The Monarch Casino is a moderate-sized full-service casino in Black Hawk Colorado. Black Hawk and its contiguous neighbor Central City hold more than 18 casinos, four of which have poker rooms (The Monarch, Bally’s, Isle Casino, and Ameristar). The Monarch Casino Poker Room features 14 tables set in a modern, upscale environment.
The Mohegan Sun Pocono is set on a hill in the middle of Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania. It has the look and feel of its sister casino Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, but with a much, much smaller footprint. While we don’t particularly recommend Wilkes-Barre as a destination, the casino is attractive and full-service.
The Lebanon Poker Room and Casino is a small poker room (8 tables) in Lebanon New Hampshire. It is connected to the larger Filotimo Casino and Poker Room in Manchester, the Keene Casino Poker Room in Keene, and a couple of other small rooms across New Hampshire. As a result, the structure of Lebanon’s single weekly tournament will feel familiar to those players who frequent the other rooms.
The Concord Casino is one of the newer entrants to the New Hampshire Poker Room scene, having just opened in the middle of 2019. It currently resides both above (tournament room) and below (cash and table games) The Draft sports bar on Main Street in Concord. The setup is a bit atypical, but we were told that it’s also temporary. The Concord Casino is currently seeking a much larger space to move into later this year.
While the temporary digs might be slightly less than ideal, the tournament room is fitted out nicely. We spent a perfectly enjoyable evening there recently playing their regular Tuesday night tournament.
