Go to a real casino. lol Borgata is the onl place you'll see 2/5 on a regular basis. Maybe Harrahs or GN on occasion. GL

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

Why is it that $2/$5 NL can't be spread on a regular basis? Comps are decent.

Player pool, rake, overall room??? Crazy that Borg has several always going, yet B and H do not.

Walk into ballys. Stop,and look around.

Then walk into Borgata, stop and look around. The answer will become clear.

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

Room is poorly run, it's the dirty boardwalk. There's a variety of reasons. In general when you have arguably one of the top 5 poker rooms in the country what across town, why would people go elsewhere to play?

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

I like the atmosphere of this room. I take the bus from NYC all the time and the room is close to the bus station. I mainly play low stakes NL and they run a lot of promotions. It may not be the Borgata but it's still decent. Too bad their poker room doesn't get that much love here in Atlantic City.

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

I like to play at Bally's and stay there too because the wife (and sometimes child when he comes along) likes the boardwalk and the late night games are usually juicy with horribad drunk degens throwing away several buy-ins.

Also, I never seem to recall playing or running well at Borgata but that could be small sample size combined with confirmation bias.

Apparently they haven't been doing food vouchers for over a year now. I'm not sure why given that Harrahs AC still does.

I played there on a Friday about a month ago. Same old same old. 1/2NL and 2/4LH high hand chasing games. Bad players at my table. Still running 5K guarantee tourneys. Not a real hotspot of 2+2ers. Nothing special imo about the room overall. Drab old school AC room feel. Check bravo and you'll see the real.

In response to cardzone again. I'm here now. 3 2/4 games 6 1/2 games and 82 entrants in the 5K tourney tonight. Action seems ok. Same room as it ever was

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

Going to AC next weekend & Might check the room out but I agree.... The room feels old and not as fun as the others in AC. Def needs updating. Still dont understand y they took the Caesars room out. That place was always fun. I think they felt WWW Casino was going to waste.

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

I still like playing at Ballys. It's got a unique charm to it. Very underrated. It only runs 1/2 NL, 2/4 limit and the occasional 2/5 NL but I like it. And during Friday and Saturday evenings, when you take a break, its a short walk to the Wild Wild West playroom with beer pong, table games and live music.

Re: Bally's Wild Wild West Thread (Atlantic City, NJ)

Hadn't been to Wild west in probably 10 years. Wild west had a good/college vibe FWIW. Definitely a more fun place to hang out than say borgata for non poker activities. Also has 10x odds at dice which is nice if you wanna tee off on coin flips.
