    You're not going to find the answers you're looking for to this question. It inevitably gets asked every year during WSOP time. "Dude where are the juiciest games? I want to go there." The second a game becomes overly good, the regs will hear about it, go play in it, and it will no longer be "good." 1/2, 1/3, and 2/5 play pretty much the same anywhere you go in the US. Nowadays for me, a good game for me involves reasonable buy in range/rake, short waiting list, attentive floor staff, friendly/competent dealers, a clean environment, easy logistics(parking, food, etc). Although I don't live or play regularly in Vegas I would assume most casinos check most of these boxes.

    That's a great idea, thanks! Lil poker tour. I got a full day before my friends arrive so I'll just bounce around poker venues for the day and take it all in

    Honestly, the games at low/midstakes are good wherever you happen to find them. It's pretty random and arbitrary. Go explore. If the games at a casino look crappy, walk next door.

    Just stay on the strip. Don't wander off... into reg-ville.

    General trends ive noticed.

    Look through bravo at promotions the rooms offer. The more a rooms promotions cater to locals, the worse the games will be on average. For example, if a room offers a promo where the players who play the most hours in a month get a cash prize, that caters to locals who are willing to sit for hours and nut peddle.

    Off the strip games will be more polarized in terms of action. They will either be dead or off the rails.

    Rooms that regularly spread 2-4 limit tend to be nittier games.

    The lower the rake, the nittier the games.

    All this goes out the window from 12am-8am. Have fun and good luck.

    My theory is the lowest limit in the higher end rooms (Bellagio/Venetian/Wynn/Aria.) From my experience, there are people staying at the property who are new or newer to the game and have money to burn.

    You are normally not going to get the drunken, splashy craziness that can happen at some of the smaller dives (with only a table or two in the wee hours), but yeah - in general that's going to be a fairly safe, softish game.
