My favorite things about Turtle Lake


I’ve been at Turtle Lake for less than 24 hours, but I already love the place! Here are my favorite things so far –

  1. I played real no-limit holdem last night. I was only able to play for a short time, but I’m looking forward to playing more in the next few days with $1/2 games running every night and some $2/5 games Thursday through Sunday with Friday and Saturday for sure.
  2. I just had a $7.99 lunch buffet. Yeah. $7.99. And it was good. The beef roast and mashed potatoes were fantastic. I have paid as much $90 for buffets in Vegas, with $25 to $30 being pretty much standard, so eight bucks is pretty amazing.
  3. Free hot dogs and cookies in the poker room!
  4. E-Cig use allowed at the tables!
  5. The poker room is upstairs by itself basically on a huge balcony with a view of the casino below. It’s a very nice venue to spend a day playing cards.
  6. The players are friendly and happy and having a good time. I remember this from previous trips to Wisconsin, being surprised at how happy most of the players are and how much fun they have. It could be the beer, or possibly the fact that their football team actually wins. Having only lived in Michigan and Minnesota, I’m not sure what it’s like to live in a place with a good NFL team, but apparently it makes people smile a lot more.
  7. The staff are as friendly as the players. And a few of them aren’t tough to look at…
