Casino hidden fee during Poker tourney?
Hello, Just wanted to see if anyone else has ever encountered this, and if this is the norm. I've only played a few live tournaments: Buyin, as listed on the receipt: $46+9+5 (46 buyin, 9 admin fee, 5 player fee), and optional $5 add-on (add 5k to bring your starting stack to 20k). 41 people bought in (verified this with floor) $46 x 41 = 1886 Total prize pool listed was $1804 1st: 776 2nd: 415 3rd: 253 4th: 198 5th: 162 Unaccounted for: $82 I asked the floor if the buyin # was correct (41 ppl), she confirmed. I told her $82 was missing from prizepool (around 4.3%!). She said it would be fixed. 30 mins later I ask again, she said she'll get to it. An hour later, I'm told that no money is missing, that there's a $2 per player fee taken by casino. I ask where this is listed, on any sign, receipt, online, etc. She says its not listed. I'm confused by this, as this seems extremely shady (today its a $2 fee, tomorrow it can change to 3, 5 even without anyone knowing? Also, what is the $5 player fee then?) I ask for the manager who comes down, and I say I'm a little confused by the prize pool. Here's our convo: Me: $46 x 41 = 1886. The prize pool listed is $82 short, which doesn't seem like much but it's 4%. Him: Ah, yes, we take a $2 fee per person. Me: Is this listed anywhere or are people supposed to not notice? Him: It's not listed anywhere Me: That seems really...wrong Him: I agree - I'll bring it up at the next manager meeting that we should list it out on the receipt. He then proceeded to comp me a meal and said anytime I'm there to see him for a comped meal. Seems really...off. Is this a norm for a hidden, unwritten fee to be on a poker tourney? I ended up chopping in a 6 way chop, for anyone curious.
I have no illusions of ever going pro, just want to explore live poker more in a responsible way. Ive played casual home games for a few years and won way more than anyone else in the friend group. Started playing in the casino about 6 weeks ago (1 3 NL). Only 6 sessions played so far, but Ive won every time. My strategy has been to come to the casino with 2 buyins ($600) and play til I lose it or feel like the time is right. I've busted my 1st buy-in 2 of 6 times, but earned it back plus profit in both of those sessions. Also, I feel like I came in with the wrong attitude both of those times i had to dip into the full $600. I also went down to Harrahs Cherokee and played a $100 buy-in tournament last week. Ended up finishing 15th out of 396 for a nice $486 payout. I was happily surprised with the result being my first tournament. Obviously this is a super tiny sample size. That said, Im 7 for 7 getting paid, up over $1200 and couldnt have anticipated a better result. Im planning on keeping this general strategy and trying to do approx 10 hours a week at my local casino. Am I going about this the right way? Anything I could do to assess whether or not Im a winner more efficiently? (I think I would likely be worse at online poker and am not really trying to enter that realm) Any feedback is appreciated!
I have time off this week and I wanted to hit up AC for the first time. I've casually played poker with friends and also played when online poker was still legal but I'm a bit rusty since I haven't really played in a few years. The Borgata Poker Open is going on right now but I didn't want to jump right into the big buyin tournies. I would like to try out a small stakes tourney just to get a feel for live play in a casino. I see that Ballys, Trop, harrahs and Golden Nugget run daily tournies for ~$50 buyin. Which of these are the best on any given day?
Week of 9/9 Vegas Tournaments in Review - according to bravo poker app
Hey poker, Same intro as last week's post... I'm a longtime lurker, sometimes contributor on this sub. Aside from the hand analyses, BBVs, and memes, I see the occasional "heading to Vegas" post asking for tournament options. Over the past two weeks I've been keeping an eye on the Bravo Poker App for tournament information and logging them in hopes that this will help make visitors' decisions easier on when/where to play. Disclaimer: Only daily/weekly tournaments are logged. i.e. Venetian is currently running one of their Deepstack Extravaganzas and none of their events were logged.

Tournaments for Station Casinos (Red Rock, GVR, etc.) and a number of other poker rooms were not logged since they do not list their live tournament clocks on the Bravo Poker App. I could also only log live tournament clocks when I was not working nor asleep, so some tournament information may be missing.

