Wound up booking Borgata since the rates were very similar and Borg is obviously nicer. Still kind of pricey for 11/30 and 12/1 though.

Re: 2012 WSOP Circuit Harrah's Atlantic City - Nov 29 -Dec 10

Does anyone know the structure for the $180 + $30 Nightly 7PM MTT's? Is it the same as the $365/$580/$1,125 NLH Ring Events just with less starting chips?

Call and use WSOP 12... rates are 29/99/189, much lower than online and w/ my TR card (although my card is probably empty).

Is this tournament series well run? I usually only go down to Borgata for their tournament series, which are run second to none. Can anyone advise how it's been in the past?

It's no Borgata, but as far as WSOPc events go, this is a decent stop. There were a few very very bad dealers, but mostly good ones, and the floor switched out the bad dealers at the end of the tourneys so that the better ones were dealing when it was most important. The floor staff did a decent job. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

+1 to this, I think they've done a pretty good job the past couple of years running the tournaments. As for sub-par dealers, it's a likely possibility at any larger event, so hope you run good and get good ones. Most are pretty decent/good.

It may not be of much importance to you but since January, 2005 when Harrah's Atlantic City hosted the first ever WSOP circuit event (where I played in a couple of daily tourneys), I have observed that they haven't spent a penny to improve/upgrade the third-floor ballroom/poker tournament room.
Compared to other much more attractive rooms, I find Harrah's AC to be just generally drab. But the one thing that bothers me most (as it will nearly all middle-aged or older players) is the horrible, inadequate lighting. Depending on your table location, you may need a flashlight to see your freaking cards.

Lol yeh i remember the awful lighting last year. I was on one of these tables that had a broken light over it and we complained to the td who had us move to another table. The td's were mostly helpful/friendly altho obv theyre not going to be as proffesional as others in the business, id still say it was mostly a well-run series. Its no borgata, but its not chester either.

Totally agree with Grimerat & Jim, John A, the TD runs a nice tourney. I'll be there a bunch. But they need to do something about that lighting........ WhaDaHell........ LOL

Crossing my fingers only a few bad dealers.... I know it's hard to have all great dealers and Chris Q and the gang........

See you all there..........
