Windsor on the weekends?
Can anyone please tell me what the action is like at Casino Windsor on the weekends, how many tables they have open and generally how long the wait is?

I'm particularly interested in what NL games they have going; 1-2, 2-5, 5-10 and whether or not there is any PLO. I'm sure there probably isn't since the HUGE game is at G'town on Sat.

I haven't been to Windsor since the poker room opened so I'd like to hear any input.

Thanks in advance

There NL games are pretty loose. You generally have to make a huge pre-flop raise to reduce the field. Usually everyone at the table likes likes to see the flop regardless of what it costs. Pretty funny, actually.
If you play NL and there's an old dude, I mean ancient, raising every hand, that means he has nothing. I've never seen a more readable person. He raises pre-flop, bets the flop, turn and river with nothing, yet, well, I guess he folds good starting hands cause I never seen him turn up a good hand except 66, and he stopped betting after the flop.
EDIT: Let me clarify, he looks like the old guy from the Party Poker commercial "The party's just getting started" and he bets more aggressively when he's holding crap. He should just wear a shirt that reads "I'm a donkey." If you've seen the PP commercials, you'll know him. Oh, and he will reload until he's out of cash.

Let me know, maybe I'll join you. Greektown, across the river, features a pretty easy game as well.

It's a small-time, dingy, poorly managed and badly staffed dumpy cardroom filled with overtaxed and overraked players who will, as a previous poster correctly pointed out, call your $20 raise just to see the flop. Fairly big games do happen rarely, when a couple of the bored Motowners come over and heat it up, but in general the action sucks farts.

I hope that wasn't too negative.

I wouldn't call it dumpy, but you generally have to wait a long time, but the games are unbelieveably easy. The staff does suck. The time charge is typical of the midwest. I've only been there a handful of times, though, I prefer Greektown.

The games are low limit for the most part. On Sat nights they get an occasional 5-10 or 10-20 blind NL going.

The action's good due to the under age kids that can't gamble or drink in the Detroit. The room is nice, the rake is high, and you have to beat the exchange rate when converting back to US. If you like it and are going to play regularly, I suggest keeping a canadian bankroll. The games are very profitable.
