I've never been in the high limit section of a casino. Are you allowed to go in and just watch? Or is that frowned upon?

Any time I go to a dog track, I like to watch the 1 huge poker game that is going on. Crazy to see that much money being bet every hand.

Excellent postů

my thoughts:

C/P - excellent high limit room - I am fond of a few of the dealers therein and what makes it extra nice is the private cashier window

Paris - only played there once for about an hour - no real thoughts about it - just felt like any other room

GN - it does feel like a hallway - but, the dealers are friendly and the pit staff is helpful (although no private cashier)

Aria - a beautiful room - runs very hot and cold for me (would like there to be a private cashier (although you can go ingot he host office, you still have to leave the high limit room to do so))

In reference to the question about watching.

My experience is it depends on how you are watching. Are you being unobtrusive and not bothering anyone. You'll probably be fine. If you're loud, drunk, stupid, or gawk like a tourist who has never seen a black chip, not to mention anything higher, you'll probably be asked to play or leave. They don't want to chase out a real gambler though.

Funny story, I was playing in AC once in the "high limit" room at Harrah's. The room is usually only $50 a hand for BJ. Anyway, I was playing and doing pretty well, then this guy stood behind me, he reeked of booze, and needed a shower, he was muttering to himself and making comments about every play. It seemed like I had lost every hand since he got there. So after a brutal double down loss. I turned around and said why don't you sit down and play; or go the bleep away. He said "f**k you, sat down and asked for a 8K marker, which he was quickly given. So clearly he was known there. He played with me for a while and we were both making money. I apologized, bought him a free drink, and we had a good session. Both made money. But I swear I though he was a bum off the street. Not a guy with and established line of credit. So you never know.

I'm sure some of them frown upon it, but the handful that I've been in have been more than welcoming, chatting me up, answering my questions, and telling me stories of action they've seen (no names, of course). Whenever I'm in a high limit salon, I'm always sure to conduct myself as if I'm in a library.

Thanks.

I do like the GN, but its the weirdest feeling being where the pit is located, actually part of that hallway/breezeway. And yes, the personnel tries hard, just there is no real money on the tables I guess. I think the reason I can't do anything there is-the absence of 'mojo' sort of. Hard to explain.

You are spot on about Paris.

I strictly play HL and NO you will not have a problem to enter and watch. There is seldom ever any security blocking the doorways. Only a handful of times at C.P. and Bellagio have I ever seen security there special, and that was due to Andrew Dice Clay, Alex Baldwin or some other celeb being in the main part of the HL and not in a private room in the rear of them. You are allowed to stand and watch, try not to get up on top of the players, other than that, there is no problem watching.

I'm assuming jumping in on someone's shoe for one $300 hand wouldn't be advisable either? ;)

You can enter any shoe of baccarat at anytime. Unless there is a 'Reserved' sign on the table. I think all BJ would be 'no-mid shoe entry'. At BJ the norm is usually if someone is playing alone and it is off hour, not a Friday or Saturday night and crowded, etc., ask "is it okay if I join you". Kind of stops any ill-will and some do really want one on one without having a reserved table. But that is up to you as to how you feel about asking. Just IMHO. At baccarat it is always a community game anyways unless that table is Reserved. Most tables are $100 min. CP/B/Mirage has numerous $300 and $500 and a few $1k min tables. Read the signs that are clear to save embarrassment. Baccarat doesn't matter one hand or not. Not one player can change the cards.
