What do you think?
By the time I was done at Harrah's, my penultimate room, I was quite tired. I actually gave some thought to saving the Borgata for another trip. But my assiduousness got the better of me and I decided to soldier on and make the Borgata my final stop.
I'm glad I did. As a casino, the Borgata is a high-roller heaven. It is richly appointed, with the highest limits for all of the standard table games such as baccarat, roulette, craps and blackjack.
It caters to the highest rollers — the whales. The poker room fits into that plan. It is beautifully appointed. The rug looks new. The ceilings are very high, with the best illumination I have seen. The noise level is dampened. Though the room has the most patrons of any of the poker rooms in Atlantic City, with 85 tables, it has the muted noise level of a small one- or two-table room. I liked best the seats. They are large, leather-covered, well padded, well maintained, and have wheels and a swivel — making easy the frequent repositioning I like to do at the table.
The tables, cards, and chips are similarly top-notch. Everything about the place demonstrates a commitment to quality and class. The games and tournaments are of a similar vein. While I was there, from about 8: I sat down there for about an hour or so. The rake is reasonable at the Borgata. There are no bad beat jackpots. There didn't seem to be any comps or promotions going when I was there. Curiously, neither the floor nor management would speak to me about the room — though I asked and was willing to wait until they were free.
They said they had a strict policy of not talking to any press without explicit instructions from their media department which doesn't work on the weekends. In the weeks that preceded my visit there had been many negative stories in the papers about the Borgata, some involving, specifically, the poker room.
So I guess they were a bit gun-shy. They didn't need to be of course. Mid- and low-limit stud players don't make this room their primary destination, I gathered; they still tend to hang out at the Taj.
But a few players talked about the high-stakes stud action that this room frequently has. The guys I was playing with were surprised the games weren't going when we were there. My game was enriching. Though the game was listed as a mixture of stud-8 and Omaha-8, we agreed to keep it at stud-8 while I was there maybe they had heard of me and mistakenly thought I was an Omaha-8 pro. Fortunately for me, though, these guys didn't seem to know how to play stud On five occasions in the first few minutes I saw players calling with up cards higher than an eight — generally a no-no in this game.
Here's an example of this play. It was during the best hand I played during my visit. I was dealt the perfect first three cards — three suited babes with an ace. Everyone — including one player with a jack and another with a nine, called me. No hearts were out. Yes, lord, there is a heaven.
This was and may still be the best place to play on the East Coast. However, on my trip there this week, I found the Once in your lifetime you must get yourself here. This is a swanky fine hotel property. The poker room is huge and Good games nice friendly dealers not the usual miserables I like most of the floor too especially Julio, Rob, I have been a Borgata regular for 12 years. At one time it was the biggest and best room on the East Coast with good The action is very good.
The floor is competent. The dealers are mostly great. The tournament series' that they I've played Borgata three times now, and it is still the premiere room in AC, but I feel like sometimes it gets by on The Borgata is the class of AC and holds up in any market.
I'm just gonna say it. Played poker all over the country and no one has a staff as sexy as the Borgata Babes. What's not to love about the Borgata? I do like to play at some of the other AC rooms when I'm there but when it Glad I found Poker Atlas.
Since I got on here, I figured I'd do a review on my favorite room
