So I have tentative confirmation from my wife, the head of the Windy Crest Gaming Commission, that she will be attending a conference August 20-23, 2020.

Let this serve as a save the date for a trial run, if you will, for Degen in Dallas 2021.

A second option, maybe just beyond walking distance (up to you), less than 3 min Uber - a little cheaper than option #1

It's gonna be Ceramic $20 ya'll :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

Miscellaneous

  1. The event is open to all well established PCF'ers . I won't draw a sand in the line with regards to # of posts or member duration, but this event is for folks active in the chipping community. If you're local and have limited posts, verification will be required. (Great excuse to come to one of my monthly games)
  2. Attendance will be limited to PCF players. I will fill in spots where needed with locals, but they will be 100% verified non-assholes with multiple rebuys.
  3. At least one of my children will be here during the event. She will be happy to run drinks/chips for tips (she's experienced and very social, trust me, not her first rodeo). There is the possibility several other children may be here, so please respect that this is their home.
  4. Sponsorship is welcome, as are donations to the house, but not expected, nor required. Dinner will be included with the main event, and possibly requested for Friday catering if decided. Message me for sponsorship.
  5. Custom Pint or Whisky glasses for this event available for pre-purchase - details will follow

Count me as tentative for an air mattress in a corner. Thought this was 2021, 2020 is fairly full but I’ll try....
Understood! This is the prequel anyway - won't be nearly as good as the first :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

This is badass. Would love to attend. Will see and let you know mid May. Is the Alamo next year happening also or does this event replace it for the year?

Alamo is being replaced by my meetups, unless the San Antonio group decides to make another run at it.

Stayed at Home2 Suites by Hilton Dallas North Park last Aug when I was a guest at Craig’s monthly tournament and cash game. Fairly new, not too far away, reasonably priced. Recommended.

I might be interested in an Airbnb if anyone putting something together.

The close airbnb are pricey, but worth it if you can fill it. Super close, safe, and walking distance for most. I have a spare minivan for those who don't drink (a lot).
