    Thread title says it all. I'm heading to Las Vegas for the first time in over a year - seems like forever. :stunned:

    Anyway, going out for a convention, but taking a few extra days beforehand to visit and play a bit of poker. Any new or massively changed card rooms or casinos that I shouldn't miss? The WSOP starts the weekend I'm going so I'll probably check out the Rio if I can get near it. I'm staying at the Hilton just off strip.

    What's new and special that I should incoporate? TIA.

    I played at the Luxor 3 nights in a row. We played at other places, but I had the most fun there. The dealers were great! They kept the game moving, but really knew how to have a good time. I loved playing there. Im going to write a review for there pretty soon, so if you haven't left check it out. One awesome point is a high hand jackpot every hour. Any full house or higher that you use both cards and the pot is over $20 qualifies. It pays $150 every hour.

    Planet Hollywood's poker room is pretty new...not to bad with good cheap tourneys.

    If you haven't played in the Venetian noon tourney...best tourney in Vegas for the price ($150) and structure.

    Harrah's Casino with all there Casinos run free shuttles to the Rio. Hopefully you can hit a shuttle from the Hilton to the strip then to the Rio. If your a cheap ass like me....I like to think I'm taking in the sites.

    Last year I was in Vegas for the WSOP (mid month). You have to check out that place. It's awesome...all the pros, tons of tables, lots of action with cash tables, and tons of satellites. I played in a seven card 8/b satellite, had a blasted. I also watched some of the $50,000 HORSE event.

    Good Luck with your trip,

    I'll be there form May 30-June8. Ceasars has the Mega stack series going on...CardPlayer.com - Poker Tournament Coverage. If you like to play cash 1/2 NL I recommend the MGM...they get 7-12 tables every night and the action is great.

    Thanks for the ideas guys - they're already on my PDA as reminders. Keep 'em coming, I don't leave for a week. :)

    I'm a fan of the Imperial Palace room. Its loud and dirty, but the competition is typically drunk and soft!
