The birthplace of the World Series of Poker, Binion's will forever be an important place for poker. Today, they maintain a 10-table poker room that is one of two noteworthy poker rooms in downtown Vegas (Golden Nugget is the other). There is no cap on the buy-in to their cash games. Binion's is home to the Poker Hall of Fame.

Game Availability
A $1/$2 no-limit game is running here at most times. This game is unique in that there is no cap on the buy-in. The action can tend to get a little crazy when a couple players decide to buy-in for several hundred or more. $2/$4 limit hold'em is also popular here.

They run a $60 buy-in tournament every day at 10:00 am and 8:00 pm. There is a $100 tournament each day at 2:00 pm. About 40 players join these events and the fields are generally unbelievably soft.

This poker room cannot be given any awards for comfort. It's about as uncomfortable as they come really. One would has to derive some value from the nostalgia of playing in the building where Doyle Brunson won his two bracelets in the '70s to overlook the fact that it's an otherwise dreadful place to play poker.

The staff here can be a little rough around the edges at times, but they're good at their jobs.

Players get $2 an hour added to their Binion's Players Card which can be redeemed for food. Unfortunately, there aren't really any particularly fantastic restaurants on the property.
