WPBT Winter Gathering Update

So there's this little get-together coming up in December...

And there's usually a little poker tournament associated with it...

And some of you are wondering where and when that will take place...

And some of you are wondering about structure...

So here's the deal -

Saturday, December 8th

The Bloggers go Italian as the WPBT Winter Gathering Tournament hits the Venetian!

Format - Freezeout

Buy-In - $125 ($100 to prize pool, $25 juice)

Chips - $4,500 in chips

Starting Blinds - $25/50

Adder - $1,500 in chips for a $10 staff toke (optional)

Levels - 30 minutes long

I'll put up the final structure as soon as I have it confirmed, but it will most likely be the one I posted a couple weeks ago with more play early, shooting for having a 75/150 level and one other, and cutting out a couple of later levels.

If you haven't let me know that you're in for the Winter, please do so now! I will start pulling together a list of attendees, in a spreadsheet that will be distributed to all peeps coming.

And please indicate if you're playing in the tourney or not.

You can get in touch with me at johnhartness AT gmail DOT com.

And I'm betting that even with a 2PM start time, at least one blogger is still gonna be too drunk to play, and that Al will still be drunk from the night before when the event starts!

Now if the waitresses have really big boobs, we will be all set. Wait. This is the Venetian we are talking about. We are all set!

Venetian boobies are first class.

I don't know about the quality of the boobies, but I've heard that the Venetian is nice. I'll definitely be playing in the tournament.

The Harrahs rates may be rough for that weekend. The IP looks to be the cheapest once again. I am waiting for them to send me the card for free rooms again.

If you have the Total Rewards 2 nights free deal, you can get 4 nights for about $300 (Our Thurs and Sun is free.)

Thx for organizing Falstaff. I owe you a shot of some sort.

I don't really care about the Venetian boobies, but the rest of it is nice.

I'm in for the tournament.

The Venetian is a first class place. I'm really looking forward to playing there. If I luck out and win a decent chunk of the prize pool, maybe I can afford to stay there for a night someday.

Sweet, I can go donk off $400 again in the $8/$16 Mixed game afterwards!

Count me in.

I'm glad to see that there are some A-Listers such as myself showing...thank you very much.

I'm going to try and make it happen, though I can't say for sure that I'm in just yet. Knowing there are other A-listers than me (See Drizz) showing up, and C-Listers (See Joaquin) makes the decision easier. Thanks for organizing.

This solid D-Lister will be attending. Whee!

I'm not a poker blogger but I play one on TV so maybe that counts...

: )

After hanging out with the AlCantHang Experience in Key West, I can't miss this gathering. Count me in for the tourney too.

Does getting hit on in the Geisha Bar by DickBro last year make me eligible to join the tomfoolery this year?
