So my little drummer boy son is a big ACDC fan, and an even bigger beatles fan. So on the Thursday of Superbowl weekend, I'm going to tell him I'm going to drive him to school. Instead, I'm driving

Yeah, I dunno Arp. I just am not really as rich as I was last year (not that I ever was), and going to Vegas just ends up with huge degen swings and drinking, bad decisions, etc.This frees me up to go to Pittsburgh if necessary, go visit my Dad, which I promised him, and my Mom is coming to Ottawa in the middle of June.I hate live poker, so it's def not a business trip or anything, so I'm just keeping it semi-low key, I guess.

I recently scored big in a hockey pool, so I got some "blow it in Vegas" cash, or else I was gonna be low key-ish as well.Im with the same buddy again for work, then some other friends coming down on the 9th for the wknd.You'll have to let me know which night your really gonna be degen, drinking, and especially making the bad decisions.....I like those nights/mornings the best.

Shaneekwa (THIS SPELLING IS DEFINITELY NOT EVEN CLOSE) was a solid 5, which is probably pretty awesome for 5 am super discount Vegas diners.edit - lol @ me pretending that I remember
I was just about to diss you, then you added the edit. Laneekwa (what the hell was that broads name?), was a solid 7, day or night. At 5am, she was like a 9!was it Wynn or Encore? I cant believe I didnt sit in that spot. :club:

are they comp at Wynn? I really wanted to stay at Encore or Wynn this trip. Or at least Aria. Looks like we'll be back at MGM again though. Gonna see what I can find last minute.the one weekend your there is my show, 50,000 attendees....makes it hard to get great rates/comp around the Sands Expo I think, at least for lowballers like us.So we usually end up at MGM.

One night at Wynn was comped, $199 for Sunday, $99 for the other. I didn't read the promo thing right, I thought I just had to buy one for $199 and get 2 comped, but I guess I suck. Prob woulda been cheaper to stay the Sunday at PH, but I didn't think of that on the phone. Ray will hate me now that I figured it out tho.

F it, Wynn's great, and thats still a very good rate.I just drifted off for a minute imagining what/where/who I would have done with that $5k....

Ok, dumb question, but please recall Im here for the FC and not the P. Im a poker novice, and never really read any other forums but hockey.Are there any online satellites for the smaller events at the WSOP? Obv lots of ways to get into main event, but do any of the sites offer sats into the smaller buy in stuff?for example:Tue Jun 8- $5k NLWed Jun 9- $2k LFri Jun 11- $2.5k 6handed LId like to play in these tourneys, but only representing dead money. So, I dont mind spending $100? to win something to get in, but I can't justify that kind of buyin, when I could be spending that money on other Vegas entertainment. Any thoughts?Are there satellites for these kind of tourneys at Rio/WSOP?I had heard there was, but never noticed any while I was there, usually just played the cash games or late night small tourneys.Thanks in advance.

I'm not aware of any online qualifiers for smaller events.However, the RIO has a giant room dedicated to satellites. How it works is you buy into a 10-person sit and go. they have a number of buyins, from as low as $60ish dollars. The winner of the sit and go gets a tournament chip for the value of the prize pool - rake. they can use that chip to buy into any wsop event.Last year, I played a $125 sat, won, and got a 1k tourney chip + I think $150 in cash. They also do main event super satellite for $250ish.
