      Sounds awesome fella! I'm planning a trip for January 2013. The delay is due to attempting to con some non grinding but poker/nude women/excessive alcohol consuming sympathetic mates into saving up and joining me!

      It sounds like a decent whack of time there too. Does this cover WSOP dates?

      Think they've designed it to fit in with a wsop side event.

      Confirming provisional interest, subject to grinding out the monies, passport etc.

      Hey guy,

      Have an awesome time,

      Wish I could make it, but don't have the $$$,

      Slightly off topic, but what is the quality of poker like in Vegas? I saw it starts at NL100, what is the equivalent in quality in online play? In my mind Vegas is full of people trying poker for the first time but I have no idea

      @ Toby, Looks like I'm doing a double.
      @ waiboy, pretty much what bart said is correct. We are going to try and go to the FTP party.
      @ Bart, I want to see a Step 9 ticker in 2 weeks. hehe
      @ peche, Unlucky, but yes, the standard of play is horrible compared to online.
      @ ihufa, me and martin were hoping you would magically turn 21. Do you mind if we put secret headsets in our ears and ask you what to do when we are versing ivey in bobbys room HU?

      ihufa, you don't count as you can always grind out enough money for a veges trip in about 4days which is unfair on the rest of us ;)

      During the summer weekends it's pretty bad. Most of the players will understand the basics, but they don't pay attention well. Nut peddling becomes a profitable strategy because so many people will fail to recognize you aren't playing any pots and will pay you off.

      One thing that might be strange for people who have never played live is the difference in pacing. It might take you 3-4 hours to get in 100 hands and you can't multitable. So big mistakes are more costly it terms of your hourly.

      Ok, so this Vegas trip is a definite. :f_biggrin:

      Some details:

      AIRFARE: atm, we're looking at $1050 AUD return, this is from Australia so you guys would have to work out your own country of course.

      Here's some links for you:
      webjet.com.au
      OR
      the cheapest are delta.com and united.com

      Arrive in Vegas 16th June - leaves 30th, but we want to spend a few days in San Francisco.

      ACCOM: Room rates should be USD $40/night at the Golden Nugget.

      so 15 nights = 600USD, halved obviously if your sharing a room with someone.
      OR
      we could look into some apartments with several people. But I'd need definite numbers for obvious reasons.

      Breakfast buffets are like $10 US
      and are all day lol :s_biggrin:

      Any more questions, give Martin or myself a yell.

      Regards,

      Kyle.
