    I think it just sucks when they won't say why! Is it lack of dealers, covid, lack of players, what??

    I recall at least one VMB'er already planned his trip to coincide with the tournament. What a bummer. And I think he's arriving from overseas.

    My guess would be because of covid. The Golden Arm Tournaments draw lots of players and they typically are wall to wall and cheek to cheek.

    Too bad. Hopefully next year will be better.

    It was supposed to be the weekend of Sept 23-26,
    and it was a major pain to find and book a DT room for that weekend.

    they were really hyping it like it was definitely going to happen with the Hawaii Craps shooter guy on youtube.
    heck, Pompsie even just did a youtube video on the Cal (got a suite upgrade) and was pushing the Golden Arm thing..

    :eek:shakes fist at Boyd for this relatively late cancellation.:mad:

    They realized it was NASCAR weekend and wanted to give their employees the opportunity to go see Kyle Larson win....again.

    There's also apparently a Raiders game and UFC fight going on in town that weekend.
    Not looking forwards to the weekend limits, even DT..
    Cal was promising $10 min for Golden arm. :eek::(:mad:
