    Default Vegas Memories #3 : Caesars Palace tournaments

    As well as playing the Venetian Deepstack events, I also played a lot of tournaments at Caesars Palace.

    They have some great tournaments, $160 at 7pm where you get 10k chips, $85 at 12pm where you get 7500 chips, $70 at 9am, 3pm, 10pm and 1 am where you get 3000 chips.

    All tournaments have 25/50 starting blinds, and 20 minute levels (except the 7pm which is 30 minutes).

    They are also re-entry tournaments where you can re-enter if you bust out before the end of the third level.

    I did pretty well, particularly in the lower buy-in tournaments...

    $160 - 5 entries (+1 re-entry) - one cash : 9th ($360)
    $85 - 5 entries (+1 re-entry) - three cashes : 3-way chop ($1400), 3rd ($647), 7th ($315)
    $70 - 5 entries (+1 re-entry) - one cash : 1st ($800)

    Profit = $1632

    Good stuff Patrick. What sort of fields did the Caesars' tournaments attract?

    Yeah, what field sizes and how long did they take to finish?

    The $160 usually had about 80 runners. I know it finished at 4am one night.

    The $85 usually had about 100 runners and would finish about 7pm.

    The $70 would get between 40-60 runners, and take about 4 hours.

    Good stuff. Is this including my 20%?

    So I guess Caesars is now the place to play rather than the Veneitian.

    On my visits I always preferred the tourneys in Caesars but the cash games in the Venetian.
    There are only three ways to play pocket Jacks; they are all wrong.
