Honeycomb on the boulevard. It sits on the corner of Locsin and the boulevard. If you go around the side on Locsin you'll see a small Japanese restaurant and then there's another section of Honeycomb. Go past the Japanese restaurant and you'll see a small parking area and a door. I think the game starts around 6pm. Before it starts, the parking area is empty. While it's going, the area will be full of motorcycles. Go in that door and you'll see a couple of tables going.
There's also a walkway which goes further into the building where there's a bar. Don't go in there. There's no poker there.
There's also home games around the city. If you see foreigners in there, you can ask them about other games. Games and locations change all the time because the legality is questionable. Occasionally a game gets shut down because the organizers start feeling heat. Right now the poker scene is quite small. There used to be a lot more options.
The game at Honeycomb is Texas Holdem. Sometimes you get Koreans or tourists who drop a lot of money and you can do quite well. A lot of the locals play loose and aggressive, so you have to be careful. Avoid small tables where you see all locals with small stacks. They just go all-in and buy back in at the minimum. You end up with relatively small wins and their all-ins hit often enough to wear down your stack.

Any game ran by a foreign "owned" (lol) restobar runs the risk of getting busted up if they steal too many of the customers from the "legitimate" games. They will always quickly come to a stop when they become too popular. There will also always be some butthurt foreigner that goes and complains because they feel they were "cheated" during the game as well. The last person you should ever trust in the Philippines is a foreigner customer.

How can I complain when I have never known hunger, thirst or poverty. You can only play the hand your given.
