Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

What is the "one big live poker venue" you are referring to Treehand?

I am in Peru now and the 3000 Sol buy-in game at Atlantic City was the biggest game I've seen so far.

Well I heard the pokerstars latin American poker tour stops there so figured it wasn't a small poker room. Would you recommend peru? I'm not too bothered about live so no worries for me but would be nice to get some live PLO, they have any games going there?

Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

Hey 2+2.

Any poker players in Medellin, Columbia these days?

I'm a Las Vegas local and will be heading there with some friends Feb 22-27 for some fun.

Any recommendations for places to play for a night on the weekend? We are not going to Medellin to play poker.....there are other distractions the seem more interesting.....but it would be cool to splash around for a night with the locals if there is a good, fun game.

We are staying at an Airbnb in Poblado right by Parque Lleras. Any recommendations (from a casino, to places to eat, discos with hottie, cool bars with live music,) from any locals would be sweet.

Thanks in advance...

Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

Hey guys, I have a Colombian friend who said it's cheaper to wire money to Colombia than it is to just bring money in and exchange it there for pesos. This seems weird to me, can anyone confirm/deny? (I'm from US)

Gringo groups on Facebook have some decent places at good prices. I just found a decent place on airbnb, but generally airbnb is more expensive

online sports betting is now legal here and i'm sure online poker won't be far behind. could be quite fishy when they get it running.

Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

Updating this thread in case anyone comes looking. Strong expat home game scene in Medellin. I played at casino Rio, they are running two games, a 2k/5k (150k min) and a 5k/10k (500k min) no max on either table. Games apparently run monday-friday. Expat games run sat&sunday.

In general, medellin is quite nice. Weather is good, women are beautiful, food is .. affordable .

Wouldn't really recommend it without basic spanish, but a fine place if you want to learn. You can also get by with no spanish if you stick to poblado area. A bit more expensive and a lot more gringos and businesses catering to them. Also where the casinos are.

Budget for a room is 800k-1.5M depending on what you are looking for, furnished apartments start at about 1M and go up as high as you like. For about 4M a month you can have an extremely nice place with 24 security, etc.

Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

Hey gang,

I'll be coming to Medellin for a couple month in early April and will be itching to play some live poker. I've read about the Rio Casino being the spot to go, but wondering if anybody has any up to date (2019ish) info on the poker room there (stakes, hours, variety of games, level of competition), it would be much appreciated!

Also if anyone wants to get some drinks or hit the city in any fashion, let me know!

Tchau!

Re: **** Official Medellin Colombia Thread***

On the off chance that any NLHE (ideally live) player in Medellin is looking to try their hand at coaching, I'd like to volunteer as guinea pig. I can dedicate ~2 hours daily to study, review and online practice daily and about 1-2 sessions of live games per week. Would like to play live games at max 5/5 blinds, ideally 2/5 or lower.
