The funny thing is Venetian will be dead again in February as it was in November and December surrounding the big October and January high hand promotions. The screwed up nature of it though is that the promotion Venetian is running this month (despite the fact itís 800$ less than high hand) is statistically about 9 times more likely for any given player to hit but people only see the monetary amount. Not the odds.

Re: Vegas monthly promo rooms and nit crushing thread

I like the high hand promotion because it forces the nits to play hands. Random table drawings allow them to just sit and take up a seat.

Re: Vegas monthly promo rooms and nit crushing thread

Will be in Vegas next week and was looking at Flamingos Freeroll as an option for Friday. I have some questions I hope you all can answer.

1: How many people normally enter the free roll?

2: What time does the bubble normally burst? I fly out Friday afternoon and if I wont reach the bubble I will spread my play elsewhere.

3: What time does the tournament normally finish?

Re: Vegas monthly promo rooms and nit crushing thread

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong as it's been a few weeks since I played it, and I don't pay that much attention to the time; my schedule is pretty flexible.

Average number of runners is around 100, plus or minus 20, with the standard deviation around 8.

The bubble goes off a little more than 2 hours in, so 12:30-ish. Final payout is around 4 to 4 1/2 hours in.

Thanks. I should just barely be able to make it then as my flight is at 4:30. IF anything I will just begin going all in with sub optimal hands near the end if I am running out of time.

I agree that it's nice to see promo money going to fish over nits on average.

But I don't recall seeing many nits open up their game to actually chase the high hands much.

I did hear flamingo switched to 9max tables, that is a nice thing to punish the nits a little bit. Not to mention relieve some of the discomfort issues in that room.

Looks like 45. My seat is as far away from the tourney board as you can get.

Re: Vegas monthly promo rooms and nit crushing thread

I went out in 82nd, second whiff in a row after Harrahs on Thursday. 12 hours is the min. 15 hours will still get you +$3000 chips. I don't know how it works beyond that.

Re: Vegas monthly promo rooms and nit crushing thread

Coming to Vegas March 12-26. Get in late on the 12th and prob won't start my grind til Wed 3/13.

Would like to play 2 free rolls the first week and 2 or 3 the second week.

Staying at MGM the first half of trip and Excalibur the second half.

Suggestions for which promos to shoot for?

Tentatively thinking I would try for Flamingo and Ballys the first week. Second week will be more flexible as I'll have Monday and Tuesday to be able to grind.

Thanks in advance for the feedback...

Weds 13th and Thurs play Bally's. Get to 12 or 15 hours. Fri/sat flamingo or Harrah's. Sat night Bally's FR.

From there continue on with flamingo or Harrah's, whichever you started on Friday, and decide if you want to go for both or just one.
