Recently we wrote about the Resorts World Las Vegas, which holds the newest poker room on the Las Vegas Strip. Now we review the poker room at the Sahara, one of the oldest remaining casinos on the Strip. The Sahara sits at the very northern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, near the Stratosphere, and hosts a small but charming poker room. Read More
Resorts World Las Vegas is the newest mega-resort on the Las Vegas Strip. The resort sits at the northern end of Las Vegas Boulevard near the Stratosphere and houses multiple hotels, restaurants, and conference areas in addition to the gaming floor, sky casino, sportsbook, and poker room. The Resorts World Las Vegas poker room is not only the newest poker room on the strip, it is the first new poker room to open in Vegas in over fifteen years.
Poker Pilgrims is happy to revive our Average Number of Cash Poker Tables tracking. Now that COVID has loosened its grip on poker, we have resumed collecting data on the average number of poker tables by day across New England. Our first page with those results is again live. New England Cash Poker average number of tables can be accessed via the drop-down menus at the top of the homepage (under Poker Room Information). Note that there are a series of filters at the top of the page that will allow you to filter details by venue, day, or type of table.
Since we last tracked New England’s average number of cash tables in 2019, much has changed. Hampton Falls has closed, The Brooke has changed its name and dropped tournament play, Filotimo has also changed its name and expanded, and Encore Boston Harbor’s poker room, at the time of publication, remains closed (although this will change soon). Several rooms in New England dropped the number of available poker tables, and most are offering 8 or 9-seated poker tables, whereas many used to seat 10. Additionally, Boston Billiards and Filotimo have both added the option of $1/$3 poker, as have a number of poker rooms across the country.
We are happy to report that poker remains alive and well in New England. With Encore bowing out of the competition, the number of tables in play on any given night is elsewhere. However, the big winners appear to be The Boston Billiard Club and Casino, Chasers, and Foxwoods. Some things have actually remained the same. For example, Foxwoods is still the only reliable poker room in New England if your interest is mixed games. If you want to play a game other than Hold’Em or Omaha, Foxwoods is the place to go.
Note, as always, these numbers are drawn from Poker Atlas and Bravo Poker Live. We are unable to include poker rooms that do not report to one of these sites. However, there are a number of other small poker rooms in New England that offer the opportunity for cash play. These include Keene, The Concord Casino, Lebanon, Dover, The Lakes Region Casino, and a couple of others. Most of these poker rooms will have a table or two of $1/$2 running several evenings and weekends, but not much more.
The average number of cash tables page will be updated approximately every three months. Over time we will add average cash numbers for other US regions with high concentrations of poker rooms. These will include areas such as Florida, Las Vegas, Southern California, and the mid-Atlantic seaboard. We are currently working on Florida, which we will have live by March.Poker Pilgrims is proud to reintroduce tracking of Average Number of Cash Poker TablesClick To Tweet
Sites such as Poker Atlas and Bravo Poker Live offer users the ability to see current numbers of cash players at a venue at any given time. However, we have not found a resource that allows you to plan your next poker visit in advance. Currently, if I would like to learn how many $1-$2 no-limit tables Maryland Live! gets on a Thursday evening, there is nowhere to go to find that information. Poker Pilgrims hopes to fill that gap. Whether you are figuring out where to play poker next weekend, or where to plan your next poker vacation, our average number of cash poker table page will hopefully be of help.
Ultimately, our vision is to track the number of average cash poker tables across the country. In areas where a poker player has options, this information, along with room reviews, can help you make a discerning choice. Be patient with us as we work to populate these tables. In the meantime, feel free to visit our New England page.
