Old Black Water, Keep On Rollin

Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shining on me.........

Bonus points for naming the song.

Well, I'm now booked. Heading to Tunica for the WSOP Circuit event. I am tentatively heading down on Friday the 12th and looking to satellite into the $1K H.O.R.S.E. tournament being held on Saturday the 13th at noon. I'd rather not put up $1K+60 since I don't really keep that lying around and I play at much lower stakes online. I'd prefer to build it up in the ring games, or play a satellite to get the buy-in.

Unfortunately, the Grand Casino Tunica is pretty full right now, so I could only book for one night as there isn't anything available on Saturday night yet. I'll just have to keep calling and hoping for sudden availability. At least I got a good rate - only $49 for the night I booked. If I win the HORSE event, then I won't have to worry about paying a rack room rate Saturday night!

What's HORSE?

Hold Em
Omaha Hi-Lo (Eight or better)
Razz
Seven Card Stud
Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo (Eight or Better)

At least Tunica is close by. At only 400 miles, I can knock out the drive in 6-7 hours, depending on number of people in the truck.

Anyway, considering my success lately at the stud games, I'd feel optimistic about entering such a tournament.

There's also the option of a $500+50 NLHE at 3 PM on Saturday, if I don't move up enough for HORSE. I'm less comfortable doing that right now, though, as I've had a cold streak lately on Hold Em.

So, come on down.

Pass the "DOOBIE" my brother!

There's also John Anderson's "Mississippi Moon" and Faith Hill's "Mississippi Girl."

But perhaps Kenny Rogers is most appropriate at the moment....You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em....

Good luck!

Thanks. Still not quite 100% sure if I'm going, everyone goes, or no one goes. At least I've got the room partially booked if we do go. Depends on health, and willingness to travel.

I don't like that Faith Hill song, though. I got tired of that very quickly.

Your prize is fourth place in football.

J/k - I'll figure it out. Maybe I'll ship a cigar to you - shipping a doobie might be a bit much.
