New to Crush Live Poker?

Florida / East Coast

Going to be working for a client in Atlanta for 5 weeks and would like to get some poker in on the weekends (cheap-ish flight). Florida seems to be my best bet, but curious to know if I should fly to Tampa and try the rooms around there (Lucky's Hard Rock, Silks, Derby Lane) or Ft. Lauderdale/Miami and go with those (Magic City, Casino Miami, Hialeah, Seminole Hard Rock). Looking for 2/5 (deeper than 100bb would be ideal) or some 1/3 that play like 2/5.

Can also justify a flight to Philly (Parx, Sugar House), AC (Borgata), or New Orleans (Harrah's).

Any advice/insight would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure how profitable you'll be playing those stakes AND buying plane tickets/weekend hotels. I'd say this comes down to comps and costs. First, is your home casino affiliated with any of the options on your radar? After that, I'm not sure the player pools would vary enough to offset your travel costs. Just find the cheapest trip and go.

    Cost of trip is irrelevant. Client will pay for me to travel to an alternate city instead of going home (to Houston, no casinos, no affiliations). Weekend hotel is also not an issue...I have so many hotel points in the bank that it will cost me $0. Just trying to stay somewhat close (in a perfect world, I would go to LA, but not worth the add'l travel time).

    Tampa is a lot easier to get around in with a rental car if u want to go to more than one room. Deep nlh is hard to find now as plo is gettingthose players. If that is your prioritiy then consider ft Lauderdale as a better choice

    I play in Tampa and find THR to be the best place for regular $2/5 games. Buy-in max is 200bb.

    Miami to West Palm is easy money. But it's crazy money. Took me a while to adapt like a Borg to the style out here. Completely different from the west coast.
