I have an email from them stating they will allow me to put my buyin for 1B towards another event. Fallsview is one of the worst run poker rooms in the world... not surprised their staff aren't on the same page.

Yes you can keep your car in Fallsview parking garage and leave it their for days and days and use your PAC card to get out for free. I recently saw a car that was clearly broken down in the same spot for about 6 weeks before they removed it.

1B is now sold out - You can still register and be put on the alternate list so the sooner the better if your planning on reg'ing so you get in earlier in the day.

Will the $2500 more likely end before an overlap or in the past is there usually an overlap?

There is always overlap. Anyone who makes day 3 of the 2500 will either be unavailable or have to late register the 5k.

Why do they do that? They are virtually the only organizers that overlap their tourneys, are they really that cheap in renting the halls or something? Versus lost income from ppl that want to play multi-tourneys.

Anyway, no kidding this is one of the most POORLY-RUN events/poker venues, it's only Wed and the phonelines are JAMMED. Can't even find out if the $275 super-satt on the 19th is soldout or not...anyone know?

Btw, are the blind structures the same for all 3 tourneys, just the starting stacks are different, so 100bbs for $1,100, 200bbs for $2,500 and 300bbs for $5,000, iirc?

Asking why Fallsview does dumb things feels irrelevant.

The most recent update was under 100 seats left as of 2/11, I'd be surprised if it wasn't close to sold out by now.

Blind structures are indeed exactly the same.

LOL, for sure. Like I said, I never saw events where there are overlaps, just insane.

Thanks for the structures confirmation.

update 1b 1100 sold out
1a less than 90 seats
2500 super sat sold out
some questions from the page so if you have a ticket do you get blinded off before check in? No are alternate seats 1st come 1st serve? You can pre-buy right now, or 1st come 1st serve. up to level 10
if paid by cc Pick up vouchers at the PAC Booth and get a PAC card at the same time.

ALL tournament series EVERYWHERE overlap events: WSOP, EPT, Aussie Millions, etc...And they have to for their interest and for ours as players...imagining busting an event and having to wait until that event ends to start a new one. IMO they should overlap more than they do to limit our travel costs; I don't like to have to wait a full day to play the next event. It's not a bad thing if your that deep in an event and have to late reg or miss the next event because your busy winning a bunch of $$

As I informed Mike, it's better not to commit to paying for a 1B Alternate Receipt until you're out of 1A. An Alternate Receipt guarantees you late registration to a sold-out event, and there is no 100 limit for Alternates this year.

It's pretty aggravating, these dates were perfect to do the events in reverse order this time, since the 1k always sells out it would've been fine to run during a weekday. Already proven to work at Seminole.

Friday-Opening day, $550 mega
Saturday-$5k event, $250 mega
Sunday-$5k restart at 12, $2500 at 2pm
Monday-$5k day three/FT, $2500 day two, $125 mega
Tuesday-$2500 day three/FT, $1k 1A
Wednesday-1k 1B
Thursday-1k day two/$1500 shootout
Friday-1k day three/FT, $1500 shootout FT

Maybe I should've been more clear. This is just a small event w/ only 3 main tourneys, why they overlap is beyond me. To be fair, this would probably only pose a problem if someone FT's and wants to play the next one. Of course major ones like WSOP will have many overlaps, or else it would be a 2 year event (just exaggerating but you know what I mean)!

Btw, what the heck is the 'Shoot Out' event?

They don't have the space to do both of these events on the same day. I would push the 2500 back a day in your schedule-if you make day 2 you can't play 1A of the 1k, and if you make day 3 you can't play 1B.

A Shootout is basically like a sit n go. You have to win your table to move on. For example, let's say there are 81 entries and it's a 9-handed tournament. The 9 winners of each table would move on to the final table and play each other. I'm not sure if this particular event is 6-max, 9-max or 10-max, but same concept applies.
