Default Re: Chicagoland Poker on 1/6-7

i think it is 4 hours of play time for the poker room rate, but i could be mistaken. The rooms arent great, but when i go i dont really care about the room, I just dont want to have to drive home that night. I usually play there a few hours and then drive to resorts which is only about a mile away. Games at both are weak.

I am pretty sure that trump has more than ten tables.

goto the Resorts room instead, cleaner, chips are newer, games are juicy, better casino overall. There is no hotel but

Resorts definitely has a hotel. I have no idea what the rates are, but those 20 or so stories sitting next to the boat are definitely a hotel.

Resorts rates are typically $89 weeknight, $99-109 Fri night, $129 Sat. YMMV.

I only actually paid for a room once. The first time I ever went there. Every other time has been comped simply by asking for a comp for my room. I do play a lot though, maybe my 'points' has something to do with it.

Yes, I believe it's more like 15-18 tables.

Do you get comped from your poker play alone, or is it also based at tables and machines?

It's 44 bucks if you play 4 hours at the poker room M-F. You can call ahead as well for putting you name on the list.

The lowest limit game is 5-10, and there is no kill on the 5-10 contrary to another post the guy said.

They have 16 tables. 1-5 Stud, 2-10, usually 4 or 5 5-10 games going, 2 or 3 10-20 games going through a feeder system with a main table, a half kill on the 10-20 game. Usually 2 20-40 games going with a half kill, and 2 NL games 200 min 500 max buy in.

If your looking for the best poker room manager ask for Jay or Yanna (african american).

As far as the difference between Trump and Resorts :

Resorts: more friendly, nicer chips, good games, more tables
Trump : more space, eatery on same floor, have tourneys more often, but the chips do really suck trust me you will find out.

I play more at Resorts then Trump but its give and take.

Oh yeah on Saturday they play Omaha Hi/Lo 5/10 full kill only game in the state for Omaha and only day you will see it. Occasionally at Resorts you will get a 30-60 H.O.S.E game and even rarer is a 40-80 or 50-100 limit game but when they happen they usually last two days straight through

Also, if you are north of Chicago, the trip to Potowotami in Milwuakee may be worth it. For me, it is about an hour to both the Pot and East Chicago resorts. They spread every limit up to 20/40 and some NL. Every game I've ever played there has been juicy as hell.

[/ QUOTE ]

I only go to Potawatomi on weekends, I don't think they even start lists for 15/30 or 20/40 anymore. Often times, the 10/20 isn't even running. Everybody wants to play NL so the bigger limit games are dying. 10/20 is real good when it's running. NL has $600 max buy-in and has been good when I've played. Sometimes if you're lucky, there will be 2 NL tables (1 a must move). Some good players & sometimes you'll have 7 guys limping every pot.

Unless you get their real early or real late, expect to wait forever. You can call in up to 1 hour in advance now.

What? 20/40? And just what day, week, or month is that game suppose to ACTUALLY GO? NOT LATELY !! They can barely get a 10/20 going.
