Massive cash game running at Aria: "There were pots of $3M regularly"
The big cash games in Las Vegas are really starting to heat up. According to several reports, a $2,000/$4,000 cash game with an $8,000 straddle is running at the Aria Casino.
Apparently some of the players from the $1 million buy-in One Drop tournament are using their free time by playing for millions of dollars in a massive cash game:
"I could see what was definitely Guy Laliberte and Bobby Baldwin, there was a really young guy, really similar looking to Andy Moseley but I cant say for definite as he was sitting at an angle away from where I was outside and don't wanna give any dodgy info, also people were saying "Cadillac1944" was in the game.
There were pots of $3M regularly, and there was talk of 25K tips for the dealers. One of the old guys in the game, around 50 I would say, had the largest stack on the table, I would say around 5-7 million. Andrew Robl was also around but I didn't see him in the game at any point.", “TheCooler101” tells over at 2+2 poker forums.
Also, John Juanda talked about a "big cash game" on his Twitter last Thursday: "Gonna take few days off from WSOP to play in cash game big enough to bust me."
