Caesars Poker Room

Overview

Part of Caesars Palace Casino

Recently relocated between The Colosseum and the Race & Sports Book, Caesars 4,500 square feet poker room features 16 high-quality tables with free upgraded Wi-Fi and USB charging ports at each seat, and chairs (comfortable, wheeled); auto shufflers, food tableside, massage, comps, cash games, TVs, cocktail service, check cashing, and food order service. The room offers 24-hour poker action with cash games of all stakes and four daily No Limit Texas Hold' em poker tournaments.

The room spreads a variety of low and middle limit and NL games (no max buy-in) and multiple daily tournaments.  The daily tourneys have excellent structures with starting chip stacks and level times that offer a generous amount of play (see the Items of Interest for structures).  Caesars' tourneys are among the most popular in Las Vegas, typically drawing 50-100 entrants; see the schedule above.

Waitlists are posted electronically on two LCD screens; it's very easy for players to see their position on the waitlist.  Players can call ahead to get on the list (up to an hour ahead) for their desired game.

The floor staff members are friendly and professional; they do an excellent job of clearing lists and making sure players are seated in their preferred game.  Dealers, too, are pleasant and efficient; unlike some of those we've seen at other casinos, they actually seem to like their job and work to keep play moving and enjoyable.

Caesars serves restaurant quality food at the tables (ask for a menu) and free drinks.

Just got back from 2 days in Vegas and boy did I run terrible. I didn't feel i played my best game at times but I also had some bad beats. I lost 100% (no lie) of my coin flips and lost 2 key hands that crushed me, one when <b>K[s]10[s] </b> > my KQ AIPF and <b>K[d]9[d] </b> > my KK AIPF. Apparently a sooted King is the new aces.
Played 5 of Caesar's $150 tourneys (which are great) and 2 of the Flamingo $65. I'll be back for New Years and will hopefully play and run better.

Whenever I think I’ve seen a twisted hand—BAM!—another more twisted one shows up. On my recent trip to Caesars, I saw two of the sickest hands I've seen in a while. The first took place in the WSOP Circuit Event and was an amazing (maybe crazy) call; the second took place in a 5/10 cash game and, as you'll see, was a somewhat easier one.
<b>Hand 1</b>
With the blinds at 100/200 in the WSOP circuit event, a young man named Brandon raised to 700 from middle position; he was sitting with 20,000 behind. Chris McCormack called from the BB; figure he had 13,000 or so in his stack.
The flop came 10[s] 5[c] 3[d]. Chris checked. Brandon bet 1,200 and Chris called. Turn was the J[c], and Chris checked again. Brandon bet 2,400. Chris thought for about 20 seconds and called. River card was the 2[s]. Chris checked again and Brando fired another 4,500 at the pot. At this point, Chris tanked for about 2 minutes, emerged, counted out 4,500 in chips and called with an A[d]3[c]…4th pair! Brandon tabled 9[c]6[s]—9 high, no good!
I was sitting next to Brandon and he commented to me that he shouldn’t have bet the river. He said that after he made the turn bet, Chris made eye contact with him and he felt Chris knew he didn’t have anything. Later, I asked Chris what he was thinking when he made the call on the river. He shrugged and said that if Brandon flips up QQ, he looks like an idiot. Good point—in poker, the line between genius and idiot is very fine. This willingness to make a tough call for a big chunk of chips when your gut says you are ahead is a common characteristic of great tournament players. And I can confirm that NO ONE at our table tried to bluff Chris out of a pot the rest of the day.
<b>Hand 2</b>
The other stunner I witnessed was in the Caesar's 5/10 NL cash game. I'd been sitting in the game for several hours when Kenna James showed up and took a seat to my right. He'd been sitting for 15 minutes when the following hand came up.
An Asian kid who'd been playing or raising every pot like Bruce Lee on meth limped UTG for $10. There was another limper and then Kenna popped it to $60. Kenna had watched this kid playing pot after pot and I’m guessing he decided it was time to play sheriff. In any event, I folded, and it was folded back to Bruce Lee who rejected Kenna’s aspirations and repopped to $230. The other limper folded and Kenna called. Ok, we’ve got action.
Flop came QQ6 and Asian kid checks to Kenna, who bet $260 into the $470-ish pot. Asian kid called.
Turn was a blank 3. Check. Check. Come on, fellas. This is boooooring.
The river card was a deuce and the chips started flying. Asian kid bet out $300 into the $1000 pot and Kenna SHOVED for his last $1400 or so. Asian kid insta-calls and Kenna flipped over 45s for the rivered straight. Ha! But then Asian kid turns over a frigging HAREM—QUAD queens—and scooped the $4,000 pot. Whoa! Everyone at the table was stunned but none more so than Kenna.
You really can’t fault Kenna for his push on the river. But calling a big re-raise before the flop with 45s can obviously get you in big trouble. At the same time, this willingness to gamble helps get Kenna action when he makes a big hand. Apparently, it's not so good for the appetite, though. He immediately stood up and bolted from the table leaving a bag of food he’d just purchased from the food court. Anybody want some buffalo wings?
God help me, I love this game!

Impressions: This is one of the best card room I've played in. One of the nice features is that it is actually in its own separated room from everything else in the casino. You walk down a hallway to the desk and look to the left at a massive card room.
The competition in the (1/3 nl) cash games seemed tougher to me than any other I've played live.
The tourneys are very good and among the best regular tourneys in Vegas. You get 4500 chips and 40 minute blind levels which allows for a lot of play. The competition in the tourneys is a little tougher than average but definitely beatable for a good player.
Atmosphere: Simply the best. Being in its own separate area is a great feature. The room is massive and quiet. The tables are nice. The cash tables have auto shufflers. The chairs are comfortable.
Dealers: Very good.
Food: Better than average service. The waitresses are not among the most attractive, but they do a good job. I think you can get whatever kind of drinks you want.
Service: The computerized waiting lists seem well organized. I've only played in (1/3 nl) cash games a couple times there but didn't have to wait more than a few minutes either time.
The tourneys are very well organized.
Comps: Don't know, didn't ask.
