    I play a lot of 1-2/1-3 NL holdem but never played at Ceasars. I generally like the smaller rooms like Harrahs, Flamingo, Planet Hollywood, Luxor as the game is pretty easy to beat and somewhat upbeat (decent game conversations). You also get the free rolls at Flamingo and Harrahs. Any thoughts on Ceasars for 1-2/1-3 holdem?

    I enjoy it. I actually like the room more now that it's only semi-closed off (the previous location behind the sports book was just too quiet for me when it comes to 1/3 NLHE). I think it has a little more energy to it now. Mostly rec players a few pros who are always in the room, the norm. Definitely not one of the 'big 4' rooms but not far behind.

    Based on the rooms you mentioned, you need to check out this room. the 1-3 and 2-5 games are usually outstanding. As TRN mentioned since they moved the room it's really much busier and a great place to play. I also find the staff to be excellent. Download the Bravo Live app and you can see what games are running. Also, I believe you earn more tier points & tr points here than other rooms but you will need to check on those details yourself

    Caesars deals 1-2 and it is still not that hard a room. Some good players but plenty of fish.

    Did they change it to 1/2? Was 1/3 last time I was in there.

    I whole heartedly agree. I quit playing Caesars exactly for this reason. Now I like the feel of the room, but I would like it better if they would start dealing me better cards!

    Yeah, as of early April when I was there it was 1-2. $2 an hour in comps (34 tier credits an hour), $4 max rake.

    I have only played tourneys there but if the play is any indication, it is a FISH FEST--not always fun in a tourney. But lovely for cash.

    Funny story about my buddy and "fish".

    Pete is a pretty good poker player, though kind of a nit. We was in Vegas for five days in April for the USBC Open Championships bowling tournament, and spent the non-bowling time on the Strip with the intent of feeding on the fish.

    My phone was buzzing constantly with tales of bad beats from fish, usually when he got the right amount of money in the pot at the right time and the fish sucked out on the river. This happened everywhere he played, especially the CET side (Flamingo, Harrah's and PH). He was down almost $2000 in four days of 1/2, and down to his last $500 we went to the Venetian and got into a game with actual poker players. He won back $500.

    I prefer "fish"ing in tournaments with buy-ins of $60-$80 or so. They can be easy money early when it makes sense for me to rebuy if they beat me, but as the fish fall out and actual poker players remain, the games become more like actual poker.
