Poker rates are still available. You need to reference group code CP02L1 (that's a zero before the 2) when you book your room. This will qualify you for a rate of $119 wkdy and $159 wknd as long as you play, at least, one event (or average of 6 hours/day of cash games). A $15 resort fee will be added to all reservations. The resort fee entitles you to free internet access, newspaper, local and 800 phone calls, and access to the gym.
How will cashes be paid? Cash, direct to PokerStars account, wire, etc?
Cashes in the $5k? They will be paid in casino chips which you can cash at the cage. If you're referring to satellite cashes, you will have to refer to Stars.
i am going to play a bunch of sats for this. i think it's great that this tour is starting. any idea what kind of turnout is to be expected? i've never even played a tourney at Venetian so have no clue (not to mention one endorsed by PokerStars).
ME over the summer got almost 250 without stars sat'ing people in. That was a 5k as well. I'm definitely planning on trying to get to this.
This. If I had to make a professional guesstimate I would say 500+.
What day is the pokerstars party?
the beginning of the series? e.g. before event #1?
or before the Main?
(fingers crossed for)...both?
Today 03:27 PM
It is just before the ME. I'm not sure of the exact day, but I should know soon.

From Daniel's blog-
"I had a few meeting about the NAPT and other stuff before leaving, and am really excited about the NAPT. ESPN has proven to be "the spot" for the WSOP and it's had amazing success. The NAPT will be added to the ESPN roster and we have some amazing ideas that will make the NAPT very special, and very successful."
are the 6 $33r sats the same time everyday? i want to put them in my calendar. it looks like they are 14:30 EST, 16:30, 18:30, 20:30, 22:30 and 00:30? also is there going to be a 25 seat guar every Sunday at 18:00 EST up until the ME? (obv there is one this Sunday 1/17.) will they also run sun 1/24, 1/31, 2/7 and 2/14?
there need to be hotel refunds for vegas player who win packages, i'm not playing sats til there is one
They should always separate the buy-in from other expenses (hotel, etc.)...this way people can get an apt. with a bunch of friends, stay at a different hotel, or sleep in their ****&^ car and save the money, if they want.
im heading down on the 9th, im so excited as im a mid stakes full time grinder, i play online to play in live series like this, as most mid 20 year olds play online make money to become ballas, i play online poker to play live poker, and am so excited for this...see you all there...
sorry for the ramble,
