Poker history buffs opt for the historical Binions in downtown Las Vegas, AKA the original home of the World Series of Poker. Binions hosted the World Series of Poker from 1970 until 2004, when it moved to the Rio All-Suite. It might not be the fanciest, or cleanest, poker room in Vegas, but you’ll find lots of characters at the tables, bleary-eyed from their dedicated vigils at the rounds.
Even beyond the series, Binions beefs up on its selling points by stocking their floor with 46 tables in a red-papered room. You can find many tables spreading Texas Hold'em with Limit tables going from $2/4 to $10/20, no-limit tables with $1/2 to $2/5 blinds, and usually a few tables with $4/8 Omaha hi/lo. For the casino’s 8:00 pm tournaments, it'll cost you a $70 buy-in Sundays through Thursdays and $150 buy-in on Fridays and Saturdays.
