    I do not think you can have 2 mulligans. I would be surprised if it is allowed but may be an idea for casinos to think about for the future. They can sell mulligans unlimited.

    In the past you use or lose the Mulligan. They did not carry forward.

    Thank you for the replies. I made the mistake of posting this topic under this particular tournament. I haven't used this site a lot. I meant my question as a general inquiry, not for this particular tournament. Are you saying this is true in all tournaments? Should I repost this as a new topic on the general boards? Thanks again!

    I believe the mulligan option started at the old Las Vegas Hilton several years ago. The only other venue that I've seen offer it is the Nugget. There may be others that I'm unaware of but my guess is that you can't carry one forward anyplace and I'm very sure you will be quite disadvantaged without having one at any venue.

    I have never heard of a mulligan being carried forward, and certainly haven't heard of being able to use two in a single round.

    Can't speak to who started the concept of a mulligan but I do know that the Kewadin houses in Michigan gave you one in every round for a long time. They got rid of it because the locals were complaining that the traveling BJT assassins were using them well while they (the locals) would tend to spend them unwisely.

    When the West Gate (old hilton) did BJ tournaments, the mulligan was carried over until the semi-final if not used.

    Kewadin had a different name for it and I can't remember what it was. It definitely served the same purpose. I'm very sure that Les Thacker started the mulligan concept at the old LV Hilton.
    Nugget has apparently taken it a step farther by charging for "re-buy" mulligans. It's all about the revenue, fellas.
