On my way there now via public transport, which is the way to get around Montreal for sure. Way faster than car.
Anyways I plan on playing PLO if I can get on, boring NL if not. Hopefully they have USB chargers so I can keep my phone charged and this thread updated. Will try and update with interesting hands, my impressions of the place, etc.

    Going good so far haven't switched from 1/2 yet. Up 150 at the moment.
    Fyi rake is a bit high at 10% max 10 but with free food and drink I think it's worth it

    Just hit a big hand first hand after taking a break. Missed my blind but posted $3 in the cutoff. No raise I have A,10cc. Flop kc, jc, 10d. Mid position bets 10, I raise to 20, call, call. Turn a perfect 2c. Check to me, I bet 45, both call. I'm thinking A or Q no pair the Board. Perfect Ah comes. Check to me in the cutoff, I shove hoping someone has Q. Button hums and haws, finally calls with the Q, talked him into thinking it was a split pot... he was a real table donator. He bought in once more, lost half of it on the next hand and left.. boooo

  • English or French cards?
  • It’s English cards there. French at the casino, but they aren’t running poker yet.

    Playground is the best place to play. Menu is different depending on stakes you’re playing.

    Devon and I have been several times. Love it there.

    Bad news, all in for 475 on the flop, A,10,8 on the flop I have AA (of course) villain has 88, turn 8 and I am thinking I'm good, nope, he has quads. REBUY!

    Think we had about 80 in pre. Very crazy table. Seems like a lot of Cory clones.

    After all that I ended down about a hundred bucks after 11 hrs and 2 big meals. Food and service excellent, action about the best I've seen since maybe 2008. Metro then bus is about 45 min from right downtown.

    Nice. Used to be that if you played higher levels you had a larger menu option. Still awesome food at $1/$2, but stuff like steak etc at higher levels.

    Their pastas are amazing and one of the best Greek salads too.
  • Fyi that plo game played more like 5/10, had to make your decision early then hold on

    For food, you scan the app sticker on the side tables and it brings up the complete menu, some high drink and food items are charged but real cheap. I think filet mignon was like $11.
  • Will be back!
  • deuxième partie - see how I did that? Just 4 days here and I'm fluently bilingual.

    Anyways enjoyed the Playground so much I went back for the free dinner and desert..

    Ran my 250 up to 375 with litterly no effort. Much quieter tonight and it played tighter. No big hands to report. My best hand was a 100 pot won with 97 suited on the button. Flopped open ended, bet the flop for 1/2 pot, turned the straight and a shorty shoved the turn with top 2.
