I'm pretty sure it wasn't known ahead of time.

I've decided to go for it. I had 78 pts in Nov from messing around at Royal Holdem. I was top 3 for a bit until I had to take a 2 day break for finals. Now that those are done, I'm confident I can put up 2000%/day. I definitely want to build up enough of a buffer so that I can slack around Christmas.

You've got a legit shot. What are you playing? I'd imagine 100/ 200 sng's will own this thing, if needed.

good luck

I've never played higher than a $5 sng, so now is probably not the time to start. My regular game is 5/10 full, but for this I'm sticking to low limit 6-max and hoping I can grind out enough hours to stay ahead of the pack. Although I might have to jump up to 5/10 full on occasion to get back all the money I'm hemmoraging at 6-max. Absolute 6-max I beat for 3 BB/100, but UB has been a [censored] nosedive so far.

thanks for that.

i've half-heartedly begun a pursuit of the 150k points for the $25k tourney entry and am curious if some of the TV chasers will just follow through and go for this also. Certainly possible.

To my knowledge they haven't posted any standings for the Bellagio thing yet.

It's 150k points in 120 days (Dec 6 - Apr 6) and you have to be one of the first 10 players to get there....although I'm doubting they get many more than 10...it's a massive amount of points. It's possible that IF you get to 150k points you'll get the trip but I'll have to see the first showing of the standings to have a better idea.


I have 4k points since Dec 6 so far which is a decent start...but actually puts me behind pace to meet the Apr 6 deadline since 1k points per day isn't going to cut it.

I'm not really sure I'm going to go all the way with this one because it could just be a LOT of effort all for nothing.
But my GF and I already have plans to go to Vegas on these dates anyway (some big conference for nurses she wants to attend) and an entry to a $25k tourney would be kinda nice.


But again, since I'm already behind pace it's not looking too promising.

If they would post a leaderboard so that I knew exactly where I'm at, I might consider going on past the TV promo. But chances are once this is done, I'm going to take a 2-3 week break and not play a single hand of poker. I usually don't play this much poker every day. Honestly, I think it sucks.

all that for a big-ass TV!!

good luck in your quest.


It says somewhere in the rules that the standings are not guaranteed to be completely accurate (think they're just covering themselves if they make a mistake) which would certainly imply that they're planning on posting standings.


I don't know if I'm going all the way with this as even 1k points a day feels like quite a lot and that's not even going to be enough.

I getting down and dirty and going for a ton of points this weekend so we'll see how I feel after that.

Bob what levels and how many tables are you playing?

It seems to difficult to get that many points.

i might be wrong....the promotion is for the first 10 players who reached 150000 points.... most points you can get per hand is .50....so basically at least 300K hands playing upper limits
