Yeah, it's big, but it's not cavernous big, like day 1 of the WSOP looks on TV. I didn't see anyone famous, either.
I did, however, survive for three hours, only dropping $14.50 for the night. My big hands were few and far between, and the Commerce has an insanely huge rake at the lower limits ($3 for any pot above $5). Second to the casino itself, I'd like to think I was the big winner at the table. Very few people left the table with any chips; those who did played less than 10 hands, and left with less than they started.
No big hands to report; no bad beats. On the big blind, I played KK to the end on one hand, bringing three calling stations along for the ride, no raises. And my best hand of the night, I was one-on-one, out of position with 99, facing a board of 9-Q-3 3 7 rainbow. The guy to my left raised once, after the river, and called my re-raise. He showed Q3, giving him a 3-over-Q boat, losing to my 9-over-3 boat.
My online play at the 2 cent/4 cent tables has helped a lot -- I played OK against people who see the flop under the gun with 57o, expecting (correctly) that someone would have a 7 when the board showed 4589A.
(Edit: Oh, by the way, I'm in O.C. for FileNet training. I think I finally understand the concept of a "record class" now.)
