Want back there ...

First time at the renewed poker room it was a great experience. A little bit darker than the old area (still in use for a lot of daily tournaments) nice new tables all with auto shufflers (but no player check-in at the table - that's the reason why it is not 5 of 5) and very comfy seats. For me this is THE poker room at downtown.

Many older experienced players. (I like to sit at a table with guys who know what they do) Because it was WSOP time, there where also a few young (internet) guns from the strip who made their sightseeing at “old vegas” and throw away some hundreds bugs each (thanks for paying my trip)

Within four days (5 to 8 hours per day) I only had 2 miss deals and one tired dealer (at 5 am – that’s o.k.) All the other where very experienced and really entertaining.

Most times cocktails took a looooong time, but at the end I always got what I wanted. Binion’s is one of the rooms where you can get your meal at a little table beside – I like that! The age, look and speed of waitresses compete with the majority of the (retired) players. ;-)

The desk is outside the room. There are no computer lists. So sometimes it took a while until open seats where filled up again and one morning they couldn’t get enough one and five dollar chips ??? (for what reason ever), but over all they make a good job.

The comps are 2$ per hour and when you get your card first time, there are still some bugs one (as I heard – haven’t checked). That’s outstanding! The only complain: To get my card I had to give my passport to the poker room desk. The lady worked at her terminal and then … …send me through the casino to the first black jack pit to get my card. Over there it took the guy another fifteen minutes to identify me by my (European) Passport and get the card out of the printer.
