Bay Area Poker Information

Now that I’m starting to settle in California a bit I’m starting to aggregate information about poker rooms out here.  I’ve built two useful resources for people interested in Texas Holdem poker in the Bay area.

The first is a Bay area map of casinos that I know have poker rooms.  I’m using “Bay Area” kind of loosely since some of these are as far as an hour away, but I’m not the first one to torture that phrase in the pursuit of marketing, so I presume you’ll forgive me.

The second resource you might find handy is the schedule I put together of poker tournaments at these same casinos.  These are the regularly scheduled tournaments, and is not intended to include one-time or special tournaments such as World Poker Tour events or World Series of Poker satellites.  As always, check with the casino if you’re unsure.

    Don’t know how good this place is but it’s beautiful country up there with camping and rafting to do with the family. *and* gamble. Just a few hours away.

    Oh thanks, I forgot about that one because they don’t have tournaments, but they do have a nice new poker room. I’ve added them to the map.

    Any reason you didn’t include Garden City? I haven’t played there, but thought you had. Maybe it’s crap. You might find some good info here,, and, though some is a bit dated – there is also some good stuff at
