This is one of the dumbest posts I've ever read.

This isn't about Phil Ivey. This is about not becoming one of the thousands of MTT "pros" that have failed over the past 30 years.

If you live in Vegas or plan on leaving as soon as you bust, you're paying up to a 15% vig just to play the satellite. If we ignore situations like that, we won't be professional poker players anymore because pretty much everyone will be broke.

All we're asking for in this case is that we get a reasonable deal on a hotel room that makes the trip worthwhile. I don't think that's too much at all. If you had a casino in the town you live in, and they forced you to pay 900$ to stay in a hotel room down the street from you, you'd probably find an issue with it too.

I'm gonna spend 1500$ playing satellites. Most of that money comes from cash games and fish type players and I do so in the hope that I'll hit a big score one day.

When I play a satellite and there are 7 online pros at my starting table, I just shrug and play my game. I'm rolled for $700 dollar satellites but I certainly would be better off doing something else with the money. I could take my a girl to miami for 3 days, stay at fountaine blue and spend like 2k. I know I'd get something out of that

I play the satty's in hopes of parlaying that into a big score, **** I'd take a min-cash. I realize that it's a long shot and since I play about 5 tournaments a year over 2.5k buyin, I may never realize my goal, but thats okay. I wanna have fun and play.

If I make better hands then guys like phil ivey, charder, Zee justin, Ill beat them. If they make better hands then me, they will win. Yea I will get outplayed and be outclassed if it all breaks even but tournament poker isn't about the cards breaking even.
Everyone still gets 2 cards and nobody wins a tournament without running good.

Survive and Run good that's the key

Hearing a bunch of professionals talk about room rates and complaining just makes me laugh. You're professional poker players and this wasn't so lucrative 10 years ago.

All you guys admire Phil Ivey, who was around when it wasn't so glamorous

You really think if he heard you all talking at the starting table about "how its bull**** us vegas guys dont get the $900 t$"

he'd think anything but

"wow what a bunch of little jerkoffs, I used to sleep under the boardwalk, not have electricity in my house and I made myself to the best in the world by grinding 16 hours a day on the felt and now im sitting next to a bunch of internet kids who'd never be where they are without the internet and they're complaining about the site that has set them up with a living and made they're ascent in the possible and I gotta hear them bitch over $900"

and then he'd give the "thought you had kings full face"

i'll steer the thread back in the right direction. if anyone is wondering, i kinda like the pizza place at the venetian. i know if you're lazy/like pizza a lot, that stuff kinda matters. it gets the sketchy1 seal of approval. way better than the crap they had at PCA (although the marina pizzeria is the nuts down there).

I second that motion. The only thing I don't like about it is that they don't always have the same types of pizza cooked. So sometimes you go in there, and they'll have 2 or 3 really weird pizzas, and that's all, and it sucks.

Grand Lux Cafe is the best casino cafe in vegas and the Mario Batali place upstairs is great at not too outragoeous prices.

I mean I totally understand why everyone is upset about the hotel issue. But, it is possible that this business partnership between PokerStars and The Venetian is the only reason that this event is taking place.

Vegas isn't like other cities that PS holds major tournaments in. I think most people in this forum can probably get a room somewhere in Vegas for $0/night (either staying at a friends place or through comps). I just checked and I could book at room at 3 different Harrah's properties for free for that week (whoops WSOP tilt pit action), but I will still play the sat's and do what I can to support this tour. If this thing really gets going, I'm sure PokerStars will do what's right in places where the majority of the field doesn't need the accommodation.

Looks like stars will be running seat only sats at some point since their is a seat-only qualifiers section on the NAPT part of the events page, and the hotel issue can be taken care of by buying in direct and then you will get $t for any sats won, seems kinda simple to me.

QFT! I love that place. The crust is just right and the Italian sausage is the nuts.

Stars---

why no better sats into the $700/25 guar? how about more $8r, $10r, $11r, $22r ??

also how about $22, $33, $55 freeze-out turbo MTT sats into the $700? (like for the sun mil)

'better' is subjective.

As for more variety, happy to take a look for next week. What type that's not available at present is on your mind?

I personally like non-rebuy satellites. Right now you only have the $80 which seems to only run once a day. Why not add more of these and/or a $40-$50 sat?

Also the rebuys are almost all in the $1-$5 range and usually only award 1 or 2 seats. I know alot of people would prefer more in the $10-$20 range, besides the one $27.50R.
