And you PCFers think you play mixed games -- hah!

"Hey everyone,
As previously announced, BARGE 2022 will take place at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino from July 25-30, 2022.
Below is the current tentative schedule for BARGE 2022. We wanted to get this out to everyone as soon as possible in case it impacts people's travel plans.

  • we have not determined whether there will be a banquet and/or symposium this year
  • we have not yet determined whether we will have a video poker tournament and/or a second chance poker tournament (format to be determined) on Wednesday afternoon

Is there any registration requirement beforehand? I'll actually be driving cross-country during that timeframe and may stop by Vegas.

I'm not sure until we get the official announcement. Most *arg events do have online registration for a small fee, typically $25 to cover expenses.

What are reindeer cash games? Thinking about coming up Thurs thru Sat.
"Reindeer" doesn't really mean anything unusual. Just a variety of cash tables offering different games.

(I suspect that if your name is Rudolph, they won't let you play...)

If I drink the way I want to there, I would definitely have a red nose. And face. And liver.

From the Barge website:

"Although we do find that many of our members have backgrounds in technology, science and the law, we welcome and encourage people to join regardless of their professional backgrounds or poker accomplishments."

Not sure why that statement is necessary and what the purpose of putting it is. Maybe someone from Technology, Science or the Law could explain it to me

People from technology, science and law are just generally better human beings than people from other professions. But BARGE welcomes them because the world needs ditch diggers too.

Law? As someone who is currently embroiled in a lawsuit with a lawyer who's a real underhanded scumbag, I find that hard to believe. :cool
