Out in a hour in the $1500. Folded TPGK 3 times, had a blast. Would it kill them to give us a few more starting chips?

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

I lasted less than an orbit today. Took a suboptimal line vs Yosh Nakano even though I dont think I can ever fold with such shallow stacks, then busted AQ < 62o two hands later raising UTG and getting calls from sb and bb. T64r, they check and i just shove my last 800 into 550, which in retrospect probably looked tilty. i think i should have just bet like 375 and gotten the rest in since i'm 100% sure the sb and bb called pf without thinking about my stack size.

I'm cleaning my room at my house today and I uncovered my n64 and two controllers, but no mario kart. the only games i have for the 64 are f-zero x, international superstar soccer 98 (my favorite soccer game of all time, although I dont think I've played any soccer games since), wwf no mercy as well as wcw/nwo revenge, 1080 snowboarding, and perfect dark (no goldeneye, no idea what happened to my copy).

i also have a gamecube with 4 controllers, and I do have mario kart double dash. i also have a copy of mario golf somewhere.

Is he the guy I tried to bluff? Would be just like basebaldy to have KK there. Congrats on the money and good luck.

Got 32nd place. Money started 50th place.

Layne Flack cracked my AA's in a preflop all-in.

Had a great time- almost got deep.

Next time.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Hey guys,

Thanks to all of you for making this thread so great and informative. I really do appriciate each and every one of you, and I hope you have a great time while you're in Vegas. I wanted to ask a question, but I didn't think it was worthy of its own thread, so I'll just ask here: What are the side games like there? Are the tourneys taking up the main room or have they opened up the second room(forget the name of it)? Are there a wider variety of games being spread due to the tourney being in town(for example I'd be interested in a PLO8 ring game if I could get one going)? Thanks a ton for all of your help, and God bless each and every one of you.

Love,
Assani

I arrive in Las Vegas at 9:30 PM local time tonight and am heading straight to the bellagio to get a safe or something locked up.

Hopefully I get to see JP take it down.

They give you an entry for the first one that you win, and after that if you win one, just show them your entry ticket and they'll give you cash for it...
