The Venetian is inspired by Italian artistry, with fine art and exquisite culinary experiences being the true trademarks of this eye-catching resort, hotel and casino. The Venetian’s poker experience is similarly luxurious for connoisseurs of the game. The Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza series is the trademark of The Venetian’s poker room. These events are treasured by poker players who enjoy great structures that allow poker skill to triumph over the all-in warfare that less well-designed tournaments often descend into. The Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza runs four times per year, featuring every major poker game in up to 80 varied events.
The first port of call for all Venetian first-timers is the front desk. You will need a Venetian Grazie players card to gain entry to any of the scheduled tournaments on site — and this is easily arranged by cashier staff. Once you progress to the Venetian poker room, you will be dazzled by one of the largest venues in Vegas, spreading more than 50 tables of action. The aforementioned luxury continues here as you take your seat and recline in adjustable chairs, with attentive staff always keen to bring you tableside food, cocktails, and complimentary drinks. Leather-lined walls, precious diamond chandeliers, and elaborate ironwork are just a few of the features of the Venetian poker room. Your players card grants you access to a generous $2 per hour poker comp rate. Earned credits can be redeemed throughout the Venetian, giving discounted meals in the most high-class dining establishments or tableside service. A comprehensive range of free drinks is also open to poker patrons, plus free meal comps for tournament players to power-up during breaks or console themselves after busting out.
Cash games action is hot and heavy at the Venetian. Games are usually stocked with big spenders who feel quite at home in this intense grandeur. Famous pros are often sighted in a healthy mixture of limit hold’em, no limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, Omaha eight-or-better, and mixed game spreads. The Venetian operates the Genesis Bravo system, so players can check-up on running games and view waitlists at any time.
