Be There or Be Square: Grand Casino, Coushatta LA, August 25-27

All righty then. All systems go for a quick jaunt to Louisiana for some live poker fun at the end of August. I'm going to drive down in the afternoon on Thursday, August 25th and be there through Saturday, August 27 (I'll probably take off mid-afternoon Saturday to head back home.) Staying at the lovely Best Western just down the road in Kinder.

No real game plan, other than to play tons and tons of poker, as the wife kindly allowed me to fly solo on this jaunt. I'll probably play in the noon tournament they're running on Saturday (details below), despite the slightly oddball structure. Any and all area bloggers welcome to show up and partake in pokery fun.

Holla if you need more details/information.

What's the buy-in on the tourney? I'm interested and that's probably a good weekend for me, I'll start looking into arrangements.

Very tempting... the 10 hour drive from good old St Louis may be a bit far. Mrs Wonka is even out of town that weekend. If you guys ever decide to do a Tunica trip (only 5 hours), I would be in.

I just might be able to do that.

I can probably make it.

Is the Best Western significantly cheaper than the Hotel or the Inn on the property?
