The buy-in for each event will be $100+20, which can be paid to the Atlantic Club the morning
of each event, or prepaid at the Atlantic Club beginning on Friday.
All events are NO REBUY events. (This does NOT mean that TOM GOODWIN is not invited...he
is. It means that he, and everyone else, will have to find a way to win these tournaments
with only the original buy-in chips!)
There will also be a $25 ATLARGE registration fee to cover the overhead costs. The
ATLARGE rates for rooms at the Atlantic Club will be $75.00 (plus tax) on Friday and Saturday, and $55.00
(plus tax) on other nights.
What is "ATLARGE"?
ATLARGE is an annual gathering in Atlantic City of poker players who originally "met"
and/or still participate on the Internet newsgroup rec.gambling.poker (rgp). We get
together in different poker friendly locations throughout the US during the year
to have fun and PLAY POKER. Our biggest annual meeting is called BARGE and it is
held in Las Vegas in August. ATLARGE is the Atlantic City version, held in March
of every year.
ATLARGE stands for the ATLantic city Annual Rec.Gambling Excursion. Historically,
attendance at ATLARGE is second only to BARGE. Last year, over 150 r00lerz from all
over the planet brought the good times to Atlantic City for four days of fun and
p0cker. ATLARGE 2013 will be held at the fabulous Atlantic Club, in Atlantic City,
How Can You Participate in ATLARGE?
EVERYONE IS WELCOME! But because we all originally met over the Internet, the only
rule for participation in any of our events is that you must register over the Internet.
Since you're reading this, you've already come to the right place. If you fill out
the registration information below, you're in! Then, all you have to do is pay for
the registration fee, and show up and have fun.
Unofficial ATLARGE Events
The ATLARGE banquet will be held at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 9 at the Atlantic Club. No smoking will be allowed at the banquet.
The SMOKER DINNER will be held at the Atlantic City Bar & Grill. This fabulous dinner will
take place on Thursday night, March 7 at 8:00pm. The SMOKER dinneris now SPONSORED, exclusive of all alcohol. Everyone will be
responsible for their own alcohol, but the dinner itself is paid by our generous
sponsor. Smoking is ALLOWED, so a special "up-wind" end of the table is reserved
for non-smokers. Please consider attending this wonderful event. The food is very
good, the cigars are excellent, and the company is the best! To attend, all you have
to do is show up at the restaurant. If you need a ride, there will be several cars
heading from the Atlantic Club to the restaurant about 7:30 on Thursday. We gather near the
HIGH SIDE PODIUM at the Atlantic Club about 7:00pm so if you want to attend and need a ride
you can find it there. Otherwise, you'll find us at The Atlantic City Bar & Grill by 8:00pm.
Everyone is invited.
The Atlantic Club will spread cash games at all limits, including an ARG favorite, the $7.50-$15.00
"pink chip" holdem game! Baby PL is also available, if there is sufficient interest.
The Atlantic Club will be providing our group with a r00ling HOSPITALITY SUITE. A great
place to relax and meet other r00lerz and enjoy an adult beverage or two!!
Unfortunately, for those planning to fly, ATLANTIC CITY is not terribly easy to reach.
There is an airport just nine miles from Atlantic City, but regularly scheduled flights
there are usually BRUTALLY EXPENSIVE. Once at the Atlantic City airport, cabs are
readily available. The PHILADELPHIA airport is 50 miles from Atlantic City, with
regular train service for only $8. Pick up the SEPTA R1 train directly in front of
the Philadelphia airport terminals, and take the train to 30th Street Station in
Philadelphia (three stops after leaving the airport). Change trains at 30th Street
for NJ Transit for Atlantic City. NJ Transit will drop you off at the Atlantic City
train station 9 blocks off the boardwalk. Your NJ Transit ticket includes no-wait
bus service to all casinos when you exit the train. Schedules for these trains are
You are well advised to check the train schedules in advance, lest you be destined

The Atlantic Club has set aside a block of rooms for us at the rates of $75.00 (plus tax) on Friday and
Saturday, and $55.00 (plus tax) on other nights.
The Atlantic Club has set aside rooms for ATLARGE registrants beyond the rooms they normally
make available to poker players, to insure that we all have access to these reduced
rate rooms. You MUST be registered for ATLARGE to be eligible. Once you register
here for ATLARGE, room reservation information will be sent to you. ***IF
YOU BOOK A ROOM AS AN "ATLARGE" MEMBER AND DO NOT REGISTER FOR ATLARGE, YOUR RESERVATION
WILL BE *CANCELED* WITHOUT NOTICE***
Please note that rooms are NOT unlimited. So, if you are a regular poker player at
the Atlantic Club and are already eligible for their poker rate, please make your reservation
as you normally would, WITHOUT mentioning ATLARGE. This will help save our designated
rooms for others.

list by clicking here. In addition to the rec.gambling.poker newsgroup, lots of us
trade insults on this list. Oh, and we also keep informed about ATLARGE type stuff
here too. Late registration details will also be announced there.
