      Hello guys,

      I am planning to move to another country in 2-3 months from now and I consider London as one of the most likely destinations. Do you know if there are any good PLO live cash games in London casinos? I'm interested in few additional information:
      -what stakes are available?
      -number of fish and regs
      -rake
      -are there good games on daily basis or just weekends?

      I will appreciate any information

      Take this with a grain of salt as I'm currently in Gibraltar rather than London.

      From what I recall, The Vic (Edgware Road) and the Fox Poker Club both spread PLO cash games - £1/£2 £1/£3 £2/£5 kind of region.

      I think The International Club does £0.50/£1 games, not sure about PLO.

      There are 7m people in London so the games run pretty much 24/7, obviously peak times will be evenings/night.

      Never played PLO live in London but the NL games are standardly full of lolbad fish like any good live game.

      I would recommend checking out:

      The Victoria Casino
      Fox Poker Club
      Empire Casino

      Hope this helps.

      I play some live PLO in London.

      The Empire Casino in Leicester Square currently has a live 1/2 game Monday - Wednesday with the rake being 5% capped at £5. These games are a bit hit and miss and don't always run. Usually rake is 5% capped at £10.

      Fox Poker Club has some live 1/1 and 1/2 but it's very ad hoc and you can't guarantee a game running. When they do it's quite often dealers choice with NL, Irish and/or 5 card PLO.

      I don't play at the Vic but by all accounts it's the biggest and most popular room so it's most likely to have good daily games.

      The standard is hit and miss but generally the games are very soft. You can expect a couple of whales on every table. Having said that, I think some of the best players also gravitate to the PLO games.

      Victoria always has £2/5 running with uncapped buyin and often with straddles, so it plays pretty high. Sometimes they will have 5/10 or even 10/25, but I don't think that runs a lot.
