I got to Vegas on Saturday the 20th for a trip with my family knowing that I would play limited poker but would probably get a couple hrs in per day. Staying at Harrah's, my typical stop is the 3-6 LHE game. This game is usually fun and typically profitable in some capacity. I played 3 nights there and made money 2 of the 3 days. The first night I was literally card dead for 3 hours, was essentially blinded out and lost my buy in.
On Sunday we headed down to MGM to try out the new .50/1 NLHE game that they have. For someone like me who cant afford to play good strong TAG poker at 1/2 NLHE, this game is awesome !! $50 max buy in and its no limit. It feels a lot like playing online with betting patterns etc but I really enjoyed it. I realize that most of the people who read this site are not like me with the same limitations in bankroll, but if you are like me, give this game a try. They call it "beginner NL" and in some ways it is. I can honestly say that I have seen much worse poker played in many 1/2 NL games that I have played in. Its not a game where you are going to make a ton of money but if you are playing good poker, it can definitely be profitable.
