Re: Other Summer Series

Orleans, yes. Schedule should be announced soon, per 2/6 OrleansPokerRoom tweet.

Binion's, don't know. Jerry said to "stay tuned" in a 2/4 tweet. Dog Days of Summer schedules were announced 3/13/17 and 3/9/18 on FB, so if it happens we'll know soon.

Re: Other Summer Series

I'm not too excited about Binion's seeing as they refused to honour their guarantees in the past year so many will be "boycotting". GN has better tournaments and large fields anyways.

Re: Other Summer Series

All I've found so far at The Orleans is the Senior Poker Tour June 15-16, 2019. Hopefully their full schedule should be out soon.

Oh wow. Really?

Not shocked they missed the guarantees (and I assume by a long shot) as that place was dead when I walked in there last summer.

Re: Other Summer Series

Orleans full schedule was out late March last year (definitely by Apr 16 because I have a download with that date).

Venetian was March 1 last year. Wynn was March 28. I expect everybody's a little later this year since WSOP was later than last year.

WSOP check
Aria check
GN check
PHo draft
Wynn TBD
Venetian big events announced only
Orleans TBD
Binion's TBD

Placed perfectly between the two WSOP senior events.

Re: Other Summer Series

Binion's with impressive schedule.

Wynn couldn't have picked much worse days for their PLO events.

You shouldn't make up lies about Binions dude. I called and spoke to the head person and he told me they haven't had guarantees in their tournaments in 3 years. Last year he told me the main had 250 players and first place was $60,000 or so. And he said they have the best structures with 60,000 in chips and hour levels. 2 starting days and $1100 buy-in.

Sounds like a pretty awesome tournament. In the future stop spreading false information to bring down a pretty nice and affordable tournament series.

I enjoy playing Binions. I cant figure why the room suffers

Don't think Binions post here, so probably best shooting a question to them on Twitter.

Paul used to be pretty good when he was there, which is prob a reason he's now one of one of top dogs at Aria.

I have been a little surprised at the larger buy ins for Seniors events at the Venetian and the Wynn.

old people like money as well...

Beyond that, however, I suspect that it is because we are seeing more players over the age of 50 that started playing in the post-Moneymaker era and thus may be in a better financial position or are more accustomed to larger buy-in amounts than some of the Seniors of earlier generations. Entry totals at WSOP have gone up, showing that the current crop of seniors is willing to pay four-figures to enter an event.

Re: Other Summer Series

Binions has $550 and $1100 tourneys daily. Does anyone know if they have a room this year, or if they will attempt to play tournaments on the casino floor, as theyve done the past couole of years?

+1 I also believe the properties themselves and the clientele they may attract plays a part. I suspect (Just my opinion) that most houses would see a more significant drop in runners if they tried a 4 figure buy in and do much better in the $500 - $600 cap area.

I played there last year. The old Poker room was converted to a slot room. Therefore I don't think they have a dedicated space. That said, the turn out last year was decent - in the 70-100 range for most mixed game tournaments. This year the buy-in is greater. Went from $365 to $550. I will probably try one event there to see how it goes
