The room is better than I expected based on the reviews I'd read here. I was under the impression it was smack dab in the midst of the casino floor amongst the blackjack tables and bars, but in fact it occupies its own corner and is isolated from everything else once you're inside. Sure, it's not walled off or quiet, but it is a distinct area, and the close proximity to the bar is a good thing if you enjoy the drink service.

The waiting list was long whenever I tried to play. I believe they were spreading $2/$4, $3/$6, $4/$8 (2 tables), and $1/$2 NL (2 tables), and all of the lists had 2-8 people before me. Took me at least 1/2 hour to get onto a table each time. They have a computerized waitlist management system which they apparently installed the day before I played there, because I didn't recall seeing it two days earlier, and they were still kind of figuring it out.

The $4/$8 game I played had a normal structure, unlike the $4/$8 at other cardrooms where they use half-sized blinds and a half kill, which totally screw up the game. Rake was up to $4, with no jackpot drop.

The $1/$2 NL game ($100-$200 buy-in) had a normal structure.

Contrary to the editor's review, they do have weekly tournaments of not only holdem but also pineapple and crazy pineapple.

Fish fish fish. I made $50/hr at the $4/$8 table. The NL table was a lot more dangerous, but still beatable.

Nothing exceptional sticks out in my mind.

Fast service, generally good looking waitresses.

As I mentioned, they seem to have just installed a new computer system for managing the waitlist. The waiting area is quite inconvenient as it consists of the aisle between the brush desk and some blackjack tables. I suppose you could wait at the bar too. Management was competent when I got a chance to talk to them, but they were severely understaffed on the days I played, so sometimes nobody would be manning the check-in desk at all. The dealers also had a very hard time getting more chips delivered from the cashier when they were running low. The place really needs more employees.

None, just free drinks.
