I wanted to let everybody know the feedback that I got from the room owners and the regulars. To a man it was fantastic. Dominic, Joey, and Armen (the owners) are thrilled that they agreed to host our tournament. They all commented what a fantastic bunch of members we have and more than a few have expressed interest in joining our group via the site. One guy who is a hard core gambler said to me yesterday “They were all such good guys. It’s the first time I can remember actually rooting for the out of towners who came to a room I was in”. Several commented on how solid everybody played and on “our” overall love for the game. I am not exaggerating when I say our regulars are not guys to hand out compliments easily lol and they loved that we had our tournament there and are already looking forward to the next one. I let them know that maybe eventually we will settle on some type of geographic rotation and I’m sure we will be back in 4-5 years lol. So, as much as I am so happy that our group liked and had a good time at my local room, I am also very proud to be a member of this group, who can show up anywhere and make such a fine impression. Thanks a ton for that.

Steve made a good point that we need to put up posters in the room a few months ahead of time. It would be cool to get local players to join and become active before we arrive.

The room was great. I like the layout and may open up a room similar near me.

We just missed the Cocaine shipment that was supposed to arrive during the tournament. And the shootings too!

Actually the cocaine arrived but it was decided that we couldn’t tell you for fear of running out. 🤪

I had a very nice time there. The room owners were great. The food was very good. Plenty of room to move around. Look forward to the next time

No more long trips for me. I got home and was completely exhausted.
