Cleveland’s new poker room is busy

The photo above captures the logo on the floor leading up to the poker room at the new Horseshoe Casino in downtown Cleveland. The new casino opened several weeks ago, and the poker room has been very busy.

Cleveland is a poker town. And this place is proof.

The Horseshoe’s 24-hour-a-day poker room has ranked among the busiest in the country since the casino opened May 14, according to Bravo Poker Live, a software application that tracks tables in use, the kinds of games available and the size of waiting lists at casinos nationwide.

Information for the Horseshoe poker room, found through the app, has received more than 85,000 hits, according to the software’s provider, Genesis Gaming.

A check of Bravo Poker Live at midafternoon Wednesday showed that the Horseshoe had 16 tables going, eighth among 100 that supplied data; early afternoon Thursday, the number was down to 11, but that was still good for a four-way tie for ninth out of 90 venues.

It’s been so busy that they haven’t been hosting tournaments since the cash games are more profitable for the casino.
