Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Hey guys - going to be in Chicago this week and next, wondering if anyone knows of a good way of getting out to Horseshoe Hammond from the loop? I won't have a rental car so may have to take a bus? Anyone have any idea much an Uber is - the estimate function on their website doesn't return a quote for this route for some reason...

UberX from downtown is around $35-40 no surge. Similar in return, maybe a bit more.

They'll tell you it's an Illinois Gaming Rule
The Illinois Gaming Board doesn't write any of the game rules, but it does require casinos to follow their stated internal controls in which they describe their rules. What this probably means is someone wrote the rules a while ago, probably before the 2000s poker boom or before smart phones were ubiquitous. Then because poker is such a small portion of their revenue, no one ever bothers to take the effort to submit updated internal controls to the IGB.

So because changing the rules to keep up with times takes effort, they probably just never bothered.

You're also not allowed to rob or shoot anyone in the state of Indiana.

That depends on how good of a Player you are ... bad Players get robbed on arrival ... good Players get robbed at exit. GL

Will be at Hammond starting Monday the 15th. Down to play some 50-100 mix every day that I’m not still in a tournament. Lmk time and days if anyone setting up games is able to. Thanks.

Re: Horseshoe Hammond (Hammond, IN)

Nice little visit on Sunday. Busted Seniors about 20 from the money and then promptly better than min-cashed via a short 2-5 stint and 2 hours of 1-2 PLO. I'm not sure why I even bother with tournaments, but I did feel pretty good during Sunday's one .. just need to play more I guess.

WATCH the Dealers during PLO. There was a spot where there was about 65 in the pot and a Player slid out 150 (stack plus 2 greens on top) from the BB on the Flop. The Dealer was actually counting it down and other Players were getting ready to fold. Yes, that is how weak the 1-2 play is at times here ... Players not spotting/knowing that this was not a legal play. GL
