What is King's Lounge?
The King's Lounge has a rich history going back to when the WSOP was at the Rio. It is sponsored and operated by King's Resort Rozvadov in the Czech Republic, which has been home to the WSOP Europe festival since 2015.
A glance inside the new King's Lounge at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas, which is lined with enlarged photos of King's Casino regulars like Fedor Holz and Aliaksandr Shylko and WSOP legends like Phil Hellmuth, Ivey and the late Doyle Brunson, will reveal a state-of-the-art poker room equipped with TVs, drink service and fancy break areas.
The tables inside the King's Lounge are matched with tan desk chairs that are perfect for receiving a massage. Additionally, the tournament area is lined with digital versions of the luxurious pillars designed by Sans Souci that decorate the King's Resort Rozvadov back in the Czech Republic.
What Cash Games Can You Play in King's Lounge?
The King's Lounge is not the place to go for a $1/$2 game. That's because the stakes inside the high-stakes cash game area start at $5/$10 and climb as high as $50/$100 and $75/$150.
Starting with the no-limit games, players can hop into $5/$10 or $10/$25 games or make their way up to the $25/$50 tables.
But high-stakes No-Limit Hold'em games are only part of the appeal of the King's Lounge. For every Hold'em table you see, there will be mixed games tables running, including Pot-Limit Omaha, Big O, Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, and Stud Mix.
The PLO games start off at $5/$5/$5 with double board PLO tables and go up to $10/$25/$50 and $25/$50/$100, while Big O typically runs at $5/$10/$25. Meanwhile, the Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better features betting limits between $50/$100 and $75/$150.
There are also a number of Stud variants offered, with Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better running at $50/$100 and Stud Mix running at $50/$100 and $75/$150.
Additionally, there are other games and stakes available on demand, including $5/$5/$5 double board bomb pot PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better and $100/$200 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.
