Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

Hey guys, Harrah's used to be my spot in my days of grinding $1/$2. Just wondering if there's ever hopes of stopping by for a $5/$10 game at any point. I'd love to catch up with Pete if he's still there, as well as some of the other dealers. This place will always be my favorite room, it was always the most fun and welcoming. If there are any specific times to come down or call ahead looking for a $5/$10 (maybe during the circuit events or something?) just let me know. If I'm ever in the room (my friends love going to the Pool and using my comps!), I'll be wearing an orange Nike hoodie playing whatever the highest limit game is. Don't be shy and come say what's up!

5/10 NL rarely runs at Harrah's. Once in a while on a Friday or Saturday night, but rarely. It usually does run during the WSOP Ciruit event in December.

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

i saw an ad in the Philadelphia Weekly newspaper for the 2011 WSOP Circuit event

any details because the Harrah's AC website did not have a link to this info.

a link with blind structures would be appreciated

thanks

When does this game usually run? I have to be in Margate for work next week (and can pick the time/day) and so had planned on stopping somewhere in AC. Also, does anything bigger than 4/8 LHE ever run during the week?

The game runs almost every day, but usually breaks up early in the evening.

You're much more likely to find it going on weekdays than weekends.

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

Every time I've stayed at Harrahs it has either been in the harbor or marina towers. Thinking about stepping it up this time and staying in the atrium suites or the new tower by the pool. Could some please compare the two and recommend which I should choose. There will be myself and two others also in the room.

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

The Atrium is closer to the poker room and has 2 rooms that can be closed from each other by a sliding door. There is a sofa in the front room that folds out to what I'm told is a comfy bed (I've never tried it myself.)

The tower can be noisier, with noise from the Pool below being heard loud and clear even on the 34th floor!

Personally, I prefer the Atrium rooms. But, others prefer the Water Tower.

Your milage may vary......

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

I have a question regarding the WSOP Circuit Harrah's events I got in the mail.

I have never played this before but do winning these tournaments get you a seat at the WSOP Main Event for 2012 in Vegas???

There are so many listed so I can't figure out what winning each one does If someone can give a high level explanation I'd appreciate it.

The numbered events (that mostly begin at Noon daily) win you cash as well as a WSOP ring.

The Non Ring events are played for cash (no championship ring).

The Satellite events win you entry into another tournament (either the WSOP Circuit Championship at Harrahs or the WSOP in Vegas)

Played today and the dealers seemed to be programmed with marketing info.

The 4 Harrah's properties brought back the $50,000 freeroll for December.

They also started a 4 properties facebook page facebook.com/TotalACPoker

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

Heading to Harrah's for the first time tomorrow. Is it worth my while to play 1/2NL there or am I better off making the short drive over to the Borgata instead?

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

The 1/2 games at Harrah's are fine, in my opinion. Why go elsewhere?

Seriously, in A.C. at least, the 1/2 games are pretty much the same, overall, no matter which casino one is in.

Re: Harrah's Resort (Atlantic City, NJ)

With the WSOP Circuit in town, the room was hopping on Sunday. 3 $5-$10 tables, and a slew of $2-$5s. Competition was tougher than normal (earned ~1 BI). Great to see the room packed. Congrats to the staff.
