Inspired by @BuffaloEats on Twitter, what was the best meal you've had in Buffalo this year?
The tweet in mind. What was the best meal you've had in the Queen City this year? I've had a few bangers.
Eggs benedict at Mon Ami downtown. Especially unique because it isn't served on an English muffin, but rather a toasted croissant. It's delicious.
Crab roll at 2 Forks Up in Getzville. A relatively hidden gem in Getzville that serves amazing seafood. The crab roll was a little small but extremely tasty.
Filet Mignon at Western Door Steakhouse (Seneca Niagara Casino), Niagara Falls. May be the best steak I've ever had. Cooked flawlessly and extremely flavorful.
Grilled half chicken with mango chutney at Eagle House, Williamsville. This was a summer special but it was delicious. The chicken was very juicy and the chutney was fresh and flavorful.
Jambalaya at Louisiana Cookery, Cheektowaga. Spicy and served in giant portions. Hidden gem on Walden.
Ahi tuna tartare at Left Bank, West Side. Delicious appetizer.
Own No Koksware, Sun Cuisines, Amherst/Riverside. May be one of the most unique soups you can get. It's a rich chicken broth cooked with coconut milk and turmeric and served with fresh vegetables and chicken.
Last year, I made an 800 hour post when I hit 800 hours at live low stakes 1/2 - 2/3 NLHE. https://www.reddit.com/pokecomments/6xyfys/800_hours_at_12_live_nlhe/ Yesterday, I finally passed the 800 hour mark in live PLO and wanted to post the results here as there are a lot of NLHE graphs but I almost never see PLO results (especially live). I live in Vegas but these results include several sessions from Atlantic city, Seneca Niagara casino, Foxwoods, and other random east coast casinos sprinkled in. https://i.imgur.com/5vEuh5n.png Sidenotes: -I've played roughly 1M+ hands online of PLO. -My current online avg stake is 1/2 PLO and occasionally 2/4 PLO -I play on Global, WSOP, ACR, tiny bit of ignition -I use to enjoy short stacking online, especially vs Joey Ingram to get him riled up. I always buy in maximum live. -Biggest winning day: +6500, Biggest losing day: -11,500 -Stakes are 1/2/5 -2/5/10 and 2-3 short sessions of 5/10/20 -PLO is a really fun game and a lot of action and more people should get into it. You can also play like 50%+ hands in some live games and get away with it.

I like it when other people post their graphs and stats on here so I figured I'd throw mine in as well since its a pretty decent sample size although my stats aren't too impressive. These are all casino 1/2-1/3 NLHE games. 1.)stats 2.)graph by session 3.)most $ made by rooms 4.)least $ made by rooms 5.)earnings by weekday https://imgur.com/a/zcZTR Things to note: -I've tipped almost $1600, mostly $1 at a time. I average about $2/hr in tipping. I use to tip every hand, but when I started keeping track of this stat, I've cut back on my tipping a bit. -I use to live in Buffalo NY and played a bit at Seneca Niagara Casino. 222 hours are from there. The rest is mostly in Las Vegas where I currently reside and a few random casinos throughout USA that I stopped at. -I don't ever game select. In fact, I do grind a few bit of promotions (thats why I have so many hours at South Point, they had a 180k freeroll for doing 100 hours). This means that even if a game is terrible, I will continue playing it. Most of these hours are from random poker room promotion periods and those games are pretty bad with a lot of nits and promo grinders. Harrah's is my worst location as I grinded their morning games to try to win a WSOP ME seat. (I got 3rd in the tourney to qualify and only 1st got the seat) -I play poker for a living primarily online. I grind live 1/2 and 1/3 games mostly for fun or out of boredom or if I feel like carpooling to the strip with my roommates to donk around for a bit.
[BN] Cuomo pushing Las Vegas-style casino in Western New York; What's your opinion on casinos in and around Buffalo?
