What’s special about San Francisco Poker

San Francisco poker players less than an hour’s drive away from 13 different poker rooms. Card rooms in San Francisco largely are more inviting to amateur players because they are not frequented as often by the professionals and “sharks” you find in card rooms in the Los Angeles area.

Fans of Texas Hold’em will find plenty of action at lower and middle limits. Those looking for high-stakes poker action will want to check out Casino M8trix and Bay 101. Bay 101 runs up to $10/$20 NL and $100/$200 Limit. Once a month they run $200/$400 Limit. Casino M8trix runs games up to $25/$50 NL and $100/$200 Limit.

If you play something other than Texas Hold’em, you selection will be slim outside of Hold’em. Omaha Hi-Lo is spread in many rooms. Grafton Resort and Casino runs low limit PL Omaha during busier hours. The 101 Casino in Petaluma has perhaps the best variety in gaming. Besides Limit and NL Hold’em, you can also find low limit Omaha Hi-Lo, PL Omaha and a Spread Limit Mexican Poker game that runs twice a week. Please note that when the World Poker Tour is in town, Bay 101 will be the destination for cash games.

Tournament players will find primarily NL Hold’em action in San Francisco with varying buy-in. Most casinos hold events daily. Bay 101 is the only casino in San Francisco that holds a major annual poker event. Each year, the World Poker Tour comes to town for the Bay 101 Shooting Stars event. The Main Event features a bounty tournament with select professionals serving as “Shooting Stars.”
