    I'm hoping some of you fellow poker players can advise on the place to stay in Tunica, as far as getting a room deal.

    Any details on which casino, and poker player room rates would be appreciated.

    I attempted to email Gold Strike, but got no return answer as of 3 days ago.

    Believe or not, I've been there before, but it was about 12 yrs ago. The way I recall back then, you had to play minimum 6 hrs per day to qualify for the discounted poker players room rate.

    Any help is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Goldstrike doesn't have poker any more. Horseshoe has a pretty large room. It has been years since I went to any of the other casinos down there (that are still open), so I can't say what the poker action is like. Still, you may want to look into Sams Town. It's cheaper than Horseshoe and you can probably get a better deal. But I think Horseshoe is probably what you're looking for

    First, thank you for the reply. Second, you just explained why the Gold Strike didn't bother to reply to my email. They probably think I'm crazy-lol.

    It's been a long time since I've been down there. But with the Vegas airfares seemingly skyrocketing, Tunica becomes more and more attractive.

    We can drive there in roughly 4 hours.

    I should just call, that's the smart thing to do. I was thinking we might have some folks on the board who know their way around down there.

    Thanks again for the info.

    The Harrahs is gone (which was probably the Grand when you were last there many years ago). The Sheraton was re-branded the Roadhouse a few years ago. The Goldstrike/Horseshoe/Roadhouse pod is definitely the liveliest area with the most action. Horseshoe is the only poker room in that pod, but my guess is that is where you want to stay. You can probably get a casino rate. I would suggest calling them
