The Paris Poker Room
The Paris Las Vegas Poker Cardroom
Poker played at a casino such as The Paris on the Las Vegas strip differs from the poker you play at home with your buddy’s only in that the dealer stays the same and the deck doesn’t rotate around the table. Instead, you get a button that denotes you’re the ‘dealer’. Face it; this is handy if you’re not very good at shuffling a deck of playing cards. Let the professionals do it for you. It makes the game more enjoyable.
The poker room at The Paris opened April 2007. It’s an extension of the sports book located next door and there are no cell phones allowed in the poker room. The room is long and narrow, elevated a few steps higher than the sports book floor and it leads to a small bar that is elevated above the poker room floor.
All three are in a secluded part of the casino, which makes it nice and quiet. The room contains eight tables that are brand new with comfortable seating. If players would like to take lessons, they offer them Monday through Friday at all times. All you have to do is ask the poker room manager and they will set you up.
The Paris Poker Games
The card room at this casino spreads Texas Hold’Em, Pineapple and Seven Card Stud. The spreads on the limit Texas Hold’Em begins at $3/$6, $4/$8, $6/$12, and $10/$20. No limit starts at $1/$2 with a $100/$300 buy-in and a $2/$5 blind with a $200/$500 buy-in. The latter is usually found in play at some of the tables on the weekends.
Paris Poker Tournaments
Tournaments at the Paris Casino and Resort are held at 9:30am, 1:30pm, and 7:30pm and feature the usual Texas Hold’Em games. The 24 Hour Rolling Poker Tournaments are the most popular of all and the buy-in for the games is $65 for 2,000 in chips for the no limit spread. The games move quickly in 20 minute formats and the run every two hours on the half hour on a daily basis. They start at 1:30am and go through out the entire day, seven days a week. The way this tournament format is set up, a player at the Paris card room could literally sit there all day and do nothing but play poker.
The Paris has a High Hand Jackpot that includes all four of a kinds and straight flushes. They recently also started a Mega-Bad Beat Texas Hold’Em Jackpot that starts at $50,000 and just keeps getting higher until someone wins it. In order to qualify to win this jackpot, you have to have a hand with four tens which goes down every day until four twos are reached.
30% goes to the losing hand, 20% goes to the winning hand, and the other 50% is divided among all the other seated players across six casinos: The Paris, Harrah’s, the Flamingo, O’Shea’s, Bally’s, and the Harrah’s in Laughlin. Other Harrah’s properties may get in on this Mega Bad Beat action in the future.
