The room was in very good condition -- a little smoky, but what do you expect in Las Vegas? The tables were nice, and the chairs were moderately comfortable. Everyone seemed to be having a good time.
There were a lot of beginners at my table, which is both good and bad. I was playing a NL Hold'em tournament, and you can't bluff out beginners because they call everything. I figured this out, but it was too late to save me in the tourney.
The dealers didn't make any mistakes and kept the game moving. They didn't talk a whole lot, but they knew what they were doing. They got bent cards out of play quickly, which was nice.
Cocktail waitresses were virtually omnipresent. Nobody had any trouble getting drinks, and the drinks themselves were not bad.
The tournament moved along at a nice pace, and blinds increased at regular levels. The ring games around us seemed to be well managed.
There was a decent bad-beat jackpot that paid both players as well as everyone else at the table. Other than that, not much in the way of comps.
