I'm here at the Golden Moon one of the two casinos that make up Pearl River's Resort in Choctaw, Mississippi. The room is modern and new. Plenty of amenities to make the three hour drive from New Orleans worthwhile. None moreso than the possible overlay in the Main Event tomorrow.
Gene D and I are finally at the same poker tournament at the same time. Ruling out the rumor that we have merged into one GCP mega person. Course we've yet to play the same tournament at the same time so perhaps that strange theorem still has legs.
Downstairs Gene has already won a mega for the this Main Event and will likely play tomorrow if he can get his ticket changed from his six pm start time tonight. I'll play a mega later and join him tomorrow. No idea if we'll have any company because the first flight only had 30 or so players in it. While I'd prefer an overlay and fewer people to battle it out with... we told Paul and Eric, two of the guys running the tournament, that we'd promote things for them. So... the cat's out of the bag people. 150k of prize money and probably too few people to fight for it.
Rooms are cheap.
