Cash games are one of the critical revenue generators for the Rio during the World Series. With literally thousands of poker players ready to mix it up in Las Vegas, the challenge the Rio has is to keep players under their roof rather than losing them to the Bellagio, Wynn, Mirage, or any number of poker rooms in town. With the series of poker tournaments being held by everyone from the Bellagio to Binion's, there are more outlets to take that poker dollar than ever before.
Last year, the Rio was full of great cash game stories. Some players made the biggest cash in their lives only to redistribute the money to top cash game sharks. Champions like Greg Raymer mixed it up in Chinese Poker with Can Kim Hua among others. We'll bring you the best that the cash games have to offer.
Harrah's has invested significantly to expand the Satellite offerings this year. Players will have their choice of standard SNG's, lower buy-in two-table satellites, supers, and more. Satellites at the Rio have a reputation of being some of the softest anywhere.
We'll give you the scoop on this and keep you in the loop on all the satellite action.
