Hi.

Looks like I will be staying at Area some days in July..Probably 11-14th or something. Looking to play a tournament or two and some cash. Questions:

1) Will the buyins for the daily tournaments stay the same or will they be higher on these dates?

2) Any guess on attendance numbers at all? Yeah, I know its hard to predict...

3) Will posting questions in this thread make me run good?

Kat, I am booked to stay at Aria in late June. Do I need to call the poker room before my trip to get the poker room rate or can I just stop by when I check in?

Also, are you spreading limit hold 'em frequently? I never seem to see it listed on the facebook updates.

Might be really basic question, but anyway: can I give the cage cash and/or chips at the end of my stay and ask them to write a cheque for that amount? Say they have no idea where those chips or cash came from. My inclination would be no, but if they could then this would solve a lot of my problems.

Another question: Can you buy into a poker game with chips? i.e. give your host a 5K chip and they get you smaller chips suitable for your game. Or only with cash?

You can buy into a poker game with chips. We have a cage in the poker room that can break chips down to whatever denomination is applicable to whatever game you are sitting. As far as a cheque from the cage goes, they can but it can only be based upon what they know to be your winnings

This might have already been asked and answered but can we have a breakdown of the RAKE and any other applicable charges applied to the pots in the ARIA room...?

rake % ?
Bad beat % etc. ?

Do you run any sort of rakeback promotion ?
Aria (Las Vegas, NV) Quote
05-17-2011 , 12:08 PM
10% up to 4$ on 1/3 NL
4$ max on 2/5 NL
timecharge at 5/10+ NL
rake reduction (if you ask) is possible for 6 players or less at the table!

In general the Aria room is 9handed (in the NL games).

Comps:
2$ per hour of play, 3$ between 5-10am. no bad-beat jackpot, no highhand jackpot.

This was scheduled to expire relatively soon. Has there been any decision with regards to extending it through the WSOP?

Dear Aria,

Can you please, please, please stop having your dealers automatically pull the bets into the pot when there is a raise? It is so unnecessary and tilting. I put out my chips the way I want them, only to have the dealer grab them, re-arrange them, and take some of them and throw them in the pot thus making my raise look smaller. Leave my bets alone.

If you have a beef with that you might want to address it to just about every B&M, as it's pretty standard to do it that way. I can't think of the last place I've been to where they didn't do this. Personally, I have no problem with it. Speeds the game up and I don't really believe in the psychological aspect you're referring to.

I do, I ask every dealer at every casino not to pull my bets when I'm involved in the pot (often stopping them mid pull).

The Venetian doesn't, or at least they're not supposed to in heads-up pots, but a lot of the dealers do it anyway.

Edit: I also talked to Leon about this and he said he was considering changing it. LOTS of mid-high stakes players prefer dealers to not pull the bets, whereas (I think) lower stakes players generally like it.

Pulling the bets also leads to confusion when there's multiple raises, something more common at higher stakes, hence what I said in my edit above.

Player 1 bets 40.
Player 2 raises to 100.
--Dealer pulls in the 40 from each player, leaving 60 in front of player 2.
Player 1 announces "make it 300."

How much more will player 2 have to put in to call? Some would say 200, some would say 240.

And those some would be wrong.

Hi Kat. Just got back from a few night stay at Aria and was just curious what your policy on opening a new table is. I wanted to get in one last session before my flight yesterday, but the wait took too long. I put my name on a list for 1/3 at around 11am, and was the 8th on the list (there were 2 1/3 tables running). After about 30 min, I was up to 5th on the list, which was now 12 people deep. I asked the floor if there was any plan to open a new table, to which he gave me an eye roll and attitude responding "shortly". 20 minutes later I was out of time, still no seat or new table, and decided to head out.

I had a good experience the first two days, just unfortunate I was left with a pretty bad taste in my mouth. Unfortunately I think I'll be sticking with the B on my future visits.

Under your same logic, making it 300 could mean Player 2 has to call 300 more.

Whenever someone says "Make it XXX" that means it replaces whatever bet you made earlier. So instead of you putting 40 in, it means you've put 300 in during that round, and he's put 100 in, making it 200 more to go.

Also if someone really meant to bet 340 they should say 340, the only time I ever hear players make a raise of a certain size when it comes to adding to their bet is when they say "XXX MORE", which means add that bet to their previous bet.

If Player A would have said "Make it 300 MORE", then it's 240. But he didn't say more. So it's 300 total.

Can someone explain the comp system? I have played in the room a few times in the past couple of weeks and I went into a restaurant and they said I had nothing on my card. Do I have to do something to receive these comps? Kind of disappointing.

Of course... except the dealer ruled (and both players in the hand agreed) that it was $240 more for Player 2 to call. I questioned the decision but dropped it quickly since neither player seemed to care and I wasn't in the hand anyway.

This was at Venetian, not Aria, fwiw.

Just take your card to the desk next to the cage in the poker room and ask for a comp, they print you out a slip that you can then take to the restaurant. I'm not sure if you can use them at places other than Skybox and Lemongrass though.

I called the poker room office, emailed Kat, and PMed her here and still got no answer. I wanted to book my room at the poker room rate through the poker room office. Do I need to confirm with the poker room before I book my hotel room in order to get the poker room rate? Will I get it no matter how I book my room(through the Aria's website?) or what price I got the room at as long as I book the deluxe room? And finally, if I book online using one of the online promotions such as this...https://reservations.mgmmirage.com/b...Main50DRC51811... will I still get the perks of that offer as well as the poker room rate? Or should I book the room straight up without any other offers to be safe.

Thanks,
Jamaal84

A simple search of the word 'rate' in this thread answered your first question.

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...&postcount=407

A simple search of the word 'promotion' in this thread answered your third question.

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...&postcount=306

I'm sure your 2nd question is answered somewhere in this thread as well.
