The World Series of Poker begins May 27, which means it’s time for poker players to book flights and decide where they're going to live during the two-month poker grind in Las Vegas. Selecting a comfortable spot to lay your head after a grueling day of grinding is very important during the series. Whether you are looking for comfort, a summer pad with friends, or a high-class experience, many options exist on and off the Strip to accommodate your needs throughout the summer. We've put together a catalog of places to consider for the series, and you can even book your room right here at PokerNews.com!
