    Got my ticket for the next Heartland game. Walked in at 8:30pm, played the $75 SNG and got my ticket. Made about $400 in the 2/5NL and drove back around 3am. Overall, a good night :)

    They are going to televise the final table, I'm hoping to make it there.

    Congrats and good luck. BTW what is Turning Stone like? How far from NYC? I want to go there when I head that way at the end of the summer. Do let us know how it goes.

    TS isn't bad. I don't go there a lot as it is a long haul from Rochester. About 1 1/2 hours each way from where I live. Since there are good local cash games and smaller 2-3 table tournaments locally I don't like driving that long. But for a regional event like Heartland, it's probably worth it.

    The cash games are usually pretty easy. The 1/2NL are pretty loose and depending on who sits down it can be a shovefest or a limpfest. Personally, I love limpfest games as I can play pretty well after the flop. I moved over to the 2/5NL 300 min game later in the night and the guy to my left had 2000+ and had been there for 10 hours.

    Personally, I wouldn't bother to play before 5pm as it is all locals who know each and other and grind it out. Not that I have anything against that. I prefer playing the online poker pros who venture out after work/school.

    Heh, I did the same thing at the Heartland event I played. We drove out at like 4:00am. Got to the casino at 10:00am when the first SnG started, and I won the first one and had to wait 2 days to play in the tourney, lol.

    Nice job, and good luck!

    Thanks for the info. I heard 18 year olds can play there, is that true?

    Yes, 18 and over. I sat at a 2/3NL after my SNG while waiting for a 2/5NL game and the kid that sat to my left looked like he was 14. I'm sure he got carded a few times. I saw a few kids get carded but no one was turned away. So they look, but it doesn't seem to be a problem.

    Woot, good luck! Hope to see you on TV. I have my tivo set to grab that show whenever it airs. Lots of bad play at the final table too, so you've probably got a good shot if you make it there.

    BTW, those of you who haven't been there. I think the reason 18 year olds are allowed to play is because there's not alcohol served in the casino! When is the last time you heard of a dry casino??
