Poker in North America is as hot as it is anywhere else in the world. A poker player on the prowl for a good poker game should have relatively little difficulty finding a poker game just about anywhere in North America. There are some remote areas that will not apply, but in general, travel in the United States, Canada or Mexico can lead you from one poker game to the next.
The United States takes the lead in available poker games with the most casinos available anywhere. Many casinos in the US cater to poker players these days because of pokers popularity. The United States has a hand up on everyone being the home of the World Series of Poker Championships, held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The casinos in the United States often offer No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments, which poker players can generally enter for a small buy in.
Canada, refusing to be left behind, now has a poker championship of its own. The Canadian Poker Championships, which took place in February of 2006, and will be pulling together poker players from all over the country for years to come. In Canada there are many casinos that offer poker games to their customers. Poker games that are popular in Canada are Caribbean Stud Poker and Pai Gow Poker. Canadian casinos also offer poker tournaments to their poker players.
There is little to choose from in the way of casinos in Mexico that offer poker. One may have some luck finding a home poker game in Mexico. One of your resources for finding a home game would be the Home Games Forum. Here you may be able to find or orchestrate a home poker game in Mexico.
So to travelers in North America looking for a nice game of Texas Hold 'em or 7 Card Stud, a little looking around should turn up a poker game or two to choose from.
