The Best Live Poker Rooms - San Diego, New Mexico
California (continued)

San Diego

Yet another absolutely gorgeous location where you can spend the day at the beach and the
night at one of many Poker Rooms.

Ocean's Eleven Casino  

Oceans 11 Casino is one of the premier card rooms in Southern California, with a 45 table card
room located directly off the 5 freeway in Oceanside, about 40 miles north of San Diego.

It has a half dozen tables for Caribbean Stud and 21st Century Blackjack, but nearly all the
casino is set up around poker. The main room (23 tables) is for higher-limit games (4/8 and up)
and a whole secondary room to the right is for lower limit games.

A wide variety of no-limit and limit stakes is offered for both cash and tournaments.  A player
card reward program is run to earn cash back and special events are offered every month.
The easygoing staff and large number of regulars keep games going all night, with many low
limit games constantly in session.


Limit hold 'em: $1/2, $2/4, $3/6, $4/8, $8/16, $20/40, $40/80, $75-150
No-limit hold 'em: $1/1 blinds 20-40 buy-in, $1/2 blinds 40-80 buy-in, $2/3 blinds 100-300,
$5-5 blinds 1000 max buy-in.
Omaha Hi-Lo: $2/4, $4/8

Note: They have a tremendous reputation for great food at very low prices.  Also, while this is
considered a top California Poker Room, it is much more so for the play, not due to the fantastic
architectural design.  So do not be surprised if you are a little disappointed by first impressions.

slot, video poker, video bingo and video blackjack machines and 60 gaming tables, not to

Viejas Casino
New Mexico

Besides being a very beautiful state with some lesser known spectacular Mountain retreats and
a historic large city, it is a FANTASTIC place to play poker.


The city was founded in 1706 as the Spanish colonial outpost of Alburquerque; present-day
Albuquerque retains much of the Spanish cultural and historical heritage.  Yet another
combination of sightseeing during the day and hot poker action at night.
