Looking for something a little more challenging than your regular poker nights in the kitchen? Or are you lacking poker-playing friends? Don’t worry because we’ve got your back. There’s a thriving poker community here in Santa Clarita and here’s how you can find yourself a game for the weekend.

Just off Rye Canyon,you’ll find SCV Poker League.. . They hold regular games and guarantee at least three games each night they are open. They offer a loyalty points system which sees players rewarded if they play three weeks in a row which is a great incentive to go back. Regular players have mentioned how clean and well-run the place is which is possibly why it’s considered by many to be one of the best places for a game of poker.

The Poker Club – SCV is a group of avid players that decided to host their own games. Due to its growth in popularity, seats are reserved in advance at one of the three nine-player tables. If you don’t show up on time, your seat is up for grabs. These guys are really serious about their poker, and so they run a tight ship which means you get to play,safe in the knowledge that the game is being run right. Their championship game was last month but check out their website for further details on upcoming nights.

If you’re up for a real challenge, then why not sign up for next year’s Real Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament to be held in the Ballroom of Robinson Ranch Golf Course on February 24th. With professional dealers at each table and some great prizes on offer, this could be a great chance to pit your wits against Santa Clarita and even LA’s best poker players. Think you’ve got what it takes? Then get yourself a ticket , and you could walk away with a Gold Kruggerand for your troubles.

Now there are many more private game nights run by poker lovers, but these are of course invitation only. However, the SCV Poker League and the Poker Club – SCV are a great place to start. At the tables, you’ll meet up with likemindedsouls, and once the table has folded, you can have a drink and pick their brains for more local games.

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous and don’t mind driving, then there are several meetups in Van Nuys, Simi Valley, Northridge, and Woodland Hills. For a full listing of games in the area check out Meetups Santa Clarita page .

Alternatively, you could take a leaf out of the current World Series of Poker winner Scott Blumstein who learned the game through online poker tournaments before becoming the name that is on every poker player’s lips right now. He played online for quite some time before becoming confident enough to hit the tables for real and hasn’t looked back since. A college graduate with a degree in accounting, this was his first time at the WSOP event and safe to say it turned out pretty well for him.

While we have yet to produce a world champ poker player here in Santa Clarita Valley, the story of the WSOP champ, Scott Blumstein should be inspiration enough for even the most average of Santa Clarita players. Taking home more than $8 million from one tournament is the stuff of dreams. Get practicing folks; it could be you!
