LATB has been running a semi regular 25/50 game (I think every Friday if I'm not mistaken), so if you are willing to play on the stream you can find a bigger game. Check the schedule on their site for exact dates/times that runs.

Re: Bicycle Casino (Los Angeles, CA)

Bike will give you a decent rate if you ask. You also earn $3/hr on your player's card which you can use for food and hotel amenities. I'd recommend staying there because their hotel is a lot nicer than Commerce's. You will get a discounted rate when you get here. As for higher stakes, 5/10+ will be running usually during/after the bigger shows a few nights a week. It also pops up on weekends sometimes. I wouldn't say eco74 is right, either. The 5/10 at Bike is rarely just 5/10. Often straddles a ton and is uncapped.

There are hosts for different higher limit games who help handle percs and comps - I've seen it often enough at 20/40 LH and above.

If you're not interested in calling the Bike and asking for the top section floorman, I'd contact the Live at the Bike twitter account. I'm sure you'll be sent in the right direction for a contact.

If you do call the bike, try to find a night that top section/VIP floorman Brian W. is working- swing shift. Best guy ever.

Anyone know who I can reach out to?
Maybe this is different now from last time I was there, but I was there less than a year ago.

There is a sort of high roller section for poker at the Bike that is 1-2 tables. The game is mostly dead during the week. It's not 10/20 NLHE, but the general rule is that the game will go as high as the players want. Last time I played there it was around 5-10NLHE and there were only 2 other players there. This was like Tuesday at 3PM. Someone had what looked like his last $300 in front of him, I had brought in $800 I think, and some bald guy had like over $2,000. Game lasted about 2-3 hours?

I went back over the weekend and both tables were full. You're not going to play 10-20NLHE there, go to Commerce or Hustler. The Bike is overrated IMO. Maybe if it were a lil closer to the other LA casinos I'd go more often. I'm not going to go out of my way to go to a dirty poker room.

The new Lucky Lady Casino is really really really nice. All of the tables and seats still feel fresh and clean, unlike Commerce which is long overdue for a major overhaul with carpet and felts that are ripping apart. But I think when I was there there was like exactly 1 poker table running, I think it was $100NLHE.

Eh

Bicycle Casino (Los Angeles, CA)

Yeah already having a bad experience with this casino and have decided to play elsewhere.

Tried reserving my spot on LATB for a few days in late November. They responded that I’m booked for 2/3 days (ignoring the 3rd day which is the 25/50/100). I have no interest in flying out there to only play 5/10 so I emailed back asking for clarity. No reply. Followed up and still no reply.

I’m sure they have plenty of interest for those games but the fact that they couldn’t answer me straight after 3 tries is sort of frustrating and they just lost out on a guy who would’ve been walking around their casino with a bunch of $$ for a week.

Thanks everyone for the replies
