Minneapolis poker?

I’m traveling through Minneapolis next month and might have a few hours to kill. How’s the action? Looks like it’s all spread limit, $100 max bet? Does that affect gameplay much? Which rooms are better than others? Thanks.

    Players I know up there tend to play exclusively at Canterbury and Running Aces, but no info beyond that.

    Depends on what you like to play. If you like speed limit Omaha High then Running Aces is the place but it places crazy fast it is a $2-$100 game with $1-2 blinds but the players have about $5000 on the table and love to max bet for pressure. Canterbury is better for everything else and is a much better run room. They are about an hour apart so room hopping is rough. $2-$100 S-L plays much closer to a $2-5 NL game as far as raises go but not much max betting without nuts or very close to it. There is a $40-80 mixed game that is a really good but tough game. Most days have 2 daily tournaments that draw a lot of runners and are a fairly good group of players as a group.. if you want NLHE the closest is Turtle lake Wisconsin and Diamond Jims in Iowa both about an hour from downtown. Aces does run a few tournaments that I play but 90% of my time is at Canterbury. Canterbury has 2-4 3-6 3-6 H-K 4-8 6-12 8-16 10-20 20-40 and 40-80 Limit Holdem They offer O-8 6-12 and I think 10-20. 2-4 Stud. They also have cash tournaments that play with dollar for dollar chips that run for 2 hours and allow for reloads. After 2 hours you win whatever is infront of you. These are NLHE and are $300,$500,$1000 and more is wanted. Avoid any other rooms as the action is spotty at best

    Thanks! That’s a lot of limit poker...

    Spread limit Omaha sounds fascinating but I think it’ll be Canterbury, based on this recommendation and geography (flying into MSP and driving west).
