Have the Nugget just not responded to your contact?

I spend most of my time drinking, but from memory the main event had one of the better structures, if you used plog's s-points system.

I think the dailies were pretty good for $150 tourneys, too.

Re: Grand Poker Series 2017 at Golden Nugget LV, May 30-July 3

marky is correct about the Nugget's main event structure (2016, #53, $570). It was equivalent to the structure of the WSOP $1111 Little Drop last year.

However, all other holdem structures at the Nugget, got worse from 2015:

Hopefully they will revert back to the 2015 structures (and juice). Everyone--, let's lean an all the casinos to release structure data asap. 50 days out and only WSOP and Aria have provided structures.

Re: Grand Poker Series 2017 at Golden Nugget LV, May 30-July 3

As part of my month long stay in Vegas during WSOP, I booked the GN for a few nights using the promo code assigned for their grand series.
After reading the booking details, it stated that the guest must provide a receipt to confirm GS event participation to qualify for the reduced rate, my dilemma is that I will be playing a Binion's event.
Can anyone with prior experience comment on this? How strict are they to see a receipt at check out?

I haven't stayed DT in years, but Main St. is a good value (esp. cheap during week and no RFs).

I've stayed at the GN numerous times under a promo code, and not one time have I had to prove that I played in the event.

Yeah, EDC is ofc the highest by far.

I guess you don't have a card for Boyd and/or Caesar's (TR)?

If not, you could find a pretty reasonable hotel and bus/uber/cab it to/fro:

Last place by a week and counting for releasing structures. 31 days until your series starts.

the lackluster responses and tardiness of structures is probably a good indicator of how well these tournaments are going to be run gl

I only played the ME last year, and all considered, it was run pretty well. That being said, I really don't understand the difficulty in dispensing structure sheets for these things. Once the schedule is out, I assume all regulatory and logistical hurdles have been cleared, so I 'm not really sure what would be taking up so much time. These structures don't tend to change a great deal year to year. It doesn't seem like it should take more than a couple hours to assemble them in some electronic format and make them available. Frankly, I don't see why this isn't done concurrently with the schedule release.

If I recall from two years ago when you registered at event they had structure sheets. However not everyone is a donker and we like to familiarize ourselves with the levels before committing our money. I however really like the many events for seniors if the structures are favourable

Re: Grand Poker Series 2017 at Golden Nugget LV, May 30-July 3

I will not play any GPS tournament this year. My friends and i can't organize our trip and chose our tournaments without structure sheets. It's a long trip for us and the lack of consideration from GN encourage us to play at the PH, Binions, Rio, Wynn, Venetian, Aria.... We will not miss opportunities.
See you in 2018.

For $360 BI @ GN, I think you'd pay an extra $5 rake at Binion's and Aria's structures appear only slightly better. Otherwise, all of those should have better rake & structures. I'm talking about PL non-NLH events. I'm not sure about their NLH structures. This PL structure is from ~2-3 years ago, but I doubt there have been any significant changes (probably none at all). Note that these are 30 min. levels and total of SB + BB:

1 150
2 225
3 300
4 450
5 600
6 900
7 1,200
8 1,500
9 1,800
10 2,400
11 3,000
12 4,500
13 6,000
14 7,500
15 9,000
16 12,000
17 15,000
18 18,000
19 24,000
20 30,000
