Most of the poker action in Illinois is centralized in the giant metropolis of Chicago, with a scattering of rooms to be found around the extremities of the state, such as Rock Island and East Peoria. Illinois is a major state in the American tournament-poker network, as illustrated by the presence of WSOP Circuit events. The World Poker Tour Boot Camp also regularly convenes in this state, with the tournament franchise prioritizing Illinois residents for its program of cash game and tournament coaching. Though online poker is not currently legal in the state, Illinois tournament poker players are rarely left craving more action. A packed schedule of weekly, monthly, and annual events is on offer all the time.
