re: List of O8 games

We used to have pl08 at the Atlantis, but the fish got destroyed very fast. So now they do limit 10/20. Sad games.

That's usually what happens in PLO8 isn't it? It could be the worst of both worlds for sustainability: The sharks have huge edges, as in big-bet games against neophytes, but also have the split pot nullifying variance.

re: List of O8 games

But but but but, PLO8 is so much more fun than FLO8, even for the droooling fish!... If only we could ever get these socialists out of the office, and get the U.S. economy back to kicking ass. Well at the very least there would be a chicken in every PLO8-comrade's pot!... Wishful thinking, ldo, ...

Poker Nation, a strip mall card room, had an amazing 1-2 NL O8 game on Wednesday nights but they got shut down...not sure if the game moved somewhere else or not.
FYI the casino az 8/16 game always has at least 2 or 3 regulars who check it down against each other and only play vs outsiders

Live 5/5 plo8/plot alternating every 1/2 hr on Mon andam Wed nights at Buffalo Thunder in Santa Fe, NM. Also 1/2 PLO8 on Friday afternoons. These are very loose games. I know it's outta the way but fly to Albuquerque and take a vacation in Santa Fe. Pots of 3-4kthe can be had on just the 1/2 PLO8 on Fri game and I've heard Mons and Weds are wild w straddle and next player often blind pot bet

AKQJ10- I am in SoCal now and will very soon be able to give accurate updates about O8 down here for anything that has not already been mentioned. How have the PLO8 games back in Detroit been in general, to the Detroiters out there?

It would be nice to have a report from anybody playing this game. Is it the old Mirage crowd? Are they getting players from the V or the Orleans? Any action?

I like the Wynn and would like an excuse to play there.

H/L. I played there last week. The weirdness is, it's literally half-kill, which means playing a kill hand at $9/18 with yellow $2 chips.

That's good to hear, even though 5/10 is a bad structure. The one time i visited the Wynn there were two games running, a 1-2 NL and a 4 LHE, so i was left with the impression that it had lost virtually all its luster. Nevertheless an attractive place to play.

The 10/20 at the Peppermill is a turd. $12 an hour rake per person and game is so nitty, I heard a person say it's 3 bb/100 just to break even.
False. Just played it last weekend. It was great. $6/half isn't bad if you're GUARANTEED to win

Perhaps i'm missing something, but i don't see a list of actual games running. For example, i pulled up the Casino Arizona page:

Quote:
The 50-table Casino Arizona Poker Room at Talking Stick Resort offers daily Texas Hold'em, Seven Card Stud, and Omaha Hi-Lo live action poker games and No-Limit Hold'em Poker Tournaments.
Sounds about like every single poker room in the country's ad copy. I couldn't even tell you if CAZ has regular 7-stud games or not. I certainly can't tell the stakes of games from that. For another example, Greektown's listing doesn't even have a place for their corresponding ad copy, even though I happen to know they have a twice-weekly LO8 game.

So although i appreciate the suggestion i don't see PA adding a lot of concrete info. You'd still have no idea whether O8 games actually run or not.

re: List of O8 games

Well, it has all of the phone numbers, etc. all in one place for MP to use. I mean, obv nobody's going to call all of the Vegas casinos but in states that only have a few casinos, I think that site would be helpful. No big deal. Just thought it might help in the research.

Indeed. My reply is more a reflection of my disappointment with info not contained in the PA than a put-down of your helpful contribution.
