Louisiana Texas Holdem

Louisiana Texas Holdem Poker Rooms

The Pelican State is a real treat for poker players with several great options when it comes to finding live Texas holdem poker action. The state offers many rooms, all with a healthy number of tables and a great variety in games.

Of course, no limit Texas holdem is the pick in the state and most tournament play is played in this variant. You'll be able to find a good mix of other variants in ring games though, such as mixed, Omaha, and limit holdem.

Some of the bigger names in the casino market run poker rooms in Louisiana including Harrah's and Horseshoe, which are now both owned by Caesars Entertainment. This shows just how important the market is here and how popular poker has become. The game is still riding high and the standard is only improving, which is excellent for the rest of the country and for neighbouring states.

Gambling in Louisiana has been around for quite some time and the state law requires that individual jurisdictions manage this, as opposed to blanket legislation for all areas in the state. This means you'll find casinos both on land and on river boats, as well as horse racing and lottery. Casinos usually have standard slots and video poker, as well as table games, and poker in the rooms that we've listed for you below.

The pick of the bunch is certainly Coushatta, with Harrah's trailing just behind. The service in these poker rooms is like that you receive in the better rooms in Las Vegas. Many drinks are comped for players including alcoholic beverages, and most of the larger rooms offer comps at a dollar rate per hour.

Some big name tournaments also make their way down to the bayou state, with the WSOP making a stop for a circuit event. During those times, you'll find some of the best action on the felt, particularly in the accompanying cash games. Just because players can front the larger buy ins for the big name events doesn't mean they're a quality poker player. So, make sure you take advantage of the soft play during these times.

Online poker is still illegal in Louisiana so you'll need to get your fill at the real felt. It doesn't look like the state will regulate online play for some time, if at all. So, if you must play online you'll need to move or take a chance at one of the unlicensed online poker rooms offering play to US players. Overall though the options for live poker really are great and Louisiana is a great place for poker and the game is only continuing to thrive and grow in this region.
