Poker in Bogota, Colombia

poker bogotaThere are plenty of casinos in Bogota, and many of those casinos have poker. While the weakness of the Colombian peso makes for a very inexpensive trip, it also makes it difficult to find a game with higher stakes. However, Bogota is absolutely a city worth visiting, even if the lower stakes makes it a challenge to pay for the trip with poker winnings. The people are incredibly friendly (as long as you stay in safe areas), the women are drop dead gorgeous, and the food is delicious. Although the stakes are somewhat low, the locals give plenty of action!

The most commonly spread games are tough to beat due to high rake and short buy-ins, and the atmosphere at the tables is one of the worst I have ever encountered.

Bogota Poker Rooms

Shark Poker Club Model ThumbnailAlthough the amount of poker in Bogota was disappointing (especially considering the city's population), this was still one of my favorite poker trips. The reasonable prices, excellent dining, friendly people, and abundance of stunningly beautiful women made for a wonderful vacation. Sadly, the locals seem to prefer playing tournaments (and I was looking primarily to play cash games). However, the cash games I managed to find were loose, with plenty of action, but fairly small stakes.
