You can register at any time today up to the event starts.

No telling how many people will be in that event, couple hundred maybe

Re: Horseshoe Casino - Hammond, IN

I was planning on going to the horseshoe on Oct 26th and i am not interested in playing in any of the events going on. I was curious if there would still be just regular cash games going on as well. Im primarily wanting to play 1-2 and wanted to be sure i could play before heading there for no reason.

there should be plenty. the tournaments aren't going to be in the pokerroom. they are going to be in their concert hall.

My buddy has. With Chicago traffic it will get there when it gets there. I would think about 35-45 mins on a normal weekday (minimal traffic). If traffic is bad it should be somewhere between an hour and never.

You didn't specify weekday or weekend. Weekday shouldn't be too bad. Weekends would vary a lot based on events.

380ish registered for Event No. 1 by close of registration Thursday night (per lady who answered the phone in the poker room). Max capacity 800.

I think it has a very good chance of selling out with a lot of day-of registrants.

It was 425 by the end of registration today and there will try to be no cap. If there is more than 800 we will put the rest in the poker room plus alternates.

Re: Horseshoe Casino - Hammond, IN

Why was the poker room closed down right before noon Friday, to accomodate the tournament? I understand the turnout was much higher than anticipated (all good), and the Venue couldn't handle it (not too good), but to give the daily morning players a "two-hand" warning before abruptly shutting down their tables, to make way for a bunch of invaders that the Shoe isn't likely to see often after this tournament is over, seemed a slap in the face to those regular patrons.

Is it customary for the casino hosting a tournament to bend over backward for every wannabe entrant, even those dumb enough to arrive 15-30 minutes before a tournament that had had an abundance of publicity AND pre-registration? Wouldn't adhering to some sort of cutoff point have made more sense than shooing away players who support you year-round? Would it not have been better to simply use the EMPTY tables that were still available, and make THAT the cutoff point?

It's hard to tell if the Shoe was just trying it's best to be an accomdating host (although it wasn't too accomodating to it's regular clientele), or if this was a decision born of pure greed. As my hero Bill O'reilly would say..."what say ye, Jeremy?"

Standard, cash players always get the short end of the deal during WSOP Circuit events but there is a lot more action and the room is full of tourneyDonks from the Donkament. I am speaking from experiences at HCSI, I haven't been to Hammond.

At HCSI, they compeltely shut down all cash games for the large tourneys and only start cash games as tourney tables break.

The WSOP Circuit event is a mixed blessing for me, it sucks but it is the only time we can get an O/8 game.

the cash games were insane last night. i think someone posted all the games that were going. big money flying everywhere. i think i witnessed almost back to back 2500 pots in plo. and i was only in the pokerroom for like 12 minutes.
