If you've never attended a big handicapping tournament in Vegas, it's about time imho!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

The guy in the powder blue shirt in the middle is way too focused on that big sandwich...

I'm no detective, but I'm guessing that he is a regular attendee at these gatherings. Looks like fun.

All I can think is, "What does that room smell like?" :shock:
I'm thinking nervous sweat, cigar smoke and day-old undies. :P
Sorry...I'm sure all the handicappers on THIS forum are impeccably groomed. ;)

Currently in third place, Barb finds your comments a tad offensive!

Nice to see a 25-year old waiter near the top of the standings!

Imagine a $800,000 payday for him, that's a life changing score!

70 players made the cut to play today from the original 700.
In the top 12, three of 'em are women, congrats!

In a separate event.....Ed DeRosa, representing TwinSpires.com, won the Tito's $10,000 Charity Challenge with a final score of $63.40 from $2 Win and Place bets in the same eight mandatory races used for the NHC. Matt Carothers of TVG made a late move to get second with $54.60 and Eclipse Award-winning writer Sean Clancy of ST Publishing checked in third with $47.40.

The $10,000 prize pool will be shared between three different causes – the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, official charity of the NHC ($5,000); the Ronald McDonald House of Cincinnati, the nonprofit designated by DeRosa ($2,500); and another nonprofit still to be determined by title sponsor Tito's Handcrafted Vodka ($2,500).
