The Best Poker Room in the Caribbean, It is also the only island to spread a Pot Limit Omaha game, 6 tables of NL Hold Em. Full tables unlike St. Martin. Longer hours than anywhere else in the islands. If you are looking for an island to play poker, I heavily recommend the Holiday Inn Aruba.
Be mindful of collusion. In 2007, the Radisson left a bad taste in my mouth. There’s No Sleeping in Poker. Poker Tables at the Holiday Inn are jammed into a relatively small room. Tables at the Holiday Inn are jammed into a relatively small room. Poor room design, jammed tables, and the Aruban “whatever” business attitude toward all this make for a disruptive game.
First is the Bad Beat Jackpot, Eccentricities of Aruban Poker, Star Wars Cantina, Rake, you can straddle for ANY amount , limpers, don’t be subtle. The Bad Beat Loser gets 50%, the winner gets 25% and the remaining 25% is split up amongst ALL the PLAYERS in the entire room. Combine all those personalities and I expected a Wookie to sit down next to me in the 8 seat at any minute.
A multi-part review of poker in Aruba for any other travelers wishing to soak in some great sun, white sand, blue water and poker. The majority of the tables (as in all of the Caribbean) is $2/5 No Limit Hold’em. At least 3 2/5 NL games which condense to 1 table. They also spread a 5/5 Omaha Pot Limit High game.
