Easy to recognize me also, 40's white guy wearing a hat & glasses being amusing by the kids poking fun at my "old style" flip-open cell phone

it's really annoying that bellagio is going 10 handed in these tournies.

for the 330 i can understand, but the 540 today at 5pm had barely over 100 entries, 10 handed for this is just dumb.

also what is up with their "no cash" rule for tourney buyins. i mean wtf come on. how is that real? how long has that been in effect?

In my opinion the managers of the tournament made too many mistakes for me to play any more preliminary tournaments this year. Like someone said before it was tilting to be 10 handed. But even worse was that on the first day they stopped play at something rediculous (like 5pm) only a few hours after the start time of 12pm. Then, the next day they started at 12pm and wanted to get the tournament done that night (which would have taken until 6am-7am). They finally buckled and said they'd only play until 3am then come back at noon the next day. Just a fokin joke.

Although the tourney did have value for anyone considering playing a prelim.

It was over at 2am.

The problem is in the pay structure. Cause they were paying 100 if they got 400 they had to stop when they did, nearing 20% of the field remaining.

also bellagio doesnt give out meal comps like Venetian/Caesars/etc is that correct?

I mean $10 isn't an event-killer, but meal comps + better service + online rep + better structure = significant difference if you ask me.

How was the blind structure? Lots of people have asked but I haven't heard an answer yet. Everyone started with 25,000, correct? How long are the levels?
