Vegas Summer 2011 Plans

I have my hotel booked already for Vegas this summer. I am at Harrah’s from the 7th through the 14th of June. Couldn’t really beat the $35/nt weekday rates. I have taken a look at the schedules that are out so far (WSOP, Binions and Golden Nugget). The Venetian schedule will probably be $300s and $500s throughout.

My tentative schedule looks like this:

6/7 – $200 HORSE (Binions) or $230 HORSE (Golden Nugget)

6/8 – $1,500 NLHE Shootout (WSOP)

6/9 – $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/10 – $1,500 HORSE (WSOP) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/11 – $1,500 NLHE (WSOP) or $230 PLO (Golden Nugget) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/12 – $1,000 NLHE (WSOP) or $230 Stud (Golden Nugget) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

6/13 – $230 Stud8 (Golden Nugget) or $300 NLHE (Venetian) or $200 NLHE (WSOP)

I’m not going to play four WSOP events. I will pick one or two of these to play. Depending on how the trip goes I am contemplating coming back right before the Main Event to play in one or two of the mega satellites.

I am still going to try hard to win a seat online on PokerStars. I was planning to start in February by building up as many step 5 tickets as I could so I am ready to play each of the $700 megas on Saturdays/Sundays when they launch. Work has killed me and I have only had a chance to play a total of six step 2s so far. I somehow finished in 3rd or 4th in five of them for a redo and finished 5th in the remaining one. That drop down to step 1 ended in a 4th place finish for me good for $1.50.

I will keep grinding these in March and will probably make it to SilverStar this month, as long as work doesn’t get in the way.
