Texas Holdem on the Casino Princesa in Miami
The blinds were $2/$5, and the table was very loose. I don't remember a single hand in 4 hours not going to a showdown. I did not play well. I made the mistake of playing looser than usual simply because everyone else was playing loose too. Bad mistake, and it cost me $200 of my $500 buy-in, and would have cost me more if I hadn't flopped a boat toward the end of the evening. (I also played badly because the beer and the rocking of the boat gave me a wicked buzz.)
But it was a good time, and I recommend the Casino Princesa to anyone wanting to go out on a casino cruise. The food was pretty good, the dealers were all very nice, and the casino was hopping. The Texas holdem table was pretty full almost the entire night, although I don't know if that's the usual situation or just because there were a lot of casino affiliates onboard and they tend to like playing poker, if you know what I mean.
Also, here's some info on the Casino Princesa:
- 245 total slot machines
- 1 3 card poker table
- 10,000 square feet
- 32 different table games
The above information comes from the Casino City profile of the Princesa.
