Re: Value betting the river in multiway pots

Since limit holdem at it's core is about getting maximum bets when you are ahead and losing the minimum when you are behind but drawing (or folding when you don't have the odds) Value betting...

Re: Poker is a necessary annoyance for casino executives.

I for one would never regularly play these electronic casino poker games unless they were the only game offered within a 50 mile radius of my house.
I like live poker with cards and chips and that...

Re: My Vegas trip (Luved Venetian and Caesars PRs)

Nice report rounder.
I really like Venetian and Caesars too. They both also have great daily NL tourneys for under $200. Did you play in either of those? I would definitely spend more of my Vegas...

Re: Quick questions about 8/16 on the strip

I would say the only place to be sure on any day of the week and time of day that at least 1 8/16 will be going is Bellagio.
Wynn will likely have 8/16 most evenings and Fri-Sun during the day.

Re: When are games too good?

Re: Best daily Vegas tournament for low rollers?? (under 70.00 entry fee)

All 3 of these are decent so based on your location on the strip each day hit one or more of these:

South Strip - Planet Hollywood
Mid Strip - Treasure Island
North Strip - Sahara

Re: Sahara Tournament?

I thought it was a decent Low Limit Tourney when I played the 11AM in October.
We had 60 runners and I ended up chopping it 5 ways for $380 at the final table. The dealers and floor did a pretty...

Re: Vegas next week

It is pretty sad that the V can't keep any middle limit holdem going. Didn't they used to get quite a few 8/16 games at least going?
Is it just the time of year? Did they have any mid limit games...

Everyone should support the Grand Casino Hinckley $170 MTT on Saturdays because it is the best value MTT in MN in my opinion. Yes the blinds go up every 20 min compared to 30 at Canterbury but the...

Re: Wynn trip report, 10/26-10/27

And the debate still rages on
Which Vegas poker room has the hottest waitresses?

Is it Wynn or Venetian?
I would say Wynn but not by much.
