Have you tried the seared tuna? Its the best comes with a Ponzu sauce. I ask for cucumber underneath instead of seaweed gives it the perfect little crunch.

I will be there of course, loving the schedule with the back to back opening 50ks, so that first week will have a good tourney early in the week. See everyone there, hoping my AA will hold hu this time!!

Re: WPT BESTBET JAX 3/7-3/25

I take it the turnout for prelims will be slightly lower due to battle at the beach and other series going on. That being said the structures are great for the price.

I'm getting pretty tired of our crappy garauntees when you consider the tournaments the rest of FL has been running.

Unfortunately I have to skip everything but the main this series unless my schedule changes out of nowhere. Also playing HPT main the weekend after.

Looking for a little advice on Jacksonville hotels. Hawthorn Suites on Baymeadows Rd. Looks to be a decent value. Is the neighborhood OK?

It'll do fine. I've stayed there through Hotwire. An Extended Stay style place so nightly linen changes aren't free, no big deal for me. In any decent size city, don't leave pawnable electronics or valuables visible in the car.

You can get decent pricing on radisson, best western, etc in the southpoint area (JTB, belfort and salisbury rd.) Just dont stay at the howard johnson.

Baymeadows is fine, just older business area. As said before no valuables left visible in the car. There are some smash and grabs in that neighborhood. Homewood (thats what the sign says) Suites has a well lit parking lot, which helps.
