Las Vegas opens new poker room at Aria Casino

Las Vegas opens new poker room at Aria Casino

Monday, 21 December 2009

The long-awaited City Center project – a 31 hectare urban complex of skyscrapers – has been unveiled in the heart of Las Vegas, including the Aria Casino and a brand new poker room that Nevada has been rushing to try.

Within seconds of the doors opening on December 16, players were crowded around 18 tables that spread games like $1/$3 and $2/$5 No Limit Hold’em and $3/$6 Limit Hold’em. The early nights in the poker room also saw $4/$8 Omaha High-Low and other mixed games being played.

Furthermore, they have their answer to Bobby’s Room – Tom Dwan, Patrik Antonius and Guy LaLiberte were all spotted in the VIP area of Aria.

Apparently, talks are underway with Phil Ivey to loan his name to the room in the same way that Bobby Baldwin did. Perhaps in future we’ll hear about the multi-million dollar pots won and lost in Phil’s Room?
