Re: Chicago Poker Classic 2012 - Horseshoe Hammond (Chicago) Feb. 23 - March 5

last year at cpc i could barely get 3g in the venue at all, and the 2-3 wireless networks worked sporadically. at wsopc in october 3g worked all the time so didn't try any of the wifis. but i'm not sure if the wifi is supposed to be for public use, which is why it doesn't work at all, maybe ask a venue employee whenever someone gets a chance and report back if you can get access to it

Re: Chicago Poker Classic 2012 - Horseshoe Hammond (Chicago) Feb. 23 - March 5

I know it is probably not the correct thread but I need feedback from those that have played and will be at CPC. Is there any limit cash games o8, HE, or mix-games?

Re: Chicago Poker Classic 2012 - Horseshoe Hammond (Chicago) Feb. 23 - March 5

There has never been public wifi in the poker room or in the Venue. Ive asked managers to look into it, but nothing yet. I have Verizon, they added a tower in the area within the last year, so I get reliable 3G, but 4G is out. Having a power hungry Android phone, this is my best friend during tourney series

Buy it and thank me later. I have yet to have a phone die on me with heavy texting, twittering, surfing and anything else I do to keep from dying of boredom during tourneys. Phone would be dead in 4 hours without it.

How much snow is forecast for Thursday into Friday? For the first time in 3 years, looks like the Chicago Poker Classic will get hit by a snowstorm...

I was watching the news this morning and this is what they said: Winter storm watch/warning, or something like that, starts around 6pm and runs through 9am Friday. "Couple inches of accumulation", "Maybe up to 6-8 inches" ( wtf! )

Hopefully it won't affect people attending today's re-entry, but it may affect entries tomorrow. I guess we'll see.

Limit HE will definately run throughout. I think as low as 3-6 and as high as 20-40.

Mix games will run also, not sure on limits, but 10-20 might be the lowest.

I have seen the o8 run a lot but never payed much attention to it during any of the series. My guess is it will run some.

I wondered about that too. I would think that would affect tomorrow more than today, since it isn't supposed to start snowing until this evening.

Re: Chicago Poker Classic 2012 - Horseshoe Hammond (Chicago) Feb. 23 - March 5

Some dude sits down at my table two people to my right. Shoves every hand blind with his starting stack. After initially getting some folds he starts sucking out on people. I get pocket nines and it's a snap shove obv since he is all in blind. The one dude left to act has queens so i'm done. Shove blind guy had k4. Man, why can't this be rebuy instead of reentry? I wanna go back to that table!

Re: Chicago Poker Classic 2012 - Horseshoe Hammond (Chicago) Feb. 23 - March 5

While playing cash games yesterday, I asked one of the floor managers what the cash game situation would be for today. He said expect no games until 4-5pm. There were ~10 tables going in the morning and 18 tables going now (according to Bravo). Seems as if turnout for tourney was less than expected, which seems normal considering weather/possible snowstorm.

Can anyone report on the single table SnG situation for the event? Are they running in the poker room, the bar area or in the Venue? And are they running many of them?
