I was told the same by a floormanager. Haven't seen it with my own eyes though, cause I was not allowed to enter. In an email, in which I asked several questions about poker in RWS, they didn't mention poker in a VIP room, only awnser I got was they don't offer poker and don't know when they will :?

Maybe I'll check it out one more time tonight and let you know. Pretty frustrating that nobody can give a descent awnser, but I won't leave till they give me one ;)

If you mean Commerce Casino, they have poker because it is basically the only thing legal in California ;)

When poker became popular in 2003/2004 it was difficult to get the Vegas casino's to offer it. They view floorspace I'm sure the same way Singapore casino's do - how much money are we making per hour per square foot. Poker does much worse than table games or slot machines in this regard. Though the players kept demanding poker, more and more poker, and slowly we got what we demanded. Even at a place like Bellagio though, they do the bare minimum to keep the players quiet - and they like it when the wait lists are long and the players are standing around doing nothing, so they play table games and slots instead of the poker they came for. And Bellagio understands poker better than anybody. So it is up to us to DEMAND poker.

I think everybody on this forum simply speaking with a manager or supervisor every time they go to the casino's and asking about poker and saying that you really want it, would go a long way. They will mention that in meetings when poker comes up 'ya I get asked about it all the time...'.

as i said, there is a ONE and only poker table in the crockfords club..
blinds are 100/200 ...
0 players...

pls check properly with the marketing peeps, if they are unsure, its most probably they are stationed in the maxim club only..

if there is a demand for poker room, most likely there will be a poker room...

try harder!!!!!

If a group of wealthy business want to play poker at highstake and short handed, then i think the casino management would properly make contact with the poker community to invite available player to "Tart Ka".
