The Rio All-Suite is best known in the poker world as the current home of the World Series of Poker. You can get your poker fix on any time of year in their 10-table poker room, but the best time of year to be at the Rio is when the WSOP is going on -- anyone can stop by and watch the incredible poker action from the rails.

Rio All-Suite Overall Impressions & Review:
As the Rio is pretty far off the Strip, I personally am never tempted to make the trip over there just for it's poker room. But come the World Series of Poker, you'll find me there all the time -- and not just because I'm covering or playing in some events. The huge Amazon room hosts not only the big tournaments, but also some of the biggest, juiciest cash games in town. Every poker pro you've ever heard of or seen on TV is there, and the sight of thousands of people all playing poker at once is a sight to see in itself. They also are constantly running satellites to the World Series Events, which are pretty good, both in how they're run and in the payouts. So if you're in Vegas when the WSOP is going on, make it a point to check it out.
