I would also like to add
Horseshoe Casino and Hotel (who now hosts the DCC)

not to mention all the pool rooms around the country who continuously promote the sport by hosting regional tours, and independent tournaments.

You should contact Dr. Pool over at http://www.drpool.net/

He's been running the Native American Casino Pool Tour for quite sometime and has a vast list of casino's to add.

Here in AZ, the Wild Horse Pass Casino is a sponsor of the Desert Classic Tour and holds their finale!

Also, the Radisson Fort McDowell Casino is hosting the BCAPL Southwest Regional this coming Sept. 1st - 5th.

Holly, where was the NCS Tournament held? Was that at The Nugget? I heard it was a great venue!

Feather Falls Casino in Oroville, CA held a very high-dollar event
several years ago, but I don't think they have done any since.

The Plaza in Vegas held two BCAPL events a few years ago. The Golden Nugget did something with the NCS. Thought the Sahara hosted the BCA 8 ball events before the Riv. Next year the Tropicana will join the list as will Bally's.

I think that I will start thanking casinos when they start refunding my money for busted hands and craps rolls.

Jamison, it might help if the host city was also mentioned. I say this because when I went looking for the Northern Lights Casino in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada, I discovered that the Northern Lights Casino in Walker MN has also hosted pool tournaments .... anyway, two for the list

Northern Lights Casino, Prince Albert Canada
Northern Lights Casino, Walker MN (edit : just noticed in the post above :thumbup: )

Lyn...Don't forget that the Tropicana hosted the Miller Lite events back in the 80's!

Harrahs tried to do a series of tournaments a few years ago, but quit after one event, which had a low turnout.

Also...4 Bears Casino in ND holds a big annual regional barbox event sponsored by Samsara. On a smaller scale...the 8-Ball Inn & Casino in Great Falls MT holds a lot of tournaments.

> Fitzgerald's in Tunica,Ms had a few pretty nice tournaments there,although there were rampant yet valid complaints about the condition of the tables at the last event. The word was that the tables were delivered by Valley,but set up by a crew of guys from a temp service,rather than set up by qualified people.

The year before that,in the finals Rafael Martinez ran 11 racks from the lag in a race to 15,handing Archer the worst loss I've ever seen him take at 15-4. Tommy D.

I loved the Nugget. I hope that something else can happen there just to give me a reason to be there.
