I see the game running maybe 5/7 nights. I think the comps are the same as 1/2NL but don't quote me on that. I played one time, but prefer playing higher if I'm playing limit.

1/2 blinds, an opening raise to 6. Normal 4/8 aside from the low blinds.

Thanks for clarifying. I was assuming it played like 2/4 until 4th street and then went 4/8.

Seems weird an opening raise would be to 6, I assumed 4.

Yeah this game has been runnng for a while now...4/8LHE with mini blinds 1/2 and then the standard action post flop..$4 flop bet..$8 turn bet..$8 river bet. I didnt enjoy it the one time i played it but to each his own....it's basically 2/4LHE on steriods.

Comps are probably .50~1.00 per hour

That's the Waterfront Tower, but it is only 44 stories.

Good to hear that. I have plans to see his show - mostly because his wife grew up across the street from me in suburban NJ.

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

I called reservations today to enquire about the poker room rate and she sounded puzzled like she didn't know what I was talking about and said they only offer it if your in a major tournament. If you don't mind me asking how much is the friday poker room rate and how did you arrange it? Im assumeing I should speak directly with the poker room?

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

I just called was told the shift manager isn't around try back in about 30 min which I am going to do. I've only stayed weekdays on comps and occasionally extending my stay for around $60 a night midweek. I started a new job and can't get weekdays off for awhile but have Sat & Sun off yet only mon-thurs comps so I'm in a bit of a pickle. Any have a ballpark figure of what a poker room rate would drop it to on a Saturday? Theres no way I'm going to pay $300+ for one night to grind 1/2NL major -EV!!! I've just been day tripping 3 hours each way on the weekends lately but would much rather stay if it were a reasonable price.

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

I would guess $129-$149 even if they offer a Saturday rate or if there is even room availability.

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

109 is reasonable... How exactly does it work? Do you go and play for the required amount of hours (8 is it?) and than ask for the room or do you book it and get the rate if you complete the hours?

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

Either the poker room will book the room ahead of time at the poker room rate, or sometimes they make you book the room, play the 5 hours, and they will call and reduce rate.

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

Hey guys I was thinking of hitting up Harrah's this sunday to play in the 58+12 turbo bounty tourney at 10:15am. Wanted to get into a good early morning tourney and this seemed liked the best deal and isn't a rebuy like the Trop. Wanted to know how this tournament plays, lots of regulars, lots of old folks? From what I have read the players there overall seem tough, should I give this one a go or just head over to the Borgata 11am 100+20 to try and crush the weekend crowd...which I am.

All feedback appreciated.

Re: Harrah's AC Thread

I always recommend the 1:15pm $68+$12 @ Harrah's for a few reasons:

A) It's pretty much the best deal as far as entry fee goes.

B) There's usually maybe 10 good players and the field is half old guys who get tired after 3 hours and are pretty much always dead money.

C) Their numbers are up now that the summer is in full swing(might have been the 1st of the month effect too though). Last Sunday was 54 players for a $3,672 prize pool which chops nicely at 5 or 6 players leaving you a few hours of sunlight left in your day. Last Sunday only went 12 rounds(~6:00pm) before a chop and the 10:15am "turbo" had barely finished an hour earlier.

Personally, I'd much rather play 54 people for a less money and half the time having a good chance of walking out with ~$500.
