    Not sure what tournament Doug Jones attended. The event was called to order at 205pm, with reading of the rules. Cards were in the air immediately thereafter. The tournament lasted over eight hours and all players had a full re-buy, giving everyone two full opportunities to win. If you want more than that, you probably aren't satisfied with any tournament you don't win. As promised, the competition was terrific as reflected by the quality of players making the final table. Congratulations to everyone who made it such a competitive event !

    Tremendous competition. Congratulations to Tom Simpkins who made a 1 in 61 shot by winning the tournament and thereby winning the 2009 Grand Championship!

    I did not like how they moved you from table to table. I was moved from 1 table and they immeadeatly put someone in the chair I had left. This did make sense to me except they wanted me out of the tournament. The table I went to all the people had a LOT OF MONEY and I play 3 hands and I was out. Before I moved I was playing with people that had about the same amout of money as I did. THey pick and choose who they want to continue on.

    When it's posted that registration begins at 1:15 pm and play begins at 2:00 pm. I expect that to happen within a couple of minutes, not 20 plus minutes later.
    The blind and ante structure was not posted, was not available to players, there was no visible clock and it seemed that the blinds went up at random times whenever someone felt like it.
    The ante structure was much to aggressive for blind level, they were out of sync.
    Tables were balanced promptly and kept full.

    the tourney was very unorganized. They did know how the blinds were going to raise or how often. I doubt very seriously I will play again.
    The people were nice.
