Every year someone shows up with an expired lamer from the year before as the most expensive card protector they will ever own :-)

I've seen many...

Someone told me you can bring the lammers at the end of the series to the cage and they will "mail you a check "

I have not confirmed this yet tho

Re: 2+2 WSOP lammer exchange

So is the consensus that lammers were saleable at face value as long as you were patient and avoided people like Kessler? Will this probably continue for May 27 - July, 2014?

Was this ever confirmed? If so, when it's a large amount I assume you'd need to fill out the tax form as you would for a regular large payout?

Re: 2+2 WSOP lammer exchange

no chance. also, setting up a meeting point on an open online forum to trade lammers is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. You don't think the suits at Caesars or WSOP have read this thread? Use your brain, they will snap shut down any such meeting or trading spot. Use PMs if you want to set up a swap meet. Also, this will force them to police the sngs even further and not only will this hurt the liquidity in the lammer market but also kill some of the great SNG action we see over the summer. Just be smart and discreet and you can sell your lammers no problem. I've been going to wsop for almost 10 years and never once had an issue. If you are really in a rush, just walk over to a 1k or 500 thats running and swap out your lammer chip for some of the last-longer money that guys have on the table as side bets. This works basically every single time. Use your brain people.

No, I don't.

Did anyone see such suits at the designated meeting place(s)? If people want to do business with each other as described in the thread, it's none of your business.

Re: 2+2 WSOP lammer exchange

none of my business? lol I'm trying to protect you moron. I ccl what you do but when it potentially affects the liquidity in trading lammers and kills the SNG action it is my business because it affects my bottom line. Posting in an open forum that you want to trade lammers is a negative freeroll because if they catch wind of it WSOP will simply squash these efforts and make it harder for the rest of us to sell our lammers. Just because they didn't notice last year doesn't mean they won't pay attention this year. Don't be shortsighted and only look after your own selfish interests. This is a community not your personal trading platform. Your actions affect other people. Stop being lazy and sell your lammers like 99% of the rest of us do. If you think there is no shot caesars or WSOP can read this thread, you are even dumber than you sound.

Never confirmed ... However I had about 2.5k in lammers at the end of the series and they just cashed me up at the place where you registered for the wsop events

Is any 2+2er willing to buy WSOP lammers at face value during the 2+2 Party on July 5?

Re: 2+2 WSOP lammer exchange

Ok so people are meeting and exchanging lammers for cash? Even at 95% I am happy with that. Now I can play SNGs and be OK with exchanging.

There are plenty of people in line that will pay the full amount, don't rake yourself an extra 5%.
