I am going on Saturday for a concert, and naturally, I wanted to play some poker there. I can't seem to figure out what limits they have there, ecept that they start at 1-5 stud and go up to 1000-2000 or higher as required. If anyone has been there, or is able to suck any more info out of this uncontrollable beast called the internet, let me know please.

I heard from a guy at work today that it is not as big as the older casino in Niagara Fals, ONT, but luckily for me they are only about a block away from each other, so if I can't find a good game at Fallsview, I just mosey on up to Casino Niagara.

So I'm back,and i didn't end up playing at Fallsview, because the limits were too high for the amount of money I brought with me. They had 5/5 NL, and various limits from 5/10 to 20/40 i think 7 tables in all. After the concert I went to Casino Niagara(there is a shuttle that runs between the two and chips are good from one casino to the other) and got into a 2/4 limit game (they also had 1/2 NL and 3/6 limit, 10 tables in all). I started playingt around 12:30 AM and stood up to take my tired wife home at 2:00AM, up $31. Not too bad for an hour and a half. Up 15.5 BB. I tipped the dealers(they split the tips) $3 total, I think I won 4 pots outright(there were a few chop chops).

The biggest hand went like this:
I was in the CO with 77, 3 limped in front of me, I raised, and got calls from the blinds and limpers. (pot=12 BB)

Flop Q7Q

3 checks, I bet, SB raised, 4 folds, I reraised, SB 3 bets, I cap, SB calls (pot=20 BB)

Turn K

Scared of QK I check, SB bets, I call (pot=24 BB)

River 10

I check again, Sb bets, I raise, seeing he only had $1left, he called and flipped AQ like he had the nuts.(pot=29 BB) He says I got the Queen with the ace, and make to drag the pot. I just tell the dealer(who had made a few mistakes, "full house" and the other guy just stares at my 77 like they were going to attack him. So as I'm dragging the pot, he throws the dealer another $60 which he proceeded to lose.

There was only one player in the game that had me nervous, but I didn't play against him, as we were the only ones to fold alot. There was a kid that looked like he had just turned 19 that day, and was up and down the whole time I was there, and another guy who was there for the first time, who lost and left before me. One old lady there that all the otheres folded to her raises, so i took a hint and got out of pots she decided to play.

All in all, a very soft game, and quite an enjoyable first time playing poker in a casino. I'll be going back sometime soon, with more time to play.

Oh, and between poker craps and slots, my wife and I came with $200 and left with $185. Now if i had only played poker the whole time......
