A quick trip report.

This is event is the 6th meet n greet that has been done at this guys place just outside of Chicago. This is for poker/poker chip enthusiasts from pokerchipforum and chiptalk.net.

This year there was approx 20 people THUR. night, 30 all day FRI and 40 all day SAT.

We leave THUR. morning and head to Three Floyds Brewery. I guess their mostly known for the craft beer "Zombie Dust".

We had a meat plate and a couple of beers 

After sampling a couple of beers and picking up a few six packs we headed out.

We played cards THUR. night until about 3 am. FRI from 1 pm - 2 am, and SAT. from Noon until 3 am.

This was double board Pot Limit Omaha. Almost all the chips in the picture were involved in the pot. Red's are five dollar chips. This was on Friday. We only played versions of Omaha the entire day. It was fricken awesome.



We were playing .25/.50 blinds. What you see in this stack is from a pot I scooped in PLO8. Crazy game, lol



Tourney starting stack. Kind of a sh%tty picture, sorry. Had already been drinking for a few hours. There were 37 people in the tourney. I took 5th for 220.



random stacks while playing





Ben built this up to around a grand in .25/.50 poker. Ended cashing for around 400 I think,



On Friday, my table only played PLO, Double Board PLO, 5 card PLO8 and SOHE





All in all it was a great Poker Party. Got to meet a few new people. Play some new games. Drink some really good whiskey/beer. At the end of the weekend I was still up a couple of hundred bucks.

Got home SUN. evening and drank a few beers with the wifey.

I'd do a thread for the 21 player tourney I hosted on SAT with my Zombies. With a whopping two replies it doesn't seem to be quite worth my time.

Just saw this DD, a few months shy of two years late.  Still great pics and report.  More detail than I got when you told me about it in person.

Paulo and I are going next month. That will be my 3rd year in a row. Its an absolute blast. Jeff is a fantastic host. I think this year a bunch of us are renting a house via airbnb about a mile from the event.

I just got back from Chicago on Sunday.  Two hours to get through 45 miles of Indiana.

Not a fan of the drive.  Not at all.
