Ok well, I've never gambled in either, but my grandparent's worked at Foxwood's until they retired and it was a very nice casino from what I saw of it.

And secondly, you should not be playing 1/2 NL cash on $150 bankroll. You shouldn't be playing .25/.50 on a $150 bankroll. I would suggest playing a tournament.

What RD said. In which case, I vote for the tourney. Likely will get to see more hands that way...

I think a turbo 150 would be best

The overall experience (bars, restaurants, ambiance, hotel), is much better at Mohegan. More poker choice at FW, but for 1/2 NL they're pretty much equal.

OTOH, with $150 to buy in, you'll be shallow stacked compared to others at the table. Both have a $300 buy-in. Mohegan lets you top off above that to the size of the biggest stack at the table. Not sure if FW does that.

Or $150 slots, which might have a higher EV for him.

Oh they most definitely do. Of course 150 on 17 black would as well.
