After throwing a Celeb/Media tournament dinner to let the world, or L.A., know that the new events room is open and a major tournament has started the Bike has hit a few banana skins. As I write nobody (Cardplayer,Pokerpages, HendonMob) has any results as nobody can be bothered to send them out. This is important information as players need to see the prize pool and who is winning these tournaments.
The Bike has a new TD who stayed until Event #3 concluded at 6am and returned at 10am to set up for todays , sell out Day1a tournament. Obviously, he needs some help from the rest of the staff and word is they may not be co operating. I have six months experience of these people and they didn’t work with the last TD either. Crudely put they are overfed lazy fuckers.
So after a frustrating unnecessary journey to the Bike today I ventured over to the commerce with TNT and Raymond Davis. Young Sam is in charge and he has the use of the upstairs ballroom. The slow elevators have been replaced and a new race book has been opened just in time for Del Mar.
On Fridays,at 6pm, the Commerce has a $50k guarantee $210 buy in which includes a food coupon. Ivory, the perfect little candy girl, is still there but Marionette has galloped off to Hollywood Park.
Jeff Lisandro, Hasan Habib and Billy Baxter were playing in the cash games at Commerce this afternoon.
If you need results from the Bike you could try calling the Welcome Center although they may only give you the winners name.
I have a couple obtained from there earlier.
