Can anyone please compare these two cities.

Where will get better value (in terms of lifestyle quality) for money?

Poker-wise, which place is better to grind 2/5 NL holdem?

Can you please recommend some clubs in Austin where 2/5 run regurarly? I can't find that many but I heard there were many.

Thanks a lot.

Havenít been to Austin and have never grinded for a living but I can tell you that anywhere in California (and San Diego especially) is expensive as ****, and there arenít many live venues to game select from.

In my limited totally not statistically significant experience the 2/5 at 7 mile wasn't that great, many regs, not that many punters. At least pre-covid it was running, I dunno if 24/7, but at least regularly, also at off-peak times. Making a living out of that in SD sounds like not the easiest job though, that is correct. Pretty expensive place, nice city though. At Jamul there wasn't even 2/5 running when I was there, Oceans 11 was a bit better but that's already halfway to LA. I'd take a 5/10 LA game anytime though over the aforementioned ones.
Austin I've never been, it's not that big a city though so I doubt you find many cardrooms there

Thanks for taking the time do do such an extensive write-up. I will definitely let you know if I have any questions. I will actually be there from Jan. 30th to Feb. 2nd, I'll buy the first round if you down.

Oceans 11 in Oceanside!! Idk much about Austin, but SD is Cali so what more can you ask for. SD is prob the worst of cali tbh, but still lit.
