    Need help settling a debate about LV Poker Rooms

    What Year did NL Texas Holdem take over as the dominate game in LV? Did LV NL TH (lower Stakes) ever play uncapped? If Yes then when did they change to capped?

    Only room I know of running uncapped is Golden Nugget 1/2.

    I’d say 2005. Two years after Moneymaker. Before 2000, there were only two rooms in the entire West that spread NLH: Lucky Chances in Colma and the Player’s Club in Ventura, which was only on Wednesdays and Saturdays and shut down at 2am.

    Probably 2004, actually. It all happened very quickly after the Moneymaker/WPT boom of 2003.

    Limit holdem, then the dominant game, stayed strong for several more years before fading in most places. I believe there's only a live limit holdem scene at middle-upper stakes in LA, San Jose, Atlantic City, Minnesota, and Las Vegas at this point.

    You might be right. Before 2003 there were quite a few NLH tournaments and a moderate demand for cash games, but California card rooms resisted spreading them, because the best players got the money too quickly, causing the games to break. 90% of the players back then were terrible! Hence capped buyins and the predominance of 1-3 games.
