How high is high?
Most casinos have high limit areas on the floor. These are open and anybody can wander thru. Yeah, they have signs that say that they are for high limit players only, but nobody cares unless you make a nuisance of yourself.
Some casinos also have 'private' areas for the very high limit players. Sometimes, you wouldn't even know it exists.
About three years ago, I was at Foxwoods, heading to my hotel room with the wife. For no particular reason, we hit the button for the top floor, just to see what, if anything, was up there.
To our surprise, it opened to a counter with a receptionist. Behind her was the highest limit tables. She explained that it was exclusive for the high limit players. She didn't go any further to 'qualify' us, nor did we ask.
In retrospect, I wonder if her job was anything more than merely keeping out the riff-raff.
However, she did say that we happened to stop in when there weren't any players, so we could look around if we wanted to.
So we looked around.
Sorry I can't provide any details. I simply don't remember how big it was, or how many tables or what kinds of tables.
All I remember is that it was so dark that I wouldn't want to play there. Even if I had a whale as a buddy, and they allowed me to play next to him at $5 levels - I wouldn't play.
On a side note, do casinos allow that? I.E. If a $1,000+ player wants his $5 buddy to play next to him, is it allowed?
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood?
Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.
