The Vic has the largest offering of cash games in London. They cater to players of all levels of skill and bankroll. You can regularly find NL Holdem games from £1-£1 up to £10-£25. On Mondays and once in while when there is demand, you will find £25-£50 games as well. By the way, £1-£2 cash games are common around London, but the £1-£2 games here are extremely tight compared to other cardrooms and clubs!
The £1-£1 and £1-£2 games are raked at 10% up to £5 and 5% up to £10 respectively. For stakes higher than £1-£2 there are session fees, starting at £6 for a half-hour for the £1-£3 game.
For PL Omaha, stakes range from £1-£2 up to £5-£10, and up to £10-£25 during mini-festivals. The only fairly regular PL Omaha game, however, is the £5-£10 game which has a £7.50 session fee for 30 min. A table is reserved for this game from 7pm Monday-Friday. There are also Dealers Choice and Round of Each games, but they are much less regular.
Please note that cash game schedules may change due to level of demand, so please contact the cardroom if you want to play some of the less common games/stakes.
The Vic is the oldest card room and the "spiritual" home of poker in London. It is very well-run and by far has the widest variety of games you will find at any poker room in London.
The Vic is the best card room for high-stakes poker, and virtually all professional players in Britain have played at the Vic at one point or another. It is not uncommon to spot a pro at one of the tables. The Vic seats around 250 people and has hosted various Tournaments including EPT London and the Grand Final of the GUKPT.
You will find a very mixed crowd at the Vic - find both older and younger players, experienced and less-experienced. While there are regulars like any card room, you are much more likely to find new faces at the Vic. They have the best variety of games amongst all card rooms, so cater to players of all levels and bankrolls.
The card room is extremely well-run and the electronic waiting system for cash games is very useful. You just swipe your card, indicate what game you want to play (can register for more than one) and just wait for your name to be called out. On busy nights, however, waiting times can be long, sometimes as long as a couple of hours.
The Vic takes up a whole floor at the Grosvenor Casino, which is one of the largest casinos in London. Having a card room at the casino can be a dangerous thing, so just be careful not to blow your poker money at the roulette table while you are waiting for a game!
Membership is free and you can join the same day. Just make sure you bring your id. Dress code is smart casual, so as long you are not wearing shorts, sportswear, ripped jeans, etc. you are ok. You can wear a cap at the poker table, although not anywhere else in the casino. Hoodies are ok as well.
Food & Drink
The restaurant serves Thai and Chinese cuisine, but you will find regular bar food too - burgers, chips, etc. The bar is open to 2am, or until 4am if you are gambling at the tables.
You register for a cash game by swiping your card, and just wait for your name to be called. It's very simple and efficient, but when there are a lot of people, it is not unusual to end up waiting for a while to be seated.
This well known poker place is very disapointing. The computer table reservation system is a nice feature. The staff and management are average at best and not so friendly. The poker room is small and you will wait 30-60+ minutes to play. Food is limited and also average. I have been there 6 times in 2012 so far. On the + side, this is where you will find the most players for cash games and tournaments. 1/2 locals/1/2tourists For UK, it is 3 stars but compare to the best places, 2 max. Try it anyway...
Good spread of tournamnts - knowledgeable & likeable dealers. Standard of players is v good - the lower end trnamnts occasionally have inexperienced runners. Roomy cardroom, - final table gets a free drink each. The smoking area is a long way from tables though. Cant think of any other negatives.
the best poker room in town.
i have been there 3 times so far and there were several tables going each time i have been there. i will continue to come to this casino.
Great place to play cash in London. You will never know what you will get and how the table dynamic will be. The waitresses are often busy, if not overwhelmed on busy nights, but the service is decent.. There's ALWAYS a table for a cash session at the Vic.
I like the vic a lot.I hear pros come here to play, but certainly not at the low stakes I play at, because its pretty common to get some fish at the 1-2 games. Its more "impersonal" than some of the smaller, private clubs, but its well run and professional.
