The Planet Hollywood regular poker room has only 14 tables and sits on the main floor of the casino, but the notable thing about Planet Hollywood and poker is that they have many special series tourneys throughout the year, at least 6 of them, some just for 4 days or so, and others, like during WSOP time, much longer. The buyins at these series called the Phamous Poker Series are mostly in the $200-$300 range and offer great structures, but not so great in paying off the winners, as the house takes a healthy cut from each buyin.
Their regular daily tourneys are interesting in that they always guarantee a prize pool of $1500… $1,000 for 1st and $500 for 2nd. There are 4 of these per day at 10am, 1pm, 4pm, and 7pm. So, if you’re the type of player that always trys to win 1st place rather than just make the money, you might like these. Again, they are not a great deal for the players as far as the house taking too much for themselves, but occasionally they get fewer then 28 players, which gives those particular tourneys an overlay. For $70, you might want to give these smallish tourneys a try!
