Hello All,
Got a vegas trip coming up tomorrow for a long 6 nite stay.
My game is video poker and live cash no limit holdem 1-2.
I toy around a little with craps and BJ
Interested in playing some no limit holdem tournaments. Dont want to spend alot, I play for fun, not really to gamble.
My limit for a tourment is 75.00 but actually would rather pay less.
Staying downtown but strip just a bus ride away and Sams just a shuttle ride away.
I like big tournaments. More players means longer tournament and more paying places. 2 to 3 tables is small to me, only 3 or 4 places pay. Would love a 8 to 10 table tournament so getting to final table pays. Anything like that around?
I heard good things about the Stratosphere tournament, heard Sahara players play these now making it a sizeable tournament, anybody know around how many players?
Saw Sams town has some incredibly cheap tournaments, whats up with those? Worth it?

Stratosphere is your best bet for that size of player pool and the buyin is $65 with the buyin/rebuy. Golden Nugget has some $65 +/- buyins too. I have no idea about Sam's Town except that their juice is high and the turnout was low the last few times I was over there.

Besides GN Binions is the only place downtown with NLHE tournaments. They are usually slow this time of the year though the weekend guarantees run a decent number of tables but that buyin is $120 iirc.
