Foxwoods Poker Room

Overview

Part of Foxwoods Resort Casino

The non-smoking Poker Room at Foxwoods features 54 tables for live action, such as Stud, No Limit, Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, Omaha and 60 permanent tournament tables. The poker room's tournament schedule varies every few months, so check with the casino for the current schedule. Players will find that the poker room has an abundance of amenities such as auto shufflers, USB chargers, cocktail service, massage, TVs, WiFi, valet parking and more. 

Foxwoods is an Indian casino located in Connecticut and within driving distance of NYC.  It is billed as the largest casino in the world.  Since its opening it has created an alternative poker destination to Atlantic City for players in the Metropolitan NY area.  While the poker room is not the largest room in the world, it is sizeable. 

The room uses an electronic waiting list with several screens showing where you stand on the list.  We found wait times to be very reasonable and the friendly staff helps keep things moving.  They offer a variety of games, but do focus on limit and no limit hold'em.  There are several 7 card stud and Omhaha games running at all times.  The room is open 7 days a week till late and we found the room to be quite busy at all hours of the night, even during the week.

Impressions: The new WPT Poker Room is huge to say the least, but Foxwoods missed the mark in several areas. They have already moved the sign up area to a new spot, which is only marginally better then the original. It is in the middle of the room, which is crowded and busy. There are only 1-2 people there to sign people up, and the line can get 20-30 deep on weekends they have an event going on.
The room has plenty of tables and plenty of action, but the tables are painfully close together, and the speaker system for calling players is obnoxiously loud. Since the room is so big (actually two rooms) that a seat can be open at a table, and it takes them 5-10min to fill it. Most of the time I find the floor man and let them know, so I can get my seat.
Oh yeah.. there is no eating at your table or the room. They have a diner you can go and eat at (it's OK), and they don't cater to you like some of the better rooms, but we go there for poker anyway.
Podi
Atmosphere: Room is huge, but tables are too close together. Speakers are too loud, sign up area is crowded.
There is only one window to sign up for tournies and SNG's, line can get huge.
Dealers: Have not had any bad ones.
Food: no food in the poker room, have to go to diner next door.
Service: not very organized, takes too long. Cannot call ahead. Management was knowledgeable and knew the rules. Wait time depends on if its a standard weekend (minimal wait time) to very long on weekend where they have and event (WPT)
Comps: They offer comps, not very good. No BB jackpot.

We left the city early on Saturday morning and got up to Foxwoods at about 11am. Enough time to buy in for the $500 tournament and get a quick bite to eat. I get to my table a few minutes before the noon and am seated to the right of older woman in her late 60's. I recognized one younger Asian guy across the table, but the rest of the group was composed of guys in their late 20's to 40's.
On the first hand of the day I get JJ UTG and raise 3x BB. The older lady makes raises me the pot and everyone folds. I usually never fold JJ in this position, but assumed that this woman is pretty tight so assume the worst she has is AK, but she likely has AA or KK so I fold.
A few hands later there is an early raiser and two calls and I have 22 in LP so I call. The flop is 28Jr and the first raiser bets and I'm the only one who calls. The turn pairs the 8 and the guy makes another pot sized bet and I push. He calls and turns over AA and I double through when a non A comes on river.
Nothing much happens for the rest of the round, but i increase my stack a bit with some PF raises with air and no callers. Actually one time somebody did call, but folded to my continuation bet.
There were two hands that I was involved in where the older lady had to show down hands where she was aggressive with and both times she hand junk. Perhaps I made a bad call on the first hand when I assume she must have had the goods when raising my JJ.
During the second level I raise from the button with AK and the BB calls. The flop comes AK8 with two clubs. The BB checks and I bet about 2/3rds of the pot and the BB calls. The turn is blank and I now bet the pot and the BB calls again. Not sure what he has but I'm hoping a hand like AQ or even A8. I don't think he has a club draw, but he could have a set, but it doesn't look like it because he took a long time to call me on both streets and he really did seem to agonize over it. The river is a club and immediately throws in his remaining 300 chips. I have to call and do, and he turns over 86 of clubs. Oh, brother! I'm back to where I started but am pretty bummed out.
The rest of the round goes terrible. I get AQ twice, bet preflop, miss, make continuation bets both times and have to fold to raises. I flame out when I hit another set wtih 44 and my opponent hits a straight on the turn.
I had some luck in Sit & Gos and will try to write about a few hands later today or tomorrow.
