Schedule

Event 1 is similar to FTP's multi-entry tournaments. Players can enter both day 1's and combine their stacks for day 2.

The Main Event buy-in is $5,000 with the standard 25k WPT Championship seat going to the winner.

Prelim events allow registration in the first 6 levels.

To answer the eventual question, this is NOT a WPT event. Only the December Five Diamond World Poker Classic and WPT World Championship will be televised WPT events at the Bellagio.

Does anyone have any information on the prelim events?

Starting stacks?
Blind structure/levels?

I called the poker room, the lady who answered had no clue.

Looks like they only have two prelim price points (500 and 1k) and you can re-enter all of them within 1st 6 levels...you would think getting structure info given the monotony of the schedule would be easy to obtain, but w/ the Bellagio who knows...

Thanks for the info, Kev.
I don't remember a Bellagio festival with so many 540$ tourneys, probably disappointing for pros but that's good news for small/mid stakes players like me.

I'm curious to take a look at the structures and to know if they'll keep the buy-ins low for the Five Diamond in November.

hopefully this is wrong but my friend told me they shut down the fontana lounge & now hold the tourneys elsewhere; doesnt sound accurate to me but any affirmation 1 way or the other?

The best thing about Bellagio tournaments at this point seems to be that a lot of pros hate playing there.

Really want to play a couple events. Looking for any excuse to get back to Vegas even though I just left 2 days ago.

this is becoming un-appealing by the minute..... no bellagio rep, obv its not high on thier priority list pushing the tourneys into the cash room, it sounds like an everyday local casino "making room" for some experiment

to think that this used to be the poker headquarters.........

is the payout structure going to be goofy again?

Are the 500$ daily seperate tournaments, or 2 flights for the same tournament?

Who is going to be TD'ing this piece?

The schedule sheet is confusing, are some of these tournaments standalone or are they satellites for the Five Diamond in December? Just reading one might get the impression that it's the latter which is very strange.. because nobody is going to show up to play satellites masquerading as actual events basically.

And why is it that Bellagio staff is always rude to you, and they never have a rep online answering questions? Venetian/Aria/MGM and I believe even Caesars now have reps or at least a twitter page... Bellagio has NOTHING... yeah "it's not just poker, it's poker at the Bellagio" indeed!!!!

The supersatellites are for the Festa al Lago Main Event. Players can register until ~3pm on Day 2.

Does anyone have an idea if cash games will still run during this if the tourneys are held in the poker room? Mainly wondering about 5/10 10/20nl.

also any projections on field size for the main?

I would be completely shocked if the cash games were not running.

When folks check back to this thread, I hope they can give an update into SNGs satellites into the $500 2-day tourneys.

Cost, structure time of day run, etc

Will be in Vegas during that first week; would like to get into the tourney as cheaply as possible so when I bust out after 4 levels, I can say "Well, at least when I busted out like a wuss, it only cost me < insert SNG satellite price here>"

If anyone finds out please post info....
