Re: 2+2 party recap?

this was my first time going and i thought it was really well run.
got there at 5:30 w/ a buddy and there was a lounge in the sports book exclusively for 2p2ers (needed a nametag to get in) after like 30 min, food was served (salad, sandwhiches, hot dogs, cookies, chips, veggies) mingling and eating took place, then random games started running. too tired to list them all but my personal favorites were lazy pineapple and no limit blind man's bluff. lots of dealer's choice. MaverickUSC ended up winning the chip stacking competition with a really cool design. hopefully someone puts up a pic.

it was cool to put a face to a username and i'll def be going next year.

Re: 2+2 party recap?

Le sigh.

This all makes me very nostalgic! I was there for the (I think original) 2+2 party in the Nugget (where I drunkenly squeezed Dan Harrington and Ray Zee whilst yelling 'SQUEEEZE' with JJJ9 in limit 08 and beat Ray Zee with the nut straight [angry face]) and the following year at the Hard Rock (where they set up the 'main table' for a 10-25NL game, which was quickly overrun by a bunch of us and turned into some sort of variation of 3-6 limit omaha with a mandatory pre-flop cap/ante). So much fun.

I've missed the last two years now, but will be out there from 20th July for just over a week if anyone is still in town.

I might have to vow not to miss the 2p2 party again!

More pics/TRs please.

Peter

Re: 2+2 party recap?

The party was a blast! I played at a table where the 5 game rotation was 2-7 triple draw, Omaha 8, Stud 8, Razzeugi(?), and Badeucy. Hope that I have last 2 spelled right. I'ld never heard of them before. 4/8 limit with blue, $1, chips.

Kept hearing other tables calling out what they were playing - mostly all weird stuff totally unknown to me. One table announced that they were playing straight stud (they got a round of boos for that).

Everyone certainly seemed to be having a great time, with lots of laughter and friendly jibes going on all over the place.

Kudos to both 2+2 and the Wynn (Donna did an incredibly good job of encouraging and trying to keep up with all the foolishness at the tables) for a party well thrown.

I managed to hold my losses to an acceptable amount, and got a prize for having the second best erection in the place! Ok, chip building contest. Still counts for something, though.

Here are pics of the winner. I do apologize for the poor photo quality, but all I had with me was my cell phone.





And here are pictures of my fine erection, er edifice:





I love how the second photo shows off the gravity defying nature of this construction.

Not sure what the game was called but the 6-card 2-flop holdem was fun. I wish I could've stayed longer, but had fun for the hour I was there.

Re: 2+2 party recap?

Had a great time, we played Holdem/Omaha Hi/Lo with 50% of the cards dealt face up, no mis deals and no calling the floor. Was a great game and a great party.

Thanks 2p2

Re: 2+2 party recap?

I was at the same table as loveantiques. The game started around 6:15 and was still going when i left at 5:30am. It was the first table started, and was one of the last two still running. The other was a pretty sick nl indian game (indian omaha as well).

The table dynamics changed throughout the night (obv) as did my bac. Here are a couple of the chipstack pics I took.

The bridge was super hard to build on the wobbly temp tables. I was planning on making it 3 stories.

yeah, that's what the meet was about. it wasn't about playing random games you never get to play, or having fun with 100 other 2p2'rs, or being served free food/drinks... no, it was about chip stacking.

uh no it was pretty awesome all around. maybe 20 tables or so and 0-1 tower per table otherwise lots of donking mixed games. At our table, that I recall, we played: 2nd best LHE, 5-card O8, double board crazy pineapple, double board O8, O9 (lulz), 7cs8b...

Should have brought out the late, lamented peach chips for stacking imo.
