    Brantford-All Tournaments Are Cancelled for July & August

    Was there last night and it's up on the monitor. They are citing low volume of staff and players during the summer months as the reason.

    What a shame. Where do you go for live, reasonably priced, weekend tournaments now ?

    this really sucks. for me this was the shortest drive for live tournaments. Rama and Port Perry take me over 90 mins to get to and I don't enjoy the drives.

    Hope they eventually put live tables at Woodbine. That would be ideal.

    Want to but can't this weekend. Once school year is over I'm hopefully going to be playing a lot more.

    Correct their tournaments are decent, but not for Canadians. Problem is the withhold 30% of any winnings and it's not net of buyin.
    In other words if the buyin is $100. then you win a minimum payout of $140. they keep $42. making you a net loser of $2. That doesn't even include rake, so it makes it very hard if not impossible to overcome both rake and withholding.
    Border is not an issue assuming you have a passport and no record.
    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    Seneca withholding 30 on any winnings sucks.
