    Hey all,

    I'm going to go play this based on last year's specs and the timing of a few things that I think will lower the expected attendance:

    (1) time change
    (2) price of gas in SoCal
    (3) bad economy
    (4) I can afford to play until 4am as I am not working (see #3) :laugh:

    I doubt this is enough lead time for anyone local to consider a drive out for the 4pm event...but if so, look for me!!

    I was quite right about the attendance:

    168 registered, 6 were men vs 242 registered last year.

    I was knocked out 3 hands after the first break, appx. 105th...oh well.

    But I did well enough at Pai Gow to make back my entry and pre-tournament losses. :laugh: So costs were: T-shirt, 3/4 tank of gas, two fast food meals.

    Anti-discrimination laws rarely but occasionally go too far. Six men registered for the ladies' tournament? Maybe I'm just a throwback but I'd be embarrassed to enter such an event, and that embarrassment would increase logarithmically if I won. Sometimes the legal thing to do doesn't quite meet with the right thing to do.

    Shame on those six guys. Get a life, gentlemen.

    Those 6 guys got bounties on their head by the LADY Poker Room Manager!

    • $15 food voucher on all of them
    • a pair of earrings (from a jeweler who was playing) on all of them
    •'s President had a hat for the ladies who knocked the first 5 out and a 'package' of merch for the lady knocking out the last man
    • $50 Harrah's spa voucher for the lady who knocked out the last man

    If the pot got sweeter after I was out, I don't know about it.

    I also heard rumor that they were also going to relinquish their Harrah's card for playing inthe Ladies' round...but I wasn't paying that much attention as there wasn't a guy on my table.
