Why it should be from those two specific countries?

As I live in Belgium near the border with Holland, its obvious i go and play there in a casino.

I am playinmg online for over a year and I just want to try play poker llive in a casino.

I consider it as a night going out and was thinking of a budget of 150 to 200 euro's

I don't know what a minimum buy-in is at a casino or what blinds the lowest tables play.

Also the costs of the drinks is unknown for me.

Was just wondering if there were people here that could share therir experiences

I would choose Holland if i was you and wanted to do this, if it isnt much
of a difference on the money,for the obvious reasons that a after a session good or bad,
its legal to relax in a cafe Smile

I should imagine that playing poker in a casino in either of those countries is not too different from most others but I have never been to either so I may be wrong.

Min buy-in and stakes usually varies between casinos. Some busy casinos will have a lot of options but in my experience it often varies between times and nights of the week. So do some research. It's not hard to check a casino website for what they offer. Maybe phone them and ask them which night is their busiest and what stakes they offer.

Whatever the min buy-in is for a cash game, you should be thinking about what stack you like to have. I like to buy-in at 50bb but in most casinos that's quite a short stack.

I would recommend checking out tournaments. They last longer and you can make more of your night. If a good night out is the idea then a tournament is a good way to ensure a decent game and you don't have to worry about turning up and finding you haven't budgeted enough. You can always take extra money for a cash game for afterwards.

Have fun. Live poker is a completely different animal.

Thx for the info awood88

The idea of a live turney is good and i ll get some info about that.

I already thought of the idea to get only a certain amount of cash money and leaving the bank and credit cards at home so i can not do crazy things.

I was budgetting about 150 euros for poker money and 50 euros for drinks etc

and if this would become profitable even better but I am not counting on that.

It s for the experience and a win would be a plus

Since i'm not from those two countries i cannot make you a suggestion on were to play but be advice that the lowest stakes in casinos are higher than online...

Not sure what stakes do you play online but here the lowest live limit is .25/.50 dollars at nlhe.

Because he do not want to fly over an ocean to play a few hands of poker.Live poker is so different from on line,have deal with the opponent face to face,a lot of noise around you.Pay battention.Good luck

Probably you missed my point there.
He asked the opinion from persons living in those two countries, and i asked why
he limited there, while he was talking about minimum money he should be buying in.

Mober you are wrong he didnt ask for the opinion from people from them countries..he said "Are there any PLAYERS that have already played live poker in Belgium or Holland."

he was asking in general had anyone played in specific countries..so anyone visiting said countries and played in a casino there is safe to answer him...lol

ive only played live poker in UK, ireland and greece

but goodluck when you do go..imo i believe it to be better to play live as you can get a rea on players which is alot harder to do online.
