If you're ever unfortunate enough to find yourself in Ft McMurray you can cheer up a bit as there is a casino up there. And there is a small poker room. It's only open Thursdays thru Saturday. 7PM - 2AM There are only 3 tables so you'll need to call a few hours ahead to actually get a seat when they open up the doors. I was there last month and called the casino at 6PM to get onto the waitlist. I was 2nd on the waitlist and had to wait until 9PM to get a seat. 1/2 NL is the only game available $50 min/ $200 max buy in KEM circle back casino cards are used They use cheap inlayed plastic chips - they're really ugly. I'll have to keep a few the next time I'm there and post some scans. All chip buying is done at the table - this is good and bad. It's good if you end up getting stacked - you can rebuy quickly. It's bad for the same reason - it slows the game down quite abit.
