Poker in Busan?
Printer-friendly version

Hey all, I'm simply wondering whether Busan has any place to play Poker (preferably Hold 'em), if there are any Poker tournaments held at all, and/or if there are regular Poker games held, either just casual ones or more "official" ones.

Thanks for the info!

Re: Poker in Busan?

Gambling is illegal in Korea so posting questions about where people gamble isn't a good idea...well the question is fine but the answer might not be. Poker tounraments have been busted in the past so be cautious. However, I have heard of Hold 'em in one of the 2 casinos in Busan. Check with them for legal poker. Otherwise, ask around.

If you hold a non korean passport   you may go to Lotte and Paradise Casonios .

If you hold Korean passport you may go to Kwangdo Casino .

      Like other person said  gambling is illegal in Korea like most countires .

It is strange non koreans  can gamble their live savings away but Koreans can not enter the Lotte and Paradise casions .

Hey, I recently arrived in Busan and I'm also looking to play some Hold 'em here and then. If somebody with info on any games held from time to time could PM me, that would be awesome.

Cheers
