While Venetian Macau always offered one of the few steady poker rooms on the island, the previous 10 table venue left a few things to be desired by many players. And while the Poker King Club when it was located elsewhere had a reputation for big and crazy play, not everyone could get a seat or afford to play. That all changed in the summer of 2015 when Winfred Yu relocated the Poker King Club to Venetian with various limits from HKD 25/50 to 1000/2000 and beyond.
Players will find 8 cash tables here with two of them usually reserved for VIP play, as in very high stakes.
The big difference now is that Poker Kings Club caters to all levels of players. There are 25 tournament tables with 25/50, 50/100, 100/200, 200/400 spread every day. Several international tournaments still have around $5,000 or €5,000 buy-ins, so the range is attractive to everyone.
Review of the former poker room at Venetian: Pre-June 2015 If you're in Macau for poker, you're in one of only a few casinos that has a poker room. So you're lucky and you're also not lucky. The Venetian Poker Room in Macau has about 10 tables.
Some things we picked up from IntenseGambling.com, however are not so positive: While they do have the best room for low stakes poker in Macau, the 10 tables they have aren't always open (even if there is a waiting list! - that's not good news) and they have the highest rake in Macau at 5%. None the less the games are here. The poker room is in the South lobby of the hotel.
