Reports are surfacing on vpFREE that Harrah's is eliminating all offers except for free rooms to video poker players. I had this (apparently stupid) idea to head over to Windsor to earn "Diamond In A Day" on their 99.95% PickEm in order to finally get BJT invites. This news, if it turns out to be true, certainly sinks that idea. This sux. I can't get an invitation to the grand opening of the basement of an outhouse. The Windsor DIAD PickEm idea was the best angle I could imagine. Now that's apparently not an option any longer. Couple of months ago, I ran some significant action thru the VP at Orleans, and mentioned to my host that I'd like BJT invites. Never heard a peep out of them. GEEZ. Lost my azz on their substandard VP and got stiffed. On a related note, I have a pretty good idea of one primary reason why BJT's will never approach the popularity of HoldEm tournaments. If you want to play in a poker tournament, show up with cash in hand and buy in. In most BJT's, if you want to play, you can't unless you're a member of the Secret Handshake Good Ol' Boys Society - which is earned by a Don't Ask / Won't Tell policy of required play at games and action levels that will not be revealed beforehand ("gamble what you want and we'll let you know afterwards if we'll allow you in the BJT"). :flame: OK, bitching session is over.
