Argosy Casino, Lawrenceburg, In Screwed out of my seat, O/8
 
Somehow after driving two hours, waiting and hour and a half for them to finally start the game, I discovered I didn't have a seat. I had been rolled over on a waiting list for a game that wasn't running.

I am not 100% sure how it happened but they will never do that to me again. I am no longer going to make the four hour round trip to play 0/8 at Argosy on Wednesday.

What was the reason they gave you, for rolling you over on the list?

I don't see how you can be rolled on a game that hasn't started. If you are there when they call you you get a seat, if you aren't there you should be erased.

Not tipping enough cigars up there?

I gave Terry, one of the floormen a really nice cigar a few weeks ago. I don't think he was there last night. At the moment, I wouldn't pee on them if they were on fire.

Apparently, I was left on the list as a call in and you can only be on the list as a call in for one hour. Even though I checked in and got a food comp, I wasn't officially there so they put me at the bottom of the list. The game always starts around 5 PM. They didn't start it until after 6 so my time expired. Foolish me, I should have realized, I wasn't officially there.

I am officially not there on a Wednesday evening ever again, so we won't have to worry about this ever happening again.

Paper list or electronic? I got dropped off of a paper waitlist once when the new floor/brush transferred the last shift's list to a new page since one of the game columns was full. When the game started I went over to sit down, no seat. The old list is gone. The guy I signed up with is gone. This is why I prefer electronic lists. At least then I can monitor the list and make sure I'm where I should be.

I got the impression, he wouldn't have known the difference. I can't remember what I gave him, something middle of the road, I'm sure. I give snuffdip good cigars because he knows the difference. Its a sin to give a really good cigar to someone that doesn't smoke or doesn't smoke enough to appreciate what they have.

PS. I smoked an Anejo Shark and almost had an orgasm. For the people that need to Google, that is a Fuente Anejo #77, commonly called the shark, but I don't know why, it didn't bite at all.

That xikar cutter is the bomb also. Good luck finding a shark, they are pretty rare but worth the effort.

QFMFT. Am I the only one who keeps lesser quality cheaper cigars on hand for gifting?

No, if I give someone a cigar, I try to give them one equal to their level of experience or personal taste, if I know.

Hey, steamboatin', I used to smoke cigars when I worked for a cigar magazine -- even rolled my own a few times -- but it's been years.

Sorry about the Argosy. Still haven't made it to a casino around here except Caesars. Guess I don't have much reason to try another.

I don't give them crap, I just don't give them a 7 x 52 I know they're going to crush out halfway through that goes for $7/stick at retail, eh?

It's an electronic list. If you are a call-in, the time that you called in next to your name ( I think). I also think your name might be a different color. I don't know if OP got a pager, although I suppose they might not reach to the buffet. I hope he enjoyed the crab legs.

When I check in at a place which allows call-ins, I make sure that I see the status of my name change on the board before I go off.

I went to the Chart Room for a NY Strip Sandwich, got it to go and sat in the poker room while I was eating.

You sat in the poker room and didn't look longingly at your name on the board? (Or at least to check out if any of your prospective opponents are already sitting at other tables?)

Same. Oliva Serie G is always a good smoke to gift.
