Just wondering if any of you are heading up to Reno for the Pot of Gold series of tourneys running from 10-7 thru 10-17 ? Also the Peppermill 2004 Fall Poker Tournament is running from 11-13 thru 11-21.
Pot of Gold may be at Hilton, but I'm not sure. You could probably get details by just searching for Reno Poker Tournaments.
(I can't do that here at work - all those sites are blocked.)
One thing I'd reccommend if you're serious about going is to get registered as early as possible. I was toying with the idea of going to the Peppermill tourney this spring. The seats were sold about 3 or 4 weeks before the tourney and they don't really have the ability to expand.
Araymond if you go to cardplayer.com then click on "tournaments", "upcoming tournaments" and then scroll down you will see the pot-o-gold listed in October and below that you will see the Peppermill tourney listed in November. They have the schedule of events and buy-ins for the Pot-o-gold tournies but the Peppermill info has not been posted yet. As for location you will see that the POG is held at the Hilton in Reno.
1) There's probably a few more solid players (maybe even some better than me, if you can believe that :wink: ) than you'll find in our group. More players = more solid players. There will probably be a lot of dead money type players. I'd guess the proportion would be something like:
10% Tough players (pros, semi pros, serious tourney players)
30% Solid/Wanna-be/half-a-clue players (like most of us)
60% Dead money fish
2) If you do well, you'll experience a lot of table changes. That means you'll find a new set of problems than the previous table. You'll need to get quick reads on people.
3) You'll have to outlast many more people to get near the money. (You'll have to be very lucky and hope your skill doesn't get trumped by someone running very lucky.)
