More than a ton. Its like every other player is sponsored by WSOP. It's easier to spot the regs from the weekend tournament player. My only beef is that the young sponsored WSOP gear players treat every hand in cash game like its the TV final table of a big event. No need to debate calling a $35 all in bet when $500 is in the pot. Let's keep the game moving.

It's so funny, you can spot these guys 100 yards away. Backwards WSOP hat, either a HUGE headphone on one ear, or a single bud in one ear, mirrored sunglasses, and the HUGE backpack. What's with the backpack? I understand taking a few items with you, but these guys are about to hiking through the mountains. Just don't understand it. I'm a cash game player, so maybe I'm not suppose to understand it.

Played with a guy today who had to commentate and justify his play after every hand. Him and another guy. It's like they had to prove to one another who watches more tv poker. The majority of the tournament players who are playing the cash games are more about ego and show than actual play. Been a pretty good tournament so far for me, and havn't played in one event. Gonna continue to play the cash games for rest of the month.

Good luck to all the players in the Main Event. I returned to Atlanta last night to watch my daughter's soccer match. I had a great time at this year's opening circuit event. The dealers and staff did an awesome job. I enjoyed getting to know a lot of the tournament regulars and look forward to joining you guys on future circuit stops.

FYI, I am the player that will try and partner with the WSOP to have hotel group discounted room rates and blocks for all future events. I will begin searching room availability for future circuit events this upcoming week. The idea is to have a hyperlink on the WSOP website so players will have a convenient way to make their hotel reservations and review hotel availability and discounted group rates.

Again, good luck to all the ME players and I look forward to following the action from the online rail.

I can't agree more! I ran into a few of these guys and it's baffling. My wife and I were getting on the elevator at the Horseshoe hotel on Thursday afternoon and out walked three guys, not one of them over 24, all had on pajama pants (one with cartoon characters on them), caps turned around backwards, sunglasses sitting on top of their caps, backpacks and HUGE headphones around their necks. Look, if you want to listen to music while you play and you, for some reason, like 80's rapper headphones, that's cool. But do you really need them on as soon as you leave your room, and not just put them in that backpack you've got?lol I guess I'm just getting to be one of those grumpy old men who doesn't like the way "these youngsters dress these days." Guess that happens when you get a wife and kids and are over 30 yrs old.lol

All joking aside, I was glad to see so many people came to town to play and I think the turnout was awesome. The cash games were good and plentiful but I guess since the WPO is the only other big tournament I've been to, I just had no idea that all the mirrored sunglasses, stare down soul reads for 3 minutes and open table talk about the reverse implied odds of an overcall with 2 players left to act was all so common these days.

Busted out of main KK vs AA. Played 6 tourneys knocked out of 2 with KK vs AA, 1 with AK vs A6 (he put me all in, guess he knew a 6 was coming) and all these were all in preflop, 1 with QQ vs 99 trash flop 247 I bet he pushes I call he catches 9 on river and another loss was set over set and 1 misread the other player. 1 cash 19th place and then 10 from money, 13 from money, 15 from money, a quick exit on 2nd hand and out in 5th level of main. Just a lot of run bad hopefully Southern Indiana will be better, guess it has to be since it couldn't get much worse.

You definitely had some great stacks throughout several tournaments. Unfortunate run of cards late in the tournaments. My guess is the next circuit event will be more favorable for you. It was great meeting you this week!

Im still in day 2 of todays 5:00pm event so im not out of here yet, but just wanted to take a moment to thank Jimmy, his staff, and the dealers for a wonderful circuit. No body puts a better performance together top to bottom then these guys.

This was my first full circuit start to finish, and had a blast. Hoping I can get enough to come out to durant.

And we want to thank you for hosting the tourney and for having the insight to hire one of the best TDs in the business. Since you have the first event expenses taken care of we would like to see some food vouchers next year. I know you don't have any control over F and B but those prices are rediculious. If I am charged $8 for a $2 hamburger I expect a little scenery like at Hooters. But then I heard the massage services were a great value.

One thing, I want to point out, being that this was the 1st wsop circuit of the season (so hoping they will remedy it) is that I was quite offended by the WSOP "I'm a Player" banners and posters everywhere, showcasing players wearing FTP patches and gear. Pretty sure the WSOP/Caesar's does not want to be seen as endorsing a company that stole hundreds of millions of dollars from the poker community...It was just very offensive personally, as someone who was critically affected by BF and the FTP collapse.

Please do something about this and get rid of those damn banners.

Can you help me find results of 9/12 O8 tourny 126 players in Bossier City? Not on poker pages or wsop site, I busted 17th, just out the money, and went home to Texas without knowing results. Thank you.

We won't use those onsite going forward at any of the sites Poker Tournament Consultants staff on the circuit (which is the majority). Thanks for the input, that one slipped by us.

Hope you all had a great time here and I hope we can fix a few problems such as poker room rates and food vouchers that all the other sites have.

I had two cashes including the first re-entry and the main event out of the four I played.

I really enjoyed meeting you Tex, and I really enjoyed putting Primo on tilt in the Main Event!!! What a jerk that guy is.

See yall in Durant!
