Your best bet mite be the blue line to the loop then get a free shuttle. I dont know the shuttle pick ups but do know they run. Uber will be like 50 to 65 bucks maybe more with a surge from ohare

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

How are the wait lists doing for the cash games with the circuit in town? I was considering going but brovo showed over 100 people on wait lists at 6pm

I was able to put money in deposit at the cage and keep it there fyi, just takes a bit of time for each transaction because a supervisor has to verify amongst other things

Next year, you'll need 25k tier credits earned during 2017 to use the Diamond Lounge for free. Diamonds in the 15-25k range will pay $10/visit. From an email and a TR rep.

Keeping 800 hr a year min buying 1/2 old nits out of the diamond lounge seems fine.

Maybe, but it also keeps me out. I'm a bit of a bit, but I buy in full.

And this. It's always funny to read that poker players actually think the casino cares about them/us. They tolerate us and would rather replace us with slot machines.

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Just don't raise rake. Everything else basically comes out in the wash.

Diamond lounge a good example. Full time still get in. Gamblers still get in/can get in with a minimal amount of diad style action. Etc. Very worried theyll eventually go joliet style rake and its game over. Other stuff who cares they gotta do what they gotta do.

But with this new structure.. you don't, not until you've accumulated the points. And 25k takes a long ass time with poker.

Didn't you say this last year? So yeah, source?

Majestic should more actively compete. Nothing for them to lose. Horseshoe doesnt even have a hotel lol. Not like that room is filled with drunk tourists. Almost everybody is rake conscious.

Today is Nancy's retirement party, I think tomorrow is her last day. She's been around longer than me, back at the old Trump room.

The guy who posted it said they were going to eight bucks to make up for a govt shortfall like 13 months ago. He's not a source.

I kind of doubt they'll make a major change but that's jmo. I told them how many baccarat flips and drunken craps binges I'll take at their property in the future if rake goes up on the last survey I got. Plenty of places to gamble and if they don't have poker they don't have anything worth walking through the door. They don't even have a hotel!

Joliet is the same brand in a better location. They have higher rake. Their poker room is a ghost town.
