Let's try the next step (and please limit comments on this thread to "how likely" or where; other comments on the other thread... as people weigh in, I'll edit the list here.)

How likely are you to participate IF:

September 24 and 25.

Either Memphis or New Orleans (state a preference if you have one.)

$100 entry

Double elim, 3/2

No Smoking

State your "how likely" as:

1. Definitely (just means 90% -- shit happens)
2. Probably (70%)
3. Maybe (30%)

If we get more than around 16 players we might need to have the calcutta Fri night and may start matches Sat. morning as early as 10:00.

===========

So far I think we have Definites:

LSJohn
Jeff Sparks
1Pwannabe
Jerry Matchin
Miller
Hardmix
CrabcatJohn
jtompilot
Bill
wgcp
kicker
Jakie
Newkirk
poolandpokerman

if N.O:
Disco Dave
Gulfport Doc
One Pocket Smitty
Frank Almanza
Tyler Bob
DickP

if Memphis:

One Pocket Guy
Rowsey
Milton77
BRLongArm

=========
Probably or Maybe:

lll
Nick B
darmoose
Island Drive
NHSteve
kollegedave
Hendy
Cincy Kid
Cory in dc
============

If I put your name on the wrong part of the list, just say so on this thread and I'll edit this first post.

Under your definition, I am probably to definite on 9/24 and 9/25. My response is the same for either location and for a higher or lower entry fee. The only variable is whether work will be calm enough that I can go.

Thanks for stepping up to organize!

I'm interested as a probably. Lacy's is nice and I need to visit a friend in Memphis anyway. Houston works, too, unless it's been ruled out already. (All this assuming I post enough to qualify or someone rules 9 years of lurking as time served.)

Brad, You are IN!

You earned your stripes against Efren. (and a post from 2014 doesn't hurt.) :D

Hey john thanks for including me but I have no chance of going in September it's booked solid. If it were another time I would do my best to show but that still wouldn't be a definite.

Something at the dcc would be best loc for me and Chicago would be a distant second.

Since those aren't an option in this thread just ignore my comments lol :)

I have a wee feeling that September might be too close. 4-6 months might be better. It would give guys more time to make their decisions and plan.

BTW, I suspect that if BRLongArm is "in" for Southaven, then he'd certainly participate in a New Orleans event, seeing as how it's just down the road.;)

Sorry, Kid... I must have misunderstood something on the other thread.

Dang, I wish you could be involved.

Me too!

I was just looking at my schedule. I get back from Canada SEP 23rd and then I have to be in Nashville, TN for a conference 25-27. However, there's a slight chance that I could get away with showing up at the conference on the 26th which would allow me to make the 24/25 time frame and be only 3 hours away from Nashville if it were held in Memphis.

Ok, I guess leave me in for a "maybe" if it's in Memphis :)

John, I would be a 90% to play either location. Would prefer a little action with
Disco Dave to make the trip more enjoyable.:) Memphis at HighPockets ???

My wife likes Beale St. I like seafood in NO

I would be 95% if Troutman shows up !!

Yes, I think so, but early on he specifically mentioned Memphis, so I have PMd him to verify his interest in NO as well. Maybe there is work or other travel at the scheduled time in the direction of Memphis.

John,
Sorry, I didn't see this thread before I posted on the other one...

I'm in for either location! I'm driving, N.O. Is 6 hours, and Memphis is 10 hours.
I get a free room in Tunica at the Horseshoe or the Gold Strike ( yep, I'm on the suckers list) so my primary vote goes to Memphis...

Thanks John for carrying the ball on this thing... You da man....:):):)

Both cities are tough for me. Central or West and I'm in.

As is No.
