Poker at the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas
Poker at the Monte Carlo was nice. The poker room was intimate and classy without feeling crowded. The staff running the place were very nice, and the cocktail waitresses were appropriately busty. (I like busty cocktail waitresses when I play poker. I probably shouldn't worry about that, but I do.)
The game there was also surprisingly soft. I played limit hold em there, and I don't remember the stakes, although I think it was $2/$4. But I remember that I did very well, and that I left after maybe 3 or 4 hours winning about $100. The Monte Carlo poker room was about as nice a poker room as I played in while I was in Vegas. I thought it was as nice as the Bellagio poker room, even if it did lack the famous players and the big high roller room.
And it was a lot less crowded than the Bellagio room. I'm a big guy, over 400 pounds in fact, and I hate crowded poker rooms.