ALBANY – Frustrated by the lack of a casino revenue agreement with the Seneca Nation, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Wednesday proposed permitting a new Las Vegas-style casino in Western New York if voters statewide approve a gambling expansion amendment to the state constitution. If that statewide plan fails, Cuomo proposed locating two gambling halls with slot-like machines in Western New York to compete with the three Seneca casinos. The dramatic escalation of the state's fight with the Senecas came a day after Seneca President Barry Snyder Sr. called Cuomo a “bully” in between Snyder's meetings with state legislative leaders to try to beat back Cuomo's casino expansion plan. Cuomo officials, according to sources involved in the negotiations, called Snyder's comments the final straw that led to the governor releasing his bill Wednesday with the added Western New York gambling sites to challenge Seneca casino operations. The casino bill still needs legislative approval and the backing of a separate constitutional amendment change by voters in a statewide referendum as early as this fall. The bill calls for a “destination resort” casino located in Western New York if the Seneca Nation's 2002 casino compact with the state is not in “good standing.” It does not say who determines such standing, and the Senecas have insisted Cuomo cannot unilaterally impose such a condition. In addition, the legislation states that two new video lottery terminal facilities, which offer slot-like devices such as those at the Hamburg and Batavia harness tracks, can open in Western New York if voters do not approve the broader statewide casino expansion. The VLT facilities cannot offer table games such as poker, but the existing nine track-based casinos have proven increasingly successful for their operators in recent years. Both sides said Wednesday evening that negotiations have not broken down and that talks are continuing, but Cuomo has publicly and privately described the progress as nonexistent. The governor's overall casino plan would locate the first three of seven casinos in upstate regions. He divides upstate into six areas but takes two out of the running – a large swath of Central and Northern New York – because of recent deals he cut with Indian tribes already operating casinos in those areas. If the Senecas and the state reach a deal to end the dispute that has halted $600 million in tribe revenue-sharing payments to the state and Buffalo, Salamanca and Niagara Falls, the region would be taken off the list of eligible areas for a Class III casino that offers the full array of gambling, except betting on sports. The additional casino and two possible VLT-only casinos for Western New York would be competitively bid, with the operators chosen by the state Gaming Commission, which Cuomo controls, or a panel appointed by the commission. The Senecas, under their 2002 compact with New York State, were granted exclusive gambling rights in a large zone that extends from about the middle of the Finger Lakes region to Lake Erie. While Cuomo proposed a new Class III casino for Western New York if the state and Senecas don't resolve their fight, the two other facilities could only offer video lottery terminals. No table games would be allowed in those facilities, which would only be placed in the region if the Senecas' compact was no longer considered valid. Cuomo has floated the idea of trying to get a commercial developer to open a casino in downtown Niagara Falls as direct competition to the Seneca Niagara Casino. Wednesday, Snyder said in an interview with The Buffalo News, in which he twice called Cuomo a “bully,” that the tribe doesn't fear Cuomo's threats and believes that its casino in Niagara Falls would still flourish even with new competition. Other upstate areas that could have a Las Vegas-style casino would be a part of the Southern Tier, the greater Albany area and the lower Hudson Valley, including the Catskills region. Casinos would be banned in New York City. Other areas of downstate could get one of the remaining four casinos under the seven-casino plan, but not until at least five years after the first upstate casino opens. The Cuomo plan also calls for casino franchise operators to pay the state at least $50 million in upfront fees and to pay Albany 25 percent of gross gaming revenues. That is less than half the tax rate imposed on racetrack-based casinos, meaning the future gambling operations under the Cuomo plan will be far more lucrative to their owners and provide a smaller percentage of funding to the state than the nine track casinos. Bettors must be age 21 or older to gamble in the facilities, and, unlike the Indian casinos, gamblers will not be able to smoke in the casinos under the Cuomo plan. The legislation also proposes to ban political contributions by casino applicants to statewide or state legislative officials, and a new Inspector General's Office would be created within the Gaming Commission. Lawmakers and Cuomo have until June 20 to negotiate the casino bill before the scheduled end of the 2013 legislative session. Lawmakers last year approved a resolution amending the state constitution to permit up to seven new casinos; the same, vague resolution has to be approved again this year if voters are to consider it in November. That 17-word resolution states that casino gambling will be permitted at no more than seven new facilities in the state. A separate enabling bill, like the one Cuomo proposed Wednesday, is needed to lay out the specifics of how the casino expansion would work; there is nothing to stop future governors or lawmakers from changing those terms if voters approve the casino amendment to the constitution this fall.
