Hi All,

I'm thinking of returning to some live cash game play. Could anyone comment on current live venues in London? I only want to play NL Holdem. I'm interested in ease of getting a seat, softness of games, speed of play, number of tables, how often games run etc. Cheers.

Just started playing live cash again myself recently after a 6 month break.

Aspers seems to always have tables running and has a good mix of recs who wonder in from the shopping mall to satisfy the nit regs. Played a session there on Friday after min cashing the tourny and somehow despite being really tired and a little drunk managed to spin up 5 buyins in just over an hour playing ABC and nut-peddling. Perhaps I was just lucky with the table I got put on (and the fact that it was the end of the month/pay day), but it is not the first time I have gone to Aspers and ended up at a table where at least 3 players seem to hate money.

Empire and Hippodrome still has plenty of value (although I have needed to table change more often at the Hippodrome due to more regs than I remember).

I have heard from friends that drift between the Leicester Sq casinos that numbers dropped earlier this year but things have picked up over the last few months. I haven't really noticed a big difference.

Can't really comment re other venues.

Typically, only small games at Aspers these days -several 1/1 tables and maybe a couple of 1/2.

Seeing 2/5 running more often at Vic and even Hippodrome.

Check out their twitter feeds for current info whenever you are thinking of playing.
