Buffalo and Niagara are two of the most popular destinations for traveling poker players in the state of New York. Residents are within range of Seneca Niagara Casino and Seneca Salamanca Casino. Given the sumptuous leafy surroundings in which these casinos are set, it is unsurprising that regular tournament and cash action is propelled by a dependable band of locals. The casino resorts also attract many nature tourists, who contribute to the poker economy on a consistent basis. Online poker is not allowed in this area, but young poker players are welcomed from the age of 18 upwards by both Seneca venues.
New York City has a fearsome reputation as a conveyor belt of poker talent. In particular, the Mayfair Club developed talents such as poker legends Dan Harrington and Erik Seidel until its closure was forced under the Quality of Life campaign in 2000. In fact, this legislation closed all underground poker rooms in New York City. With a lack of regulated online poker in the area, many New York City poker players make the journey to Turning Stone Casino in Verona. This Heartland Poker Tour and Poker Night in America venue has more than 30 tables to satisfy players starved of action elsewhere.
