Yeah, going just a little south to Munster or whatever has great options. And yes, Schoops is awesome. Get the burger with the crispy edges.

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Is the room doing any table draws for CPC main event seats, or any other promos going on this month?

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

I'm in the Chicago area on business and I've been playing quite a bit at Horseshoe. I thought I might play a tournament this Sunday but decided to look up the structure before I drove out there.

Buy-in and Rake
Buy-in: $210
Entry Fee: $210
Total Buy-in: $420
Chips
Base Starting Chips: 8,000
Total Chips: 8,000
Blinds
25/30 minute levels


Is this a typo or are the tournament fees are actually 100% of the buy-in? 30% is unbeatable! Who's playing these?

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

how much does valet cost? is it worth it to pay for, you know, to avoid getting followed and beaten up in the parking garage?

^^^Hammond is super sketchy. But as long as you are aware of your surroundings, you should be fine parking in the parking garage.

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Never felt unsafe in any casino parking structure ... even a couple I had to cross the street to get to. I worry more about a car jacking for some reason ...

Just use your ears and eyes (in that order) and have your keys in your hand before exiting the stairwell/elevator. GL

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Garage is safe, don't even worry about the keys in your hand thing. The only security precaution I take is to limit the number of people who know I have cash and avoid flashing it.

It's 10 bucks. I aways walk around a bit after i cash out at the main cage. Get food or candy then leave. If u really feel uncomfortable ask for a walk out

The garage is safe but stopping at some of the nearby gas stations late night might not be the best idea. Heard of a few people getting robbed.

I heard a 5/T reg got banned but not for bashing them on social media...it was because he did not return a chip he found - or something to that effect.

I was there last weekend - they had a few auxiliary tables just outside the poker room that were not in use at the time, and I didn’t have to wait very long to get into a game, I think maybe 30 minutes from the moment I stepped off the shuttle that left Chinatown (westbound Archer under the Red Line) at 6:15pm! YMMV

He was overpaid 1000 from the cage, went to the table realized he was overpaid, went back to the cage. They take the chips back and then overpaid him again this time 500, he goes back plays for 4 hours, floor comes up and says the cage overpaid him 500, he has to pay it back. He argues asking for the tape, they tell him he can pay back the 500 or be banned. He pays back the 500 and continues to play. Next time he comes back he is told he has be banned.

I heard he was overpaid by 1000 only says you over paid me by 500 pays that back pockets other 500 that story doesn't make sense they overpay him by 1k he goes back and they still overpay him guy sounds like a scumbag to me good thing the shoe gave him the boot

Does anyone else feel that these fields for these tournaments are a lot less than the years in the past

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

5-10 Player getting banned over 50 BB! Might be the best for the player .. although 'we' tend to find games no matter the situation.

How about the cashier ... screwing up twice? Really doesn't make sense. I like the version where he only pays back half the over-payment and doesn't give it a second thought that they might check the tape when the drawer is still off.

His only hope is that he actually did 'voluntarily' give back the first $500 and can claim that he screwed up as well. GL

In Chicago for business next week. How's the PLO action here on a Wednesday or Thursday night? How big a game would be available?

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

2-4 tables of 1-2-5 PLO, unlikely to find bigger.

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

No need to worry about how 'big' ... there will be plenty of chips on at least one of the tables regardless of what the stake placard indicates! GL

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Thanks guys. Assume when you say 1-2-5 it's 1/2 w/ a $5 bring in? What's the buy in cap at that game? I'll almost certainly be there Wednesday and/or Thursday degenning it up a bit.

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

^^^$500 is the max buy-in for 1/2 (with a $5 bring in) PLO. Don't be fooled, the game plays big. Better action on Wednesday night than Thursday night, IMO.

What games are in the $50/100 mix? Is it always the same? Does lower stakes mix game ever run?
