discrete manner, especially if the table is very low to the ground.

I see Reed always having a good amount of answers, so i'm wondering if this came up. I wanted to help him play limit, where i think it'll be easier cause its either "check, raise, fold, call"...there wont be any confusion in what his bet size is meant to be. I just want to flash him his cards once, and then handle the chips for him.

thanks

Hey Mj, I regularly help a guy who has a spinal cord injury, he has very little use of his hands So I gather and fold his hands for him. He also has to whisper to me what action he wanted to take and I handle the chips . He is able to look at them by himself though so if your Brother can do that, there definitely wont be a problem. If he can't, I can't believe they won't make a provision for you too flash them to him. I was still able to play next to him on a 1/2 NL table by the way.
One more note, we try to get in 5 and 6 seat, some dealers actually prefer doing all this themselves.

hope to see ya there
