Is it worth it ?? Around 200 bucks round trip for cab . To play what some consider the best BJ in LV , according to the ( LVBJS).

.13 HE, sounds good !!! But is it worth 2 benjis , I am staying on the strip.

Could hit the tez for a .30 HE, what do you think ?

By the way my flight to wendover got cancelled :(, so we booked a flight to LV this AM last min.

Just looking for the best tables !!

Any input much appreciated !!:)

You can probably find a limo/car-for-hire for much less than the cab fare. Or maybe you could hitch with a hoover dam tour?

The Hacienda is fun and interesting, but unless you're betting huge you won't recoup the cost of the trek.

Definitely not worth it. The .13% is not enough to drive out there. That said, if you are going to the Hoover Dam, it is a fun, and like you said, a good game.

I will be submitting a review of the Hacienda to the Wizard shortly.

Don't get hung up on house edge. Are you counting? Penetration is far more important.

Couldn't agree more. Lotsa penetration would be the highlight of my day.

A $2 BJ wouldn't be bad either.

No. Now if it were a trip across The Strip or a trip across town in a limousine.. but that distance? Forget the 200.00... just the TIME is worth more at a "worse" table on the strip.

How long will it take you to lose 200.00 at decent rules? So much are you really saving by spending the 200.00 to get to some supposedly ultimate rules? And what if they ban you once you get there because you are winning?

Rent a car for the day, go see the new bridge above the dam, and stop in Boulder. Play at the Hacienda. It would be worth it. It's about 25 miles by cab. That's insane.
