Marc please consider having a second poker event here in the states. Atlantic City or Las Vegas would be excellent sites…

This conference collides with my birthday.November 22, 2005 at 5:03 am #677049AnonymousInactive
I’ll be going to this event, but I wish I knew someone that lives in San Jose that could give me some information before I go. I’m gong to have an extra day and a half to sight see and this will be my first time going outside of the US except for the Bahamas so I’m kind of nervous about the language thing. hehe
I know that there ae a lot of casino managers that live there, but I can’t think of anyone off hand so any info. would be appreciated.
The Vegas conference was great so I’m looking forward to this!November 22, 2005 at 6:18 am #677061AnonymousInactive
any events in london happening? someone hook me up!November 22, 2005 at 7:05 am #677064AnonymousInactive
No worries GamTrak, pretty much everyone speaks english, especially in the populated areas like San Jose. It is their second language, so if you know a few basic words of spanish, you will be fine. Plan on taking taxis when you are in San Jose, they are extremely cheap — like 2-3 bucks to get anywhere in the city pretty much. There are no addresses BTW, so you will have to know the places you are going too, and it is helpful to know a major landmark near less popular places.
You don’t need to worry about converting your dollars into colones as most everyone will take american dollars, you get the best conversion rates by putting money down on the casino tables, unless you loose it gambling of course. Have fun and make it out to Jaco if your are looking for good time on the beach. I would recommend the Copa Cabana as a decent place to stay, it’s right on the main beach.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to the show, maybe one of my business partners will though.November 22, 2005 at 2:45 pm #677089AnonymousInactive
Hi webber286, thank you so very much for the information. I feel much better about going now. I think I can remember a phrase or two of Spanish. LOL
I spent hours on the net reading about the place and it sounds wonderful! I appreciate all of your information and now I’m REALLY looking forward to going. :chearleadNovember 22, 2005 at 3:17 pm #677100AnonymousInactivebart3k wrote:any events in london happening? someone hook me up!
