The Winstar casino at the Oklahoma/Texas border would be a great place, 45 mins from DFW, they host lots of large WSOP circuit events. I'm sure there are tons of details involved that would factor in to any of these alternate places, one being staying close to his factory to use his own people i'm sure saves him quite a bit.

I think the buy'ins needed to go up as to increase the prize pool. After all we are there for many days and blowin cash gambling, eating and hotel expenses so the buy in and buy back is no big deal. I did talk with Greg Sullivan and this year is a renegotiation year with the Casino and trouble is a brewing. No more youngsters under 21 can play with the new reconfiguration of the casino and that presents a problem for Greg. He wants the kids to have access to the event and I totally agree or how are we to get new blood exposed to these top players? So, there were rumors that he might move the event back to the Executive West Hotel in Louisville. IMO that venue is too small now for the DCC to continue to be a world class event. The Casino needs this event as it generates a lot of revenue for them. Hopefully something will be worked out.

Gerry, check this out from a few years ago and let us know if it’s smaller than what we’re dealing with now.

Personally I can’t see going somewhere else but you never know.

I can’t make an edit to the first 2 posts I made here, so I have to put this info in a separate post 🙄

Anyway,

9 Ball:
1st Round—-408 players
2nd Round—312 players

96 people didn’t buy back in the 9 ball, it just doesn’t make sense to me.

It looks like there were about 24 people that identify as women in the 9 ball.
