I know, I know, but hear me out. I've played at every room on the strip and if you're a low stakes cash game player I truly feel this room is tops. Here's the rundown: 1) The dealers and managers are fantastic. Efficient, personable, funny and competent. They always make sure the tables are enjoying themselves. It's the kind of room where after the first day they were on a first name basis with me. Unlike some of the bigger rooms you can tell they really appreciate your low stakes business. 2) This is an excellent room for recreational players looking to have a good time. This isn't an intimidating room where you're going to find a lot of grim 20-somethings with headphones and hoodies. Most players are tourists looking to have some fun. And again, the aforementioned personable dealers and management are a big part of the reason why the games are so enjoyable. 3) The rake is 4 dollars with a 1 dollar jackpot drop. That's better than any CET property and near average for MGM properties. With the jackpot there are opportunities for high hand bonuses which don't require you to sit in your seat for several hours. 4) The room is very attractive and comfortable (see below). MC is leagues ahead of other small and mid-sized rooms like MGM, PH or Bally's. 5) Drink service is excellent. I don't think I've ever heard a player complaining that they haven't seen a waitress. 6) Okay, I hesitate to write this because I don't want to ruin it for myself but... the Monte Carlo poker room is fantastic for sharks. Factors 1-5 lead to really soft games. The player population consists of weak tight, calling stations, and gambling LAG-tard players. I'm by no means a great player, but I consistently feel like one of the best players at the table. I've put in significant time at MC and it's pretty rare to have a tough table. I also like for the 1/2 NL game they require a 100 dollar minimum buy-in instead of 60 which means there's always a decent amount of money on the table and keeps short stacking nits away. Seriously, MC is a great room.
