Default LV vs. AC

How would one compare the games in las Vegas compared to the games in Atlantic City? I play 5-10 limit at the Borgata and am going to the Wynn and plan on playing 4-8.

The difference is the games in Las Vegas are 3000 miles to the west of Atlantic City.

There is not much difference at all at the 4-8 to 20-40 levels.

There's a good chance you'll see the 4-8 at the Wynn play more like a Borgata 3-6/2-4 simply because thats the lowest limit game spread at the Wynn. Whereas, the Borgata has the 2-4 and 3-6 to absorb a lot of the "worse" players. You certainly wouldn't expect the 4-8 to be tougher than the 5-10.

But any given table on any given night can be an exception. One or two atypical players can change the entire nature of the table.

I play 5/10 at Borgata regularly, and I found Wynn 4/8 to be very comfortable. Bellagio 8/16 didn't seem much different either. Very small sample size, but there's another data point for you.

Vegas games are traditionally tighter.

Thanks to all for the comments. Perhaps I should watch my Ed Miller DVD. I should also watch my late night drinking, it will cost me more than the tips.

You're from Brooklyn and that's the best you can do? Plus if you are traveeling 300 miles to go from AC to Vegas you must be on a connecting fight. Fly direct you cheapskate!

Most Americans are geographic ignoramuses, and northeasterners are particular bad since they tend to think civilization extends only from Boston to DC and from ocean to Appalachians, but 9" got close. My flight planner says 2239 miles from EWR to LAS. Google says driving is 2521 miles. And unless you have a private plane I don't think you're gonna find a direct flight from ACY to LAS.
