First of all, which casino in Atlantic city might be the best to stay/play at. We're only going to stay for one night so I'd rather us stay wherever we plan on playing at. We're really only interested in playing hold'em. So I'm wondering which place has the best poker room, rakes, etc.
Also general tips on how to pick good tables to play at, how much to tip the dealer, etc.
We' pretty stoked. We both have played a lot at local games and done online gaming, but this is the first time either of us has played at a casino. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Taj is the weakest room in Atlantic City, it is the most know so most of the bad players play there. The room are not to expensive either, all you do is sign up for the game you want at the registration deck.
as for tipping dealer it depends where you are playing and how much the pot was. A general rule is $1 for normal size pot, If the pot gets to like over $300 then I might tip a little bit more.
If you are playing like 1/2 NL then there will be alot of people that really are like you and its one of their 1st times playing so dont worry if you act out of turn or something. Only a complete jerk would make a big deal about it.
