I'll be there the Thursday and Friday of easter weekend. If the shoe in Shreveport runs 20/40 then Ill check that out.

You can never tell with Winstar, but I've seen 15-30 LHE go at least once, and I know there are a few people that would get on board with 20-40 limit. There are a few ladies that play the PLO/PLO8 game that like higher limit games. Start the list, and hope the floors/brushes are feeling into it.

Alright, I might just try 15-30 as a happy medium, plus 20/40 is in the realm of taking a shot as far as my BR is concerned.

Also, once you start the interest list, hit the LHE tables, the PLO tables, and the 5-10+ tables and mention that there's a list. That will definitely get you some sign-ups.

Not much LHE going on at Winstar. Mainly just 4/8. I'd be shocked if you get anything that big running. Good luck.

A form of collusion in which two partners continually raise and re-raise each other in an attempt to trap opponents with an overwhelming amount of action.

The goal of whipsawing is to cause opponents to call one or more bets, and then eventually fold to the colluding players because the cost to stay active is made too high by the continuous betting. The whipsawing partners will typically share their combined winnings, removing any fear of continuously betting against each other.

Totally doable. It's about an hour and change. No idea about the tournament though.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Not a poker question but thought I'd ask here to see if I could get an answer from Winstar frequenters.

Does anyone know if they have the Shoot to Win craps machine made by Aruze at Winstar? I've heard it's considered a slot so thought there was a chance since they can't have actual craps there.

Just played it this weekend in Shreveport and it was a lot of fun because you could play smaller than at most live craps tables.

Thanks.

Spent last couple of days up there. My travel buddy is big into limit Omaha which used to run fairly regularly. Not even a list in 2 days from what I saw.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Just got back from 3 days playing at Winstar. Very nice tourney structures including the bounty turbo and very competent dealers.

In the bounty tournament the $100 bounty was actually just a $100 cash game chip. This is clearly a terrible idea and everyone complained multiple times about it. At least 5 different people just at my table accidentally put the chip in the pot. The floor / dealers were good about it though and let it slide. However I heard some stories about players getting screwed from it. Plus it opens up various angle shooting methods. I've played a few bounty tourneys at other casinos which had a special white chip which made it very easy.

Saw TJ Cloutier playing the 1k main, nice to see him away from the craps tables

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

Played here today/night. Actually pleasantly surprised at how well the room was run, and I tend to be very critical. The 2/5 action was great, 3 games running at one point. Having chip runners was a huge plus to the room, which many rooms do not have.

Only negative was what seemed like a room regular acting extremely childish and taunting other players. I wish the dealers had spoken up instead of me having to do it, but if they're a regular I can understand not wanting to bite the hand that feeds, etc...

I will definitely be back if my schedule permits it.

Re: Winstar World Casino (Thackerville, OK)

I used to get the promotional mailer of two free rooms once a month non-weekends, but I havent been down in a year and a half so I guess I dont get them anymore. Any tips on how to get this mailer again? It is very valuable to me otherwise rooms seem to be expensive. Looking to get down there next week

Play at the other casino most of the time when I go to Oklahoma so a few questions about winstar. Do they have a poker player rate for the hotels on fri and sat nights? If so how
Much is it and what is the process of getting it. Just looked up hotel rates there and the
Prices are mind boggelling
