Poker Pilgrims is happy to continue our Cash Poker Table Activity analysis. We recently completed collecting data on cash poker table activity across California.
Our page with California results is now live. California Cash Poker Activity can be accessed via the drop-down menus at the top of the homepage (under Poker Room Information). Note that there are filters on the page for 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, they do not allow you to plan your next poker visit in advance. Currently, if I want to know how many $1-$2 no-limit tables the Commerce Casino 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 cash poker table activity pages will hopefully be of help.
California Cash Poker Analysis
As of Summer 2022, there are 23 poker rooms in California with 6 or more tables that report cash poker table activity to either Bravo Poker or Poker Atlas. Among these, the Commerce and Hustler in LA, Oceans 11 in San Diego, and Morongo in Palm Springs offer the most consistently active cash games. Notably, several very large poker rooms in California do not report to either Bravo or Poker Atlas. These include the Bay 101 in San Jose, The Gardens and Hollywood Park in LA, and Oaks Card Club north of San Francisco.
Interestingly, there is very little PLO played in California. However, if you want to play higher stakes or other poker variants, LA is the place to play, with the Commerce, Bicycle and Hustler all offering a healthy collection of these games. You will find a variety of high stakes games at these casinos as well as Big O, the occasional limit game, and even some mixed games.
Outside of LA and the San Francisco area, rooms are smaller and offer less cash poker activity. You are largely looking at a handful $1/$2 or $1/$3 tables, with maybe a couple of $2/$5 tables and little choice of venue for hundreds of miles.
Our poker table cash activity pages will be updated regularly. Over time we will add cash poker activity for all US regions . These will include areas such as Chicago, the Mid-West, and Texas. We are currently working on The Upper Tier, which we will have live in a couple of weeks.

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, Mid-Atlantic, and Florida pages.
