I have been going to playground regularly for several years
Hands down the best place I have ever played poker.
What really sets this place apart for me is the quality of the game, and the staff is absolutely world class. Management, Dealers and Servers are all on point. Rake is steep but reasonable considering food and drinks are free when playing cash games.
Most of the games are good and players are sociable for the most part. The caliber of the game is stiffer than most places, but I suspect the player base that a room of this quality attracts is the main reason for that.
