Rounders Poker Room

The Lodge at Deadwood calls their poker room the Rounders Poker Room.  The standard games dealt at the Lodge at Deadwood’s poker room are typically the biggest in town.  They are what is called “Deadwood No Limit”.  Since no limit cash games are not allowed due to the $1000 bet limit, spread limit is dealt instead.  The limits are typically 2-1000, 5-1000 and 10-1000.  The Rounders Poker Room offers a bad beat jackpot where aces full of 10’s or better must lose to qualify.  Three aces on the board kills the jackpot possibility.  Both players must use both cards. The Lodge recently raised their rake to 10% up to $5. Note that this is the highest in Deadwood and applies to all games.
