First meetup ever I’ve been to in all my time on PCF and it was absolute blast, despite just being there for the tournament. Big thanks to @Irish for opening up his doors to us. It was great getting to know the members and putting a name to the face. You definitely want @Ben8257 at your table, he was a hoot to play and joke around with. Next Battle Royale I will definitely make more time for multiple days of degen.

Likewise brother!! I get a bit loud and obnoxious to some... but always trying to have a good time. Sucks you caught a rough hand so early on... would have been cool to have chatted a bit! Always next time!

What an awesome weekend it was! Meeting so many people that Brie and I have become friends with since joining the forum!

@Irish my brother... you nailed it bro!! All the planning, all the effort and it flies by way too damn fast!! I absolutely love that we got a chance to sit outside, smoke a cigar and reflect on it all! Seriously I hope it was everything and more than you had hoped it would be! If you went hungry at this event it was your own damn fault!! Haha

@72o had the best damn time with you brother!! Not sure if they will let us at another meet up but it was awesome that we basically have the same goofball mentality, seriously the most fun I have ever had sitting next to another player! It was an honor brother and can't wait to do it again!

Came home with a whole truck load of freebies from @MegaTon44 because Dan is awesome and wouldn't take any money. Was awesome spending some time with you off the tables hanging out and talking brother, it has been far too long with all of this covid stuff. I'm sure we will get back into the normal swing soon and you know Brie and I will make the trip anytime, and always a pleasure @Klobberer and @p5woody see you and the rest of the PA crew soon!!

Finally meeting @juankay20 , @Nuhockey , @Phish1321 , @JMC9389 , @Senzrock , @moechar in person after damn near daily interactions for what seems like forever, thank you all for a great time, I knew that's how it would go!!

@CantSpellPoker , @Blaster , @randy2310 , @TheAlchemist (I fear hates me! Lol, I may have been a bit too loud for some) @PlayerADK , @sgago84 and @theewpice have spoken with many of you a few times and it was awesome meeting you all!!

@LordEpyon we never really got a chance to talk sir and I apologize for that! Always next time Sir!!

Again fantastic meet up and thank you all for having us!

PS I still suck at taking photos!

Maybe I will do better in Vegas... but doubtful!!

Lastly again to my amazing better half @FordPickup92 !! I can't imagine living this journey without you love! What amazing memories we are making together. I probably would have never stepped out of the house and my comfort zone without you! Ut is amazing to think of the future experiences together!! I Love you Brie!!

Looking forward to seeing our new - Jersey family again soon!

Well, after dealing with some other forum drama, finally have a chance to do a little weekend review!

Firstly - many thanks to @Irish for welcoming us all to his home and being such a fantastic host! Your execution was perfect and we had a fantastic time! Your chips are amazing, and you were super cool about letting so many folks felt their guest sets! We would love to attend next year!

@MegaTon44 always a pleasure catching up with you, great to see you out and about, really enjoyed chatting! Many thanks for everything, and really looking forward to the next mini meet at your place!
@Klobberer great getting some table time with you, still looking fit for an old man (JK) and had quite a few laughs through all the chatter. I'll remember to keep a few stfu chips on hand just in case ;)
@p5woody was great to see you again! Always enjoy chatting with you and having such a knowledgable designer in the room makes for awesome conversations! Hope to see you again soon at Dan's!
@Phish1321 was great meeting you! We had a nice long chat upon our arrival, and I enjoyed getting to know your table play a little bit as well! Thank you for the awesome PCA chips!
@moechar great to finally meet you bro! Thanks for the WSOP chip, I LOVE it!!! I don't ever want to hear "I suck at tourneys" again!! Haha
@Senzrock glad you enjoyed the mixed games lol had a blast at the table with ya, even if your trip 9s out kicked my trip 9s :vomit:
@72o Al, you're a trip dude. Really enjoyed getting to know you this weekend! Thank you sooo much for the awesome awesome gifts!!!! :love: I will have my pinching fingers on point for next year!
@juankay20 was amazing to finally put a face to the name my friend! Can't thank you enough for everything you've helped us with, and being a great friend along the way! Major props sticking it out in the mixed games, those quads paid off (poophead :LOL: :laugh:) hoping to see you again next year!!!
@JMC9389 great to finally put a face to the name! Really glad to hear things are looking up for you! I do hope we get a little more time on the felt next go round, and I'll try to give more warning when the TRKs are coming out lol
@sgago84 @Blaster wonderful meeting you both, thank you for the sample and cut card, as well as the delicious rum and interesting conversations throughout the evening!
@randy2310 the hair haha glad you made it out, and I'm glad you and Ben had a good time at the table! Hope to see you again next year (with a few more posts in the books!)
@PlayerADK my man, thank you for the super awesome gifts. You played your heart out at the cash table and jumped right in. Was awesome to see, and you have such an infectious smile it was awesome being at the same table. I hope you can join us next year!
@Nuhockey pleasure meeting you finally! Tough cookie at the table too! Keep raking those DBs in man, you have a serious collection!
@CantSpellPoker we didn't get a whole lot of table time but Ben has shed a little light on the fun y'all had and I think that is super awesome! Would love to see ya again next time and get a little more felt time together (hopefully we can stick it in Al next time :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:)
@TheAlchemist thank you for sharing your set with us, very cool! Although I think the stache might have it out kicked LOL congrats on the tourney win! (pretty sure I heard first place)
@theewpice many thanks for dealing us out the first night, and I'm really glad I know how to pronounce your username now haha great to meet you and hope to see you again next year!
@SixSpeedFury, @LordEpyon we spoke briefly but as things were progressing towards the tournament it was a bit hectic, it was nice to meet you both and we will have to chat a little more next time when it's not so busy!

