      Hello guys,

      A good friend of mine and myself would like to spend holidays in august the following way: going for 1 week in Europe and cru... play live poker in casinos. :P Do you guys know where are the best European spots for such a trip?

      What matters to us:
      - Europe
      - Fishy/okayish field
      - 1/2 available
      - Sunny place to chill out (its still holidays hey! ^^)

      So so if some of you guys already did something similar it'd be great to hear your advice/suggestions!

      Thanks for your help,
      Ben.

      Haha, interesting, we are doing the exact same thing. We have already decided on traveling just in Western Europe, and 2 of the final 5 or 6 destinations have already been decided:
      - Amsterdam
      - Barcelona

      To be honest, I have no idea what the other locations are going to be, because we haven't looked into the hotels and casinos yet. I'm not sure there's much gambling in Amsterdam, but I've heard there are some good poker casinos in Barcelona.

      So, I would also love some advice on what cities to visit where poker can be played in Western Europe?

      Hey Tunatic,

      Thanks for the reply. I've already been to the Amsterdam casino, you will love it! I have no idea about how tough the field is but the building&atmosphere are amazing.

      No idea about Barcelona but Im going to Barcelona at the beginning of august, I will go from there but it sounds already much more appealing than Amsterdam - for sun&beach reasons :P

      Keep up the suggestions!
      @Tunatic: could you please let us know here what will be the other 3/4 destinations youre gonna go to? Chheeeeerrrs!

      london is a great place for poker imo if you have not been there already

      the fox poker club is a good place for low buy in tourneys and cash game while the is also good cash action in the casinos as well

      im going back in december

      I know that there are only 4 casino's where you can play poker in Belgium, don't know about the traffic and stuff. But with only 4 casino's I wouldn't really recommend you coming here to play poker.

      I think Barcelona or Valencia is the right place to go. Casino in Barcelona is right next to beach, IIRC. Mondays to Thursdays they have 1/2 - it's soft also, as it's Spain.
