*5th Annual 2+2 WSOP Party - July 3rd/4th - ARIA Hotel and Casino*

Dates: Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th, 2010
Times: July 3rd @ 12 PM and July 4th @ 4 PM
Location: ARIA Hotel and Casino Banquet Area
RSVP: RSVP Thread

For the first time ever, the annual 2+2 gathering contains TWO days of partying!

Saturday, July 3rd, will be a cocktail party followed by at least one multi-table tournament (game and format TBA). Sunday, July 4th, features a dinner buffet, cocktails, and the legendary low-stakes mixed game extravaganza that we have been waiting an entire year for.

The party is being hosted by the brand-spankin' new ARIA Hotel and Casino inside CityCenter. Space is limited. Please RSVP as soon as possible!!

ARIA is graciously providing 2+2 members with a discounted room rate during the dates of June 27th, 2010 - July 17th, 2010. The rates are $99/Sunday through Thursday & $139/Friday and Saturday. The code to use to recieve your discount is: 2+2 ARIA Classic.

To book the room, contact Kathleen Paculan at 702-590-7232.

Here's a breakdown of what to expect:

Poker

ARIA will be providing us with 20 poker tables for our use during the party. On July 3rd, they will be used for a $200+25 buyin FLIPAMENT! (if you do not know, a flipament means everyone is all in every hand.)

There will also be an additional $100 MTT at 3PM. A normal one though, for those recovering from the aftermath of the flipament. Cash games and sngs will also be available on day 1!

On July 4th, starting at 4 PM, the party will be hosting all of the mixed game action we've been longing for since last year's party; be sure to buy-in for several racks because the action is guaranteed to be fast and furious! It's pretty likely that ARIA will be spreading any game you can think of, and probably some games that you have never even heard of!

Free Buffet & Drinks

If you don't have the nerve to "gamble it up" during the mixed game extravaganza, at least be sure to come for the free cocktail party, free hors devoures, and free buffet! There will be cocktails on both days of the party. The free buffet will be on Day 2 at 6 PM. Please RSVP. The amount of food available will be correlated with the number of RSVPs.

Two Plus Two Pokercast Live!!!

That's right, the Two Plus Two Pokercast will be casting live once again from the 2+2 WSOP party! There's no telling who is going to show up as a guest. In the past, the 2+2 party has attracted huge poker celebrities!

How do I RSVP?

You need to post in the official RSVP thread. Please RSVP as soon as possible. The final date for RSVPs is forthcoming.

Please, please, please RSVP. Only those who RSVP will be guaranteed admittance. You will be required to sign-in at the front desk. Don't worry, you can bring your friends, your spouse, or your girlfriend or boyfriend. You just need to RSVP for them.

Do NOT RSVP if you are under 21. You will not be let in the front door.

Final Notes

Remember to check back to this post frequently. More details will be emerging in the very near future. Please use this thread to ask any questions; I will update this post with more relevant information as it comes up. This year's party is sure to be the best one yet! See you there!

If you can tell the dealer the rules the game will be played.

The promotion code box on the ARIA website is too small for the code.

Do you have to clear hours in the poker room for the rate or is just being 2+2 enough?

If you're planning on playing poker during the event, I would imagine you qualify. Give her a call.

i just did a search for the weekend of the 3rd and the 4th. if you were to book today through the Aria website, it would be $299/night. so it's a pretty good deal. aria is literally brand new, they opened 4 months ago.

There's a greater than 50% chance that I will be in Vegas for this. It's hard to say for sure until a later date though.
