I've been to Atlantic City before, and at the time the Borgata was the nicest poker room, but not necessarily the best place to play -- the wait was really long. Now that they've expanded and are the biggest room in town, is it pretty much a no-brainer to play there?

I have two main concerns with choosing a place to play -- the wait I should expect, and the caliber of play. Is the place big enough now that the waits are reasonable? But more importantly, are the players there any better or worse than the other big rooms like the Tropicana or the Taj? I play limit Holdem, from 3/6 up to about 6/12. Is there one place I should aim for that specializes in bad players? Obviously I don't want to play with a table full of tight grinders.

FYI -- I'll be there on a Saturday and Sunday.

I went on a recent weekend trip to AC and went everywhere BUT the borgata; so I can't really speak as to how it compares to everywhere else.

I just wanted to chime in that I specifically liked the play and variety of games at the Taj Mahal. If I could choose one place to go back to, that would be it. 2nd I would take Caesar's palace. Loose as heck games and an easy to beat AAAJJ jackpot that when I was there was almost 100k. A close 3rd is the Showboat.

Avoid Bally's. Evil.
