I am psychic

Late last night, while writing a reply on an online forum, I wrote: "Tropicana's pay-by-the-hour promotion kills all the action during the day, and it's often dead at night. I suspect that room will not survive long."

About five minutes ago, one of the Tropicana dealers said on Twitter that the Tropicana poker room will be closing tomorrow.

You might say that this required no special psychic powers on my part, that anybody could see this coming from how little activity there is in that room, or from the fact that it was briefly associated with Jamie Gold and every poker business venture he's involved with rapidly fails, or from the fact that they have no idea how to run a poker room or take care of customers.

I reject all such mundane explanations. I am psychic, and that's all there is to it.

Oh wait -- am I confusing you with another Las Vegas poker blogger who now plays at the south end of the strip?

so whats going to become of the cannon mix game if it closes? i was tired, sleeping earlier lately, waking up earlier, so i didnt make it over after all. im at home. ellis island is more dead and should close. so should some other rooms.

why does the promo kill the game at trop (instead of bringing players in at TI which has similar promo) thoughts?

That promotion was so dumb. Paying people to play encouraged the worst most boring nits in the world to play there. These were awful awful boring people. the worst one was this loud very fat woman.
