    Comp's week at the WSOP and elsewhere, May 31-June 7

    Going to try and document my week in Vegas starting with (and hopefully ending with) the WSOP Big 50. Plan to play day 1C on the Saturday, day 2 on Monday, day 3 on Wednesday, day 4 on Thursday and day 5 FT on the Friday and then fly home on the red eye with fistfuls of $$$..
    Just in case this doesn't finish as above I need to make some alternate plans. This thread is where I intend to build that plan and update as I go.

    Flying out on Swoop from Hamilton at 7:30 pm on Friday May 31st, arrive 9pm Vegas.

    Flying back on Swoop at 10:15 pm on Friday June 7th Vegas time, arrive Hamilton at 5:30 am.

    Saturday June 1: 10am WSOP Big 50 day 1C $500. 0% rake, 50m blinds, 50K stack, S of 126

    Potential other tournaments:

    Sunday June 2:

    Planet Hollywood 50K in a day 11am $260. 15% rake, 30m blinds, 20K stack, S of 68
    https://vegas-poker-schedule.com/ph/page-5.pdf

    Golden Nugget NLH 1pm $150. 26% rake, 30m blinds, 15K stack, S of 56
    https://vegas-poker-schedule.com/golden/page-9.pdf

    5pm Rio weekly deepstack PLO $250. 19% rake, 30m blinds, 20K stack,
    http://vegas-poker-schedule.com/rio/...io-250-PLO.pdf
    This I would only consider if I was out of the Big 50 as it would likely go very late and my Day 2C would be Monday at 11.

    Monday June 3:

    Golden Nugget PLO/BigO/Omaha8 11am $250. 20% rake, 30/40m blinds, 15K stack
    https://vegas-poker-schedule.com/golden/page-10.pdf
    Orleans NLH 11am $150. 20% rake, 30m blinds, 15K stack, S of 56

    Only issue with this one is if I go real deep I may miss my flight, but so what, good payout would be worth it. Will have to assess what a last minute flight Saturday would cost me vs the payout, may just play cash or a smaller/shorter daily tournament today.

    Bolded are where I am leaning at the moment. Subject to change of course.

    Tournament package investors:
    Business partner Mark - 5% $100.
    Business partner Gary - 2% $ 40.
    MrCaspan Steve - 5% $100.
    Gogie Brian - 5% $100
    Folded Cory - 5% $100.
    Toronto Pimp Mike - 8% $160.


    Sold out, thank you all, now all I have to do is win big..

    *** Summary ***
    Gogies summary of the net value of this bap as being $11.40 cdn per 1% looks right to me so I have listed below your net amount owing.
    Business partner Mark - 5% $100. now owes $57.
    Business partner Gary - 2% $ 40. I owe him back $27.20 PAID
    MrCaspan Steve - 5% $100. now owes $57. PAID
    Gogie Brian - 5% $100 owes me $105. net from his bap PAID
    Folded Cory - 5% $100. now owes $57. PAID
    Toronto Pimp Mike - 8% $160. now owes $91.20 PAID

    All figures above are in cdn and I am fine settling next time I see you, no use wasting transfer fees.
    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    FYI, this is the site I am using to choose potential tournaments.
    https://vegas-poker-schedule.com/list-view/

    It's pretty neat in that it has all sorts of filters to narrow it down. This guy put a lot of work into it and is changing as he gets additional info.

    I'm figuring if I bomb out of the Big 50 I may play another 1K worth of tournaments before I leave but it will depend on energy level on any particular day. At other times I may just play cash so that I can come and go as I please. Trying to decide which tournaments I am the most plus ev at (if any) is what I am working on up till Friday..

    Any opinions welcome..

    Still thinking about this but if I do I would like to make it more variable, ie a whole package. Two of the guys I work with asked me about buying pieces as well. Regardless of whether I do or not I will be posting stuff here, years ago we used to do it on twitter but the forum works well on my phone and with my NA data plan and chargers at tables mostly it makes it feasible to do it this way.

    Sunday June 2:
    Planet Hollywood 50K in a day 10am $260. 15% rake, 30m blinds, 20K stack, S of 68

    Wednesday June 5
    WSOP weekly seniors NLH 9am $250. 19% rake, 30m blinds, 20K stack, S of 46

    these two look pretty good and I like the Planet Hollywood one on the 7th too but you need to see what the airfare would be last minute.

    Willing to buy into any package you would sell .

    Ok, I think I will sell up to 30% of a $1500. US package. Haven't figured out exactly what I will play other than the Big50 but basically you buy a % of the first $1500 worth of tournaments. Right now the XE converts $1500. US to $2015.85 so I'll round down to 2000 CDN to make it easy 1%=$20 cdn If for some reason I don't play 1500 worth (ie I go all the way in the Big50) and you have payed me, it will be refunded. I will be playing some cash if too tired to play a tournament but it is not included unless someone wants to fund me in the Big Game..

    At the moment I would like to limit to 5% max per person, 1% min. If it is someone I know reasonably well or is vouched for by someone I know well you can pay whenever or hopefully I will just be paying you your winnings minus your % bought.
    If it doesn't sell all 30% I will offer the rest to whomever wants it. Please post or pm interest and I will add it to the OP. I will be playing either way even if nothing sells.

    All tournament receipts will be posted here, assuming our new programmer doesn't mess up posting of pics. I will also update via my phone as often as possible., remember the 3 hr time difference.

    One other thing I forgot, afaik 30% witholding only applies for winnings over 5K so if by some miracle I do go over that in a particular tournament be aware we may not get it back. If we are in the money in any event and we are getting close to the 5K mark in payout level, I will attempt to get it in to go much deeper. ie I don't want to go out with just over a 5K score.
