For Andrew's Birthday, we're playing cards somewhere. I'm trying to figure out the best spot to go. For tournament style action, here's what I've found for Friday's:
The Bicycle in Bell Gardens runs a daily tournament for $40 (30+10) with no rebuys, but it starts at noon.
Commerce runs their Daily tournament for $120 (100+20) with multiple re-buys, and it also starts at noon.
Crystal Casino in Compton runs a Friday tournament with a $30 buy in (20+10), and it starts at 7PM. Multiple re-buys however.
Normandie runs their daily tournament starting at 7PM. $25 buy in with 10$ re-buys.
Hawaiian Gardens Casino runs two tournaments on Friday, but they start at 4pm and 4:30 pm. The earlier one has a $155 buy in with no rebuys. The later one is a $65 buy in with a one time optional $50 re-buy.
Hollywood Park runs two daily tournaments on Friday. An 11:30 AM poker and ponies NL Holdem with a $30 buy-in. I think that this has multiple re-buys. They also run a Friday night tournament starting at 7:30 PM, but the buy in is steep at $330.
I also came across a site (losangelespokerplayers.com) that listed a home game in Sherman Oaks called Randy's Game. It says "Friday nights 8:30pm. $20 NL hold em game." I e-mailed the contact info listed, but haven't heard back yet. I'll let you know when I do if that's an option.
Anyhow, that's really all I found in the area. What do you think?
