The bicycle casino in Bell gardens has a 1/3 with a 300 max buy. It's not too far from Long Beach. The Gardens casino in Hawaiian gardens is closer to LB than the bike. They have a 2/3 with a $200 max buy. Either one shouldn't take too long to get too. Probably 15 minutes to gardens and 30 in traffic to bike

3/5 300 min 300 max and 5/5 300 min 600 max will go around the clock at Gardens in the beautiful VIP room. Can call or text 562-412-4994 to get on the list (you'll have 30 minutes to arrive). You should be able to get into a game more or less right away.

Re: Los Angeles, CA

I'm visiting Los Angeles for a lousy reason, frankly - one of my best friends since HS is losing her courageous cancer battle and I have to say good bye. However due to her condition she cannot handle a 24/7 vigil so I will have downtime. So I wanna play poker.

Here's the usual questions that probably bore the crap out of you regs:
  • What room is best? I usually play $1/2 or $1/3 NLHE with $300 max buy-ins though I also enjoy mixed games in the $4/8 to $8/16 range. I also enjoy low-buy in donkaments.
  • How long does it take to get to the room?(s) I will be staying at an Airbnb in the Valley Glen area and my friend lives up in Santa Clarita.
  • Alcohol? Free? I am not the type to get ****-faced but I do like a beer or two while playing.
I of course welcome any other tips. My timing is pretty fluid. All I know is I get the rental car Sunday 11 AM and drop it back off Thursday around 11 AM and in between if I am not spending time with my my friend or sleeping I want to do some things. This involves playing cards, visiting Amoeba, visiting the Rainbow Room (I'm kind of metal) and on Monday night watching my Giants lose again.

If anyone wants to PM me that's fine. I'm also down with meeting fellow 2+2 folks and hopefully staying out of their pots.

Re: Los Angeles, CA

The Bike has a 2/3 game that is 300 max. Anything below 5/5 (300-500 min/max) at Commerce isn't worth playing.

I don't know anything about card rooms in Northern LA area that might be closer to you.

California law does not allow casinos to give away alcohol for free

Re: Los Angeles, CA

Coming from around where you are you're probably minimum half hour from either Bike or Commerce, but that's with little to no traffic (which is rare). During heavier traffic, I'd guess 60-90 minutes.

Re: Los Angeles, CA

Commerce seems to have mixed and other non-NLHE games at lower levels. Can they be counted on to run all the time?
