Casino Poker Rooms
There are hundreds of card rooms where you can go and play live. I've reviewed some of the rooms in Atlantic City, you know, the place the streets in Monopoly were named after. I also have links to some other pages that review card rooms.
Atlantic City Poker Rooms
The Borgata - this poker room is a stop on the World Poker Tour, and is scheduled for a makeover that will be expanding the room, and bringing even more luxury to their players.
Caesar's Poker Arena - not one of the top rooms in the city, but worthy of mention.
Harrah's - the name behind the World Series of Poker. You cna find a WSOP circuit event being played here oncea year. This room is not on the boardwalk, but over by the Borgata and the Trump Marina instead.
The ShowBoat - is one of the rooms you can find on the boardwalk. While not one of the larger poker rooms in town, the House of Blues tie in makes it special.
The Tropicana - one of the big three poker rooms in AC. If you haven't been to town, put this room on your list of places you'd like to visit.
Trump Taj Mahal - the poker room in AC. Huge, just plain huge. I guess Donald Trump would never be accused of "underdoing" anything, and this poker room fits is mold.
Bally's Atlantic City - there are not one, but two different poker table areas in Bally's. The Wild West section of the casino has a no-smaoking poker area that focuses on tournament play. The upstairs (6th floor) room in Billy's allows smoking, and hosts the ring game action (and tournaments as well).
California Poker Rooms
Hawaiin Gardens Casino Poker Room - They offer daily tournaments, and a wider variety of card games to choose from than you'll find at most casinos. The casino is located, oddly enough, in the town of Hawaiin Gardens, CA.
The Bike - is a popular California casino, and their poker room plays host to events on the World Poker Tour each season. Check out my overview of the room for information on their one-of-a-kind poker webcasting series.
