Just a thought

The Ironmen of Poker are in town. As part of this year's adventures, they have implemented a "Third World Poker Tour." As explained by Grange95:


Santa has finally implemented a plan he and I have been mulling for a couple of years—The Third World Poker Tour. Ironmen will be randomly assigned—sentenced—to play a two hour session at some of the finer poker rooms in Vegas: Tropicana, Hooters, Excalibur, Luxor, Stratosphere, Sahara, Circus Circus, Riviera, and Imperial Palace. Santa and I agree that one of the best parts of the Vegas poker experience is playing at some of the less-glamorous rooms. Most of the Ironmen are poker snobs who live at Venetian, Bellagio, Wynn, or Aria, and whine about "slumming it" at Mirage or MGM (don't even suggest Planet Hollywood, TI, or Bally's!). Hopefully hilarity, hijinks, and arrests will ensue.

I saw Tweets originating from the Stratosphere today, so I know that the plan is being implemented. It got me to thinking....

If one usually plays the lowest-stakes no-limit hold'em games at the Venetian, Bellagio, Wynn, and Aria, then goes "slumming" to the IP, Stratosphere, Sahara, Riviera, etc., would that be considered seeing how the other $1/2 lives?

Oh c'mon, the IP is plenty glamorous. In fact several of the dealertainers are totally fabulous.

Should substitute O'Sheas, or Bill's where I have occasionally seen as much as two or three humdred dollars on the table. All at once. Total.
