Riviera -- CLOSED Poker Room Description
The Riviera Poker Room is located near the Strip entrance to the casino. Use the underground Strip parking located at the South end of the property on Las Vegas Blvd and the poker room is at the top of the escalators and to the left.
The room typically spreads 1/3 nl Hold'Em and 3/6 fixed limit Hold'Em with a $2 max rake.

The poker room manager is a regular user of the AVP forums and only too happy to answer any questions on the forums or via PM.
I had never played in the Riviera poker room before. It is a smallish space but very comfortable. The tables and chairs were very good.
