LOL, FOH with this nonsense, what kind of hypersensitive 12 year old do they have running their Twitter account? Oh damn, I guess I cant see their overagressive meme use anymore.
What were the exact words you used? Because wow that's completely ridiculous.

It was an admittedly smart ass comment a few weeks back - but absolutely nothing rude at all.

Whatever, I got over it. I just found it childish.

But will it actually run? Someone mentioned 14-15 people on the list last week but they never opened a table. With the last flop it promo for July (and better payouts for the gettable hands like flushes and boats) the room is going to be absolutely crazy tomorrow all day.

They probably thought it was childish too, thus the ban for trolling.

What was the exact tweet that got you blocked from MGMNH's twitter?

Any changes to the COVID protocols (masks, 8 handed, etc)?

Looks like governments (fed, state) could bring COVID restrictions back.

Last time I was there in June masks were optional. We were playing 8 handed.

No changes so far. MD doesn’t have a mask mandate, just DC as it stands now.

In addition the chip runners come with these ridiculous chip denomination requests and cut to the front of the line.

I think the solution would be:
1. To let the floor that manages the tournament should accept the tournament entries or reentries.
2. Have a chip cart at the front and do the chip runner transaction through them.
3. Have more staff for the first three hours of tournaments.
1) does mgm allow floors to take cash for tournys?
2) yes, the brush used to have chips to sell in the past
3) poker has no control over the cage. also, lack of cashiers is happening at other mgm properties.
read that borgata sometimes doesnt even have a cashier in the poker room during daylight times
