Faded Spade Aria Poker Meetup Game!
It was a fun and entertaining night last week during the Faded Spade Aria Poker Meetup Game!
Sean McCormack (Director of Poker at the Aria) and Tom Wheaton (Founder & CEO of Faded Spade) teamed up to give low limit Las Vegas poker players a once-in-a-lifetime experience: playing with Faded Spade cards at the famed Table One (formerly Ivey Room).
Almost 25 people put their name on the list for a unique $1/$2 NLHE game with $3 button ante. And nine lucky people got their chance to play on the same table where 1/2 usually means $100/$200 or $1K/$2K! It was a great way for the Aria and Faded Spade to show their appreciation to low limit players who are truly the foundation of the poker game.
Sean and Tom gave away a ton of Faded Spade and Aria merchandise throughout the night. And Faded Spade parter organization, Run It Up, showed up to start the game off right with an exciting Bomb Pot! Team RIU was kind enough to giveaway merch bags to players as well.
All-in-all, it was a fun night full of laughter and camaraderie — among a table full of strangers and acquaintances — each brought together by pure poker passion!
