Well obv weekends are softer and there are more tables to choose from. But weekday evenings are usually pretty good too.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

I am gonna be working in Texas about an hour away from Winstar in January. Was wondering what min and max buy in was for the 1/2, 2/5 nl. Also wondering what the biggest limit holdem game is that run regularly? Any 5/10, 6/12, 8/16? Lastly, how is the turnouts for the weekly tournaments? Do they fill? Thanks in advance.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Min max at 1/2 is $100 to $200
Min Max at 2/5 is $300 to $500
Min Max at 5/10 is $500 to $2k

Only limit game that runs regularly is small 2/4 ($40 min buy in) Sundays tournament has about 100 runners. Friday's tournament I believe probably has like 60 or so. The structure is better in the Sunday tournament.

Actually the limit game that runs is 4/8 (2/4 blinds). You won't have any luck getting anything bigger going either, I've tried numerous times. There's a pretty sweet 20/40 limit game in shreveport on the weekends though.

Totally unrelated - I thought I saw a billboard that said that Winstar Casino was going to host a World Series of Poker event in January but I couldn't find anything on Google about it. Anybody know anything?

I'm off tomorrow, and had considered going up late afternoon to play cash games. But the tourney idea isn't bad either. Have you ever played it before? I am curious how many cashs games are actually running early in the day as I might bust out early. lol

Also, any idea what time is starts and it's buyin?

I see that it starts @ 11AM.... so, no I won't be there. Slept in too late to want to rush a shower and breakfast and drive an hour up there. However, I'll probably be up there to play cash later this afternoon. Good luck if you decide to play today!!

limit game is 4/8 usually 2-4 going.

Sunday tourney is by far the best structure and value, ($200+$30) steadily gaining traction, getting bigger each week, had 122, and 113 last two Sundays.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Had a pretty bad experience here last weekend. I played the 5/10 game and saw two guys colluded. Told the staff and the floor men and they looked at each other and didn't do anything..

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

I don't know their names, but one of them was a short asian kid who always look mad. The other guy was someone who i have never played with. I'm not going into details about the hand because it is already said and done. I'm just disappointed that the whole table agreed on what they did yet the floor ignored it.

I've heard some really good 2/5 players say they won't play 5/10 unless there's a lot of non-regulars in the game because of this.

I'm calling BS on this. I have never heard anyone complain about a problem such as is claimed here. The room has too many experienced players to put up with collision. Plus since when is "the hand is over and done so I'm not going to discuss it" a valid reason for not giving details? EVERY hand discussed here is over and done before it is posted here.

Your definition of really good and my definition are probably not the same but most of the good 2/5 players that stick to 2/5 feel they can make the same or more at 2/5 than at 5/10 (with less risk) or are under-rolled to play 5/10.

I will say that certain 5/10 players will push the boundary of what is acceptable at a poker table, primarily with their table talk because they feel they can get away with it. I wouldn't go as far as to call that collusion though. Also, the good regs do not partake in this table talk nor do they collude in any way. I know for a fact that they are always on the look out for cheating and if discovered would try to nip it in the bud right away.

Yes, I heard the Monday/Wednesday splash pot was replaced with the 2x bad beat jackpot. Smart move, IMO. (I hope it's not just during the two 4 hr windows.)
