The $1 chips are so ugly that I begged a dealer to sell me one of the bright and colourful $3 rake chips! :wink: " class="wp-smiley" src="http://s1.wp.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif?m=1129645325g" />

The Orleans Hotel & Casino

The Orleans is West of the Strip and is especially popular with the locals. It is one of the older establishments and everything has a bit of a 70s feel to it. Many poker rooms have this unexplainable love for the colour brown, but if you mix it with beige the whole things seems as if no interior designer had laid hands on this for a loooong time. As the inventory also the players are a little older.

I paid the Orleans a couple of visits, as every Friday the biggest regular tournament in town is hosted here – a simple $125 tournament with quite a good structure. Every week there are around 300 people playing it and so it’s $6000-$7000 for first place. That’s quite alright. :) " class="wp-smiley" src="http://s0.wp.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif?m=1129645325g" />

In total I played 3 tourneys here. Two of those mentioned above and one HORSE tourney. But I made the money in the cash games really (means, I financed the tournaments through it).

The Orleans definitely has the most annoying waitresses in town! It might be that due to bad hearing of most of the elderly players the waitresses use these loud and squeaky voices, but those with perfect hearing go crazy after a short while from all the “Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Cocktails? Coooooooooocktaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiils?????” It could also be that they are all on drugs…who knows…

Here is the result of my hours at The Orleans:

  • Poker Room Quality (0-10): 4 – no WiFi, basically no mobile reception, seedy chips, chairs and tables, no good atmosphere and remoteness from the Strip. On the positive side: the games are good and the food court is right next to the poker room with different fast food on offer.
  • Comps: $1.25/hour
  • Promos: changing all the time… Bad Beat Jackpots, Splash The Pot
  • Player’s Card: B Connected
  • Hours Cash Game:  3:25 (2 winning session)
  • Profit Cash Game: $337
  • Hours Tournament: 12:35
  • Profit Tournament: -$350
  • Total Profit: -$13

Back to the Strip and a short and actually quite pointless presentation of the Tropicana poker room (it has been closed shortly after I left)…
