I was looking for good poker tournaments near Paris.
1pm & 7pm $125 Weekdays $345 Weekends
If you want a good tournament make the 0.5 mile walk to Aria for the 1PM or 7PM $125 daily. It's by far the best option for a good structured tourney close by. If you don't really care about structure or if your looking to play cash Bally's is your closest option. The properties are essentially linked, back in the day Paris had a poker room and they where basically one big room in a way with the same dealers at both places.
Thanks for the info.
Agree. I'm going in June and am planning on hitting this one daily. Just like anything else...generally, the higher the buy in, the better the structure. Some are soooo bad.
Highly recommend the Ceasar's room.. unless it's changed in the last 2 years.
I remember large chip stacks, 20 minute rounds and not a "push fest"...
Aria, Aria and Aria. Best daily tournament in town.
Roughly how long does this thing take, give or take?
They're long. The 1PM lasts to 9-10. I've seen the 7PM end at 3AM. It's a well done daily tourney, but you're committing serious time if you run deep.
Bally's and PH are good choices if you want something shorter. PH seems to average 3 hours.
www.pokeratlas.com is a great website with all the poker room info you need
Another great site is...
PH tournaments get a good amount of runners? Good structures? (considering the entry fee)
PH tourneys always go--usually 2-3 tables, can be more, occasionally less. They did just move in between the Sports book & Earl of Sandwich--wonder what that will do for crowds? (more visible to mall...)
The structure is quite good. Guaranteed $1K 1st, $500 2nd. $80, 10K chips, 20 min. blinds. Rake is 26%, fairly typical for tourneys under $100.
Monte Carlo has a good structure--$75, 10K, 20 min. blinds, 23% rake. But no guarantee & they can struggle to get even one table at times.
I don't recommend Ballys--$500 guarantee for 1st, but $55 only gets you 5K chips, 20 min blinds & you skip 2 blind levels, starting at 100/200. And the rake is 29%.
That is the 3PM; the 8PM is a bit better for $75, 8K chips, 28% rake.