All in all wonderful weekend in the books! Everyone was awesome, and it was quite the long (yet too short) weekend of drinks, cigars and late night poker!! Filled with many good times and good memories, cheers to all!!

Benji - I know poker sucks sometimes, we can't all have golden horseshoes in our rears. But what you bring to these meetups, chips aside, your kindness and outgoing go lucky personality, it's part of what makes them so memorable and special for everyone, not just me! We all want to rake in amazing pots (or maybe even just one piss ass pot) but we also know these things aren't just about that! It's amazing to see you having a blast at the table, making friends and bringing laughs all around! Looking forward at the great memories to be made and the new faces we will meet, there is nothing more special than making these journeys with you love!!! While the chips have been a great part of this hobby, the bond created and ability to work together has been a blessing!!! I know Vegas is probably going to rob us blind, but I don't care because I'm going with you, and we're going to have fun!!! (And probably be a little exhausted :LOL: :laugh::yawn:)
Kicking butt and final tabling at the meet in the suite is just going to be a bonus!

Oh boy where do I even start.

First PCF meetup ever for me, and it was awesome!! Huge thank you too @Irish for his amazing job hosting and letting a kid like me come to the game, and having some of his awesome cigars and beers. I would love to come back in the future for any meetup games or even random games, jersey ain't too far!

Next shout out to my boy @Senzrock for joining me in our first meetup game together and first time playing live together. This dude has helped me with a ton of stuff on/off forum and it was awesome to take money from him in cash :)

@Phish1321 It was awesome playing with you and thanks a ton for picking such a great cigar for me as I had no idea what I was doing hahaha. And also thanks for those awesome chips you gave me :)

@Nuhockey Thanks a ton for helping run all the games while Matt was busy being an awesome host, playing with you was super fun even though you kept bullying everyone at our tourney table.

@sgago84 Awesome meeting you and playing with you man. Sorry for busting you with K2o, I told ya'll I really don't know what I'm supposed to do in tourneys.

@Klobberer Had a blast bantering with you and chatting at our table. You definitely made the table super lively, and joking back and forth about random bs while duking it out was super fun.

@FordPickup92 we finally met after you being one of my first friends on here and helping me out with a ton of stuff along this crazy journey! It was super fun to play at the same table with you, and I really am bad at tournaments I don't know how many times I have to tell you! I was just lucky to make it to the final table with so many better players than me hahaha. Thanks a ton for the chips you gave me and even aside from that everything you've helped me with on/off forum. Hope we can meet up and play again soon!!!

@PlayerADK Awesome to see someone the same age as me at the game! We didn't play together but it was cool to meet you and hopefully next time we can play at the same table!

@Ben8257 Finally got to meet you too dude!!! Long awaited, we share so many shared interests with our tropical stuff, and it was super cool to be at the final table with you, even while you grilled me hahaha. You're always a blast to be around and make everyone else around happier. Can't wait to play again man!!!

@juankay20 it was awesome to meet you man and you work in the city so me you and Max gotta meet up sometime!! I overheard y’all talking about Filipino restaurants and I need to know the names too!! Too bad we didn’t get to play more holdem, but youre more than welcome to come to any game I’m hosting!

@p5woody It was super cool sitting next to you during the tournament even if it was only a short while before you got moved over. You've been a super great help with giving me opinions on my crazy custom ideas and I'm honored to own a set that you designed! Hope we can play again one day!

@Blaster @randy2310 @LordEpyon @JMC9389 It was an honor getting my motswari's into play with you guys at cash!!! Special shout out to Randy for always being down to straddle/double straddle and make the game even more fun, we need you at our home game. And thank you @JMC9389 for letting me check those H-molds out in person!!!

@TheAlchemist @MegaTon44 didn't get to play with you guys much but it was great to meet you both and congrats on both crushing the tournament and landing 1st and 2nd place. Plz give me tips so next time I can cash.

@SixSpeedFury We only met briefly, but I am super jealous that you got the first to cash glass. So even though you didn't win, congrats on getting an awesome trophy out of it. Hopefully next time you can stick around and we can play some cash games!

Last, but most definitely not least, huge shoutout to @72o , @Irish , @sgago84 and @CantSpellPoker @Phish1321 . Even though this was a poker meetup, hanging out with you guys outside was 100% my favorite part of the night. Was very honored ya'll let a young kid like me hang around and hopefully I didn't talk too much or annoy anyone to a serious extent hahaha. Al and Matt it was super awesome to hear about your careers and lives and it even inspired me to figure some stuff out in my personal life (sorry in advance if I reach out to you guys for advice LOL). It was a great experience learning about all the custom set obstacles and you guys made me realize that having a custom set truly is the holy grail of chipping, and now I feel as though my vision in this hobby is a lot clearer in terms of what I want to do. Al, it was awesome geeking out over random chips with you, joking around chatting and seeing your sick sets. (Sorry that I called you old, but I swear I meant to say you were young, just came out wrong), but I've got to come out to Boston and see those knollwoods on the felt and also bring the Motswaris! We also learned limit mixed games together, and now I want to build a fucking limit set and get all those mixed games cards, thanks a lot @Irish !!! My bank account will not be happy with this. Legend has it that @sgago84 is still farting at this very moment uncontrollably.

Til' next time folks!!! Thanks again to everyone for making me feel at home, I truly had a blast. Apologies if I missed anybody/if my writing skills suck.
