Not saying you are lying but there is no such thing as a "private game" in a vegas casino

Darren is a south african dude, won a boat load in the PLO games at Aussie millions. Matt would be the best PLO player from Australia. I would be pretty confident that is actually the real game list.

Thanks for the update.

As for the people saying this is a bad post, I just like to hear about the big games in vegas this time of year as I find it entertaining who is up big and who is losing etc

not quite a private game as there was a waiting list but they did pretty much shut down at one point and made it tough for players to get in, starting to fill up again now. antonius has just joined.

Re: 500/1K/2K PLO Cash Game Going in Vegas

from Ashton Griffins Twitter:

"Won the 2nd largest pot of my career playing 1k/2k PLO today.

6-handed. I start with 275k. Patrik is button 2k straddle. Guy who had been up 72 hours straight makes it 7k. He has like 600k.

I make it 25k with 5678. Pat folds, 72h calls. 53k in pot. 234r he c/r my 38k. I go allin, he calls. I'm up against A23x. Run once for 550k."

Re: 500/1K/2K PLO Cash Game Going in Vegas

No reason to delete this thread. This is highly relevant especially now that high stakes on ftp/stars has died down a bit. Two days ago it was 200/400. yesterday it was 200/500/1k. Today i saw one person say they were playing 500/1k/2k and another saying 1k/2k/4k. This is super sick, especially when it's going at the Rio not Ivey or Bobby's Room.

Re: 500/1K/2K PLO Cash Game Going in Vegas

whats with all the idiots insulting the thread? NVG is getting nearly unreadable with morons criticizing every little thing.

Interesting thread, I and Im sure a lot of others are interested in hearing about the big games going on during the WSOP. Its no different than the high stakes online thread that is always on the front page. Thanks to those providing updates.

Nice pot for Ashton, he must have loved seeing what he was up against when they got it all in.

+ Another for interest.

This would fall under gossip and news, so IMO, this is not only the place for this but this is what nvg was intended for. Thank you OP and others for updates, to trolls and crybabies, nobody cares. Not all of us can make it out there. If this was a baseball forum and somebody talked about a game, would you go OMG baseball players playing baseball fapfapfap? You might, but it would be just as dumd.