In a matter of days, the Seneca Niagara Summer Slam tournament will come to an end, with everyone anxiously waiting for the Main Event. Meanwhile, participants were more than interested in the prospect of winning a lot of money in sight tournaments, with Joe Ciffa being by far the most prolific so far. His success story began with Event 2 when he pocketed in excess of $10,000 and just one day later, he returned to the tables for the third event. This time, he made the final table with a healthy stack, but he ran into tough competition, which explains why it took so long for a winner to be decided. In the first few hours, players were eliminated fairly quickly, until only five were left standing. The difference between making the podium and finishing outside of it is quite significant in terms of money earned, so nobody was willing to gamble. The inevitable happened and once Jim Burkett was sent to the rail, the remaining three players were pit against a difficult decision. The obvious choice was to keep playing for the ultimate trophy and the corresponding payouts, but they chose to split the pot evenly. The reason for why they didn't want to let luck decide the outcome of the tournament is that they spent a lot of time trying to build a stack. Once it became obvious that each of them will receive a bit over $4000, the three players decided to end the tournament once level 20 would conclude. The one who had the chip lead at that moment would be crowned winner and luckily for Joe Ciffa he won a massive pot just a couple of hands before level XXI was supposed to start. This meant that he won his second tournament in just two days, a formidable performance that is unlikely to be matched or exceeded before the series concludes. Check out the Summer Slam Event 3 Final Table Results below: 1. Joe Ciffa - $4,0782. Bruce Pace - $4,0783. Aaron Obstein - $4,0784. Jim Burkett - 1,9785. Scott Hosbach - $1,4396. Pierre Gautreau - 1,1007. Brian Bowen - $8468. Jonathan Revere - $5299. Maurice Sessum - $52910. Travell Thomas - $434 Live action will continue as soon as the Summer Slam gets wrapped up at Seneca Niagara Casino, but players won't have to take a prolonged break. Betfair Poker keeps the flame alive over the Internet with a nice variety of cash games and tournaments that are supposed to suit all bankrolls and skill levels. from via Casinoreviews
Scott Hosbach wins opening event at the 2014 Summer Slam
The 2014 Summer Slam started this weekend and Seneca Niagara Casino is the gracious host for the event bringing together an eclectic mix of amateurs and professionals. The first event was not necessarily a large one, at least not if compared to other live poker tournaments, but is represented an important milestone for participants. As always, those who attend such competitions are playing game various events and don't limit themselves to one tournament, but try to start on the right foot. Scott Hosbach is one of those who can be thrilled about his recent performance, as he prevailed in the first tournament and collected a cool $3100. Granted this is the buy-in for some bigger tournaments, winning the $200 no-limit hold'em deepstack turbo tournament represents quite a performance for the poker amateur. He had to outshine a total of 108 players and did a brilliant job at keeping his cool and building on his temporary chip lead. By the time he made the final table, he had a significant lead over the pack and was smart enough not to shift into a less aggressive gear. The surviving 10 players were adamant and none of them gave up, but one by one players were sent to the rail, leaving the last five evenly matched. Scott was still ahead at this time but the remaining players decided that it was a good idea to contemplate the possibility of a deal. It didn't take long for them to reach a conclusion and by the time the break ended, they were quite happy to split the pot evenly. This meant that each player was guaranteed to receive $2600, with the winner to take home an additional $500 for his effort. At the end of the day it was Scott Hosbach who survived the heads up, in a highly competitive final played against Paula Rasmussen. These sorts of deals are quite frequent over the Internet, where players don't like the idea of allowing luck decide the outcome of the tournament. After spending many hours at the tables in one of the biggest weekly tournaments, Ladbrokes Poker players are given the chance to split the pot according to their chips. Sometimes, those who are ahead need to make some concessions to reach an agreement and on rare occasions no deal is made, which means that players are left fighting until the bitter end. This was not the case in the opening event of the 2014 Summer Slam, with the final table results being displayed below: 1. Scott Hosbach - $3,1002. Paula Rasmussen - $2,6003. Matthew Caramanna - $2,6004. Brett Ansel - $2,6005. Greg Illig - $2,6006. Steve Rumery - $9077. D.J. MacKinnon - $7738. Paul McLean - $5939. Sam Guercio - $47110. Darrin Bracken - $336 from via Casinoreviews

This is a Hail Mary, but I had relatives in from out of town last week and they lost / had stolen a camera bag containing a Canon DSLR with extra lens & charger. Would have likely been at the Starbucks in the Sheraton across from the Seneca Niagara Casino or at the entrance to the State Park opposite Old Falls Street. Don't really want anything but the memory card and the jump drive that were in the bag. This was a once-in-a-lifetime trip for them and they lost all their pictures. Thanks.
Hi /poker, here is the rule that I came across today, I've never heard it or seen it before so I am curious if others are aware of it, if it is more common than I know and if I can get an explanation of the reason for it. Situation: 1-2 NL Hold'em Preflop: UTG makes it 7 UTG+1 goes all in for 10 1 or 2 callers and some folds to me in late position. I try to raise it to 20 and am told I cannot. RULE: I am not allowed to raise. My only options are call and fold. The further explanation from a friend was that because the all-in bet was less than half of the raise amount. I can't raise it. This makes no sense to me. I know that because it wasn't a full raise it doesn't reopen the betting for the original raiser (UTG) but why am I, a player who has yet to act, losing options because an earlier player went all in for to little. Can anyone give me some more info here. For those that are curious this happened at the Seneca Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY Thanks EDIT: corrected term to be UTG (been a while since I've discussed poker, I've forgotten so many terms)
