Re: Detroit

FK 1/3 PLO (match the stack) runs every Thursday and Saturday regularly, most times there will be a feeder table as well. There is a PLO tournament on Thursday. It can run on Mondays or Fridays depending on who is around. The action can be extremely high depending on who is there. They were actually running a 5/10 ($250 cap per street?) PLO last Thursday but the dealers were indicating that the 1/3 game was playing bigger. Both games had a list through midnight last Thursday.

I would say that there is a core group of 20-25 PLO players there and some games will have as much as $20-30K or more on the table. There is a mix of super nits and action players ... so it just depends on how the list came through that day. The game is usually up and running by 400 or so.

Can you make $$? I think so if patient and I think the l/r PF needs to be used a bit more often than you would like. Some regs will check it down with each other and most will RIT if you ask. FK will RIT, but only HU. You must show your cards to RIT as well. The match the stack option WILL be used by 5-6 of the regs, including reloads when felted.

Just like any other casino, players will load up both the PLO and 2/5 lists which can cause some issues with a 2/5 table almost breaking to start a PLO game on Fridays. Not sure why they don't do more RxR but it's rare. GL

Re: Detroit

FK PLO is a great place to make $$$ once you become familiar with the player pool. Some of the better players will introduce more variance to the game if they are stuck/drunk so don't be scared money if you get deep and it starts playing a little high.

I was told a reg re-bought for five figures a couple weeks ago to get un-stuck and managed to do so. It's a fun game.

Re: Detroit

What's up, guys?

My name is James, former poker professional. I'm looking for a staker in the Metro Detroit area for live cash and/or tournaments.

I've sold a bunch of stuff in the 2p2 marketplace before without issue including a 30k score.
Had a very successful online career, profiting roughly 300k.

Hit me up.

Re: Detroit

My name is Turd, a finance professional. I'm looking for a staker in the Metro Detroit area for live cash and/or tournaments.

I've never sold stuff in the 2p2 marketplace before and therefore never lost a dime for any of my backers.

Had a mediocre online career, losing roughly 3k.

Hit me up.

Re: Detroit

Hey all:

Motorcity Casino has a bad beat jackpot of about $815k now. That is by far and away the largest I've ever heard of or seen in person. The requirement is that quads are beaten by quads. Each player must have a pocket pair.

When I left the room at 2:30 AM, the action was still going strong.

They have games running 24/7 now, and not just 1 or 2 games....During more normal hours the room is packed. Lots of people chasing the bad beat.

Anybody know of/hear of a larger bad beat?

Re: Detroit

Anyone who hears what happens on this as it's going on today (email from yesterday) please post in here and let us know.

Quote:
Tomorrow, PPA’s executive director, John Pappas, will testify in support of newly introduced legislation in the Michigan House of Representatives to authorize internet poker (iPoker) and other forms of internet gaming (iGaming).

The hearing is taking place at 10:30am on Wednesday, September 13th. With your help, John can convince these lawmakers to pass a bill this year. Can you spare just 60 seconds between now and tomorrow to send an email to your representative. They will be at the hearing tomorrow and need to hear from you before John Pappas testifies.

This is the first time the Michigan House of Representatives has ever discussed legalizing iPoker and iGaming. Please step up and support our efforts in Michigan by letting your lawmaker know you care.

Proud to Play,
Poker Players Alliance

Re: Detroit

Well you may have been able to watch it on stream at the time of your post .. You can also order various media formats and have it sent out in the mail.

I believe the Senate has already gone through this process once but it finds a way to get buried in the legislative process. Same as the new rules for Charity Poker. These were 'passed' overwhelmingly by both House and Senate and have now been buried in the Regulatory Committee which has to make sure that this new law doesn't violate any other laws before it goes to the Governor ... who really doesn't want to sign it!

Montreal Playground just hit one for over 1.2M CAD (close to 1M USD).

Re: Detroit

Really doesn't matter. State based internet poker is so awful it's basically the same as not having it. I was playing 6+ hours a day on Black Friday and I'm shocked we are still in the position we are all these years later. Americas card room sucks, Bovada sucks, they all do. Anything short of pokerstars exactly how it was 5 years ago is a total failure. I assume if you are a cash player these small little BS sites are fine. But if you are (were) a tournament player or SNG player, the state based casinos are lol.

They have something in there where they can share the player pool with other states that have online gambling so that opens things up a little.

Re: Detroit

MCC had 30 person lists for 1/2 and 2/5 at midnight tonight. Had about 5 games going in the slot machine area when I got moved into the main room around 130am. I can't even imagine how crazy it is during peak hours. I'm glad I'm a midnighter.

Re: Detroit

Anyone been to greektown this week when little Caesar arena opened? Curious how parking is downtown in the structure and if they make you pay even if you're just going to the casino to gamble.

I haven't, but even when they're charging for parking you can get in for free if you have enough points on your card, or they'll give you a voucher.

Re: Detroit

Greektown is even further away from LCA than Ford/Comerica, but I can see that it could attract some free loaders that may want to hit up Five Guys on their way to the arenas. I don't think they did much enforcement during Wings games at JLA so starting it up for an arena further away would seem odd. Things change.

I would be more worried about MCC and MGM ramps going forward ... Something like you get play/food credits if you bring your ticket into the casino. Do you make people pay on the way in or the way out? Both stink with probably 'on the way in' being the worse of the two options. Perhaps you pay less if you flash your casino card at time of payment. GL

PS .. MCC BBJ is at $835K as of this morning ...
