Default Foxwoods Questions -Yes I searched the archives

On the way back from Cape Cod the family is stopping in New London so the wife can take the kids to Mystic and I get a day (Saturday 8/20) at Foxwoods. The last time I was at Foxwoods was about 1995 (moved from CT to NJ) so I have a few questions.

1. I have read here that they run omaha8 and/or mixed stud8/omaha8. Would it be too much to hope for pot limit omaha? What limts do these games go off at on a Saturday?

2. I've read here that the few games that are spread fill up quickly. What time should I arrive?

3. Do I need a Wampum or whatever they call it card to play or can I just sit down?

4. Chip runners or buy in at cashier?

5. Parking? Any lots better than others for access to the poker room?

6. I'll check the web site for tourney info, but info would help.

7. Anything I've missed or forgotten?

If your there on the 20th stop over and say hello. I'll be the slightly pudgy late 40's guy losing his shirt.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Michael

1) No PLO or PLO8

2)as early as possible (earlier than 11am on a sat and you should be fine)

3) you can just sit down

4)no chip runners

5)arg i forget the name of the garage but you go left when you get to the front of the place and then go right (its either the grand cedar or some name that has pequot in it lol)

6)i dunno about tourneys

7) anyone raising the turn has the nuts

Rainmaker?

It's on the left coming from I-95 (which the OP will probably be doing, via Providence) -- should be about the 2nd left in the casino, and I think it says "Rainmaker Entrance". Coming from Norwich/Hartford/I-395 (which you should also take from say New Haven), it's about your third right. I'm not counting the casino employee parking, but the next light after it.

More Foxwoods poker info here, and hopefully don't go with your heart set on playing Omaha immediately because those games do turn over slowly. But if you're willing to play a couple of hours of HE, getting there at 10 or 11 a.m. on Saturday should be OK. It's been less of a madhouse lately thanks to the summer weather.
