Good luck!
Even though it's close, I actually haven't been there yet. Given that it's on El Cajon Blvd, I'm not expecting it to be much better than slightly above "shit-hole."

No offence T.

We were there last night, from about 10-12:30 I think?

Umm...not sure if it's changed much. When was "used to be", last week?

I walked in and the first thing I noticed was there was a lot of white chips - which I was surprised by, because I'm thinking HOLY SHIT this place, this tiny spot, what 25'x40' room with six or seven tables has that large of a game going where guys have stacks of Cali white $100 chips... and then I realized that the yellow $5 chips are so freaking worn out that they're white, and you can't see basically anything that used to resemble a print job on the faces or edges. (Ok I'll be honest, I didn't think they were really stacks of hundos). By the way, GaryH would be pissed that $100's are white in Cali. Dude would rage quit the state if he came to a cardroom here.



There were four games running when we got there. So we walked back to look at the lists and the brush stands up from the seat he has at what looks to be the 3/6 limit game right next to the desk, puts our name on the wait list for 2/3nl and sits back down at his game. I've never seen the on duty desk guy actively playing a game before.

Seems like everyone in this room knew each other, and it was a pretty friendly place. People were ordering food left and right too, which the waitresses were calling in from nearby places. They'd walk by with menus and ask if anyone wanted to order.

Anyway, had about a 20 minute wait, took my seat at the table. Like I said, friendly people. Especially the two vietnamese pals to my left who were chatting it up in their native tongue. Kind of annoying but I didn't say anything. Big sign on the wall about english only, but definitely didn't seem to be followed at all.

Game played very similar to 1/2nl or 2/3nl I've played elsewhere. Standard raise preflop would be to make it 10-12 to go. Action was fairly loose. I folded for a good couple hours and only got a couple decent starting hands. Played only a few pots outside of my blinds. Left up $10! Hells yeah making rent this week!

Got another chip for my collection of places I've played. Didn't take a $5 this time, for obvious reasons. $1s were in better condition.



If you don't want to drive 45min+ to Oceanside, and you're jonesing for a game, it works. I'd play here again if the mood fit and I was local.

Thanks for the TR, wouldn't have worked last night, I few back into town pretty late and was too tired to put a session in. I'll have to check the place out at some point soon, but it sounds like probably not the most +EV option in SD.

Starting a new thread about this so I don't derail this one.

Late '80s, early '90s. You know...20+ years ago, pre-pre poker-boom.

Sounds similar, typical clientele, same shitty chips/tables. Honestly, it used to have not-so-friendly players, so that's most likely an "upgrade". Even if they don't speak English.

Maybe people were just in a good mood last night. I'm not the most talkative person at a casino room table, so I personally didn't really carry any conversations. At home games I chat it up, but I usually do not talk much when playing with people I don't know. Seemed like I was playing with a table full of regs, so they did know each other for the most part. Doubt that place gets much traffic from out of towners.

I did sit on the immediate left of "Instant Replay Guy". You know, the one that almost every time a hand gets tabled at show down with a decent pot, he does the telecast instant replay for the rest of us at the table, in case we didn't see it. He didn't talk much, but when the cards were shown, he'd look for a moment and then "wow, he had AQ and then rivered it." Or this one gem when a bit pot was won, "oh, he played ace four, and bam, ace four ace flop. Nice."

Thank you, Instant Replay Guy.

I love to start arguments with those guys after the third or fourth time they do it. Once the dealer scoops the cards, "No, the flop was 8 2 9. You're thinking of the hand before."
There's always at least one other guy at the table who will back me up just to annoy the fucker.
