Florida was at the forefront of the movement to re-open poker rooms, starting with rooms in western and northern Florida. We reviewed the initial push in an earlier post. Since then, other rooms have opened in other parts of Florida as well. Some of those, particularly in the Miami area, have closed back down due to orders from mayors. Most rooms started with cash games. Some, particularly in the Tampa area, have now started to offer tournaments.

Below is a list of open rooms, along with comments on the current status. Policies and openings can change with short notice. So check the card room’s web site or call before heading out.
