hows this place?
bump, they are still playing on thurs-sat....dont know how, but i dont care
had a little free time so i went and played in the 150 deepstack tourny. Solid blind structure and started with 40k in chips. about 50 people entered....I min cashed when I check raised shoved with 2nd pair when I thought the guy was weak. He snapped called with 3rd pair, lol.....caught trips on the turn
Cash game was sick (awful, weak-tight and loose-passive)....I sat down next to a guy who had a "championship" ring on his finger from playing basketball at Bridgewater St., HAHAHA....one hand in he admitted to me he was a "maniac at the table" and after seeing him play a few hands, he wasn't lying.
about 10 hands in im in the BB with K's....folds to the maniac in the SB who makes it 15. I smooth call trying to get tricky and a K comes on the flop and a dry board. He leads 20 I raise to 50 to make it look like im making a play he shoves and I snap call, he turns over 2-3 off....ship it
another 10 hands or so in the maniac has since rebought and worked his stack up to about 300...3 limpers (including the maniac) I make it 15 with Jh 8d because im trying to get more action at the table, lol.....maniac only caller. Flop comes 9h 10h 2h. He bets 20 i smooth call. Turn comes 3h, he bets 40 I smooth ( i probably should have raised, but whatever). River comes Ah and he insta shoves for 194
. I think about "im a maniac comment" and the fact that his shove was just plain weak, and I call after about 10 seconds of thought. He didnt have a Heart and i took another monster from him...ship it!...played about another 45 minutes and left.
its nice when it works out that way.....If you have any type of poker skills and avoid the bad beats, stupid plays you could make a dollar or two at this place easily
word is when their permit runs out at the end of august, they are moving the room to another location down the road
It is what it is......
