I'm coming/rooming alone, so feel free to come and say what's up if you see me. I'll most likely resemble one of these 2 things.

Just to clarify a few things:

1. Don't lie at the border. Declaring does not cost money.

2. The satellite turn-around time has greatly improved over last year. The casino cannot be blamed if there are 18 names on the list for a 10-man SNG and only 9 people show up. Trying to fill that last seat can sometimes take time. Be reasonable.

3. Yesterday (Friday) there were 6 tables in use for the 20-man $640 satellites. As soon as a satellite was down to just one table, and there was two available tables to use, another 20 names were called (of which, usually only 14-17 people showed up). The last $640 ended approx 5:40am saturday morning.

4. Tennis courts will be at least 10 mins DRIVE from the casino.

5. $1200 satellites are running now and will continue to run 24-hours a day (based on interest) utilizing up to 8 of the 16 tables in the room (again, based on interest) until noon on October 26th.

6. Friday night there was two 5-10NL games, a 10-20NL and a 10-25NL. And the action was pretty crazy. Fully stocked aquarium.

7. Oh yes... I do work at Fallsview. Feel free to ask questions and make comments.

Why do I feel like you might be the same person as the one on the other board? Anyways, the problem with the load time isn't the fault of the players-there is no reason that the things that happen once the players sit down (getting down all the names/cards, getting payment, etc) should take the 15+ minutes like it did last year. Announce names, first person to the table gets seat 1 and so on, have them have their money/satty ticket out, get all of the money, shuffle up and deal, done.

BadPlayer,

If you are connected with the floor staff and the poker room @ Fallsview I would highly recommend you look into what options you are allowed re: spreading private games.

Last year we tried to get a 5/5 PLO game going and it took almost an hour of begging and complaining before we were able to play, which included for a good 45 minutes refusal to spread anything but NL omaha.

That same 5/5 PLO game when it finally got off the ground ran for the rest of the week, with larger average pots relative to the 5/5 NLHE games.

I am just insinuating that there are going to be a lot of online players (generally drunk) that will want to spread random games that involve lots of tipping.

Examples: 1/2 NL with no cap on buyin, 5/5 PLO, mixed games

I'm just warning you in advance because last year the staff wasn't nearly as accomodating just due to general unpreparedness, and I hope the staff this year is more prepared to do this as otherwise (I think I can speak for the online majority) our time is better spent playing online, doing videogame propbets and visiting the strip clubs.

At least something to please consider =) ty in advance

Although we try to be as "accomadating" as possible, players need to be prepared that they are visiting a different gambling jurisdiction then they may be used to. In Ontario, gaming is offered only by the government. That being said, our Gaming Commision is reknowned for being one of the strictest. If a staff member is relunctant to accomodate you and offer a game that we do not normally spread, it is most likely that we are awaiting approval for it or confirming that it is even possible. I will boldly come out and say that there is a slim-to-nil chance of there being a PLO game offered this year. My apoligies. There will also not be any mixed game tables (as these are NOT approved by our gaming commision).

Please do not look at as "unpreparedness"; we are just working within the parameters of our regulators.
