Hi all,

I left a message in last year's thread to say that this year's Vegas schedule is still unknown, because of a new arrival, called baby Jack. This year's schedule will be the Main Event, and hopefully more. With a later decision time on the rest of the package, depending on how it all goes, I thought I would sell for the one certainty, the Main Event, separately.

(At a current guess, for anyone wondering how much other investment is likely to be possible, I would say that there is most likely to be about one week of side events sold at 1.0)

I will play the Main Event on Day 1C (what in my opinion now is definitely the best starting day), on Friday July 5th, selling at 1.15, so

0.5%- $57.50
1%- $115
2%- $230
5%- $575
10%- $1150

At the moment, I will limit to 10% per person, to give last year's stakers a fair chance to buy. I will update soon if that 10% max can be increased

There is no ideal way to sort the currency exchange rate, so I think the best way may be to lock the £ to % rate indiviudally on whichever day each person sends, make a note of it, and use that rate for any monies back. As a guide, $115 is today £88.32.

It's difficult to trace back through memory, but I think I first played the Main Event in 2009, and have played it eight times in total, cashing twice. The cashes came in 2014, when I finished 59th for $124k, and 2015, when I min cashed for $19,500. The last three years have been tougher. 2016 was a day two exit. In 2017, I learnt a lesson that day 1A may be the toughest, as I had a table that would look tough in an EPT 5k side event. In 2018, a day two surge came to a crashing halt as I had to take a frustrating race for a 400k stack in strange circumstances.

The structure is wonderful, the field wonderfully varied, and the starting stack has been increased to 60,000 this year. And now, being a 35 year old father, I may have the advantage of a tight rep.

Payment is best by bank transfer or Moneybookers.

Thanks all

How much are you selling?   Could I get 2% if still available?  Cheers.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots
