I just received this - super excited!!! This could be just what the doctor ordered for an end of the year bonus!!!










FYI - the "auto qualifiers" for the $500k bonus hand are those persons who were invited that have either (a) lost $150k in any one visit to Aria or MGM Grand in calendar year 2013 or (b) aggregate losses of $300k or more at Aria or MGM Grand in calendar year 2013)

Wow, ace. Is there an entry fee, or did only people who "auto qualify" get invited? Biggest tournament I ever got an invite to was $100K, and it wasn't winner-take-all.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Babs - it is invitation only - no fee. As for the auto qualifiers...that only applies to the special $500k bonus after the tournament is over.

How is the $500k won? Usually, it's a suited BJ on that one hand or some other equally difficultly achieved hand...

The invitation did not say. It just states one hand versus the dealer. As I get more details I will let you all in on it. I am more concerned with the $250k tournament prize than the $500k bonus (which may or may not hinge upon some outrageous hand as you stated)

*ahem* Too special to spend in VEGAS? It's the specialest place on earth! What better place to spend an anniversary. Plus, you could watch Ace on the 21st and watch Mission a couple days later. Nothing says 45th anniversary like watching a guy shove McNuggets in his face for an hour:-)

This means a special voodoo schaden doll for
the occasion. I'm already anticipating the
experience of Ace not letting me down..
