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, closed back down for a time due to orders from mayors, but many have now re-opened. Most rooms started with cash games and several are offering tournaments as well.

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