I played a 4 hour session today at the MGM National Harbor poker room and got the news straight from the horse's mouth. In this case, the metaphorical horse was a dealer. It would be irrational for him to make up a story like this. You might say, "Ace, are you sure you heard it right?" I'm here to tell you that I was in seat 1 and heard all that was said.
You might ask, "And where will this new poker room be?" The answer: the room will be one floor above the current MGM National Harbor poker room. The current poker room is going away. How could a very busy, 39 table, poker room that is considered the cream of the crop in the DC metro area be going away?
The main reason is to add more tables. The new MGM poker room will have around 60 tables, making it the biggest poker room in the area.
This is great news. And on top of all that, it will be away from the annoying and loud slot machines that are right next to the current room.
