Hi all, I found this thread a great help to me in deciding where to play poker while I was in Paris. Ended up playing 4 nights at Aviation Club, so will update what I noticed.
- Dress rule is not that strict. Seems to be as long as you're not wearing slippers or non-designer sneakers you can get in.
- 100 Euro membership fee. (I tried to pull the "only in town for 4 days" and it didn't work)
- Cash games include NL 2/2, 2/4, 5/5, 5/10 and 2/4 Dealers Choice with 10-game mix. Pretty big waiting list on all nights I was there, sometimes had to wait an hour to sit down. I stayed until 7am on all nights, and there were still plenty of tables going on at this time.
- Non-smoking venue with a dedicated smoking room very close to the poker room by the toilets. They don't sell smokes, but you can buy cigs right outside the venue on Washington street.
- Tipped the waiters 2 Euros for every drink
- Stack sizes varies, but from what I noticed on 2/4 is that most people prefer to buy in very short.
- Entrance was hard to find as it was covered by scaffolding at the time.
- Tournaments running everyday at different stakes, you can pick up a copy of the schedule inside.
Anyways that is all I can think of. Great venue and good value.
Could you guys provide me with some information about The Cercle Wagram casino and TOULOUSE casino in Paris? I would like to know, how many tables are there usually runnning and more importantly what is the rake there. Thanks.
I'm wondering if anyone has played at Pasino in Aix en Provence and whether the barriers to entry were similar to that of the Parisian casinos. Membership fee, uncapped rake, etc. All thoughts/experiences appreciated. Thanks.
In Paris for the next few days. Went to the Aviation Club this afternoon and they are charging the 100 Euro membership fee. Would like to play, but will probably only get one night in and do not want to pay the fee for just that short amount of time.
Didn't see anything in this thread, so just to be clear, has anyone found any rooms here that don't charge a membership fee?
