The Metro Card Club is the biggest poker room in the Philippines with a 800 sq.m facility , 30 poker tables, a bar and a billiards area. Located at the heart of the Metropolis and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the room is full of players any time of the night or day.
Metro Card Club has been operating since 2007 and can be considered one of the pioneers in the industry. It boasts being the very first brick & mortar poker room in the country. Catering more to the local poker community, the room fondly called “The Metro” is famous for its value for money, low buy-in tournaments and its micro limit cash game tables. They also hold the claim of being home to the Filipino Poker Tour, which help boost the popularity of the game at its early stages in the country.
Most of the current professional poker players now seen at international circuits started their careers at The Metro. And the club continues to endeavor molding and training future poker players with its weekly tournaments and major tournament season.
