More Space at DCC? - 02-05-2019, 07:18 AM

Just returned from DCC. Seems like a whole lot of renovations going on at the hotel/casino. Anyone know if any of this will result in more table space for DCC? They sure could use it.

I doubt it. It looked like they were remodeling some of the shopping/dining areas.

They are moving the Casino to land. New laws in place that it doesn't have to be on the water. So the expansion is to replace the floating Casino. I was told there would be a food court added.

It doesn't matter how many tables you have.

It's more about waiting for the draw !!!

Gonna need more days if any other events are added.

I was told that they do not plan any more convention/meeting space. The current event fills up the hotel, so they cannot sell any more room nights unless they build a bigger hotel. Considering the location and the options in Louisville, I suspect that DCC is the largest event at the Horseshoe. There's no point in building more room that will be used for just one week per year.

There will be four more tables available next year.

Or they could fix the tournament format (still with buy-backs) so that they keep all of the tables busy. If you ever see empty tables and players waiting for a table, either the TD or the format is broken.

One of these years they will wise up and institute the "Grady" rule for the One Pocket and watch what a huge difference that will make! They almost did it this year but got talked out of it by a few very vocal opponents. Too bad, once more one big cluster f'ck in the scheduling of matches.

Yes, no more 14.1 Challenge at DCC.

Various things happened so that the organizers no longer wanted to put in the time and money.

You can make it happen by raising $20k for the added money, showing up and putting in the required 200+ hours of work. Assuming that the DCC would accept new management for the event.

Is there a reason they couldn't just remove the bracket portion of the 14.1 challenge? Pay out the top 3 or 4 runs and don't worry about a bracket that will never get finished.

A 14.1 bracket doesn't really make sense to me anyways as you're not really playing against the player, you're playing against the table.

Bob, I have a few ideas.
1. no match tournament for the final 8, just the daily awards.
2. no score keepers required, each player must score their own runs.
(like golf honor system)
3. only need someone to manage the table assignments.
4. players must volunteer an hour or two of their time to help run it.
5. no need for 20 grand added. (most players would play for a 5 dollar bill).

Would you be wiling to help me, or someone keep this running ?

Let me hear your thoughts,
thanks.

Yes, but it's also true that the nine ball event used to have races to seven, which made far more sense for an event with 400 players. The exact same players were succeeding back then, too. The foolish increase to race to nine a few years ago is also one of the reasons they always fall behind now.

I feel I have spent enough winter vacations in southern Indiana, so you are on your own.

I think the added money is important and the players will not be willing to put in volunteer time, but I could be wrong.
