    Poker in Aruba

    Any regular Hold'em players out there?

    I'm looking to get some playing in on my honeymoon 10/19 through 10/26. Which casinos have the best poker rooms?

    What are the typical limits 1/2, 2/5 NL? Do any of the Casino spread Pot Limit Omaha - Eights or Better?

    Thank you in advance for your suggestions...

    I'm a hold-em player also. I never played in Aruba most casino do not have it. They mostly have you basics, slots, roulette, caribbean stud, black jack, baccurat, and craps. There is one casino that I do know of that has hold-em and that's the Excelsior casino at the holiday inn. As far as spread pot limit omaha - lol you are pushing it. Pretty basic in the casino there. Good luck!

    Thanks for the response. I figured it would be somewhat limited... I guess I'll have to settle for the nightly hold'em tournaments. LOL. If you're interested in checking out the Excelsior one night, let me know and we can meetup.

    ah that's right you are getting married soon too. I have been in touch with Tim about fishing. Have a great time at your reception. Maybe we'll see eachother in Aruba! I usually fly out of Philly but this year it was cheaper going through Newark.

    There was actually a hold 'em tournament out here very recently. I talked to a couple players and one of them won a free trip + buy in from an online tourney to get here.
