I know games change by the hour but near Bally's where are good places to play 1-2 1-3 NLH?
i guess they have that at ballys as ttim(the trooper) plays there regulairly..i only play tournaments!!!
and you have some nice pokerapps like bravo so you can see all the games offering!!!
I've played 1-2 at Bally's
Virtually all of the casino's with the exception of Paris, TI and I think the Monty Carlo have low limit, no limit holdem (ie usually capped at 100 big blinds for 1-2, 1-3. Some of the better places to play are: Caesars Palace, Venetian, Bellagio, Planet Hollywood, bally's, harrahs, flamingo, MGM, Wynn and Aria. As someone mentioned earlier download the bravo live app and they will list the current games running, the number of tables, and the number of people on the wait list. They will also offer the poker room phone number so you can call to be placed on the waiting list and/or ask any questions.
Planet Hollywood will have 1/2 or 1/3. Can't comment on how "good" the game will be though.
Yup have bravo on the phone, I'll be watching out for you guys ^^^^^^ looks like everyone is there in the next week
+1 to Bravo
Ballys, PH, Bellagio, Caesar's, Flamingo, etc. around you will have 1/2 or 1/3. If you don't think the game you are in is easy, get up and find a new game.
Generally, the dumpier casinos have worse players, but good games show up anywhere.
I would say it comes down to what you are looking for... soft/drunk crowd or nicer room.
Thinking "mid strip" (I realize that's a little subjective), if I was going for the soft room / drunk players, I always seem to have luck finding that at PH. Bally's isn't too far behind. Many people put Flamingo on this list, but all I've ever gotten at Flamingo is a dead boring game with a bunch of old rocks. Your mileage may vary.
If I was looking for the nicer room with nicer tables/chairs and better service, I'd be at Aria or Bellagio. In fact, those + Wynn/Venetian are my 'home base' when I am in town and not doing WSOP.
I'm always walking & checking Bravo to find descent 1/2 & 1/3 games. Following are simply my personal observations of where I play.
Bally's: This room was at the top of my list when it was centrally located. Tourists would see the game and try their luck. Now I find it nitty and boring.
MGM: This used to be my favorite room before it moved to its current location. Now I see lots of regulars there and not very busy. Dead vibe.
PH: I've found a couple of good games but I'm always card dead there. I need to play it more.
Flamingo: The games seem to be either really good or really bad. This is the first room that I always check out. Drawback: It's pretty dumpy. and dirty, and tightly packed.
Harrah's: Again, for some reason it was better until it moved to the entrance. Now there seems to be a number of pros in virtually every game.
Venetian: Solid room. Solid players. I have done very well there simply because I tend to get hit by the deck when I'm in a game.
Aria: I've only played there a few times and each time the games contained some loud, obnoxious, confrontational a-holes. As a recreational player, if I lose, at least I wold like to have a positive entertainment experience.
Caesar's: I didn't like the old location. On my last trip I enjoyed the room in its current location; I didn't enjoy the two coolers that I suffered!
Hubby enjoys Bally's. Said he has found there are fewer lower level pros there trying to work on tourists. Many locals seem to play there along with good folks who seem to really know the game. He also liked the room at Flamingo but hasn't played there in a couple of years...
You won't have to worry about me. Lol. The only poker I play is low limit mix games if they ever run...
