I see people jumped on the home game. Did you not also mention that you wanted to talk poker. Did you mean like a strategy session?

how's the new room at brantford?

do they still get 2+ 10/20 and at least one 20/40 going midweek all day?

Currently living up near tobermory, well up on the bruce peninsula, but thinking of a road trip down to brantford/fallsview for a week.

Interested in the midweek action as i know both fallsview and brantford are donkfested on weekends, as is rama and well, probably any other public card room for that matter.

Re: Toronto area regulars thread

Fallsview ftw Friday!!!!

I usually book a sweet deal on Travelzoo.ca
Make reservations at the Keg.
Wait for the GF to fall asleep
Head out to the poker room
Before I leave for the night or morning, grab a lost players card from the slots area to pay for parking.

Hope to see some of y'all there.

Never saw spread limit there, or in any other Ontario casino.

I keep hearing contradictory estimates of the driving time for Toronto to Fallsview. What's your experience? Others?

Great, but when is there no traffic? (Not a rhetorical question: I've heard that traffic tie-ups can be awful.)

Re: Toronto area regulars thread

I'm thinking of heading out to the Blue Heron from Whitby around 2:30pm tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon to play $5/10 or $10/20 Limit Holdem throughout the evening/night. Those games run regularly right? I'm the guy with the huge glasses and pink shirt, say "hi" if you see me.

Re: Toronto area regulars thread

Toronto - Niagara in the middle of the night is 60-75 minutes.
In typical traffic, two hours.
A lot of this is due to construction on the QEW.

May head down tonight for some 1/2 fun at Niagara.

Re: Toronto area regulars thread

Hey, I played the spread limit albeit for maybe 60-90 hands only. The players at the table were not relatively fond of it and we ended up breaking the table. The action was slow when I played. They started a spread limit Omaha game. That was crazy! Action was going crazy.

I play at the heron semi-reg. About a few times a month. Some 5/10 but mostly 10/20. Im out in Oshawa and would love a home game to go to as well as a strategy session.

No kidding! Omaha! I already thought the 20-40 game was wild.

Yah, this does not compare to 20-40 omaha. It is next level action. I saw a few pots well over 1k. I will stick to my 10-20 Limit for now lol.

Actually, I've won a couple of pots over 1k (and one over 2k) in the wilder 20-40 Omaha tables at GBH ...

Oh sorry sir. I haven't watched any of the 20/40 Omaha before. I just assumed that that pots were larger then that of 20/40. Probably because of the 100 dollar bets and raises.

Will be staying at Crystal Beach from July 1st to Aug 1st & grinding at Casino Niagara and Falls view. Although more money to be won at fallsview but I believe the people are nicer and fun to talk to at Casino Niagara. Lets try and get some 2P2 to play maybe go out to the bars! I do like to party as much as gamble.
