Just booked my flight for my first trip to Vegas. Is there an on-line resource to easily find the best tourneys and promos? Wheres a good place to play 1-2? Consider myself an above average rec player. Thanks!

    just got back from vegas. Golden nugget on fremont street is very soft, only runs 1-2 NL but with uncapped buyins. So if you're rolled for it you play very deep against some very soft players. Rake is capped at $4 rather than the standard $5.

    I wrote this https://redchippoker.com/poker-player-guide-las-vegas-wsop/ specifically for the WSOP, but the observations about cash games and the different rooms can be generalized.

    The main issue is when you're here. For example, at the moment CES is filling every hotel room, so the strip clubs are packed and the casino floors deserted.

    Question 1: Where are you staying?
    I like to play close to where I am staying at for convenience.

    The wanna-be pro's are at Aria and Venetian IMO.
    Folks with money are at Bellagio and Wynn.

    I like Harrahs and the Flamingo. Tons of Rec players. Harrah's will play deeper than Flamingo.

    I've had success at Bally's too.

    You can download the Bravo Poker App and Poker Atlas for tournaments.

    I like the Mirage tournaments. They are cheap and the room is nice...and they will have a nightly that is a little more.

    Good Luck!!!

    It's been a while for me since I've been (though I'm heading back as well in a few weeks).

    I've always liked the Mirage. I also found that Planet Hollywood, Ceasar's, and Bally's were often pretty soft games with casual, drinking players.

    Agree with those that say to check Poker Atlas — helpful to see info on the games and reviews. Bravo also a good app.
