Folks,
I had asked before but don't yet have a list of casinos (safe and cheap, whatever that means!) where I could try my luck at Poker. Prefer something that is in the $100 buy-in range (tournament style Texas Hold'em). Budget is $500 and have 4 nights, so the longer I can play, the better, but $500 is a hard stop. So, want to pick a casino that would fit these needs, and hopefully there is one! Thanks very much!!

vauser, here's a pretty nice list to start with. I'd check the individual casino sites to be sure that nothing has changed though.

I see --- SNG, I assume sit and go. Does that translate to 24/hrs?

Probably, but at certain hours, there's a whole lot of sit and not very much go!

When I was at Wynn the other night I noticed they have a $100.00 buy-in. I'm still looking for a real poker game. Hold-em is OK if you like it, but Hold-em is not poker. Poker is a game of skill, Hold-em is a game of chance...IMHO.

Hold 'em is a game of chance only if you are a complete pre-flop player and strictly playing odds on hole cards. It's a game of high-skill if you play post-flop and is widely regarded as the "Cadillac" of poker games.

Uh, huh. Tell it to the idiots who bet and raise on everything. They start with nothing and end up drawing out on you when they should have folded.

If you are still in at the flop do you feel you have to stay in for the money odds?

The few times I've played in a card room nobody ever folded and I went through my buy-in pretty fast even when I had good cards. It's fun to play at home but I see it as brutal in a no limit game. Maybe I'll get a book on it, but I'd still rather play six card stud or razz (razzle dazzle).
