About 15 tables, but more than half have been full every time I've been there. I play 1-2, but there were a couple 2-5 tables and even a PLO table going. Plus the routine tournament. Action was pretty good, without being crazy aggressive. A casual player should have a good time, and a more studied player should find an easy win. Not terribly fishy, but loose enough to make it an enjoyable grind.
The second room to open in Detroit was at Motor City and in my opinion the MC Cardroom is in many ways an improvement over Greektown when the two are compared side-by-side. Motor City is a bit smaller and a bit more cramped but the arrangement of the brush desk is both well thought out and electronic. Waits are no shorter here on the weekends (up to 3 hours) but the process is more efficient and the staff more friendly and seemingly less overworked. The big games in town took very little time switching from Greektown to Motor City and they have been there ever since. As you might expect the "Big" game is the No Limit 300 minimum, no maximum buy-in game, which is really a tough game full of regulars all circling and waiting for the occasional fish. The next step down is the $50/$200 No Limit game, which is surprisingly much softer than the "Big" game, much softer. On the weekends there can be several of these games going. During the week, even with long lists, the wait is generally less than half an hour. Again comps are nearly non-existent and as the cardroom is on the non-smoking third floor of the casino, it's an escalator ride for your nicotine fix. Review originally appeared on PokerNews.com.
