    Id suggest getting the Bravo Poker app for up to date info, not only on the rooms running and their promotions/rules, but also to show you which has tables running at any given time.

    Last time I checked it, I think a few poker rooms were only running on weekends (PH for example) but i don't know if that is changing.

    Nope, I can tell you the Mirage room is shut down. Had to go across the street to the Venetian. Can confirm the Venetian and the Wynn poker rooms are open.

    You're one day early. 06/01 is no restrictions reopening. More information will be available shortly thereafter. WSOP is going to be live at the Rio from 09/30 to 11/23, so I would expect everything to be back to normal by then.

    I second the suggestion for Bravo Poker. What a grand tool for finding games. However, I have found that I actually have to look at it before I go in search of a game, and I didn't last trip and wound up at Flamingo on a closed day.

    I think the Mirage room shut down permanently pre-covid

    Check out Bravo poker or Pokeratlas. They will give the latest on poker rooms...cash and tournaments.

    Bravo Poker doesn't tell you if the room is closed or open and doesn't have any tables running. Rooms in question are MGM Grand, Planet Hollywood, Flamingo and Ballys.

    No, it was the Covid timeframe, played there the first week of March 2020. But it seems likely to be permanent. No formal announcement that I'm aware of yet, though.

    Updated since Excalibur, Mandalay and Mirage are closed.

    Good call, missed that. Although I'm not surprised. I hope the dealers from Mirage were picked up elsewhere. A lot of them have been dealing for a very long time. They weren't the fastest dealers, but knew how to control a game, and had some good stories.

    I wonder where the regs went, too. They had a daily 3-6 limit holdem full of seniors who all went there basically just to hang out with each other and tell jokes. And I don't know of any other regular small stakes limit holdem on the strip, so I wonder if they all had to migrate to the Orleans or something. Kinda sad to lose that atmosphere.

    Flamingo had low limit holdem for years.

    It's quite possible those guys went off strip to the Orleans or something like that; off strip has done quite well in two plus two's surveys.
