Poker Room spied in RWS casino

Postby tedlhw » Wed Feb 17, 2010 9:42 am

People,
I went to the IR last night to check things out.
It was boring for me, until i saw it.
I saw a poker room , well, it was more like a wooden cordoned off area.
It wasn't opened yet, but it said poker. Didn't say texas, just poker.
I looked at the sign at the table, there was one 25/50 blind table, and a few 5/10 blind table.
There are 8 tables in total with 8 seats per table. 5% rake.
Does anyone know when they will open the poker room?

I asked one of the staff there and she said that it will open in the next few days or next week. Some technical glitches there. She also said it is no limit texas holdem. doesn't seems like there will be other forms like PLO or others.

I was there last night and I saw exactly what you described. It wasn't so much hidden though -- it was just an area of the casino (imagine the RHS of the main lane) that is not accessible perhaps due to manpower and other miscellaneous reasons. Definitely something to look out for in the future :)

Guess there is no "Texas NL holdem at RWS". instead, they offer "Progressive Texas Holdem Poker". Well, we don't know what is really the status now. Please visit the site below.

Let's see what the rake is before we all get excited, if it's 10% no cap, means that nobody can make money.

mmm, looks like it's 5% rake, likely no cap, if this is the case, it looks playable.

Is 5% rack with capping most likely at 5BB, preflop no rack.

Buy-in should be 50BB - 150BB.

So what's the latest? The poker room opened yet? How's the action like? NL? or Limit? Any Omaha?

Thanks
