It was mostly full but we did play 6-8 handed some of the time. It was mostly Jews and I suggested we play some dreidel. I never saw so many yarmulkas in a casino before.

Were the games tough?

No, but I have played in much softer ones there. There were a couple of pretty good players in the game. Early one there was a really good player in the game. I moved seats to get them on my left.

20/40 dreidel shorthanded is always tough.

Unfortunately, I already lost my entire dreidel bankroll of chocolate coins to my nephew.

When I last saw Fonzi he was playing 6/12. I was waiting on a 10/20 table so I sat in, I asked him what he was doing playing so low. Fonzi tells me he lost a lot recently and had to take a step down to recover.

PS: Christmas is when the Jews & Asians show up, the 23rd & 24th is historically dead. Tomorrow should be rocking.

That might explain why he bought in for a small amount and only played a short time. He was mostly sitting at an empty table while his friend played.

Fonzi has a reputation as a huge luckbox, so maybe his luck ran out.

The funny thing is that he is always talking about religion and he wears a huge crucifix, but there he is playing poker on Christmas Eve. I'm not sure what that means.

Got there Christmas night, and the place was pickup up steam quickly. I got into a 6/12 game immediately at around 7. There were no lists for 3/6 or 6/12, at that time, but within 2 hours, there were lists, games, and lines all over the place until I left after 1:00.

6/12 game was good, as usual. A couple good young players, and a few loose donators. A few of the good players may have been 2+2ers, I'm guessing. If so, and you are reading this, I was the bald guy, green shirt, goatee. Nice to meet you guys.

Thought my first hand was a horrible omen, as I flopped a set of Q's to a flopped straight and a turned flush (and obviously, I didn't fill up). After that things worked out well and I ended up 19 BB's. Not a bad Christmas at all.

I've been playing the 10/20 there overnight a couple times this week and I love it when it gets short.

You might reconsider wearing the "Sup Bro" T-Shirt. Could be me...

Boy, you ain't kidding! Dec. 26th was an absolute madhouse at the Borgata.

When I arrived in mid-morning, they still had a tournament going on so all the tablespace was taken up. They got so busy, like 70+ names on the 2/4 HE and 1/2 NL. I guess being that busy and table space being a premium...

They cancelled the Sit & Gos that day. Furthermore, they made an announcement while I was there, all daily tournaments for the rest of this week including Sit & Gos are cancelled. Tournament schedule resumes Jan. 3rd.

Did my ears hear correctly? Can someone else verify this?

Trop cancelled their Xmas week tourneys in early December. I wouldn't be surprised if the Borg was that packed that they cancel ... more $/hr to be made from ring games for the house.

Follow THIS link and it confirms that MOST tourneys are cancelled. Looks like they kept the Friday WPT Super Sat and Sunday Ladies and night tourney.
