Cash Games: The WSOP Isn’t the Only Game in Town

With the eyes of the world firmly fixed on each WSOP tournament as it unfolds, many of the best players in the world hop into new tournaments as soon as they bust, in what is undoubtedly the most hectic six week period on the poker calendar. This can be draining at times, but then a great player’s thirst for action is more difficult to quench that most would think.

Somehow, in between this endless stream of tournaments, they find time to play cash games. These cash games are among the biggest and most lucrative that can be found in Las Vegas, and many of the top pros head to the WSOP primarily for this reason.

Phil Galfond tells of action at Aria

GalfondThe Aria has developed a good reputation for big cash games which is difficult to match in this part of the world, and many pros have been spending time there this month. One such pro is Phil Galfond, and going by his recent remarks, the action is not just restricted to Holdem. Galfond has spoken of 8 Game Mix cash tables where all games are big bet rather than having some limit games, and the buy in is $100,000. Blinds are between $300/$600 with a $600 ante, and $500/$1,000 with a $1,000 ante. Having managed to find some takers for tournament side bets, he did eventually get round to playing the 2-7 Triple Draw Championship, but for the most part, cash games are continuing to keep Galfond away from the WSOP tournament area.

Bellagio: Doyle Brunson tweets chip porn

The Aria is clearly not the only place in town hosting big cash games this week, as Doyle Brunson has been verifying with tweets from the Bellagio. He posted pictures which showed twenty five stacks of $1,000 chips, along with four stacks of $5,000 chips and loose change which appeared to total over $450,000. He captioned the picture, “This is what the tournament players are missing.” It is unknown whether he was involved in the game himself, but the action certainly seems to be flowing at the cash tables of Bellagio.
