Poker

The Commerce Casino offers a wide variety of limit, pot limit and no limit poker games, including:

The casino spreads more Texas Hold'em games than any other casino in the world.[citation needed] Commerce spreads hold'em games as low as 1-2 and 2-4. 3-6, 4-8 & 6-12 exist on the main floor, with 8-16 and larger limit games in the Hotel section. No Limit Hold 'em games have buy-ins as low as $40 and go much higher. There is a new $5/10 $500/$1500 spread No Limit Hold'em game which was first created in 2008.

The Casino's bad beat jackpots sometimes grow into six figures.[citation needed] Commerce Casino offers a $100,000 Super Jackpot for Hold 'em.

Players can bring members of a home game to the Casino and they will provide game instruction, dealers, a pit boss, cards, chips and poker snacks. The "home" games act as live cash games and are eligible for jackpots.

  • California State Poker Championship - Annual tournament, held in May. Originally held in June, the tournament was moved to avoid conflict with the World Series of Poker.

  • The L.A. Poker Open - Annual tournament held in November.

Restaurants

The Commerce Casino is home to several eating establishments,[6] including:

  • Manhattan Deli Restaurant & Bakery - The signature hotel located in the Main Lobby of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
  • The Arena Sports Bar & Grill - Offers a variety of International cuisine with entertainment, live sporting events and karaoke on various nights. Located in the hotel near the Hi-Limit Section.
  • The Commerce Cafe - Near the Main Poker Room offering Traditional American cuisine, pastries and a full line of Starbucks hot and iced coffees.

California games

Commerce also offers Pan, No Bust Blackjack, 3 Card Poker, Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud Poker, 21st Century Baccarat, EZ Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Super Pan Nine and 13 Card (Chinese poker).

Games besides poker, such as the ones listed above, are called "California Games" and have been modified to conform to California state gambling laws. The primary difference between California Games and normal casino table games is that the player does not play against the house. All non-poker games at the Commerce Casino are player-banked, meaning players play only against one another, and never against the house. The Commerce serves as a host for these games, providing a venue for their play.[7]

Off-Track Betting

The Racebook at Commerce Casino opened in July 2009, featuring mini satellite wagering from California and Eastern U.S. race tracks. There is no admission fee.
