Binions have a nice little $10k guarantee comp, $150 buy in.

Also, smaller buy in, their $70 + $40 rebuy comp aint too bad either - managed to chop one of those 5 ways Wink

Thanls Paul, I'll try that.

In '05, we were Updating the WSOP Semi-Final I think - maybe the Final, & it finished very late. Jen, bobby1 & myself all dashad across to Binions & played in  $150 Freeze that began at Midnight, but you could enter up to 2am. bobby1 & myself both Finalled, & they played it on the "old" Binions Final Table, a sort of backlit-on-a-plinth affair, huge fun. bobby1 - image total Rock - Raised my Blind, & I passed showing 6-5. He showed 5-4. Never forgiven him, never will. I think I got $2k for 5th or something, but I'm 1 from 1 there!

The Cattery just rung to say Angell is fine.

I took him earlier today, put him in a cat-box & loaded him into the car, & he howled, the whole way. He was very upset. Not half as upset as I was, mind. I'm nerver gonna put him in a Cattery again, he is scared of travelling in a car. My Cat-Sitter is on holiday, so I had no choice.

I booked him a little suite. Got an upstairs, with a little cat-igloo, & a nice posh downstairs, with toys & stuff. He can see his neighbour cat-boarders, who are in regular cat holiday flats - not so posh, like.

It must be hell for folks with dogs, when they go on holiday.

Never again.

Phew, thanks John! I'll play the lot......

What does it mean - taking the very last one as an example......

Wynn NL Hold'em Fr, SNG $130 $25 80%

What do the last 2 figures represent - the $25 & the 80%?

60% WHAT? They return 60% of the Prize Pool to the players? And charge $20 juice on a $50 Tourney. That can't be right, surely? Tell me it ain't so.

That's incredible, and then they pay tax on winnings as well!

It must be virtually impossible to turn a profit playing these kind of comps regularly.

I'm astonished!

So if 50 players enter a $100 Freeze, the Net Prize Pool is $3,000?


Jeeeeeezzzzzz

Mainly Americans play these, I guess.........
