@mkiefer009 I've got 4 free nights to use there as a TR Diamond member. What were costs like at the resorts or getting to/from the airport? How old are your kiddos as om wondering if my then 5 year old will be able to go on a lot of the slides or if he will be too young. I've heard the waterpark is crazy busy during the day due to cruise ships. Any truth to that?

The video from Neemes vlog made it look amazing so I hate not using the nights, but I don't want to get drilled with crazy resort food prices. Shame you guys didn't fair better, but being able to play in that tournament is a once in a lifetime experience and would be amazing! Congrats on vlog win. Did you play any cash games or other tournaments while you were there?

Well getting to and from the airport was covered by pokerstars, but I heard it's like $45 or so. It is probably the most expensive place I've been, but if you're getting your room covered that would make it worth it. We probably spent like $800 on food for the week, 5 of us, it is pricey. There are kids stuff to do, if you're over 48 inches you can ride everything. I didn't play any poker other than the tournament, I was spending time with family after that. I wish I would have had a chance.

Were you the one who has a YouTube channel? I lost the feed I promised to watch.

I was introduced to Andrew's vlog when i first joined this site and was lerking. Let me tell you I have been unable to stop cycling through his videos. They are easy to follow and as in depth as they need to be. Its amazing what one guy can do with a camera and the knowledge to back up the plays. He isn't just some guy who pretends to play or know what he is talking about, he just tells it as it is.

I know, right!?!? If you look for it, I brought it up in the comments...and some douche nugget thinks I'm the only one that noticed...I'd love for some of the PCF fam to chime in with some support and maybe get Andrew's attention to use his influence to have the card room get that issue fixed.

Brad Owen latest vlog with more of the Texas Card House relabeled claysmiths...

@Gear how easy would it really be to create a Texas Card House copycat label? They should not be playing 5/5 with such a chip security problem.

Maybe @ABC Gifts and Awards or @David Spragg could reach out to the card house and bring their issue to light and possibly sell them a new primary rack of cash game chips.

Holy crap, didn’t make the MKeifer connection, that’s awesome! Too bad neither of you two min chased, woulda been a nice little payday!

I’m stoked to make my first Neeme/Owen Meetup Game at Graton Casino this weekend, should be fun, if a little bigger than my normal games.
That's awesome man, good luck to you! Should be a fun time, get pics for the pcf family!

Made the MUG today for a few hours, ran up a little stack in $1/3 before because I’m not rolled/used to playing $3/5. Started at Andrew’s table, he’s really nice, but actually pretty reserved while playing, nothing super eventful, but racked up a decent little win.

Congrats on the win and that’s super cool that you got to play a table with neeme. I’d love to be able to get to one of his meet up games one day.

Awesome thanks for sharing, I got to hang with him in the Bahamas. He is a genuine guy, I think that's one of the main reasons for his success.
