Best and Worst Features of Red Rock Resort Poker Room
Red Rock is a comfortable, modern poker room. It has automatic shufflers. The remodeled sportsbook with a deli is just steps away from the poker room. Bathrooms are located inside the poker room. This is a rare amenity.
Some nights feature tables full of local regulars. This may make the games tight and/or unwelcoming to new players.
Red Rock Resort Cash Games
Red Rock Resort spreads a large number of games, especially for a locals poker room. Players will find 2/4 and 4/8 limit hold’em nearly 24 hours a day.
The same can be said of 1/2 no-limit hold’em, which has a $100 to $300 buy-in range. Peak hours will generate a 2/5 no-limit hold’em game with a $300 to $1,000 buy-in. A 3/5/10 no-limit hold’em game runs on Friday nights. It has a $500 to $3,000 buy-in.
Fixed-limit Omaha Hi/Lo runs off and on at the 4/8 limit. The level of action generally seems to depend on the Omaha promotions at Red Rock Resort and the level of the bad beat jackpot at The Orleans.
A 1/2 pot limit Omaha game or a mixed game may be found from time to time. All these fixed-limit hold’em and Omaha games dealt at Red Rock Resort have a half-kill.
Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo is now spread at Red Rock Resort. The game moved there when Suncoast closed its poker room in 2018. The most popular limit for this game is 4/8.
There is a 2-10 spread limit Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo game on Friday afternoons that is called the “Hoggie.” This game has a kill pot when a player scoops a $100 pot. This player must put up a $10 bet on the next hand.
The high card brings in the first bet of $2 in this game. That starts at the king of spades and works its way down by suit and rank until a player has it. This is like Razz in that respect. A high hand must have a pair of aces or better. The low must be at least eight or better.
