Default PPM cruise package

I won a package a little while ago and thought it was for 2 people but just talked to a buddy who said he was pretty sure it was for 4. Anyone have any confirmation one way or the other?

I'm nearly positive it's just for 2, unless they changed it form last year.

Oh - cool. I take it those 2 people u could upgrade to were just to go on the cruise, and not necessarily any tourney entry fees...were there a lot of side games going at all hrs on the cruise? i.e. is it worth going on even if you're not playing in the big event?

(BTW, there should be federal legislation against LIMIT hold'em tournaments -- friggin' retarded. and i'm a big LHE player. But for tournies, it blows)

there were lots of people there who did not play in the main tourney....just like on a regular 'card-player' cruise (with a lot more players).

the side-game action was pretty big and plentiful.

5 a.m. for some 40/80 or higher?? Probably not a problem (although it might be kind of short-handed by then).

For B-kick I have to believe there would be plenty of 100/200 and higher action but I honestly wasn't looking.


When the tournament wasn't taking place there were 60 tables in the main poker playing room and it was pretty hopping in there.

Some of the people on the cruise spent WAY too much time in the poker-room and not nearly as much time enjoying everything else there was to enjoy.

For small-timers like me there's a ton of 3/6, 6/12 and 10/20 action taking place.

NL ring-game action too of course.


However, there is no poker allowed when the ship is docked at port.
So on Tuesday when we pulled into Mazatlan at 6am or so they had to close the whole room down...and couldn't re-open it until the boat pulled away again at 5pm.

This only happens on Tuesday and Wednesday. The ship only makes two stops. (Jamaica and Cayman Isls. this year).


I can also confirm that the cruise last year was for 2 people...but $500 for each additional person.
Some people brought their families and were there with their kids...but obviously there weren't THAT many kids on board.


congrats again to bicyclekick...hope to see you there.
it's a really awesome time.

18+ could play in the side games last year. I really put one guy in the 2/4 game on tilt when I flopped two pair with like 93s or something. BTW I experienced an interesting phenomena. THe first night after my girlfriend fell asleep i went down to the poker room to check out the action, and jumped in a 40/80 game. It felt like work, and after about 2 orbits i decided i didn't want to do work while on vacation. I spent the rest of the time playing 2/4, making friends, and generally having a great time. No real need to play your normal limits on the cruise I think, how much would it suck to be stuck a whole bunch of cash on the cruise and have that put a damper on the whole trip.

agreed.


you should have gone up to the top on that first night though.

GF and I napped after all the travel..woke-up at 1:30am and wanted to drink....went up to that bar/club and we were the only ones there....until Chris Ferguson walked in with some stripper-type girl (stereo-typing) at which point they were getting all jiggy on the dance-floor.

it was really funny.
my GF had no idea who Chris Ferguson was and was like, "wtf is that weird-lookin dude?'

later...Chris sat in his chair while the chick was doing some weird stripper-like dance with one of the poles/beams on the dance-floor...for something like 5 or 6 songs.


It was WAY more entertaining than any 2/4 game could EVER have been I promise.
