I'm looking at Memphis as a possible bachelor party location. It would be late July. All I know about Memphis is Beale Street, which would definitely be on the list. What is there as far as Casino's, golf courses, day time entertainment for a group of 10 guys. Thanks for any insight you have!
I got to live another man’s life for a week when my brother took me on an epic golf trip. Call me Cinder-Fella! (Story and links to photo albums in comments)
My older brother and I went different ways. He became a successful attorney and I got married, had a few kids and went to work. After years of struggle I landed a union job as a maintenance electrician in an iron foundry. A couple of years after that my 14 year old son (now 29) was diagnosed with Leukemia. We enrolled him in a clinical trial that lasted almost 4 years and a year after that the plant closed and I was out of a job. I kicked around and finally landed as a 56 year old maintenance man with a grain processor making half of what I used to. My wife survived lymphoma but was out of work for a couple of years. She finally landed a 32 hour a week job that has benefits so we got that going for us. The only vacation we’ve ever took was when Make-a-Wish sent us to the Pro Bowl. I’ve never been away from my family for more than a couple of days since I got married in ’84. I’m not complaining. My life is great. My kids are alive and my family is together. We both get a steady paycheck. For us it doesn’t get much better than that nor does it need to. There isn’t much money left for extras. Certainly little for golf. My now retired brother bought me some clubs and a 2 year membership so we could spend time together and I could be introduced to the golfing community. Here’s my original WITB post We've been playing together every week since May 2016 and it has been great. This year his sons took his wife to Europe over the 4th of July. Unable to think of any good reason to go to Europe, he took us on a golf trip. I managed a couple of hundred spending money but he took care of the rest. He travels a lot and saved up reward points for all our rooms (separate of course) except one. We used Golf Now and only paid 16.00 to 22.00 per round with the exception of Tunica National. Sunday was our first day and we played Piper Glen in Springfield IL. Dave gave me a hard time about pictures on a golf trip and I was focusing on playing the course so I didn't get many pictures that first day. Piper Glen After a night at his house we headed for Tunica, stopping at Indian Springs GC in Fillmore IL. This course was built and is ran by a retired contractor and his son and daughter-in-law and felt like a big playground in the woods built just for us. Indian Springs We arrived in Tunica on Monday night. and checked into the Hollywood Casino. The 4th of July rate at the casino was only $43.00 per night for a king room. I shot some dice, only betting the come line because I don’t know how to play, and played the machines. I went down with $80.00 and went back to the room 4 hours later with $160.00 and drank gin and tonics constantly. We played Tunica National on Tuesday. We paid full rate for the golf but being afternoon on the 4th the price was right. They gave me a mark fixer and had a beverage cart driven by a pretty girl named Ginger. The carts had GPS. I felt like a celebrity. Tunica National On Wednesday we played River Bend Links in Tunica. It’s billed as a true Scottish Links course and was a lot of fun. The clubhouse attendant gave me a huggie. River Bend Links We headed for Memphis after playing River Bend and spent a fun night on Beale street blowing my winnings on bar-b-que, beer and blues. I bought a raffle ticket for a Boss Hoss motorcycle. We spent most of our night in a Juke Joint partying with a nice Australian attorney and his wife and another couple from somewhere. Beale Street Thursday was nursing a hangover and travel day. We went to Carbondale IL and took my daughter, a 2nd year graduate student, to dinner. After a relaxing night in the hotel we played Hickory Ridge. The Gator-ade was 4 bucks but the app price for the golf was cheap. Hickory Ridge He dropped me off at home in Central Illinois on Friday night. I had an epic time. If anyone finds a glass golf shoe in any of those places bring it to me… I’ll need it next year! EDIT: Wow. Thank you all so much. I'm glad you enjoyed my story. My brother has been golfing for 35 years and he says he makes friends at every course he plays. I hope that maybe someone is inspired to help someone else, perhaps someone young and disadvantaged or whatever. Giving the gift of the love of golf is something that will never be used up or go out of style or end up in a closet gathering dust. It can be expensive but there's a lot of good deals at fun courses out there. There's clubs all over facebook and craigslist and ebay if you don't mind used. See you at the clubhouse! EDIT EDIT: Thanks for the Gold!!!
So I’m sure most of us know this is opening up at noon tomorrow at several casinos across the state, and we’ve known about the Beau Rivage on the coast having built an actual book inside the casino for about a month now. Had heard rumors about the Tunica casinos opening temporary “tents” outside for football season, but now on the Gold Strike website they’re announcing an actual book opening tomorrow. Anybody know any details on this gold strike book? Really hoping I’m not going to be sitting in a tent watching football all fall (if they’d even sit up TVs)
Played in my first large tournament (1038 players, $125k prize pool)
I'm a long-time poker player. I mostly play cash games, but in the past I used to play a lot of free/cheap online tournaments with reasonable success. I've also played a couple small live tournaments (and won a 27-player cheap one). Feb. 17-19, the Horseshoe Casino in Robinsonville, MS (Tunica) had their big $50k guarantee tournament with $160 buyin. I booked a room for four nights and decided to go down and play in my first big tournament. There were three opening flights: Friday 6pm, Saturday 11am, and Saturday 6pm. All surviving players would return Sunday to finish the tournament. I decided to play the Saturday 11am flight so I wouldn't miss out on the better cash games. Friday night, I won a few hundred bucks playing casino games, so it wouldn't really hurt too bad if I did poorly in the tournament. On my Day 1, I ended up being at the table with the previous $50k's winner. We talked poker, he complimented me on my gold, and we got into a couple of hands together. I managed to get almost half his stack before he got unlucky against another player and was knocked out of the tournament. I took a big hit just 7 hands before the end of Day 1's play and ended up going into Day 2 with 37,500 chips instead of ~130k. The antes would start at 500 with 2k/4k blinds so this was far from ideal position. Average stack size at this point was $66,000. On Day 2, I just kept playing solid poker against some of the better poker pros in the region. We didn't have any world champions but there was a ton of local talent. I managed to stay aggressive while picking my spots. The day started with 152 players and paid 108. I survived long enough to cash but I never played to cash - only played to win. I ended up taking 42nd place out of the field of 1038 and took down $438 on my $160 buyin. I never made any huge mistakes, just a few smaller ones that I was able to get away from. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the tournament and look forward to going back in April to see if I can go deep again! I'll post a couple of hands I thought might be interesting.
This is an easier hand from Day 1 of the $160 buy-in $50k guarantee at the Horseshoe Tunica casino this past weekend. I didn't have a lot of very interesting hands, so here's an appetizer. Blinds: 400/800 Ante: 100 Hero: ~24,000 V: ~17,000 Dealt: AKo Hero is UTG in Seat 1. V is in Seat 4. Reads: V is playing solid TAG poker, likely a local pro. No particularly noteworthy hands. Image: I've been largely card-dead so I haven't played many hands. I am wearing a lot of gold (chains, rings) and a Rolex, so other players may perceive me either as a winning, solid player or a whale that just throws money around. We'd been having poker discussions at the table earlier, so my image is more likely to be that of a veteran poker player. Action: Hero raises to 2,500. Folds around to V. V calls. Everyone else folds. Flop: 8x 6x 3x (rainbow) Hero: ?? As with all my hand analyses, I'll give people a chance to read and comment, then I will comment below with what I did, why, and the ultimate outcome of the hand. This is a fairly simple situation but as I said, I didn't have a whole lot of hands of note during the tournament.
