    Anyone up for a drive to Bay 101 or Casino Matrix for some Hold 'Em on Friday of the conference?

    I can drive.

    What is the ante? One share of TSLA? ;-)

    Hmmm- The wife and I had been thinking of checking out the Bay 101 at some point. I only signed up for the main Saturday TESLIVE session, but if a group is going to Bay 101 on Friday then we could meet the group there.

    IMHO, Matrix would be more interesting. It's newer and much more upscale. Nicer bar is more like a club scene. But there are more tables at Bay 101.

    Both have 1/3 games that beginners can buy into for approx. 1 share of TSLA ($100). Both also have bigger games.

    We're definitely interested- hadn't heard of Casino Matrix before but it definitely sounds like it's worth checking out. We could meet up at the hotel when the reception winds down and head to the Casino.

    I can always be persuaded for a good game of cards. Let me check with the better half and see what her plans might look like.

    My wife and I are still potentially interested. Any new details since your original post?

    P.S. Sorry to hear about your accident- but glad to see from your sig that a replacement is imminent.

    No additional details. I'll take a look at the agenda and update this thread with a meeting place. As I recall, there is no dinner plan on Friday. Maybe we can all grab a bite and then go play cards.

    I'm always up for a good game of holdem. How about a late night game in the Crown Plaza lounge?

    I'd prefer to take money from players who aren't TMC members :)

    Better lighting, felt tables, professional dealers and table service at the casino as well.

    I'm in for a game. Let's do it at the hotel and keep the rake. I'll bring the cards.

    I can bring chips. Hopefully we can find a table at the hotel that is appropriate. I'll see if a friend with a real table would be willing to loan it for a night.

    I'm still game for a quick trip to Matrix or Bay 101 casinos; I know that a couple of people here expressed an interest in seeing those. But maybe table talk would be more interesting with all Tesla owners/fans. If we play at the hotel, we won't have to wait for a table and we won't get separated.

    No Limit Texas Hold 'em. Keep the stakes $1/2 or $3/5 to keep the game friendly?

    Hotel restaurants are open to these sort of gatherings. You should check with them. Easy access.

    Hotel sounds good as well if that works out better for people.

    Sounds like people want to play at Tre hotel. Lets try to finalize at the reception.
