Re: Biloxi

If you want a closer location, try the Ebro poker room at Ebro Greyhound Park. Its negative as compared to Biloxi is the Florida law $100 max buy in, but its positives are that it's closer than Biloxi, and has very fishy players due to their lack of experience playing larger stacks.

Re: Biloxi

The buffet at the Beau must be fantastic because there was about 300 people waiting in line at 2p. I would not wait that long to eat Beyonce. Well...

Just get a comp from the poker room and hit the VIP line. And yes as most have said the Beau is the best pace to play hands down IMO. Can't wait for my next trip over there.

isnt the beau buffet expernsive.. i heard like $45 or some ****..i played for 2 hours paid $24 in rake did not win a hand and I dont think i got comped sht.. what u guys do? I play at hard rock and get comped all the time for food at buffet and hard rock cafe if i play bj.

games at IP and BEAU are plentiful. Prob at least always 3 tables going, up to 10. Hardrock is about 1-3. All are uncapped I believe but MIN buyin is $60 everywhere except beau is $100 min. The players at beau typically have a lot of cash and buyin for a lot it seems. I think I saw $5k on a 1/2 nl table, i thought that **** was 2/5. Beau does have 2/5 though in addition whereas no where else does to my knowledge. I am not sure what the time is or MIN but I bet its a lot.
Looser players and prob the best action can be found at beau. If you have a bankroll of at least 5-6 buyins or jusst 2-3 large ones you could do well here.
Comps wise there right IP comps u rooms 2 nites.. but beau does that as well for new players. I am still trying to find out how to get room at hard rock or concert tickets to events at any of the three. They claim to mail them to you a month in advance once on the list.

good luck donks

what are you guys doing for new years?

whats best?

New orleans
biloxi
pensicola
panama city
etc. unknown

or should i jsut spend $500 and go to vegas for the weekend

Re: Biloxi

The Beau buffet is around $20 per person and its decent. Nothing overly spectacular. It is only a buffet in the end though. The poker room comps meals every 4 hours of live play I believe it is. The Hard Rock games suck. Ray Charles could navigate his way thru those tables. The Beau games usually have tremendous action and sometimes are extremely fishy.

If you ever wanted to go to LV for NYE, now is the time to do it.

Room occupancies are way down. I have not checked room rates, but they have to be better now than they have been for years for Dec 31. And they probably are not putting the onerous requirements of previous years for multiple day stays.

Re: Biloxi

I'm looking to stay a week at the Beau Rivage and heard they had a poker room rate. Anyone know how I get the rate?

Re: Biloxi

Talked to the Pensacola Greyhound Track on Tuesday. They are planning on late Jan or early Feb to open the card room there. They are staffing and training now.

Call Donna in the poker room. She will set you up with the poker rate. It is 5 or 6 hours of play per day. I can't remember.

Re: Biloxi

I'm a Biloxi native and I've played all of the casinos down here with the exception of Boomtown (the only casino around that still allows smoking in the poker room) and I play regularly at the IP.

The Beau has the most action most of the time, but I absolutely hate the time drop. If you want to play PL Omaha, 2/5NL, or 5/10NL the Beau on a Friday or Saturday night is about your only shot.

Throughout the holidays the IP has been running about four 1/2 NL tables and three 4/8 tables during the week. Last weekend we had all ~20 tables packed. As far as comps go, I've heard it stated that the comp rate in the IP poker room is around $2/hr.

Sweet! I still can't believe we'll have a poker room in this town.

I am planning a trip to Biloxi and decided on IP due to thier room rates(on expedia they are like $55 a night mon thru fri).

How are the games during the week usually?

Does anyone have any experience playing online using the IP's free wifi?
Do they block poker sites?


thanks

yeah i wouldnt wanna put up with that for sure. but can stud ever be found in biloxi anywhere anymore? probably not.

where can u find a really cheap room by the week there? didnt all the low cost motels get totally destroyed in the hurricane and the only ones still standing be the expensive ones in the casinos? and they dont have cheap rates like vegas.

havent been there in about 5-6 years. id like to hear about ALL the poker rooms in biloxi in this thread not just the beau, IP and hardrock. what about the isle of capri, the grand, the lady luck, the copa, and the president and treasure island, and boomtown. wheres the absolute cheapest NL buyin? any for $40-60 instead of $100? those rooms all close down after the hurricane or something?
