Rio WSOP satellite thread

Now that we're underway, thought it would be handy to have a single thread to discuss the live WSOP satellites at the Rio.

I'm not there for another week, but if anyone has the following info:

1. How many entries they've had in the Daily Megas ($330 @ 4pm and $550 @ 8pm)?

2. What are the Single Table Sat buy-ins?

From memory, someone mentioned in the general WSOP thread that this year's lammers are pink.

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

last year the $550 @ 8pm attracted about 80< players in nlhe
they change format if there is a 10k on next day
when it came to NLSD27 it was 28 players

fyi: you can reenter those satellites

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

How many players were the $330 megas getting at this time last year? Hopefully the number of entries will increase as we get closer to the ME...

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

During the days just prior to the main event the $550's had about 300-500 entries. At that time there are the 10 AM($550 also) and 4 PM megas but really don't know about the numbers in the AM mega.

It sounds like during the days prior to the main the numbers are a lot less. Somewhere in this forum I've read that it picks up to 100+ on the weekends prior to the July 4 main.

I try to find an official who can tell me the number of entries before I register-not excited about low numbers in the megas but this probably doesn't help you if you won't be there during the time just prior to the Main.

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

Can anyone confirm the exact buy-ins for the single table sats? (I know they are supposed to range from $125 to $1080 or something like that)?

125, 175, 235?, 325, 525, 1030, and I think they will have some 2ks (not sure exact amount)
I think its a $235, but not 100%

Mainly running the $175s, $325s and $525s STT.

Buy-in - chips - levels - payout
$175 - 1,000 - 15 min - $1,620
$325 - 1,500 - 20 min - $3,120
$525 - 2,000 - 20 min - $5,120

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

Are the single table sats all winner take all or do they pay out a small amount to second place?

All winner take all, but the vast majority are chopped in some way.

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

How long do the $550 megas tend to last? I understand it varies with field sizes, etc. most likely to play on a weekend night in a few weeks.

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

The one this morning had 58 and lasted 14 levels.

RE: The selling of satellite lammers - they are really cracking down on the "no selling" thing. A lot of the security guys don't give a crap, but there are plenty that do. There is a suit or security every 50 feet just about no matter where you are. I was making a sale and a suit started yelling at me. As hard as it was to sell, I think this is my last trip playing the satellite game.

Yeah, people looking to play sngs or satellites, just spend a few days grinding them at Venetian and Wynn where they pay you in cash chips.

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

so say you get a 500 lammer, can you use that to buy into a daily deepstack? If so what happens to the remainder of the balance?

Pretty sure you can only use them to buy into $500+ tourneys. Including STTs.

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

You can use it for anything, but the extra goes into the pockets of Apollo Global. No change given.

Although I've heard you can buy multiple people in with a single chip. Verify that, because they did not allow that in the past.

Anyone grinding the WSOP single-tables? Curious how many you could play in a day...

Re: Rio WSOP satellite thread

I'm getting there tomorrow and can't remember how the mega's work. If I win a seat to the 5k Stud Saturday night mega do I get a seat or get 5k in lammers. Just can't remember.

Thanks.

Not dedicated. You can play any of the mega sats or the single table sats and use the lammers to buy-in to $1k and $1.5k events. The low buy-in single table sats fill up nice and quickly on Fridays and Saturdays (ie. day before the $1k and $1.5k NLHE events).
