So, I went to Phoenix on Wednesday with a bunch of buddies for my Bachelor party. Joe Colbourne happened to be on our flight, my brother knows him from working out at NSD in Calgary. He ended up sitting right next to us all on the plane. We were all drinking together on the plane, and when we got to Phoenix, we had a party bus to pick us up at the airport, so we told Joe he could hitch a ride with us to the house he was staying at for the weekend. Just before we dropped him off, he said to me "Hey man, I know it's your party and I don't want to intrude, but is it cool if me and Jake Gardiner come out and party with you guys tonight?".
So, Long story short, on the first night of my bachelor party, we partied with Joe Colbourne and Jake Gardiner. Both unbelievable guys. Colbourne in particular was one of the nices guys I've ever met. I got some pics on my phone I'll try to post 'em up later if I have time.
I like to play the 8-16 limit o8 game at the Venetian whenever I'm in Vegas. When I was there in January for a few weeks, it ran every day, sometimes 2 tables, and sometimes they had 15-30 o8 going. I'd assume with the WSOP going, it is a near guarantee it will run every day there.
Can't help you with the limit hold'em part, though.
If you are curious about what games are running at what time, download the Bravo Poker app to your phone. Most Vegas casinos use the Bravo program for their games and they link up with the app to show you what games, what stakes, and how many people are waiting in their poker room. Saves you from having to walk around and search.
Looking for a quick vegas get away..June 9-12 area...give or take a couple of days..4 nights..
Anyone have magic deals they find that I am not seeing?
Havent booked a Vegas trip in a while and not sure of the tricks..Arp, Wayne...Looking at you here!!!
I found Aria $1375 for 2 people ..Everything included..Air, Hotel, Taxes...Even two show tickets..
Its a wife trip, so the hotel needs to be "nicer" with a good pool.
That is not a bad price at all.
What I found on Hotwire leaving out of Toronto Sunday at 8:40 pm and departing Thursday at 11:30 pm. Air staying at the Vdara (no casino and no smoking) is $1,327. You also get 2 show tickets. I stayed there 2 years ago and I found it to be pretty good. Suppose to be a 5 star hotel.
Aria was $1,487 with no show tickets
Trump was $1,363 with no show tickets (I stayed there last year)
Mine you these are package deals and if you book separately they might differ in price.
Wow just remember that I was in Vegas last year at this time.
Also don't forget the $20 trick. I slipped $20 to the hotel clerk both times and got a free upgrade the Trump upgrade was unreal. The room was huge. The Vdara gave me a high floor overlooking the Bellagio fountains.
imho Neil starts to loose his edge a tiny bit before the hit (not that Orpik would have seen it). Don't expect anything to come of it -- but the irony of the situation (ie: if the positions had been reversed) i'm sure people would have been up in arms about it.
