While playing UTH at Showboat yesterday, I asked the pit boss about the rumor of Showboat becoming an entertainment hotel and CET buying Revel as their 4th gaming prop and she told me that's not flying, but that Showboat was closing down June 15th. My mouth dropped at the news. I was seeing another table games manager later in the evening and asked her, and she was very taken by the news, wanting to know exactly who told me. She seemed really upset that someone would tell me that or that I even knew. But like a good company player she said that she hasn't read anything about them closing showboat. However, this week was her last week at the property and she was moving to Caesars. Take it for what it is, hearsay, but it's what I heard and thought I'd pass it along. I sure hope this is false and Showboat doesn't close. I really like gaming there. They have good VP for AC and a great choice of table games for lower mins. I did notice Starbucks is closed, the Crossroads is no longer 24 hours and some other things that are being 'overlooked' as indicators of that news being real. There was a great crowd there Sunday, but Monday was empty, still more than the Taj which was a ghost town.
