Montreal Poker: Where to Play

Posted on August 26th, 2009 by .

Poker is the biggest card game in the world and, though Las Vegas is still king, Montreal has become an international destination for poker players of every skill level. Even Cirque de Soleil’s Guy Laliberte is known as a huge fan. From the VIP poker room at the Montreal Casino, to some other spots you may not have heard of, Montreal is holding all the cards necessary to take care of all your poker needs…

    Casino de Montréal: This should be your first stop. Their VIP Poker area is high class, very sleek and sophisticated, centered about a long neon-lit bar that some friends and I recently visited during a bachelor party in Montreal.

    Tournaments: Poker tournaments are frequently held at the Casino de Montréal. The “Classique Vincent Lecavalier” is on September 1st and has $60,000 in prizes. And since this is Montreal, you can even have a smoked meat sandwich while you take a break and plot your next game.

    The Montreal Open: This is a great tournament, but sadly, you’ll have to wait until March to try your hand at winning tons of money and a trip to Las Vegas- but you can register online now.

And hey, once you win some hard-earned Poker money, come back to this Montreal Nightlife blog to find all the best places to get rid of it before you leave town…
