Jack,

If you're on Facebook like their page and you'll likely get it there faster than anywhere. They keep saying it's coming. I checked today and it's still not out.

Just checked FB and in a response to an inquest (that's an inquiry for all you uneducated types - :P -....Just kidding) Binion's responded Sunday that they'd "Left a message for Glenn the Director of Casino Ops and he said it should be ready to post Tuesay [their spelling error not mine] if not first thing Wednesday."

Nope. I'm looking at something like coming out 5/23 - 6/2 or so. My wife and I are going to the Van Halen concert in Kansas City 5/22 and I'd prefer to fly out of there the next day. Only nights I have booked so far are 3 nights around Memorial Day at the Orleans because of a cheap slot tournament package. Take a break from the poker room, go hit the button for a few minutes, return to poker room...easy stuff.

Copy cat. ;) I arrive in Vegas around 8:20pm on 5/23. If you wind up getting in around the same time let me know and I'll drop you off wherever you're going, assuming you're not renting a car.

last night Binion's had a promo going on just for the day that I only know about because I went down.
Only involving pocket Jacks.

Flop a set $50
Turn a set $100
River a set $500

Flop Quads $10,000
Turn Quads $1,000
River Quads, $2,000

One lady hit the big one early on in the day in a 2/4 limit game.

That is one strange promotion. Jacks only huh? I wonder if they take a random pocket pair like that every day?

I was also playing there during the promo. This was only for St Pattys day. The room was slammed had several tables running at 1PM and when I stopped by around 11PM every table in the joint was full and both the limit and no limit had a bunch of people on the wait list. Came back at 1AM after the promo ended and there was only 1 limit and 1 no limit going.

I personally didn't care for it, table I was at was tight and with better players than I'd seen that weekend. I blew through $365 in about 3 hrs playing during the promo.
Yes my name is Ivan and I eat Tic Tacs, but no TBC I'm not an old fat Russian guy, well fat maybe.
