Most of the posts of Poker in the toronto area are old and the rooms/games aren't running anymore, or the contact people have new e-mails/phone numbers. Does anybody know of cash games around Toronto (Most convenient for me would be northern part like north york or thornhill) but anywhere in T.O. would do. I am looking for something around 1/2 NL.

I would also be interested in tournies, but not rly small ones. Perhaps 20 or more people.

Please let me know if you know of any poker clubs or home games.

Thanks,
- Ripper

Stick to the casino poker rooms

Casino Rama - Orillia - take the bus from Toronto

Great Blue Heron - Port Perry BLue Heron runs single tourney tables Mon - Thurs (think its 100 Buyin)

Fallsview/Casino Niagara - take the bus from Toronto


Casino Ramas poker room is now mostly spreading 1/2 NL
GBH is mostly limit holdem and Omaha

Hi Ripper,

There is a game occassionally in Markham and the next one is Feb 16 at 7PM (Registration). There will be at least 2 tables, maybe 3..

It is north of the city in Markham..

A lot of poker rooms have been shut down in Toronto and Mississauga. Not only are the police going after the owners but they are prosecuting the players too. For this reason I no longer play raked games at underground clubs.

Could you substantiate this? Even though I've been too busy too play poker (yes I said it) the anectdotal evidence (and the odd call from rooms that were previously closed down) make this seem a little suspect. Certainly everyone is being more careful but I haven't heard of any players being prosecuted and poker players tend to be a gossipy bunch!

I haven't heard of any player being arrested. Just their names taken down, $ on the table lost, and told to go home.

Agree with Actyper.

I've been in a room that was raided a few months back. Cops just took down my name, ran it to see if I had any record, and let me go. Same with the other players.

Shitty thing is I was up 2 buy-ins. GG profit.

There is a pretty decent place at hwy 27/hwy 7, they usually have 1-2 NL game on Wednesday and on the weekends 2-5 and 5-5 no limit games, and 10-20 limit. Place is not a dive either, really nice and big.

They are having a tournament on Saturday w a 10K 1st prize guaranteed. I have been to tournaments there and there is never less that 50 players, which for me is considered a fair size. Usually 2-4 live games afterwards.

Email me if you would are interested and want the location.
