In this day and age players are more focused on real money poker than in the past and will continue to be that way in the foreseeable future. Player revenue isn’t key to a poker room’s future success so those rooms that built their business models around profits from rake and tournament entry fees have a leg up in this market.

The rooms were small and often crowded, so players had to be choosy about which games they played. It wasn’t uncommon for players to wait more than 20 minutes for a seat at one of the Omaha tables.The Potawatomi Pokers closed on January 17, 2016.
