Bobby’s Room Takes High Stakes Poker to New Level
Bobby’s Room, which is located in Las Vegas’ Bellagio Hotel and Casino, has long been home to the biggest poker games in the world.
But recently, those games have gotten even bigger as the world’s richest poker players like Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, and Jennifer Harman are stepping their game up.
Most games held in this luxurious poker room feature $4,000/$8,000 blinds which are already big enough.
However, the players have recently been anteing up $8,000/$16,000 for blinds which means each hand is averaging $200,000 – $300,000 a pot. Seeing as how hands don’t take too long to play, that’s a lot of money being exchanged in a single hand.
Some of these card sharks will be heading off to major poker tournaments soon so it’s hard to see the blinds staying this high, but many predict the games will be much bigger in the future.
