Re: A few Vegas poker rooms

Hi,

As I type this..... Sunset has one game going. A $4-8 LHE.

They also get 1-2 NL everyday.

Their 3-6-9 game is pretty much history (replaced by 4-8).

Re: Questions about the Orleans Poker Room

I play the Orleans a lot.
I think you (O.P.) might like the O/8 games there. They often have 2 or 3 games going of O/8. Sometimes during busy times, they will have even more.

It's near the coffee shop (near the sports book). I eat there 2 or 3 times a month. Suncoast also has the same setup.

Re: Do higher limit players normally play horribly when playing down?

I have seen both (many times). Some play great, (Howard Lederer, Tommy Angelo, etc). Most play bad (for whatever reasons) when stepping way down, IME. YMMV.
