Borgata Cash Poker Activity Mid-Atlantic

Cash Poker Table Activity Mid-Atlantic

Poker Pilgrims is happy to continue our Cash Poker Table Activity tracking. We recently completed collecting data on the average number of active cash poker tables by day across the Mid-Atlantic. By our definition, the Mid-Atlantic comprises all poker rooms in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia. Note that there is only one poker room reporting cash numbers in each of the states of Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia.

Our page with the Mid-Atlantic results is now live. Mid-Atlantic Cash Poker Activity 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 want to know 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.

Mid-Atlantic Cash Games

As of Spring 2022, there are 22 poker rooms in the Mid-Atlantic region that report cash poker activity to either Bravo Poker or Poker Atlas. Among these, MGM National Harbor, Maryland Live!, The Borgata, and Parx Casino in Philadelphia offer the most consistently active cash games. In Pittsburgh, Rivers Casino is the most active of the open rooms. However, even here you will find little action beyond $1/$2 and the occasional $2/$5 table.

If you are looking to play some PLO, Parx, and Maryland Live! are by far your best bets. Meanwhile, if you want to play higher stakes or other poker variants, The Borgata, MGM National Harbor, and Parx are the best place to be.

Outside of the Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey triangle, you will have to take what you can get. You are largely looking at $1/$2 or $1/$3 tables, with little choice of venue for hundreds of miles. In North Carolina, Harrah’s Cherokee is fairly active, and even offers a couple of PLO tables many nights. In West Virginia, the Hollywood Casino at Charlestown Races is by far the most active of the three reporting rooms. Note, however, that all three rooms are closed for part of the week.

If you happen to notice the relatively low number of poker room reviews on our site for this region, we are happy to report that we will be making a poker road trip to the area this fall. We hope to visit many of the rooms in Maryland and Eastern Pennsylvania at that time. So stay tuned!

 



 

Note that, 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 notable poker rooms in the Mid-Atlantic region report their cash numbers to either Poker Atlas or Bravo..

Our Plan

Our poker table cash activity pages will be updated regularly. Over time we will add cash poker activity for all US regions . We are currently working on the Midwest Region, which we will have live in a couple of weeks. Once this region is complete we will have all cash poker in the US tracked with the exception of Texas. Texas cash poker activity will be tracked in the month of October.

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 map of Cash Poker Activity page and investigate poker in the regions where we have completed tracking.

Vegas Poker Trends at the WSOP

Poker Trends 2022

It has been a big couple of years in poker. March 2020 serves as a defining line for poker that is almost as impactful as Black Friday was a decade before. Essentially all of the poker rooms in the country shut down that month (or soon thereafter). It took months to years before poker rooms opened back up (many never did) and it is not an exaggeration to say that everything’s different now. So how has poker changed as a result? These are the poker trends that we see in 2022.

A Significant Reduction in Poker Rooms

In March 2020 there were approximately 210 poker rooms in the United States sporting ten or more tables. Today, 159 of those have re-opened. Yes, we lost close to 25% of all sizable poker rooms in the country over the past two years. That fact alone is mind-boggling. To be fair, there are a handful of new poker rooms (Resorts World Las Vegas is a shining example), but these do not come anywhere close to making up for the sheer loss of venues caused by the pandemic.

How to Find the Best Poker Tournaments in 2022

The poker world has changed greatly over the past couple of years.  Many poker rooms closed never to re-open again. By our estimate, about 24% of the rooms with 10 or more tables In the United States as of December 2019, are no longer open. Some rooms re-opened but removed tables. Many others with previously active tournament rosters either eliminated tournaments altogether or greatly reduced their number of weekly events. The result is that finding any poker tournament can be a challenge in 2022, but finding the best poker tournaments is next to impossible.

Finding the Best Poker Tournaments in 2022

Defining the best poker tournament is, of course, complex. It’s not merely about cheap buy-ins. Sure, tournaments with $20-$40 buy-ins exist. Sadly, most of those are either severely short-stacked, almost immediate shove fests that are over before you know it, or require multiple addons to be competitive (becoming a $100+ tournament pretty quickly).

Cash Poker Activity Nevada

Poker Pilgrims is happy to continue our Cash Poker Activity analysis. We recently completed collecting data on the cash poker activity by day across the state of Nevada. Our page with the Nevada results is now live. Nevada Cash Poker Activity 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 cash poker activity pages will hopefully be of help.

Nevada Cash Poker Activity

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.

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.
