the commerce is great. it has everything a poker player could ask for. Your meals will be comped for playing 15-30 or higher. The food is the best, make sure to order the Thai fish, super yummy. Talk to one of the floor men and he will get you a room rate if you decide to visit first. Grease the floormens palms and it helps when situations arise. For sure go to the spa, real nice, comfortable and clean. for 25 bucks you can use all the facilities for the day. The action is fast and furious and I would disagree with the earlier post about the great california players, from my experience it doesn't get any better, ya there's lots of good players but there are also lots of real bad players playing at limits above there skill level, myself included at times. There is usually a pot limit he game that i would recommend staying away from. There are a couple of old timers that really rock in the pot limit dept. wouldn't recommend the comedy club unless your into latino comedy, I just didn't think the guys were that funny but you might. there is everygame imaginable and you will not be dissapointed. Lots of poker rooms in southern cal and I've been to most and spent lots of time at all the bigger rooms and the commerce remains my favorite. The hotel is run by holiday inn and is a seperate entity from the poker part but they work together fairly smoothly. Have fun and I wish i was going, I really love the commerce in case you can't tell from my blog.
