5 Poker Rooms in Beautiful Settings

Over the past year, we have taken a number of poker road trips. We’ve visited rooms in the middle of cities, such as The Jack in Cleveland, and rooms in the middle of nowhere (hello Ebro!). However, if you’re looking for both stunning vistas and great poker, we have some recommendations for excellent poker rooms in beautiful settings. From the mountains to the desert, from rolling hills to the beach, we offer the following idyllic locations.

Average Number of Cash Poker Tables Nevada

Poker Pilgrims is happy to continue our Average Number of Cash Poker Tables tracking. We recently completed collecting data on the average number of cash poker tables by day across the state of Nevada. Our page with the Nevada results is now live. Nevada 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 table counts by venue, day, or game ($1/$2, $2/$5, PLO, or Other).

Sites such as Poker Atlas and Bravo Poker Live offer users the ability to see the 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 tables pages will hopefully be of help.

Nevada Cash Games

As of Spring 2022, there are 24 poker rooms in Nevada that report numbers of cash poker tables to either Bravo Poker or Poker Atlas. Among these, the Venetian, Orleans, Bellagio, and South Point offer the most consistently active cash games in the state. If you are looking to play some PLO, the Aria and the Wynn are your best bets. Meanwhile, if you want to play higher stakes or other poker variants, Orleans and Bellagio are the best place to be. Because there are so many rooms so close together in Las Vegas, you do not see any one room stealing the show. In Florida, the Hard Rock Hollywood and Tampa dominate their given locales. However in Las Vegas, the wealth is more spread among a variety of rooms. Outside of the Strip and Downtown, Red Rock Casino in Summerlin offers healthy action, and outside of Las Vegas altogether, your best bet is the Peppermill Casino in Reno.

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, all of the big poker rooms in Las Vegas report, as do most of the significant rooms across Nevada. In fact, the Riverside Casino in Laughlin may be the only non-reporting room in the state with more than 6 tables.

Our Plan

The average number of cash tables page will be updated regularly. Over time we will add average cash numbers for other US regions with high concentrations of poker rooms. These will include areas such as Chicago, Southern California, and the mid-Atlantic seaboard. We are currently working on the mid-Atlantic seaboard, which we will have live by June.

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 Nevada, New England, and Florida pages.

Daytona Beach Racing and Card Club

An Extended Florida Poker Road Trip

Florida has long been one of the primary poker regions in the country. Unsurprisingly, poker in Florida has come back strong, with most rooms reopened and a thriving cash game landscape. Further, unlike some regions where tournament poker has been slow to revive, Florida has many rooms offering daily tournaments. So what a great time to take a Florida poker road trip!

The exact order in which you visit Florida poker rooms will depend on your current location. The two main directions would be to arrive from the West through the panhandle or from the north down the coast. Let’s imagine that you’ve entered from the north. If you have. hopefully, you’ve stopped in Charleston, SC for some non-poker fun and great food. If you are coming from a different direction, revise at will.

Among these, Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Bay, Derby Lane, and BestBet Jacksonville offer the most consistently active cash games in the state.

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 Florida that offer the opportunity for cash play. These include Dania Beach, Ocala-Gainesville, Ebro, Palm Beach Kennel Club, and a few others. Most of these poker rooms will have a table or two of $1/$2 running several evenings and weekends, but not much more.

Cross Country Road Trip: Las Vegas to Boston

We recently shared the details of our cross-country poker road trip from Boston to Las Vegas. On that journey, we mainly followed Route 80 across the northern part of the United States, visiting multiple poker rooms along the way. For our return to Boston in November, we chose a more southern route, largely following Route 40 back to the East Coast. After a poker-packed month in Las Vegas, we also decided to focus on the sights, rather than more poker for our return home. We will visit any poker rooms that we missed along the way on a future trip. The current post describes our adventures traveling across the South.

As with our previous road trip, we had a very carefully thought-out plan…which we then completely reconfigured. We learned during our September poker road trip to Las Vegas that moving quickly across the country with long drives every day can be tiring. So on our way home we decided to take it slower. Many of our days featured short drives, and we chose to stay two nights in a couple of our destinations to get some more time to explore.
