Some people like to play long sessions and 2 am seems a bit early to close IMO.
Overall, poor job by Winstar IMO, they ****ed their players and their employees.
An opposite opinion:
I live in the DFW area, Texas Card House is nearly as far a drive as Winstar.
Given a choice, I'd much rather play in a casino than a inner city card room. Much safer inside and out.
From what I've seen, TCH offers very little if any limit action. Winstar always has limit games running. There are those who still prefer limit vs. NL.
What we've heard about Winstar reopening is only the plan at the time and still almost two months away. Things can and do change. Regardless, they could have a $20 rake and players would still be there.
