He doesn't play 3-cushion either these days but it should be noted that he holds 5 world

Anyway, not a bad score overall.

I have played there in the middle of the night a few times, once shortly after it opened, it is so
beautiful. I'm afraid it's even a little fancier than the Roadhouse. I cannot think of a more
attractive casino in Vegas in my mind.

And as for the Roadhouse- it's legendary status goes a long way to compensate for it's more dated
