    Only thing positive I can glean from this information is my chances in the HORSE tournament have gone up. ;)

    Still sucks (people dropping out and my HORSE game). :(

    That sucks, but the crowd that's still coming looks four-star to me.

    The good news for you guys is that I'll donate enough for two people.

    No worries the event will go on and will be spectacular. Right now we have enough for two shorthand tables which is perfect for mix games so it will work out fine as always. Plus side is I get to spend some more time with each person and that's always the best part.

    I am really looking forward to coming. I will admit that I have been away from poker for a little while and I am looking forward to a good session with some good people. I think I played or hosted maybe one or two games in the last 7-8 months so I may be a little rusty. Anyway if anyone is on the fence you should come out!

    Honestly, no. A few casino regulars I know in passing and have gotten phon numbers for games. There is only one game running in the Memphis area it seems. I might check it out this summer but as they play on weeknights only I won't go during the school year. Downside is they rake. I know of another in AR, but that's as far as the casino. Although they play Big O exclusively.

    Yeah, rake-free home games seem to be the exception, even in Chicagoland, where I've found a few home games outside the Meet-Up group that use a dealer (often from Charity or Horseshoe) and take a drop up to $5. Consequently, they go in spurts, as the gambly players wind up going broke (especially an issue when the games are always big bet) and the games dry up.

    The games here use the dealers from Tunica so that part sounds similar. Also a $5 drop which is disgusting as the casinos drop 5 here. At that rate I'd rather drive and play at the casino.

    Meet up groups are non existent here as well which doesn't help. My wife joined a moms group on meetup started by someone who moved here a few months before we did. Every member 30+ are all transplants within the last year. I tried to start a Memphis home poker meetup. 5 members in 7 months. Sad :/

    I land around 4pm Wednesday (Memphis time), and am getting a rental car. Please let me know if you get in around that time and need a ride. We will likely go to Bill's first, to pick up any other stragglers who need a ride, and then head to the casino. Tunica is about an hour away. I plan to stay at the casino Wednesday night, if someone wants to chop a room (i.e., unless Bill gets a ton of casino comps for being a degenerate regular). Hehe

    Me and my brother get in at 6:40. Trying to see if we can get a ride to Tunica. If so I will get a room there and cancel my room in Memphis. If we are getting in too late for a ride to Tunica we will just stay in Memphis and get ready for the Thursday games.

    I've got you guys covered. I'll hang out a little bit and we can head to Tunica together. Any other takers? I've got perks to grab a big rental car, so we may be able to accommodate 1-2 more passengers + gear. If our car is relatively full, we'll skip Bill's and go directly there.

    Also are you sure. That is a long time to wait! If it is okay then I guess the least I could do is buy you dinner.

    Marsha gets in at 5:30pm, so it's just a little wait. With 4 of us, we will just head out after you guys land. Gives us an excuse to play a little OFCP! (y) :thumbsup: The Horseshoe is 45min from the airport.

    Reservation changed and now deciding on which Tunica Casino to book! @Payback are you planning on staying at the Horseshoe? @abby99 and @inca911 I am looking forward to seeing you both! T-minus 21 days and counting!

    David I'm going to drive back that evening since I've got some people at the house.

    I just started getting June offers for Tunica. No rooms yet, but those are usually end of the month. The Gold Strike, Horseshoe Tunica and Horseshoe Roadhouse are all walking distance.

    I'm still trying to get a count for Tunica Wednesday so we can work out transportation for those that want to go and don't have cars.

    @Schmendr1ck - arrives afternoon w/car
    @inca911 - arrives @4 w/car
    @David O and @MicroCHiPs arrive at 640 w/o car
    @abby99 - are you going to Tunica? Arrival is 530 w/o car. Since I'm heading back you can ride with me home, no problem if you are going.
    @TheBigTater any change in status for Wednesday?

    Just spoke with @Breich and he is out for Tunica.

    I'm out for Wednesday night, I won't know when I can get out of the office until the last minute that day so I'm just going to plan on skipping the Tunica trip and drive up Thursday morning.

    Could still be up early enough Thursday morning if ya'll are going to do breakfast somewhere (after the warmup) that morning.

    I wasn't planning to go, but I'm having a hard time saying no. Let's settle on "probably."

    I don’t get in until 3:12. Chop a ride if you want to hang around until I get in.

    My flight out is 3:44 pm Sunday.

    Forrest is picking me up on Thursday. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't mind waiting a few more minutes to give you a ride too.

    My flight departs at 11:15 on Sunday.

    Alright. Then you can plan to ride back with me.

    Here's my thought at this point.
    @inca911 Are you able to get @abby99 @David O and @MicroCHiPs with luggage? If so then, I think the plan below should work:

    @Schmendr1ck and I can head down to Tunica when his flight gets in**

    The Inca shuttle will depart when David/Micro's flights come in to Tunica. We can do dinner when you arrive. Near the poker room there is the buffer, a burger bar that's solid, Chinese place, or Ruth Chris. I don't care where we go, you all can decide.

    Schm/Inca/David/Micro are spending the night in Tunica. I just got comped rooms for Vegas that week, but no word on Tunica :mad:

    Then when were are ready to go I'll drive Abby back to my house where she is staying. @Breich arrives later Wednesday night and will be ubering to my house, or if timing works out I could pick him up on the way back from Tunica.

    **Schmendr1ck, if your able to hitch a ride with Inca coming back to my place you might be able to wait till Thursday to rent a car. I can give you a ride down and save you one day's rental + 100mi in gas.

    I won't commit to anything as I might be finishing getting ready with stuff, but there will be some people interested if I know this crew.

    Excellent!

    All of the above sounds good to me.

    I'll probably keep the rental car on Wednesday to avoid sitting in the airport for 6 hours.