Complete 2015 WSOP National Championship schedule announced
The World Series of Poker is going to bring together the best players in the world in Las Vegas in 2015, just as it does every single year. While this is the highlight of the year for poker players, the National Championship are just as exciting for players from United States and the event is scheduled to start on July 23. For exactly 10 days, players will spend some quality time in the Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina, while pitting their skills against each other. Many of those who usually play only over the Internet participate in this tournament, with the last editions being dominated by Sky Poker. With online gambling being illegal in most American states, including North Carolina, it is only fair to say that this event is highly anticipated by all the fans of this beautiful game. The National Championship is the final installment of the WSOP Circuit and will be broadcasted by ESPN, with a total of two hours of coverage. Players will be competing nationwide, with a total of 14 stops and the winner will collect the coveted WSOP gold bracelet as well as a slice of the guaranteed prize pool. It currently stands at $1 million, but it is usually exceeded, as the interest for this competition is tremendous. One year ago, Dominik Nitsche emerged victorious and won $350,000 in addition to the priceless bracelet and he's expected to return to defend his trophy. Check out the complete 2015 National Championship Schedule below: Thursday, July 23 12 p.m. 1: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $250Friday, July 24 12 p.m. 2: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $3655 p.m. 3a: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $365Saturday, July 25 12 p.m. 3b: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $3655 p.m. 3c: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $365Sunday, July 26 3 p.m. 4: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $135Monday, July 27 12 p.m. 5: No-Limit Hold'em Six-Max Reentry $365Tuesday, July 28 2 p.m. 6: High Roller Reentry $3,250Wednesday, July 29 12 p.m. National Championship2 p.m. 7: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $365Thursday, July 30 12 p.m. 8: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $3655 p.m. 9: High Roller #2 Reentry $5,300Friday, July 31 12 p.m. 10: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $5805 p.m. 11: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $250Saturday, August 1 12 p.m. 12a: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $1,1255 p.m. 12b: No-Limit Hold'em Reentry $1,125Sunday, August 2 3 p.m. 13: No-Limit Hold'em Turbo Reentry $365 from via Casinoreviews

Vegas trip soon! Softest NLHE tournies - thoughts on my list?
Hi all, I've seen similar threads, but I'm sure you /poker sharks have some fresh [blood] opinions. I've been wanting to go to vegas to play poker since I was 11 years old, and this is my first time with a small bankroll I'm putting towards a 5 day extravangaza (<$1k). If I can, I aim to cycle low-range (35-75) buyin NLHE tournaments and if things go well I may go to the 75-200 range, but this isn't something I'll bother planning [incoming thread if needed haha] for now. I've looked at pokeratlas / br.. something poker app (my phone is dead), and I think I'm going to start off playing morn/afternoon/evening games at some of the following, mostly due to proximity and buyin-range: Evening list: -Hard Rock Las Vegas ($35 buyin, 4k stack, 20min) -Golden Nugget ($45 buyin, 5k stack, 20min) -Rio ($65 buyin, 10k stack, 20min) -Mandalay Bay ($65 10k stack, 15min) Morning List: -MGM Grand ($70, 15k chips, 20 min) -Bally's ($75, 8k chips, 20min) -Harrah's (5k, 20min) I prefer larger (entries) tournaments, I love overlay, and it's possible I'll drop $100-125 on a main tournament at Bellagio/Caesar's/Aria over the weekend. I have a decent online background and about a year of weekly smalltown tourny exp. Any tips/thoughts appreciated. tldr; which vegas strip casinos do you like / would you recommend for high volume? I get a lot of soft-ness comes from the time you play etc., but I'm just curious what the Vegas pros know about which attractions pull in faux poker players etc.

Going to play a WSOP circuit event in April, any suggestions? Tips? Advice?
Hello fellow poker players! I am going to be going to my first real life poker tournament in April at Harrahs Cherokee Casino. I will be in one of the smaller NL tournaments and I was curious about a few things: Has anyone ever been to a circuit event? Was it at Cherokee? How is the atmosphere? Should I wear specific clothing? Are the players mostly amateurs or legit pros? Should I push all in on the first hand? /s :) Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I've seen people TRYING to be a "crew." Most people who think they can count cards, can't. Right after that movie 21 came out the casinos were flush with confused college kids whispering to each other, "What's the count again?"
Very few people actually try to cheat here. Spotting card counters is all in the way that they bet. It's a certain formula with very few methods of deviation so if they don't follow it strictly it doesn't work so nobody is worried about the amateurs. If a dealer suspects someone of card counting, they report it to their pit boss who then watches the game. If the person IS thought to be card counting they are simply denied service at the casino.
