I'm a big fan of Bravo Poker Live data, but I always felt like their UI could use some help. I had a little downtime, so built what I think is a better UI for looking at live B&M game data just for the hell of it and to play around with some different technology. Use Cases I was trying to satisfy as follows:
1) Easy interface to find and filter live games running in casinos around the country
2) Help me plan a trip to play poker. i.e. (I want to play 40/80 Hold Em), where and when is the game likely to be running?
3) One click access to my favorite casinos
4) Visualize some of the data just to see what it looks like out of curiosity.
I'm pretty happy with how things turned out, so posting here for more feedback:

FWIW, I've done light testing on the following and everything seems to work well enough:
-Safari on Mac
-iOS (i.e. iPad, iPhone). Not optimized for mobile, but everything works
-Android. Not optimized for mobile, but everything works
In case anybody is interested, here's the tech that went into the site:
-node.js (to collect data)
-php (haven't used php in forever, wanted a refresher)
-datatables jQuery plugin
-bootstrap (seriously awesome for quickly putting decent/nice UIs together)
-quova (IP geo-location)
Anyhow, interested in any/all feedback. Thanks for looking!
