Next week while Junell and Fro and a lot of the readers of this blog are in Las Vegas playing for the big money and celebrating the end of Junell's bachelor life, Ca-nonymous-nico and I will ourselves in New Orleans for another, somewhat tamer I would expect, bachelor party. When we are not wandering the streets or eating like gluttons, we do indeed plan on playing poker at Harrah's. Problem is, I'm having trouble finding an online listing of their weekly tournaments. If they have something during the day on Friday (or even possibly on Thursday night), Chris and I might choose to go a little early and play before the other guys show up.

Aside from the horrible way that management lets the regulars there abuse the "see the hand" rule, I certainly enjoy playing in that room. Even if there is no tournament, I think a little 10-20 and NL holdem might be just the trick for my sad lack of casino poker over the past 6 months or so.

(Looking back - I got one night in at Foxwoods in December and before that was a Lake Charles trip in July - egad!)

As an aside - Someone was telling me also that they have relaxed the maximum buyin rule for the no limit game and that he sat down in a game recently against players who on average had $10,000 apiece and who quickly ran him out with huge over-the-top raises... so much so that he decided to go back to the limit games rather than risk his entire stack on one hand. If that's true, I think it's terrible and is a bit indicative of the poker rooms beginning to kill their golden-egg laying geese. But I don't know if I necessarily got the whole story from this guy.

So - If anyone has played there over past couple of months and would care to share, I would love a little feedback as to the tournament schedule and the general mood and rules of the place and if anything has changed since I was there last May. I am especially interested in the tournament schedule if you have any idea where it may be posted on the web these days or whether you know if they have anything scheduled for Thursday evenings or during the day on Fridays.

Jmac, please elaborate on the "see the hand" rule you referenced in your post for those of us who are ininformed, but interested. Please don't make fun of me for being uninformed as I expect you will (if you do make fun of me, please still explain)

Oh geez, I hope it's not that bad. I have never made fun of anyone for being uninformed - all of the comments controversy has come (at least as far as I am concerned) from the folks who have in the past hit and run with anonymous comments that don't contribute anything except name calling or criticism. A question like this has nothing to do with any of that.

Give me a few minutes and I'll come up with an example. Althought it doesn't seem like it, I do have to work for a couple of hours each day and this is one of those. :(

Sorry I had to delete all of those, because they were funny. But only I get to see the little trashcan icon when I click on the comments, and all it takes is one click to throw you boys back under the bus.
