Hey, guys. I won't be able to get the results of the WPT event in Ante Up Magazine until the December issue, because the deadline for the November issue is today. That said, I'd like to get a couple of "player experience" quotes in for this issue.

If anyone would like to provide a quote on the record regarding your thoughts on the tourney, just leave it here in the forum (if that's OK with the moderators) or email me at rickgershman@gmail.com. You can also tweet me at @rickafterdark. Just include your first and last name and city. Nothing else is needed. Thanks.

Sold out, 211 players. I busted not long after we got down to 3 tables, about 11:30. Went three hours without a pair, and finally picked up 8s, and ran then into Queens..

PSA TO WPT PLAYERS:
If you're unaware, the Isle is withholding 30% if winnings exceed $5,000 for tax liability reasons. I've been told by the staff that it is mandatory, when in fact it is not. If you provide your taxpayer id number (Form W-9), then they are required to issue you a W2G.


Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer or accountant. This information came from a reputable 2p2 poster, and I'm not sure if he is a lawyer or accountant either. But I am pretty darn sure this is accurate.

Just to add to this, I asked about it and they did not end up taking any taxes from players. There was some debate over whether they had to or not. They said they made the calls and they don't have to. They still have to do paperwork for larger amounts, but taxes taken out is up to the player.

How have the turn outs been for the prelim events? Are they all selling out at 200-ish?

That's good to hear. I'll probably play Thursday night. As I said before, this series deserves to crush the HPT. It's just better.

Im pretty sure there are still ME spots left. They are taking preregs for it already though. I regged last week in fact. Only annoying thing was I couldnt register for both day 1a & 1b and get a refund if I make it on the first bullet.

Oooh, I hope that doesn't mean 1a will sell out in advance. It would suck to go over there and not get a seat.

They said last night that pre reg for 1A is at around 30 people and about 20 for 1B, so should be able to get a seat if you get there early at the start of reg.

Anyone know if ilse is going to keep tournament area setup and go after tourney players?
It would be great to have another room that offers tourneys. Players who agree should let Matt the poker room manager know!

They have a bunch of new tourneys starting in November. They have info cards in the WPT area where I got this. They are going to be running 3 tourneys a day during the week and two a day on the weekends. Same structures as these WPT events, with a little shorter time limits. I'm just looking at one of these and they are running tourneys at 10am, 3pm, and 7pm during the week and 12pm and 7pm sat/sun. A couple of Omaha tourneys on Thursdays, hi/lo in the morning and PLO at night. It looks pretty good if you like tournaments. They're going to do the $10K freeroll again in November too. We'll see how these new tourneys go, but they have promos running with them like free buffets, a tourney bad beat, and a tourney high hand for $100. They're doing a ton of new stuff. I just hope they keep WPT too.

Has anyone played at the lodge lately. The jackpot is pretty big, but when I was in yesterday they only had 2 games and 1 was weak. Why isn't anyone chasing that one? When ameristar was that high the place was packed.
