Poker on The Strip
Mirage: Mirage is one of the best casinos on The Strip and has a big and well run casino room. The only draw back to the Mirage poker room is that most players here are excellent poker players and it is hard to find fish at these tables. (Real fish can on the other hand be seen a plenty in the lobby where they keep an amazingly large aquarium.) The Mirage is the ideal choice if you want to play both poker and other casino games.
Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino : The host of WSOP offers world class poker the whole year round, not just during the World Series. They also have excellent hotel rooms, food and other types of casino games.
The Venetian: The Venetian is one of the most expensive hotels and casinos on The Strip. It has good restaurants, high end shopping and excellent gaming but also the biggest poker room in Las Vegas. The Venetian is visited by a lot of rich gamblers and it can be rather easy to find well funded fish while playing at The Venetian.
