Poker law in Ohio seemingly (maybe inadvertantly) permits individuals to play the game in private.  This could be interpreted to mean one can play online from the comfort of their own living room, but not in a public place.

Ohio also allows poker in sanctioned rooms, and here they are:

    Hollywood Casino Columbus (Columbus, OH)
    Hollywood Casino Toledo (Toledo, OH)
    JACK Cincinnati Casino (Cincinnati, OH)
    JACK Cleveland Casino (Cleveland, OH)
    Mansfield Gemini Poker Club (Ontario, OH)
    Ruggles Blue (West Chester, OH)
    Shark Tank Poker Club (Columbus, OH)
    The Ruggles Club (Dayton, OH)

Americas Cardroom is one of the few sites that has long served the U.S. market and is currently offering a $6 million guaranteed online tournament with a $1 million first place prize.  Americas Cardroom tends to rank as the 8th largest online poker site in the world.  It also offers a sportsbook and online casino.
