    Received this information from the board's MGM Resorts contact.
    She did not specify if/when the poker room would reopen.

    Played a tourney there about an hour after the super bowl,, remember a old school vibe with friendly dealers and staff and made plans to return every trip as i loved the place...hopefully the replacement (if they build one) will be as nice

    I get it was "mom and pop" fun but never had much luck getting any kind of action game going here. Every time I played here it was a bunch of old rocks/regulars who fold every hand unless they get AA. While I know some people have had a lot of fun in here, all my memories of this place were pretty uneventful (and boring). Sorry to be that guy :)

    Yes TRN it very well may have been that way but we were hammered and looking for a cheap tourney to kick back with a few beers and play 3/6 afterwards in a low stress environment....

    It was a beautiful room, the kind you would like in your your own home
