Poker Pilgrims is happy to continue our Average Number of Cash Poker Tables tracking. We recently completed collecting data on the average number of 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 average number of tables 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 numbers of cash poker tables 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..

The average number of cash tables page will be updated regularly. Over time we will add average cash numbers for other US regions with high concentrations of poker rooms. These will include areas such as Chicago, California, and Texas. We are currently working on California, which we will have live by July.

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 Nevada, New England, and Florida pages.
