[Guest Blog: Multiple Authors (PL1, PL2, chaunceyb3)]

Inspired by Jason Somerville's Run it UP! Poker Web Series and online bankroll challenge.

Follow along this blog as we improve our No Limit Hold'em game and hopefully crush low and mid stakes live poker from a starting bankroll of $2,500.

Finalist in CET Monopoly Millionaire Promotion (Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas)

***UPDATE #8 JAN 25 3:50AM PST***

Flying back to the East Coast today. Thanks for reading this blog entry.

***UPDATE #7 JAN 24 1:30PM PST***

Interviews are complete. Emcee asked "What would you do with $1,000,000 if you won?"

I said I would pay off my student loans and go to graduate school.



And then came the big reveal. All four of us would open our Community Chest on the count of 5.

And the winner is... JULIE. She was a very pleasant lady to talk to while we waited in line and had 3 kids in college plus a mortgage to pay off. We were jokingly talking "equity chop" every time we advanced to the next round (how would the logistics work?). Anyways, congratulations to her!



(The front right Community Chest was mine)

EV = $0. :(

It was not meant to be for chaunceyb3 this time. Wow, a 1 in 4 chance at a million dollars cash. I'll be thinking "what could've been" for a long time, that's for darn sure.



Congratulations again Julie!

***UPDATE #6 JAN 24 1:15PM PST***

Round 2 completed. 8 remaining finalists select one of 8 "Chance" cards. 4 cards have "Advance To Go", 4 have "Go To Jail".

As luck would have it, all 4 "Go To Jail" cards were out of play by the time I went up to pick (7th position). So I was guaranteed one of 4 "Final Round Community Cases" along with the woman behind me, Julie.



EV = $250,000

It's not everyday you get a 1 in 4 shot at $1,000,000. Brief interview with the emcee up next.

***UPDATE #5 JAN 24 1:00PM PST***

Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino- Masquerade Village

We all checked in, got our name tags and signed our disclosure statements.



Round 1 underway. 14 finalists go up to a punchboard (in a predetermined order by drawing ping pong balls- I drew #4) and punch out one of 14 choices. There are 8 "Advance To Go" cards and 6 "Go To Jail" cards.





BAM! chaunceyb3 is moving on to Round 2!

(The 7 designates the selection order for Round 2)

Unfortunately for the woman who drew #14, all the "Advance To Go" cards were accounted for. She was guaranteed elimination before even making it on the stage.

EV = $125,000

***UPDATE #4 JAN 24 2:05AM PST***

An excellent find near the high limit room. An almost $300 advantage play.



***UPDATE #3 JAN 23 11:45PM PST***

Fun times gambling: craps at Caesars Palace and Flamingo, pai gow tiles at Bellagio.







***UPDATE #2 JAN 23 8:15PM PST***

Checked into Caesars Palace. Picked up the $5,000 cash voucher and the official rules for the finale.











My understanding of the rules are: there will be 14 finalists competing for a $1,000,000 lump sum, guaranteed cash prize. There will be only one prize awarded, no deal making is allowed.

EV = $71,428.57

Round 1: 14 finalists pick one of 14 envelopes, each with a number from 1 to 14 inside. Those who pick numbers 1-8 advance to Round 2.

Round 2: 8 remaining finalists pick one of 8 envelopes, each with a number 1 to 8 inside. Those who pick numbers 1-4 advance to Round 3.

Final Round: 4 remaining finalists pick one of 4 "Final Round Cases". 1 "Final Round Case" has the words "One Million Dollars" inside. That finalist is declared the winner.

***UPDATE #1 JAN 23 6:45PM PST***

Arrival at McCarran.





Back in August/September 2014, CET had a kiosk promotion where you earn virtual Monopoly properties, and if you were the first person in your regional market to collect Boardwalk and Park Place, you win $5,000 on the spot and a trip to Las Vegas (plus an additional $5,000) for a shot at $1,000,000.

I got lucky, and picked up Boardwalk and Park Place early in the promotion in AC.

So here we go. $10,000 locked up, with a spot in the Monopoly Millionaire grand finale late January, 2015 in Las Vegas. Will chaunceyb3 take home $1,000,000?

Trip report to follow after the conclusion of the finale.

Awesome, good luck and I look forward to the trip report! I played the game, but only got a few extra RCs(very few!) as my best swipe. Got Park Place, no Boardwalk... :)

My g/f was lucky enough to get 1000 RC from this promo. I didn't get squat.



Good Luck!

Perdition- it's likely the same studio setup at the Rio, but the promotions are different. The one in your link is the finale for the scratch-off ticket game (no cash is guaranteed).

Nice, Chauncey! I'll definitely be watching for the update post-event! Enjoy yourself.



Seems kind of weird that they spend all that cash on you and then tell you you have to find your own way to the Rio. Wouldn't they want to make you feel like a high roller and give you a ride? I guess you can't gamble a limo, but you can gamble the cash.

Thank you AoS, that is and has been my belief for quite some time. A hurried operator and a static distracted receiver who once he wrote down the message as he interpreted kept hearing the same thing because he was hearing what he expected to hear.



They flew high enough to have tremendous headwinds but not know it, they had flown long enough that pursuant to normal, lower altitude, navigational procedures they could safely make the turn and they then made the fateful turn. It was controlled flight into terrain but not into where the wreckage was found since the wreckage is really a "river" of ice. The wreckage is not the point of impact nor is it particularly near it. The glacier "flows" and incorporates the debris.
