Moving to be closer to Live Poker

Just curious if anyone else has made a similar decision and whether or not they have advice or regrets.

I'm leaving my job in May. So I'm currently on the hunt for a new job. A large part of me wants to find a job near a cardroom so I can play live poker regularly. Currently, it's a 2+ hour drive to the closest poker room.

I'm more or less trying to stay on the East Coast. Family and friends are all here, so CA and NV aren't really under consideration. But Philly, CT, Maryland are at the top of the list.

Any thoughts welcome. Thanks.

    I have the same problem. Im an hour an a half from the nearest casino and the expenses involved impact my bottom line and even mental game pretty severely at times.

    The only solution I can find to this is underground games, but I have no clue how to discover/ get invited to private tables.

    Its either that or move, which I'm seriously considering as well.

    I am partial to the MGM National Harbor right outside D.C., in Maryland. I live in Prince George's County, Maryland, about 5.5 miles from the casino, right up the Beltway and also right outside a Metro stop (Branch Avenue on green line if you want to google). My condo is amazingly cheap (and spacious) compared to D.C. prices and there are both rent/buy options. 15 minutes on train to Downtown. 20 min drive to airport.

    There's also Maryland Live about 30 mins from me but I don't like the room as much; I get treated much better at MGM but I go there much more often which is probably the reason why haha.

    If you'd like more info, feel free to shoot me a message!

    I am also in a similar predicament. Philly is my #1 choice at this point. Close proximity to Borgata, Parx, and eventually Philly Live is pretty legit
