Overall Thoughts About Legal Poker In Texas

If you want to play live poker in Texas then you had better get some friends and organize a home game. Despite Texas presumably being the home of Texas Hold'em, the state only has one option located down by the Texas/Mexico board at Eagle Pass which is convenient for no one. Depending on where you live, the best option for live, regulated poker will be in Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas or New Mexico.

Knowing how sparse poker rooms are in Texas, even legends like Amarillo Slim and Doyle Brunson, the Texas Dolly, would be receptive to playing poker online. That's because hard core players like that know the dangers of land-based games and it doesn't always come from the law but rather outlaws. Simply put, playing online is a much safer and more convenient option which more and more Texas residents turn to whether they want cash games, tournaments or even just to practice playing.
