Re: General Vegas Discussion/Questions/ETC - Post your quick questions here

how much roll should I need for the July 3rd 2p2er get together game? I suppose it's gonna be swingy as most of you guys are LAGs and are gonna be drunk so I assume there are gonna be tons of 3bet/4bet/chips flying around.

Billy,

$200-$300 should be sufficient.

Hey, I really really really want to avoid the drug places in Vegas, what casinos are renowned for selling them so that I can avoid going anywhere near them.

thanks

There's a place called Blondies on the Miracle Mile shops @ Planet Hollywood. It's a sports bar with hot waitresses and seemingly free booze between 4 & 6pm. Don't quote me on this though, I remember reading this on another thread.

I don't know how great these deals are but may save someone a little money if they are planning the trip in the last minute:

Re: General Vegas Discussion/Questions/ETC - Post your quick questions here

My bank said I could use my debit card in a casino as a purchase and they would give me cash for it. Has anyone ever done this and how did it go? I am talking to them about just increasing my ATM limit but from what I can tell I can get more money this way. I may just end up doing the wire though if that isn't too tough.

A lock is going to cause any maids/hotel staff to want to steal even more because they'll know something valuable is in there. Just roll it up in your underwear and throw it at the bottom of your suitcase. Its not like they're going to go looking through your stuff.

Nextel cup is nascar right? Fa cup is English soccer. I don't even remember posting the bar question I was so drunk I found an English pub called the crown and anchor.

On to my next question, any casinos that are completely smoke free, the passive smoking wafting into poker rooms is ****ing with my asthma?

Re: General Vegas Discussion/Questions/ETC - Post your quick questions here

So I want to play in the first NL Hold'em event (WSOP event #2) for $1500. I'm flying in the day before, so if I just get to the RIO the morning before the tourney starts will I have trouble getting a seat?

Re: General Vegas Discussion/Questions/ETC - Post your quick questions here

also, are players boxes always handled through the poker room or some other way? how would a place like Venetian or PH feel about me getting a box and then not playing there much. I'm asking this because these places are conveniently located and I've heard at Bellagio/Wynn it's very hard to get a box.

Where is the best shooting range?

And also can me and my mates bring a photo/poster of a "friend", who we hate, to shoot various massive guns at?

If you have a total rewards diamond card you can get a box at the main cage without any hassle at all.

You do not want to this. The fees will be huge - I forget how much but I think maybe 10% or higher. If you are a high roller in the casino (not poker but other gambling) some casinos will cover the fee. I recommend a wire transfer.

The two that get the most press (for doing things like renting automatic weapons, buying t-shirts and then shooting holes in them and so on) are

Las Vegas Gun Range & Firearm Center southwest of the Strip.

The Gun Store, Inc. in Henderson.

As for your custom target, you could always call and ask.

Thank you. Will I be able to just buy into events using a credit card? At least up to a certain buyin? I am going to contact my bank about a wire either way. May just end up carrying cash to but that doesn't feel optimum. Where do people put it when they are on the plane?
