MGM Grand is my favorite recommendation for first timers. The action is consistently soft, and they cater to 1/2 games.

Other rooms are bigger and perhaps fancier, but they also tend to attract a more aggressive, more skilled player. if you are worried about losing your shirt, I would stay away from the likes of Aria, Venetian, Bellagio and wynn. I would also avoid the smaller and local rooms as they tend to have a lot off regular and professional players. One exception to this is Mandalay Bay.its a small room but for some reason they attract a lot of drunk tourists.

  • If that the case then why don't all the pros just go to MGM and make a fortune?
