It might be time for live games ….

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?

  1. Last time I played live poker at a casino I sat down at a table of regulars.It was right out of 'Rounders'. They probably weren't much better then me but they all had the same goal. Take my money. That was an expensive lesson in live play. However I would do it again.I much prefer live play over the internet. A large part of poker for me is reading the opponent.

    • Very true. At the Seabrook site, I played across from an older gentleman (older than me – wow) and he just plodded along. Sometimes he would shake when he put his chips in the pot. I thought it was a tell but it turned out that he was just old and shaky. He did win quite a lot, making some wild draws – he was a regular there as well. If I play there enough, maybe some day I will become a shaky old regular?
