Thanks for the tip.


Edit: Actually, **** you guys for telling me that. I was going to unreg for everything due to connection problems, now I don't have any, I'm sure you cost me a few K.

The 10K chips are not used normally. In either deepstack events or daily Venetian events. Which makes their inclusion in this event (considering 5K and 25K chips are available)... an --interesting-- decision.

All I can think to offer as an explanation... is that this is the largest number of chips that have ever been in play... and since 25K denominations could not be used to build starting stacks... The answer may be that they simply did not have enough 5K chips to build the 890 stacks.

I'm confident that the Venetian staff will fix this issue in the future... and I think if this is the biggest issue in a first time event of this magnitude... then they are doing very well...

Strange ruling:

From Pokernews: You Make the Call

Justin Smith found himself at the river on a {4-Clubs} {2-Hearts} {10-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {5-Clubs} board. Smith was the first player to act, but his lone opponent bet 11,100 out of turn. A floor supervisor was summoned to the table to handle the situation.

"What happens to that bet?" Smith asked the floor.

"Just make your action as if that bet isn't out there," replied the floor, "and then we'll handle that."

This refusal to divulge information flummoxed Smith and drew protests from at least two other players at the table. Neither was involved in the hand but felt that Smith was entitled to the information as to what would happen to the bet whether he checked or bet.

After a few minutes, the floor changed his ruling and decided to divulge the information. He told Smith that if he checked, the bet would stand. If he bet more than 11,100, the bet would come back. Ultimately, Smith decided to check-fold.

In discussions after the hand with one of the aggrieved players, the floor laid out his position. "We're not going to make a ruling so that a player can figure out how to angle-shoot the situation." This begs the question of whether the angle-shoot already occurred when Smith's opponent bet out of turn.

And as for Smith's opponent, he too had a beef after the hand. His complaint was that the floor made a ruling, then changed it two minutes later (without any assistance from other supervisors) solely because several players disagreed.

All in all an odd hand, but Smith didn't win the pot

TBH, none of the participants in this event are newbies and first time event runners. They should have thought about this weeks ago. They have had 2 months to prepare and chip denominations and colors are pretty important in every tourney. I have no doubt Stars would have coughed up a few bucks to have new chips made in time for the event. This is a high profile event, lots of runners, publicity and is sponsored by the biggest and most successful online company. such excuses are somewhat unacceptable.
