The Poker Room at the Venetian is BEAUTIFUL. No cramped spaces between tables, great lighting, and chairs that may be TOO comfortable. I have never been to a room where I felt more welcome!
I beat their 2-5 no limit game for 2 thousand, so I have no complaints.
The dealers were friendly, accurate, and knowledgable. I was entertained while I was scooping in monster pots.
The beverage staff was never out of sight for more than a few minutes. Not to mention that they are also beautiful.
The management was superb. They sat me, got my chips offered me (and provided me with) a comp card which I used for $15 off dinner at Grand Luxe Cafe' (also Excellent!) after only 7 or 8 hours of play.
No bad-beat jackpot of any other types of "gimmicks", but their comp system is very good, offering 1.5 dollars an hour.
