No its not, at least from my trip to macau just this year feb 2008 for a study on the Integrated Resorts.

However, I went to their Texas holdem table, which they are the only ones who happen to have, out of the 4 other casinos I have visited (MGM GRAND, CROWN, VENETIAN & WYNN) that offers TEXAS poker. And most of the players are Caucasians. The people on the table I play are mostly asians though, and their playing style (honestly) cannot qie with Singapore players. I dunno how much have they upgraded their power already, haha.. but honestly, they are not as good as Singapore players. So maybe some of you guys can go back there to try the game out just for fun! Their max buy in in each table is 400 SGD. Blinds are 10-20 HKD, which is around 2-4 SGD per hand.

Anyone interested in going to Macau again, I will be having another trip in either this year July, or next year Feb. I have contacts with the VP of hotel operations in Venetian so might be able to get cheaper rates for more people going together as a group!

Regards,
Cavin

book your hotel rooms whne you g t to macau through a travel agent there, its a lot cheaper. But just get some cheap hotel near the casino don't bother staying at lisboa. Not worth it cause you'll be in the casino most of the time anyway so why get such an expensive one. That is unless of course you are a big balla and have the money to burn.

if u are intending to book tickets now, its pretty expensive. if u stay in venetian, u can get a free ferry ticket to hongkong, thats their promotion which will last all the way this year if i am not wrong. there is only poker at lisboa casino when i went, the rest don't have. they only have those games like 5-studded poker (the most pro there i feel), roulette, casino wars, sic bo, etc. the old pple play kind. but venetian is nice la can go check it out. i stayed there, their room is like 5 star hotel haha
