Ohio Texas Holdem Poker Rooms

Ohio Texas Hold'em Poker Rooms

If you live in Ohio and play poker, then hopefully you're near the capital of Columbus. Most of the big poker rooms are located around this city, although you'll find some action in Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Toledo also.

Most of the play is in the casinos with a few private clubs that require membership. Because of the limited rooms, those that do exist are quite large and offer a lot of tournament play and cash games.

Although no limit holdem is still king in Ohio, you'll find Omaha, limit holdem and HORSE games in most of the larger rooms. If you're a professional in these games you should be able to capitalise on the weaker no limit holdem players.

The standard of play in Ohio is decent, and the poker middle class has certainly risen to the top. This means the economy of the game is struggling a bit, but most regulars and poker room staff know they need to make newer players and visitors feel welcome to keep the game thriving. So if you play poker in an Ohio poker room make sure you do your bit in this respect.

If you love Las Vegas style poker rooms then you'll find similar rooms in Ohio, which is a great thing. Because we all know Vegas does it best, so why try to do anything else.
