Rumors are suggesting that one of the biggest cash games in the history of poker is taking place at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker. Some reports tell of a $5,000/$10,000 game.
Rumors about a monster cash game at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas have broken out shortly after the end of the $1 million BIG ONE For ONE DROP event.
Reports about a $2,000/$4,000 NLHE game have been circulating around the city and on forums
for the past week, but it now appears that the game has grown even bigger after the end of the record ONE DROP event.
The game is believed to take place at Ivey's Room at the Aria Casino, and to include some of the biggest high rollers in town.
The reports were further fueled after poker pro
Dan "Blitz" Bilzerian posted a photo of a chip tray, which contained a whopping $9.4 million in $100,000 chips.
The photo was posted on Bilzerian's Twitter profile
, and was accompanied by a message saying "Our poker game
is officially fucking huge…"
Apart from Bilzerian, players like Bobby Baldwin and Guy Laliberté are supposed to be involved in the game.
Both Baldwin and Laliberté made the final table of the ONE DROP event, but have seemingly had a taste for more action. It remains unknown whether or not any pro players are involved, but there are reports of a number of Asian businessmen being seated too.
One poster on TwoPlusTwo
reported that the game is now running with blinds of $5,000/$10,000. This has not been confirmed by any reliable source, as the high stakes games
in Las Vegas are per tradition notoriously closed to the public.
However, if this is indeed true, the game would be one of the largest ever to take place in a live setting, including the much-reported mega games in Macau.
