I live in Fremont NH and I have just found out that there are at least three poker rooms with 30 minutes of my home and seven poker rooms overall that are close to me in New Hampshire. The ones closest are in Seabrook, Manchester, and Salem NH. So far the only one I have visited and played at was the Seabrook room. My success there has been spotty. However, this was before I read and re-read my favorite poker books by Mason Malmuth and David Sklansky.
The following is a list of the poker rooms in New Hampshire that I am aware of and their location and hours of operation.

In the next few months, I plan to visit each room and play some Limit Hold ‘Em and try to get a feel for each room. I am aware that each room may have a different group of players and that the day of the week and the hours of the day that I play might make a difference in my results. I will collect my notes for each room and le you know what I find out.
Do you have poker rooms near to you? Do you have a favorite one? Do you prefer face to face play versus online playing?
