  • Commerce Hold 'em Series - Annual tournament held in September with smaller buy-ins where every event is Texas hold 'em.
  • The L.A. Poker Open - Annual tournament held in November.

  • The Arena Sports Bar & Grill - Offers a variety of International cuisine with entertainment, live sporting events and karaoke on various nights. Located in the hotel near the Hi-Limit Section.

California games[edit]

Commerce also offers Pan, No Bust Blackjack, 3 Card Poker, Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud Poker, 21st Century Baccarat, EZ Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Super Pan Nine and 13 Card (Chinese poker).

Games besides poker, such as the ones listed above, are called 'California Games' and have been modified to conform to California state gambling laws. The primary difference between California Games and normal casino table games is that the player does not play against the house but rather plays against a third party provider that banks the games. California law requires that all non-poker games at the Commerce Casino or any California card room are player-banked, meaning players play only against one another, and never against the house. Any player that regularly banks the 'player banked games' and does not have a contract with the casino to do so will be barred from the casino. The Commerce serves as a host for these games, providing a venue for their play and benefits indirectly off the gambling revenue through 'rent' payments from the third party provider. The casino also charges a collection to play the game usually 1% of the bet wagered (rounded up to the nearest dollar) for hosting these games.[9]

Off-Track Betting[edit]

The Racebook at Commerce Casino opened in July 2009, featuring mini satellite wagering from California and Eastern U.S. race tracks. There is no admission fee.

Popular culture[edit]

  • In 'So Close, Yet So Far', the second episode of the AMC television series, Fear the Walking Dead, an aerial nighttime shot of Los Angeles in the early stages of the zombie apocalypse shows the casino and hotel tower engulfed in flames next to a gridlocked Santa Ana Freeway.
  • A comedy sketch promoting the casino was featured in First Night 2013 with Jamie Kennedy, a New Year's Eve television special hosted by comedian and television producer Jamie Kennedy.
  • In Twin Peaks the return, the casino was featured as the Silver Mustang.

If you have never been in a California card room then the first experience of the Commerce Casino might just overwhelm you. If there is one word that describes the Commerce that word would be - Huge! Is the Commerce bigger than, say Foxwoods? No. Bigger than MGM Grand? No. However, this is a card room not a full fledged Vegas-style casino. There are no slot machines, no Keno room, and no Craps pit at the Commerce. There are, however, 160 poker tables, including over 100 spread out in the 'Big Room.' Imagine walking into typical tournament room of 100+ tables; well wait just how many tournament rooms can actually seat 1,000+ players for a tournament? The answer is one, the Amazon room at the Rio when it is set-up for the World Series of Poker. This room at the Commerce is 'permanent' and is not a just a tournament room; cash games are often being spread, especially on weekends.

On a recent Tuesday evening, I took a walk around the outside rim of the big room at the Commerce and pasted by the five different brush boards to check out the games. The room is so big that different games are assigned to different areas and each has its own sign-up board and floor staff. Around 7 o'clock this particular Tuesday evening the following games were up and running in the 'Big Room' at the Commerce.

$3/$6 and $4/$8 Omaha 8 or better

$4/$8 Stud, $1/$2 Stud and $2/$4 Stud

$1/$2 Hold'em, $2/$4 Hold'em, $3/$6 and $4/$8 Hold'em, $9/$18 and $20/$40 Hold'em

$2/$3 NLHE $100 buy-in and $3/$5 NLHE $200 buy-in plus several $40 buy-in NLHE tables.

There were also interest lists for Razz and Pineapple but I was told these games generally only go on the weekends. For the games that were being spread, there were at least dozen $4/$8 Hold'em tables in action and any game with a full waiting list got a new table opened.

But wait, that's not all because this is the 'Low Limit' room at the Commerce. A short walk past the Pai Gow tables will take you to the 40+ tables in the 'High Limit' poker room of the Commerce Casino. Here you will find Chinese Poker at $100 or $200 a point; the 'regular' $400/$800 Hold'em game and Stud being spread at $200/$400. There are also combo games of Hold'em and Stud at both $100/$200 and $200/$400; lowball starts at $30/$60. Of course, any game at any limit can be requested and I am told several 'weekly' games convene on a regular basis at table stakes.

You often hear that the top three gambling sites in the USA are Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Tunica, Mississippi. That may be true if you are talking about casino floor square footage but when you talk only about poker, the list is quite different. Las Vegas remains the leader in terms of number of poker rooms and number of tables. The Commerce casino alone, however, has more tables in just one building than all of the Tunica poker rooms combined and just the three larger casinos in the LA basin (Commerce, Hollywood Park & The Bicycle) have more tables (405) than all of Atlantic City (303).

Commerce Casino Poker Tournament

Los Angeles is the largest metropolitan area in the world that has legal 'brick & mortar' casinos or card rooms dealing poker. I will have reviews of many other poker rooms in greater LA in the near future but it goes without saying that the Queen of Poker in Los Angeles right now is the Commerce Casino.
