And really, do you really want to bother with receipts and s#it and have that on your mind when you trying to win this s#it?
Well, I was able to get it all sorted out – I showed up about an hour prior to the tourney & was able to buy in & then get the poker room manager to set me up with the WSOP12 rate. The lady at the front desk said they couldn't do it there & I had to go to the poker room... It was a bit of running around, and would have been easier had I taken care of it over the phone! Ahh well, live and learn. Good news is I'm all set for the WSOP rate. Thanks everybody for the assistance.
The bad news is I already busted out of the noon tourney. Eff. Never made anything much happen. Finally re-shipped from the BB with about 22 BBs with J-6… It folded to the SB and the lady there raised it to 2.5x which she had done every time it folded to her & she was in the button or SB. Figured she likely had nothing & I had a good reshipping stack.... She had 77 & called after tanking for a few minutes. Whoops. I guess I'm a donk - what can ya do.
So, looking at 7pm tourneys now… There's one here at Harrah's, a $180 + 30, 8K starting stack, 25 minute levels, or a $100 bounty over at the Borgata, $100+100+20, 12K starting stack, 20 minute levels, missing a few levels compared to Harrah's.... Hmmmmmmmm.......... Leaning towards staying at Harrah's...
I was surprised there was only 530 or so players in this - thought it'd be closer to 800 or 900...
