steamboatin, i am considering coming down for the circuit event at the end of October, but havent seen and event listing yet, do you know if one is out yet? i hail from the motor city and this is the closest tourney with multiple events and would like to try my hand at. they have been doing some heartland poker events at the majestic in gary,indiana, but it is just one event, and sattelites to the one event. i would like to buy into a couple of events and try some satellites to the bigger ones. dont get to many opportunities up here in detroit. 3 casinos and none are smart enough to line up a wpt or other major event. thanks...

Full schedule hasn't been finalized yet, but steamboatin's dates are accurate

These two are fine. I would recommend the Hampton over the Holiday Inn:


Also make sure to take extra special care of the dealer named Tom. [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Thank you VERY MUCH! This is exactly the kind of information I am interested in.
That's right... ending a sentence with a preposition is A-O-K in my book.)

Tom "The Pimp"? He likes high quality cigars but gratuities large enough to purchase said high quality cigars are also acceptable.

NOTE: This is an inside joke and not intended to ignite a tipping flame war.

I probably won't make it Saturday. Looks like I am out of town all day. If I don't get to go out of town, I'll show up at Caesar's in the late afternoon or early evening.

Yes, just ask to see the back of my badge and I'll know you came from this thread. Steamboatin knows the power of a fine cigar as a gratuity. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

snuffdip, how can you be found?

I'll be there Saturday. Sorry Steamboatin might not make it, but I'd like to meet at least one other 2+2er who I didn't know before I joined.

My description is earlier in the thread [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Snuffdip, What the Hell? Day off? You get to sit all day and hang out with cool guys like me, why wouldn't you want to work 24/7?

PS. You missed out on a small CAO Braizlia.

Javenewt was there and we had a nice chat. It was great to meet you.

I got back early from the antique engine show so I made a cameo apperrance, just long enough to make a runner runner straight flush. Whoo Hoo, I run good!

edited because I can't spell.

I wouldn't say this is a bad area of town. This really isn't near a residential area. The stadium is on one side, and some restaurants surround it. That said, if you're looking to spend some time at Caesars it really makes a lot more sense to cut your daily commute in half by staying in New Albany.

Steamboatin, sent you a PM. It was great to meet you, too. I was up a few hundred, but not as much as Steamboatin, and it took me a lot longer [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Stayed at the Motel 6 in Georgetown. What can I say, it's a Motel 6. However, the manager (Bonnie?) was very nice. Worth saving more than $100 for the 20-minute drive. (Saved about $50 compared to staying in New Albany for an extra 8 minutes.)

The back route during the day was really pretty -- well, the way I went was. I did get lost, but managed to find my way. Missed the first turn because of a freak rainstorm. I could barely see the road in front of me. Took main roads at night, and it was fine.

Didn't make it to the gyro place, but I have that to look forward to on the next trip.

Hope to meet you next time, Tom.
