Some low - limit fun

Reports & Blogs by dontbam about Caesars Palace Posted

I got into vegas on a gambling trip with friends on a late friday night. We decided only to book a room saturday night so that we could play through friday night and then hope to sleep early saturday morning-afternoon if our room was ready. Luckly, we got comped a free night at Palace station (where we were staying) in one of their courtyard "suites." The courtyard room was a piece of sh*t and was a set for robbery or murder...yikes. I will never stay there again. On the second night the TOWER room was actually quite nice. I think it was simliar if not better (but older) than the rooms that you can find at Golden Nugget. I hear they are renonvating these rooms so they will be very modern. I would definetly stay here again.

ON TO THE POKER. With some winnings from baccarat earlier, I headed over to Caesar's Palace to check out their poker room. I've been there once before and really like the atmosphere and room. Today I decided that I wanted to play low limit so that I could get drinks and have fun with the couple of guys I headed out on this trip with.

I sat down a $3/$6 game and immeadiately knew that no one really knew how to play. There was this middle-aged woman calling every bet and even calling river bets with king high and taking it down once or twice before busting eventually. There were 2-3 local rocks that were pretty obvious to spot so I avoided them and took advantage of them when I had the opportunity. There was one guy in seat 3 that knew how to play but played too fast and overly aggressive. I could tell he was an online player at the speed of his call/bets. He would straddle to $6 in a call station game which kind of made no sense to me so whenever he did, I always re-raised it to $9 to get it heads up. I took down every pot except for the last hand I played where I called him down with A-4 instead of raising him (I played the hand bad).

Overall, I won some nice pots off completley new players at the table who were asking how much each $1 chip was worth (LOL). I walked away + $80 and called it a day with 3 beers down. My friend who was playing at an adjacent table was playing 3/6 for the first time in his life and he ended up winning $200 on flopped quads and three full houses in a about beginner's luck! He would have made more if he bet/raised in the correct way, oh well.

Caesar's has a nice room and I would definetly come back again to check out their no-limit and tournaments but I just had no time with friends to take care of and hang out with.

  1. Baccarat? Good times. Do you bet player or banker (or alternate?).

    Caesars is an interesting animal. My brother in law loves it there, as he likes 3/6. I like their NL cash game structure (same as TIs), but the room has never been one of my favorites.

    Glad you had a good time, and thank you for posting!
