ytf,

Believe it or not, craigslist. Last few times I have gone this has been the way. You just need to find a season ticket holder and meet them with cash for hard tickets.

This is a great way for a season ticket holder to lose their season tickets. All it takes is one drunken buffoon who dumps beer on Tyreek Hill.

Correct, which is why when we sell our tickets we use the official exchange site, even though we can't make money that way. But people do it, so it's not a bad option as a buyer.

Yes, but that wasn't the question posed.


Funny ytf-esque side story:

Was buying 2 tickets from a guy for $200 each and we met in Bass Pro Shop parking lot at Gillette. I go over to his truck, we shoot the **** for a minute, he takes out the tickets and I take out my wad of 20's and casually say "Ok $300..." and he stops dead and slowly turns toward me with half surprise and half disgust and says "It's $400..."

"Just a little craigslist humor there for you haha..." and we both lol as I count out 400.

Re: New England General Discussion - Poker Room List in OP

Usually, when I want to buy tickets to a game or concert, I want to pay a little extra and get nice seats, and CL has always there for me, and it's been terrific.

This is the first time it's not helping. There are a couple of ads selling a pair of tickets for $400-600 each. I might pay that much to see a Superb Owl, but a reg season game in December? Not interested.

The rest of the CL ads are for ticket brokers, who all seem to use the same software to middle-man NFL Ticket Exchange for me.

I hadn't thought about finding a Vikes bar. Nice idea, Rhody! I'll pass it along.

I really apologize for the derail, I tried to steer it to the Patriots thread. Thanks to all for replies, and to all others for showing patience with me.

Lattimer. No longer true. This is the first season that weve been able to name our price for selling on exchange, including preseason.

also, no paper tickets anymore. if its paper, it's bad.

only hard season tickets. All else is mobile ticketing, to prevent counterfeiting, at least that what I've been told.

season ticket verified via email.
in past years if you sold through ticket exchange and there was an incident you were protected.
not so now. yes you can name your price but you also take the risk if there is an incident its on you and you can forfeit season tickets.

That sucks. So there's no way to unload tickets and be protected?

This makes no sense. You are reselling Tix on the team sponsored site. The team knows you have nothing to do with the incident.

The Krafts have a long standing approach that season ticket holders are responsible for whoever sits in their seat. From what I've heard, they rarely make exceptions.

To whoever deleted my nonsense posts from today: sincere thanks. Those posts were a bad idea, and I regret the error in judgment.

(It was more football ticket nonsense, taken to an absurd level.)

Re: New England General Discussion - Poker Room List in OP

To all our new england friends I saw an article in paper today about sports betting. In December Rhode Island casinos will begin taking bets and have sportsbooks. I'm not huge on that but it will be nice to put down some futures without using sketchy online sites .

Will be in downtown Boston for work. Thinking of driving up to Chasers to play 2/5 on a Wednesday after work. Good idea?
Or will the list be too long to get a real session in?

Put your name on the list via Poker Atlas app about 45 minutes before you arrive (you have an hour from the time you sign up to arrive at the room) and you should be quick to get a seat once you arrive.

Re: New England General Discussion - Poker Room List in OP

FW has 1-5 spread stud near daily and 5-10 o8 w kill towards weekends, iirc. Check bravo. Look for 10 stud and pink chip mix at Mohegan. Also bravo. I've seen lists for LL stud at twin but idk if it goes. Good luck!

Im not 100% sure, but I dont think the pink chip game (7.5/15 HORSE) at Mohegan has run for quite some time

@YTF I agree bravo would be the best place to check, and Foxwoods will most likely be your best bet with those games running the most tables

Check Bravo tomorrow, but unless something changed in the last week or two, the pink chip game has been going every Thursday at Mohegan.
