The Hustler Casino is one of our favorite poker rooms anywhere.  It's not as big as the Commerce or the Bike, but with 89 total tables it's the 5th biggest in California and one of the largest poker rooms in the world.  It's also one of the best-run rooms anywhere with attentive staff, constant promotions and solid poker action.

The Hustler is located just off the 110 freeway in LA, about a mile or so from the Normandie Casino.  The casino is relatively young by LA standards (it was built in the mid-90s) and management re-invests in the room constantly.  As a result, the tables, chairs, signage and other furnishings are always in great shape.  Even though there are almost 90 tables, the room feels surprising intimate with chadeliers, plush carpet and padded walls.  It's as nice a room as you'll find anywhere.

The mix of poker tables to other table games is about 2 to 1 with anywhere from 25-40 poker tables running at any one time.  Games spread include limit (2/4 thru 25/50), no limit 1/2 thru 5/5), Omaha and stud.  In addition, there is an additional tournament area (The Crystal Room) with another 18-20 tables.  For the degen in you, there are about 20 or so other table games including blackjack, pai gow poker, three card poker et al.

The waitlists are electronic and visible from all areas of the poker room.  Expect waits on peak times of up to an hour for higher limit games.  Most lower limit games have wait times of <20 minutes.

One of the best things about the Hustler is that they promote constantly, returning value to regulars and attracting new customers.  They have jackpots, player cards, high hands, football specials, etc. running 24/7 with plenty of information available on all the various activities.

There's a sushi bar & deli counter on the first floor and a full service restaurant (Larry's bar & Grill) on the second level.  Overall, the food is very good and competively priced.  There's plenty of free parking and valet parking for about $3.
