Games Edit

Hold Em:

$2/$4 $3/$6 $4/$8 $6/$12 $8/$16 $15/$30 $30/$60

7-Card Stud: 3/6 runs regularly, 2/4 may be spread occasionally

Stud/8: 6/12 runs most Fridays; it's a $1 ante $2 bringin. 30/60 runs during Fall Classic only, although they will spread it anytime there is interest.

Omaha/8: The 6/12 half kill gets spread fairly regularly. There is a 10/20 half kill every Monday.

34 Tables. Wait times are fairly short on weekends, unless you want to play 2/4 or 3/6. No waiting at other times, although the place gets pretty busy on Tuesdays for the Aces always win promotion. Expect 3-6 tables at each level 8/16 and below. If there are multiple 15/30 or 30/60 games, the second is generally a must move. There are no must moves at lower levels of holdem.

Holdem games are very soft at all levels, although the 30/60 can feature a mix of some of the best and worst limit players anywhere.

The O/8 and Stud/8 games are usually tight and nitty, with the same gang of old guys passing money back and forth.

Rake Edit

2/4, 3/6, 4/8: 10% with max of $5.

6/12 Stud/8: 10% with max of $5.

6/12, 8/16: 5% with max of $5.

15/30, 30/60: 5% with max of $4 (as of 10/07, but expect this to go up [Still $4 in 7/09]).

Jackpot drop taken from all tables. Jackpot is aces full of tens or better, beaten by quads or better. Both hole cards must play. Promotions sometimes guarantee higher jackpots.

Atmosphere Edit

Room is very well run, with little tolerance for poor behavior on the part of players or staff. Dealers are fast, courteous and efficient. You will be well treated.

Comps are $1.50/hr at 15/30 and up, otherwise $1/hr.

Food is fairly good (for a poker room) and you can eat at the table. Service is good. Soft drinks are complimentary, but alcohol is not.

The facility is now completely NON-SMOKING. If you want to smoke you will need to go outside.
