best daily MTT to play in Vegas?

What is the best daily MTT to play in Vegas? I have never been to Las Vegas and I'm going next month and only have time to play 1 MTT.

Where offers best overall poker tourney experience in terms of value for money?

Heard good things about ARIA so far

Any guidance/advice will be greatly appreciated

Budget anywhere from $100 - $300 ish

PokerAtlas is your friend & will list all tournaments with details.

It all depends on what you are looking for but IMO Aria, Venetian, & Wynn offer best experience/value.

I love the $125 aria, but it lasts a very long time and i'm not always in the mood for 8 hours of tournament poker.

Guess you wouldn't like Orleans then. Think it was more than 8 hrs before the cash bubble burst.

Re: best daily MTT to play in Vegas?

yeah, depends on structure - gonna get fun / worse average player in here probably, but structure's feels like a super turbo online to me so if you don't mind the variance, them taking out 27% as rake, and taking your chances with shoving stacks through half the tourney that'll be fun... Otherwise, if you like deeper stacks and more play for the money the Orleans or Aria are good choices.

Aria 125 has a great stucture. Takes 8 hours. If you only have 4 hours, probably Caesars.

Re: best daily MTT to play in Vegas?

The Aria is a beautiful casino with great food options - it feels like Vegas. The other options mentioned here largely feel like Tunica. The thought of flying to Vegas in order to save $10 on rake and spend all day at the Orleans is sad.

Rather play at Orleans than voluntarily get bent over at Aria.

Check Poker Atlas or the Bravo App for room daily tournaments. PHo has $80 tournies that last about 3 hours with $1500 guarantees with $850 up top.

In my opinion the Wynn has moved ahead of the Aria as the best poker room in Vegas, for quality of game, quality of game management, and playing conditions.

Why do they call it the Wynn poker room when you play at the Encore. I parked at the Wynn and had to walk forever to get to the poker room.

Gak, those chairs look awful. The old room had nice padded and swivel chairs.

Just to be clear, that photo was taken of the expanded tournament area, which is used for Wynn Classic events. The actual poker room is at the top of the photo under the red awnings, and is even more comfortable than the orignal poker room you remember!

Stopping at Wynn for part of my trip this summer, will you guys be releasing your schedule after the latest series you're running?

Not stayed since the poker room was on the other side, so looking forward to giving some money away

FYI: In the future, look for the walkway from the parking lot directly over to Encore. Walk through the casino doors there and the Poker room is just around the corner. Saves a ton of time winding through the casinos.

I agree with using pokeratlas. You will see a variety of buy ins, for a variety of casinos. Aria, Venetian, Wynn are consistent and have the best tournaments IMO, and I myself always prefer the Aria $125 because it has a decent structure, and dealers aren't terrible. The locals aren't great really anywhere for the most part, and you have others with money to spend. But like its been said, thats a long day. I have never played the flamingo $60 at midnight, but honestly even if it was 50% rake that sounds like a blast.

If you're playing to have fun, don't worry too much about rake. Think about your time commitment and what you want to do after.

Poker Rep, how long do you have to play at cash games to get parking validated?
