    Any experience with a table there?

    How are the dealers - fun and enthusiastic?

    Availablility on a Sunday night?

    I assume the outfits will be quiet stimulating??

    Ratings - any feedback? Intend on putting in a four hour'ish' session $50 - $100/hand?

    I've had several long black jack sessions at the Gate, but I have never played Pai Gow there before. When I stayed there last month they had one Pai Gow table and it seemed that the more experienced dealers were working at that table; especially my favorite redheaded dealer. The nights we were there the Pai Gow table was never full, you could always get a seat. Sorry, can't tell you what the table minimum was.

    I played there in December. They two dealers I had were fairly new, but didn't have any dealing errors until she had to pay out an envy bonus. The floorman came over and quickly helped her out.

    Both dealers were very fun and talkative, and the drink service was fast and strong. We had a great time. Based on that experience I would recommend Golden Gate for Pai-Gow. The minimum was $10 and she said that its rarely ever changed.

    Thought I'd bump this question and expand it to ask about other downtown Pai Gow Poker possible locations - any suggestions?

    Looking for fun dealers that can handle abuse from Drunk Canadians :beer:

    I've played pai gow at Plaza, MSS, the Cal, and ElCo. I'd say the best were the latter three. Plaza dealers were boring and even a little rude. I always have a good time at table games at MSS and the Cal dealers definitely knew what they were doing. I liked ElCo because the minimum was $5:)

    We always have a good time at Binions Pia Gow tables. I think it's $5 during the day then bumps to $10 in the evening. MSS and the Cal. Pia Gow Kinda sucks. I think their bonus doesn't start till a full house but it is a progressive.
