The Orleans always has some sort of promotion and usually has multiple types of games going on. 3/6 Omaha Hi/Lo, 4/8 Omaha Hi/Lo, 2/4 Holdem, 4/8 Holdem and NL Holdem.

Flamingo has 2 guys who spend 60-80 a week in their room and make a decent living off tourists. Talk to one on every visit and he makes it sound so easy, and even he cant understand why other locals leave the room alone. Hope I didnt out him.

I enjoy a low limit spread limit game. There is a $2-6 spread at Sam's Town. I moved here in 2008 and spent most of everyday at Sam's Town poker room. Moed a few miles even further away and I still mostly play there and at the M. Both of these rooms are non smoking and both offer tourneys. Sam's doesn't have any min guarantee, so if there are only 2 tables, well, its a -EV. The M has a $1,000 guarantee everyday and $3,000 on the weekends. Sam's is usually always busy; the M's used to always be busy but for a long time its been busy for the cash tables but jumping for the tourneys.

Not enough people play poker here to probably make a difference on "outing him". My guess is that many locals/grinders stay away from CET poker rooms like Flamingo because the rake is $5 max + $1 JP drop. Also the more skillful players will also stay away because it's usually only $1/$2 for NL. But if the players are weak enough, it's worth playing in the higher rake room, imo.

It's usually hard to tell if a game with a high rake is beatable, b/c the rake is obviously eating up a lot of money, but you may not be able to find such weak players at higher stakes....

I mean some of these guys at 1/2 are so bad it's ridiculous. But given just a couple of sharks, and a high rake, it may turn out that your table with horrible players is still -EV. And to be completely honest, there's no real sample you can use to figure it out, b/c the players constantly change, so the best you can do is try to use the best table selection possible. Try to find such weak players that the game is boring, and once they bust out stop playing. At least, that's how I'd approach I really fishy high rake game.

If you are worried about "sharks" or other players, you're probably not good enough to be playing at that betting limit.

With a high rake and multiple winning players at a table, your win rate is either really low or non existent; at least that's what I'd think.

In a high limit game the extra $1 or $2 shouldn't make much of a difference. You figure out who the harks are and who the fish are and you try and isolate the fish in hands and keep the fighting amongst sharks to a minimum. As the old saying goes, if you can't figure out who the sucker is at the table within a few minutes of playing, you're it.
