Posted on 31 July 2013 by "T".

Revel Casino-Hotel in Atlantic City will be closing its poker room next month. Apparently the poker room hasn't made enough money compared to the rest of the casino games (black jack, slots machines etc), so it simply wasn't worth it for Revel Casino Hotel to keep the games going anymore. Below is a statement on the decision to close the poker room:

After careful consideration and in an effort to further improve the overall operating performance of Revel Casino Hotel, management has made the decision to close our poker room operations effective August, 2013.

Offering poker as an amenity on the property will be considered in the future as a component of an overall strategy related to our online opportunities. We have a very talented team of professionals who work in poker operations and we are actively working to place as many as we can in other areas.

Posted on 29 November 2012 by "T".

On Wednesday, Barry "the Robin Hood of poker" Greenstein posted a blog on traveling to find the best games in poker. Barry wrote that he hasn't been traveling much as of late and as a result of that he has missed out on many good games.

"One of the things that I haven't done recently as much as I should have is travel to play in good games. When I was younger and single, if there was a good poker situation I found out where it was and went there, because I was free to travel. I just hopped on a plane, had some contacts, and got in the game.

Lost with 4 of a kind - won big!

Tags: Atlantic City, Caesars Casino, Steven Gedney
Posted on 19 January 2010 by "T".

Steven Gedney, 52, from Dover, Delaware went to Atlantic City to play poker at Caesars Casino not long ago. Like all other players who went to play poker at the casino that day, Steven hoped to win some money and to have a good time. However, he couldn't never imagine that he was about to win a lot of money - with the "losing" hand.

Steven Gedney had 4 of a kind 3's and hoped for his opponent, Dobrzanski, to have one of the aces on the table. Steven and Dobrzanski both went all-in. Steven showed his hand, and to his surprise, Dobrzanski had 4 of a kind aces. Steven Gedney realized after a few seconds of thinking that he was the big winner (and not his opponent..) and that he was about to get a large piece of a huge bad beat jackpot. Steven Gedney received not less than $276,979 from the jackpot. Dobrzanski who had the winning hand got $138,489. The rest of the players at the table also had a reason to be glad for Steven and Dobrzanski as they also got $20,000 each from the jackpot.
