no breaks are not long enough to go to your room

I just got done playing the WSOP Circuit event at AC.

The 10 minute breaks were long enough for me to get to my room and piss vs. standing in line to use the over-flowing bathrooms. I did this for 3 events and my room was on the 4th floor.

It worked out great & I always got back in time.

I've never been to AC, but I'm guessing that the poker room and your hotel room were in the same building. At Caesars Indiana, the poker room is in a boat floating on the Ohio river. The hotel is not.

Yes, the hotel & casino are in the same building(s) in Atlantic City.

Thanks for the insight on the separate boat & hotel. I did not know that about Indiana Caesars.

As far as the overall schedule goes, I don't see the point in the $300 events at all when there are low $ "daily cash" tournaments.

Also the only non-NLHE choices seem to be a $500 rebuy PLO and the $1K HORSE. I'd love to play the HORSE tournament, but since I've never played ORS or E live, $1K seems a bit high. Where are they going to find players for that?

good question, i even asked the poker room manager about the new schedule adn he talked about how they only got 150 players or so for the 1k-1.5ks and 100 for the 2k. But this horse will be lucky to get 50, so i dont get the point

Thanks for all the tips so far.

Took a trip to St. Louis last week for a little refresher course in live tournament play.

Played 5 tournaments for a total of $415 in buy-ins. Made two final tables but, unfortunately, only one cash for $628 (9th place for zero cash in a 50-man event that only paid 5 places).

Looking forward to Caesar's.

I was also wondering if the casino allows and/or participates in chop deals at the table.

If I'm heads up with a $5000 seat to the ME on the line and agree to split with the other guy, will the casino handle this or will we have to trust each other to not pull a "fast one".

if neither one of you have a seat yet, someone has to take the seat. So if you want to do this, you just need to carry plenty of cash, you give the guy $2500 or whatever and you take the seat. Pretty simple

I see several "name" pros took part in the first Circuit event in Indiana when the ME buy-in was $10,000.

Most of the Circuit Main Events are now $5,000 buy-in. Has this caused fewer pros to make the trips to these Circuit events?
