    I just noted the May Four Winds tournament as cancelled. They are upgrading computers at that time, monthly tournaments ARE scheduled to resume in June.

    With the death of Ho-Chunk, Kewadin and Meskwaki this is the last regular action I can get based on where I live. :(

    Sad, indeed. These most recent cancellations are the death knell of my BJT career. FourWinds is always on a Tuesday which is the one day of the week I can never make it. The rest are either have tricked up carnival luckbox rules that kill any strategic advantage, or are invitationals which I cannot possibly qualify to play. Dammit, it was so much fun while it lasted.....

    I heard Fire Keepers in Battle Creek May PU some tourneys. I'll report anything I hear on that.

    Add to all of that the indiscriminate Vegas cancellations, which unless you live there take advance planning and hoop jumping adjustments, or just plain ignoring anymore.

    Our Jonny 21 placed 7th tonight at the Four Winds tournament which was a complete sellout for only the 4th time ever. He narrowly missed 1st place on the last hand. Needing a dealer bust for 1st, a dreaded 5 was pulled turning the dealers 15 into a 20. Jonny also turned in a great performance in the semi tonight to make the final table where only 1 of 7 advanced. Great job Jonny!

    Thanks, guys ! Chris, the Four Winds tournament director does run a very nice tournament, as seen by a total sellout crowd on a cold and rainy Tuesday night in February.

    One unusual aspect of this tournament is that hey have eight semi-final tables, so the lowest $$ table winner does not advance to the finals (they get 2% of the pot). They hold things up before the last hand and let everyone know what the different tables have for $$ going into the last hand.

    FYI- I removed the 6/6/17 tournament from the schedule. The normal monthly tournament won't be held the 1st Tuesday, they are trying a bigger tournament on Sunday 6/25/17. Details have been coming very slowly. At this months monthly, Chris ( he is the tournament director) said there would be larger prizes, larger buy in, and one more round than normal. He said to look for details in the next week or two. That was 11 days ago. If anyone hears of more datails, please let us all know.

    I too, would like to know asap, as this one is a strong possibility for me because of the added incentive.

    I tried their face book site, since nothing on the web page yet. But the two times I asked about the June 25th BJ tourney I got a blurb about the site being monitored by administrators for offensive language.
