Re: Grand Poker Series 2017 at Golden Nugget LV, May 30-July 3

Good to see more non-HE events back in the lineup, but IMO the timing is a bit curious in some cases:

6/7 360 HORSE (day 1 of WSOP 1.5k HORSE)
6/11 250 PLO8 (day 1 of DSE 600 PLO8)
6/21 570 PLO (day 1 of WSOP 1.5k PLO)
6/22 570 HORSE (day 1 of WSOP 3k HORSE)

The PLO8 & PLO events are ~40% of the BIs of the corresponding event on the same day. I don't see the benefit of two matching/similar events cannibalizing each other.

Few good comps over the 2 weeks I'm staying there, so I'll set fire to some money...

I wonder if that 5-31 $250 event is a typo? A HORSEament with no limits!?

This is very odd. In the past these events were held 1 or 2 days before the WSOP. Was planning to play the WSOP HORSE event on 6/7 and wanted play a "warm up" the day or two before. This series offered the perfect warm up events. Too bad they changed the timing but it might have something to do with the ARIA offering a HORSE event on 6/6 for under $500

Are structures posted anywhere? And rake breakdown?

Thanks

Yes it's official. They tweeted it (or allowed Kevmath to do the official tweet release), via @Kevmath and @GNLVpoker the other day.

Full link inside the Tweet.

GN held this event last year during their main event. It is a private event, players have won their seats through bar poker leagues all over the country.

I imagine the cash games will be pretty good around the time this event is running.

Structure sheets for all events would be useful.

Re: Grand Poker Series 2017 at Golden Nugget LV, May 30-July 3

Anybody have any experience with their ME? I played in a daily a few years back and enjoyed it. I've heard that their rake is worse but tbh I can't back that up with any actual knowledge. Either way, their ME coincides with the time I'll be out there and matches pretty close to my MTT range with the highest guarantee so I'm hoping it has a good reputation!

Played it a few times, and thought it was a good tournament.

Nice! Hard to argue with a $500k guar. Everything else I've seen has been 100k-300k

I played the main event last year. I liked the structure (25k starting stack, 40 minute levels). Long tournament, first day was like 14 hours I think but you get plenty of play time and blinds start at 25/50 if I recall. Ended up 750k gtd.

ME last year--great venue, great structure and mostly slower/older dealers. The field was not as soft as you would expect, a lot of familiar faces.

Moved my summer dates back a week just to play it again, one of the best values of the summer.
