I believe TI has one of the best poker rooms in Vegas. I travel the NW and west playing poker in major cities. I have a good perspective on the elements of what makes a room a good one.
Overall many tourists with a few grinders and a few young guns. Great mix between action (nights and weekends) and solid poker (days).
The dealers, as a group are the best I have encountered in Vegas. End of story. Their knowledge and professionalism far exceeds the average. They make the effort to get to know you as a player…but always get out the maximum number of hands and strictly enforce the TI set rules. Fairness is not an issue.
Great Service, attention to detail...only complaint, the room needs Crown Royal :-)
Management staff is excellent, always courteous, professional and willing to have fun with the players. They make you feel like this is a poker room where you want to come back and play again.
The poker room at TI, over the last two weeks, is the busiest I have seen it during the last 3 years. More tables are available for extended hours of play in the cash games. This is what most players want…an opportunity to play at almost any hour of the day with table selection. The rakeback program, in addition to the extended hours of poker play that it has created for the room, is an excellent bonus. No other room in Vegas has come up with a plan that is this innovative. I expect a few will be copying it in the near future.
