We need to get a rough estimate of who is interested in playing poker after dinner on Saturday. We need these numbers so that we can arrange to have a table and a dealer. Please post whether you would like to play. Thank you

I will donate money at the poker table if it is necessary. But I'd prefer to watch or to play craps (I did both about 50/50 last year). So, I guess, count me in unless/until you can get 7-10 other folks on the poker list?

I believe Bruce and I are up for poker. Bruce is a bit more of a newbie in that realm.

WE ALL JUST HOPE AXEL COMES TO FAN IT AWAY AGAIN THOUGH.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Well that is six players including an anonymous person who PM'ed me so I think poker will be no problem to get a table. I'm assuming Mike will play again this year?!?

Definitely in. Won $32 last year. Easy to remember, as it represented my entire poker results from last year

I'm up for poker.

Speaking of head counts, what is a good number for the Saturday dinner? They will ask when I ask for the table.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'm not sure if I can make it or not this year. However, I will try to get a private poker table for everyone like before. Unfortunately, Binions has closed their main poker room since then(that's too bad because it was actually a beautiful new poker room, what a waste) and are now down to only a few tables near the sportsbook IIRC. So, I'm not sure what kind of staffing they have available or even who's running the place nowadays.

I can also try at GN but I'm not sure who's over their now either, I'll need a head count and time, I know It's hard to say what time everyone will be done with dinner and socializing. Can someone give me a good guess based on past years?

It might come down to winging it and haveing to ask GN to open a new table for us and allow other people waiting on the list to join.

I will need a headcount so speak up.
