Default Re: Wynn Tourneys?

The tournaments at Wynn just started last Tuesday, September 20th.

I would avoid the satelites like the plaque. The format is awful. The $330 tournaments on Tuesday and Thursday (which begin at 12:00 pm) have single table satelites for $80 beginning at 8:00 am.

They seat 10 handed and award two $330 seats. So they take in $800 and pay out $660. A vig of $140 or 17.5%. Ouch.

FOr this money, you receive T500 in chips, 15 minutes rounds, blinds at $25-$25 and for the most part doubling from there. Needless to say, it doesn't last long, and you almost can't survive a single beat.

The tournaments themselves are a fairly good structure. You receive T3000 in chips, the rounds are 45 minutes, and the blinds increase very slowly (25-25, 25-50, 50-100, 75-150, 100-200, 150-300, etc.).

They have been averaging about 50-60 players. For 50 or less players, they pay the top 5. For less than 100 players, they pay the top 9. I think the maximum possible to be paid is 27.

First place for the 1st two $330 tournaments has paid between $5K and $6K.

Friday's tournament is at 3:00 pm. It costs $540. Satelites are $125, two seats paid, $170 vig or 13.6%. Same crappy format.

Hope this helps.
