    Poker room in casinos?

    We were sitting here talking about Aruba Casinos as we recently got back from Vegas. I realized that I don’t think I’ve ever seen a poker room in Aruba. Do any of the casinos have one?

    I think that the old now closed casino at Holiday Inn had a poker room.
    Is poker the card game where the casino does not make a lot of $$ ?

    Yes, I guess that’s true; poker rooms probably don’t generate a lot of revenue. When we were in Vegas the poker room was closed all week for “filming”!? WSOP (World Series of Poker) had a tournament going on at another resort so I don’t know what the deal was. Tom was disappointed which got us talking about Aruba. For some reason, I thought Hilton had one. I could have sworn that WSOP did a tournament in Aruba few years ago.

    They have had poker rooms in the Excelsior and Grand Holiday (Holiday Inn), the Radisson, the Casablanca (Wyndham), the Aura (Occidental Grand) and the Stellaris have all have poker rooms or poker sections. I don't know what casinos currently have poker, but I can't believe none of them do. I thought the Hilton had poker, but I'm not sure.

    The World Poker Tour and some other tournament series have had large tournaments in Aruba. I do not believe the World Series of Poker has ever had a tournament there.

    Guess it was probably the World Poker Tour I remember seeing advertised. I prefer the slots but if there’s a porker room for Tom, everyone could be happy. Hopefully, someone will post whether or not the Hilton has one. Thanks.

    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    Thanks Chuck! I’m looking for incentives to get Tom to think about a trip for May!

    Looks like WSOP was scheduled for November 2020 but cancelled because of COVID. https://www.cardplayer.com/poker-new...ally-postponed