There's too many security guards, surveillance, and key cards to take it in cash. It's not Ocean's 11 security but they know what they're doing. The only other option would be to steal chips but the large denomination ones are RFID tracked so that would be a bust as well. I'd have a better success rate applying for a loan at the bank.
If you think a dealer has made a mistake you are correct in telling him immediately. The floor should be called if the situation isn't immediately solved. If the money in question is a small amount (say a dollar or two) then the house usually neutralizes the dispute by putting in the missing money. Larger amounts would go through surveillance though.
Locals actually have quite a few perks. Some strip clubs, dance clubs, shows, and etc. have a locals discount or "industry night." The Vegas lifestyle is available to the locals at a cheaper rate but just remember not to do it every day. To get a job as a dealer I filled out an application, passed an audition. Simple as that.
I was hired for my current job in late 2010. I had all standard table games on my resume and I was auditioning for poker. Resume's aren't as important in dealing as the audition. If you've been dealing for 30 years and you mess up during the audition, they're going to go with the guy with only 1 year of experience who aced it.
The largest tip I've received was 600 dollars. I saw a player toss a cranberry (5k) chip to a dealer once. Tips are a big "X" factor for your income and if you're not working at a casino full time it can be difficult to budget.
I'm sorry, I completely missed your second question. Picking up a casino employee is possible and not really frowned upon. Don't expect much from the girls dealing in the "party pits" though.
No, roulette dealers cannot do that. Roulette wheels are checked for bias electronically and any suspicious patterns would attract attention. I've work/ed at newer casinos and older ones. I prefer the character of the older houses but I think the Aria is amazing. I've been dealing for about 10 years now.
I've personally never heard it but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a common term. Gaming slang is a lot of rhyming and alliteration. I'd much appreciate it if the whole world would please stop saying "Winner, winner Chicken Dinner."
By far the best magic show, in my opinion, is Mac King's show at Harrah's. Simple, but amazing illusions in an intimate-sized theatre and very funny. Penn & Teller are great as well. The tickets can be picked up for a discount at ticket booths around the strip the day of the show. The kiosks are called Same-Day Tickets or Half-Price Tickets and are a good value. Stay away from the Criss Angel show. It's terrible.
If you're going to play low-limit table games you're probably going to want to go downtown to Fremont Street. Set aside about 40 dollars apiece and play the minimum that the table allows. If you want to see a show there are kiosks around the strip and in many casinos that offer discounted tickets for shows on the current day. Clubs are expensive to get into (30 dollars is about average) and the drinks are quite expensive as well (10 dollar beers and god help you if you order anything remotely fancy).
Gambling is generally the quickest way, and slots are the worst but I think some of them are pretty cool. I'm someone who likes flashing lights and noise. Many new penny slot machines have been arriving with preset minimum bets like 25 credits but they pay out odd amounts. This usually leads to a player leaving 19 cents or so on the machine and walking away. There's people who just spend all day wandering from casino to casino looking for unclaimed spare change on the machines. It can be lucrative.
The hiking in Red Rock Canyon is great although you'd need a car. First Fridays down in the arts district is always fun. There are countless shows (stand-up comedy, theatre, etc.) off the strip. If you're unsure of what to do in a particular stretch of time and need ideas pick up a Las Vegas Weekly. They're available for free all throughout town.
I don't know but I suspect it's cost-related. Most table games have a 5 dollar minimum bet with a dealer to keep action moving. An undercover cop on the slots could control the pace. I think it's a waste of money either way.
No, the possibility of fraud is far too high to give away money. There really isn't such a thing as "house chips." There are non-denominational chips that are used in roulette as well as specialty chips used for tournament-style play but use of those would blow the cop's cover, obviously. Also, as long as the hookers aren't pestering every player they come across, the casinos don't really mind them so much. They'll need a bed eventually. To learn blackjack strategy (or really any casino game) I'd actually recommend sitting in front of the computer a wee bit longer and visiting wizardofodds.com. It's a great resource for gambling smart.
As a dealer, you develop quite thick skin. People will call you names and curse a lot but very few actually cause much of a scene. If a scene is caused, security is usually called and they usually eject them.
Actually, many of the major casinos offer free classes that teach you how to play, usually in the mornings from 9-11 am. Many casino games can seem confusing or intimidating. My advice would be to take the free lesson and, if it seems fun, don't be afraid to throw a few bucks on the real thing. Just don't spend all your time in the casinos.
