I think this is some of the best advice ITT. Rooms in which 1/2 or 1/3 are usually the highest NL games occasionally will get a 2/5 game going, and usually this will indeed be the softest 2/5 game you're going to find in LV, because the players will be almost 100% tourists, and generally not too serious/experienced players.
The problem of course is finding these games when they do happen.
I was in the Mirage about three weeks ago, just walking through, and I saw a list for 2/5 with about 6 names on it. I asked if there were any chance of the game actually going, and was told that if I would add my name to the list, they'd call it immediately. I did, they did, and the table filled within about 15 minutes. Best table I've been at in months.....
Otherwise, among the rooms which run 2/5 every day, I think it's almost random as to which tables might be soft at any given time.
