Best Detroit MI Poker Tourneys

You don’t have to go far to find a poker tournament to join in Detroit. There are a lot of great casinos and bars that host daily live games and tournaments in the area. Below are three great options to start with:

Ciccarelli’s 22 Sports Bar

Voted the best spot of its kind in the Metro Detroit area, Ciccarelli’s has everything one could ever want (and so much more) in a sports bar. The venue not only broadcasts the most exciting sporting events, it also serves topnotch food and drinks, invites the hottest live music acts to perform and hosts the best dance parties around.

Ciccarelli’s also has a great function room (called the Hall of Fame Banquet Room) that you could rent for all sorts of parties and events. It features a private bar, a 12-foot HD projection screen, a host of HD TVs all around the room and a VIP gaming lounge that houses a multitude of exciting gaming options like foosball, darts, air hockey and even a shooting gallery.

Now, as for poker, Ciccarelli’s hosts all its live games and tournaments at its Charity Poker Room. The venue offers ½ cash games throughout the day every day – except Thursdays which are reserved for Omaha. The buy-ins for live games typically fall anywhere between $50 and $200. Tournaments, on the other hand, are held twice daily: one at 2 pm and another one at 8:30 pm. The buy-in for these events is $40.

Bonus: SafeClub

While not physically based in Detroit (and not really a casino with a poker room), SafeClub’s real money poker games are accessible by people from practically any state, provided they have access to a computer or smart mobile device.

Yes, SafeClub is a poker website – but it doesn’t really work like a traditional one.

We’re more like Escrow

SafeClub does not charge its players any split pots or percentages. This means that you get to take home every single cent you win.

We’ll never cheat

Because we don’t really work like a traditional poker website or house, we don’t need to cheat. In fact, we even implement several security measures to keep you safe while you play:

  1. Proprietary SafeSight™ Firewall to keep other people (including our team) from taking a peek at your cards, so you can strategize without fear of being discovered before you make your move
  2. Banning of all SafeClub employees from participating in any game
  3. Human-like card-dealing algorithm to ensure that you get truly random cards every single time

We’ll even help YOU win

Aside from free poker tips, we also have several un-lockable poker tools that can help you take your game to a whole new level. Simply put, the more games you play, the more tools you can get access to.
