If you are playing poker professionally or even recreationally I strongly suggest that you plan a few poker trips. This will allow you to get out there and see the world and make some money at the same time. I find that the best cash game action is located wherever a big tournament is being held. This is because big tournaments attract the fish. Simply put most tournament players are not skilled cash game players.
I just got back from a recent trip to Atlantic City and the cash game action at Caesars was amazing. This was because there was a world series of poker circuit event going on. I mainly played $5/10 nl and I can tell you that the level of play was very soft. I also played a lot of $2/5 nl. The max buyin was 500 for the 2/5 game and some of the tables had 4 or 5 players with over 2k stacks. As you could imagine pots were pretty big. Two Canadian’s finished 1st and 2nd at the final table of the 5k main event. I got to meet the 2nd place finisher (John Nixon) when I was down there. He seems like a pretty educated poker player. Go Team Canada!
Although I played a lot of poker at Caesars while in Atlantic City my favourite poker room in AC has got to be the Borgata. I think that this is definitely the best poker room by far in Atlantic City. The poker room has 85 tables and the stakes vary from $1/2 nl up to the $300/600 limit games.
Now that I am back in Toronto I am going to relax, play online, and enjoy everything this great city has to offer.
