The Horseshoe Council Bluffs has an elegant poker room of approximately 25 tables in Council Bluffs, Iowa, near Omaha, Nebraska. Apparently Harrah's moved the poker room from their Harrah's-branded property nearby to here in early 2006, so this is presently the only casino poker room in the Council Bluffs-Omaha metropolitan area.

Wednesday, 26 April 2006, 20:30 - 22:00 CDT, PhilipR: I was only there briefly and didn't observe all the games going. I think there were some low-limit games, and possibly some higher-stakes NLHE; there appeared to be around 6-10 games going. At least two of them were $2-5 NLHE. My short-stack all-in reraise with AK was called by the raiser with QTs, so this game obviously attracts a lot of people there for the gamble even on a weeknight.
