re: Poker & Atlantic City
I've played in AC many times. I saw your second note regarding the websites of some of the casinos
down there so here is my take:
You are right that they don't publish their ring game limits on their sites. But that's mainly because the games and limits can change based on demand. Almost all of the rooms will offer 1/2 NL, and 2/5 NL. Almost all of the rooms offer 2/4 Limit, 3/6 limit, 5/10 limit, 10/20 limit. The Tropicana often has Omaha Hi/Lo and Stud games. The Stud games are usually 15/30. The Taj has a very large room and has the most to offer right now from a ring game perspective. When the Borgata is done it's expansion in the next few months, they are supposed to be adding an additional 85 tables to their room.
I have not been to all of the rooms in AC, but I have been to the Trop, Showboat House of Blues, Taj, and Borgata. There is very easy money to be won at the Showboat House of Blues. The room there is very nice, but their tables and tourneys have been known to fill up fast on holidays/weekends. The House of Blues has daily 40+10 tourneys which tend to pay out around 800+ to the winner. But it's a decent tourney.
In my opinion, one of the better tournaments in terms of value is the Tuesday night 100+20 tourney at the Trop. You get 4000 to start, there are no rebuys, they do allow 1 add on after an hour. But the best part is that $10,000 is guaranteed for 1st place as long as 100 people play. There is usually around 150, so the prizes are decent.
Hope that helps you out.
