Retired Poker Players

Some of you know I am an Executive Chef at an upscale retirement community. We are planning an activity for next month and it happens to be casino night. Well we only have and hour and a half to serve heavy hors d ouvers and gamble. Its hard to set up a casino and figure the structure for the different tables for such a short time. It's all play money anyway but should be fun for our members. Let me know what you think:

approximately 80 to 100 people
each to have $500 in chips
4 tables of 5 card draw
4 tables of Blackjack
we have one roulette table
one craps table if I can find someone to run it
I would have a Texas Hold-em NL table if these older people new what it was and how to play it
I plan to set up a $25 a card BINGO section ( we all know they know how to play that) so I can get more people involved.

I thought I would have 2 of the poker and 2 of the blackjack tables set up for High Limit Tables so I can get some action started. Remember they don't have much time and the person that ends up with the most chips doesn't get much.

Does anyone have any opinions or suggestions that might help me out?

that's all I have on poker. Now I can show a couple of more pictures from my vacation.

thats all folks

7 Stud? Sounds like they will hit the average age of most stud games I see.

One card hold'em. Makes it more gambly and more about luck than any skill.

Five card draw will be slow to play. A lot a dealing and players making decisions about holding.

3 card poker might be a good game. They only have to beat the house and not each other. Old people on tilt against each other is a bad thing.

Imagine an 85 year old G-Rob dropping bad beats on you.

You could do Let It Ride or three card poker. Baccarat is also an option as long as you had someone who knows the rules dealing.