Yeah, it is but some still resort to it since many people don't know. Most guests that aren't accustomed to tipping will tip after realizing it's the social norm ("when in Rome") but if coerced into tipping will not be likely to later.
Tips are earned on a table-to-table basis when you deal cash games in poker. Table games (everything else requiring a dealer) generally pool tips and divide them equally on a 24-hour timeframe. All dealers rotate into all games (except for Poker, which is usually a completely separate department) at one point or another. Unless there's a generous high roller most of our money comes from the more numerous, smaller tips from low-limit games.
They usually get a line of credit for the higher stakes players, yes but you'll occasionally get the high roller that throws up a few grand on the table in cash. I've seen more than a few people carrying 10k bundles around. There's a guy who plays poker down on Fremont Street called The Duke of Fremont Street (you don't say?!) who carries around a violin case full of cash, gold, and gold money clips stuffed with cash. Some people just like the attention.
Most poker dealers will get a dollar a hand as a tip. Since poker isn't a house game that tip isn't necessarily a "thanks for the lucky hand" but more of a "thanks for moderating the poker game." If you're playing 25 dollars a hand and you are dealt a blackjack, the blackjack will pay 37.50. A common tip on that would usually be the 2.50 but we appreciate a dollar tip/bet. Anything over 5 dollars (that isn't a high-stakes game) would be considered generous.
I've seen it done to varying degrees of success, it's just not very common anymore, at least in Las Vegas. Most card counting groups operate in smaller Indian Casinos where the dealers are less likely to be trained against it. Opening a brand new casino in an area new to gaming is like ringing the dinner bell for card counters.
The odds of a video poker machine dealing you a royal flush on the deal is a little under 650,000 to 1 (happened to me once). As a poker dealer, I've dealt four in 10 years, although I've run into dealers who've gone their whole careers without dealing one.
I could easily see myself doing this for awhile. It's fun, easy money and casinos are the best places in the world to people watch. If I moved up I'd probably like to teach dealers. I view dealing as somewhat of an art form and I'd like to reteach the "right" way.
I think many of them are just trying to unique. When you line them up right next to each other one mega casino is pretty identical to the next so they have to out-gimmick each other in every way. Also, many casino's carpet is actually coded to indicate areas where minor are and aren't allowed. There's usually a yellow brick road of sorts to registration and elevators.
Most casinos use Kem or Copag cards for poker. Anyone who plays cards at home should pick some of these up. They're pretty difficult to mark, bend resistant, and they're perfect for parties. You can wash them in the sink! Blackjack and other card-based table games generally use custom cards made for the casino. I've never really paid attention to what brand they are since they're changed out so often.
I've always thought the LVH (the old Hilton) has a really nice sports book and their odds have always been fair. The kind of live betting you're looking for is usually the kind of action you'll get from the other patrons in the sports book. The casino doesn't have time to set odds on that short of notice.
Craps is confusing because the objective of the game changes so frequently and the odds are somewhat strange. Unless you want to go in-depth with game strategy I'd suggest putting your money on the pass line and throwing the dice until they tell you to stop. Not the best advice, I know, but I'm not a huge fan of craps.
It's a little pricey to get in (40 dollars last time I was there, if memory serves me correctly) but the Moon nightclub at the Palms Hotel is pretty damn cool. Open air at the top of the building. I'd buy the club tickets in advance since they're usually the same price. Half-price ticket booth the day of the show you want to see.
Proper etiquette is to shore up your hand against the dealer's without harming the other players. Hitting when the dealer is showing a bust card has started more than a few fights that I've seen. Practice basic strategy and try to make sure you're playing with people who do the same.
The two popular swingers' clubs are The Green Door and The Red Rooster. Ladies get in free (of course), single men pay a pretty high cover charge, and couples get in for half price. They're... interesting places to meet people.
Tipping is one way of diverting attention and, yes, it does work. However, as I stated elsewhere, card counters have to adhere to certain rules and formulas regarding their wagers. They've made blackjack a business and tipping is bad for business.
Ask for them. The biggest thing is shyness. There's a lot of people gambling in a casino at any given time so if you want your play to be evaluated for comps, simply tell the dealer or floor manager. I don't eat at the buffets too often.
That's up to you man. I know people who've had bad experiences with them and I've had people who've had great experiences. Not all hookers are diseased and misguided. Some are business-minded and know that they're offering a service and do so professionally.
