Last time I visited, there were 4-5 hotels that are under construction (New York , Paris etc etc). IS the construction done? Sorry for too many questions, just excited that I will be playing poker there .....
The 'cities' you've listed are actually areas of the casino floor, and as of recently there wasn't any construction going on with any of that.
They just opened their second hotel on the property. If you do not want to stay at the casino you can find some hotels in Gainsville about 20mins south on I35.
The Friday and Sunday tournaments, have a decent structure & decent turnout.
They don't run a tourney on Saturday.
The Mon-Thurs tourneys, are like most daily tourneys, 40-80 runners, pretty turbo structure.
The cash games on the weekends are great.
