There were guys wearing eagles jerseys, they were happy the eagles won, they reminded you (however old they were), that this is the first time the eagles won a SB in their lifetime. I wasn’t there- I’m just sure that that’s how it was.

Hopefully Parx survives the carnage Eagles fans will lay to the city over the next few days.

On another note, wtf is up with allowing tournament rebuys to be seated before alternates? Never heard of this before.

Last I heard it’s in progress. Also doing away with the smoking section of slots outside the room- that’ll be non smoking

New room is miles better, don’t know why anyone would ever miss taking the escalator up to the dark and dank pit of misery in other building.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

I actually enjoyed the bar. I also enjoyed the fact the room was by itself & devoid of the annoying ding ding ding of slots and the grey hairs that infest them. I liked taking breaks and going down to check out the horses/races for a bit.

Parking is pretty self explanatory when you see it, it's just a big open ground parking lot with a few entrances/exits & no garage. Valet is on the right side of the main casino building.

The new poker room is in the main casino building, so you can self park by the main entrance parking lot if you are playing cash.

If you are going to play the main tourneys in the Big Stax, they are still being held in the Parx East building so you'll want to self park over there. If you get their early, you can try parking in the front lot on left (where employees park on right).

Park on the northwest side (near the entrance closest to where the old room was), and go in the side entrance there, closest to Chickie and Pete's.

Are the structures the same for Big Stax this time around? Website is not iPhone compatible unfortunately.

Yes, but the start time has been moved up to 10am for all the flights, not just Saturday like last few series. I've been seeing a lot of 10am start times for tourneys at a few different casino this year.

Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ in OP

During Big Stax, are they also running cash games in the old building? Do players have to walk to the other building to play cash if they bust the tourney (or tourney is on dinner break, etc)?

Getting done Friday night. Just rain and wintry mix. No accumulation. Clear weather for Saturday.

Well it was a little more than that. Had to cut a trip to NYC short and now on day two of no power and generator operation.

And by northwest side I think you mean southwest side, cause the entrance nearest the old room is on the south side

The door closest to the old room. The curve to the left once you go inside. Simple enough?

Well you can believe what you want, but maybe consider looking at a map before correcting people.
