    I had posted most of this earlier and also in another thread here. A couple of people asked me to send them this info, but my mind has left me and I can't remember who exactly they all were, so I am reposting this the following info. Should you have any other questions, add them to this thread, and I will try to get answers for you.

    The Grand has a tournament running every day during the WPO @ 4pm. Buy ins range from $100 to I think the big one is $500.
    Sams Town is not running any tournaments that I am aware of during this time...but they do spread a 3/6 HE game, but don't look for there to be much going on there. The GoldStrike will have 3/6 HE and Omaha hi/lo, and 1-5 Stud. It IS true that the GoldStrikes poker tables are non smoking, but the poker room itself, which is also full of video poker machines, is NOT non smoking. You just have to step away from the table to smoke.
    I don't know yet what the Horseshoe is doing as far as smoking...I've heard a couple of things..I've heard the room itself will be non smoking, with smoking tables in the pit area, and I've heard it will be the same as last year, where seats 1 thru 5 are smoking and 6 thru 10 non smoking..I've also heard it will remain all, I don't have any officail word on that. The Horseshoe will be spreading the white chip ($1) and read chip ($5) games....4/8, Omaha and HoldEm, 10/20 and 20/40 HoldEm and possibly some 30/60. Most 30/60 and higher limit games will be spread in the tournament room on the 2nd floor of the Goldstrike. Anywhere you play ring games during the first 2 wks of the WPO, you can expect there to be waiting lists.

    Again, let me remind you...when you get to the casinos..go to the Players Club desk and get a players card. Each casino issues their own and uses them for giving comps for meals and you put them in slot machines to earn points that translate to $$$$. The normal rate is 1000 pts, = $25. If you play table games, present them when you buy in and your play will be rated toward comps. You have to ask for what you want. Don't be afraid to ask...the worst that can happen is they tell you
    As far as eating, you should have no trouble getting free meals anywhere you play. You can get a ticket from the floor person in the tournament room at the WPO for the buffet set up for the players, or to use in one of the GS resturants, and at the Horseshoe, you can get a comp for the Village Square Buffet, or the snack bar, or if you prefer to keep your seat while you eat, they will have food service available at your table from the snack bar. The Grand also offers buffet comps to players, and food service during the game, tableside.
    If you decide to leave your game to go eat and want to keep your seat...wait until a new dealer comes into the game, and take one hand from the new dealer then get up to go eat. This gives you the maximum hour and fifteen minutes to be away from the game without being "picked up". If you are gone longer than the allowed time, you chips will be picked up by the brush, cashed out and the money put in an envelope with your table and seat # on it, placed in a locked drawer and you must get it returned to you from the floor person. At the Horseshoe, if you are picked up for being away too long, if you tell the Brush person (that's the guy with the list) will be the first person put back into a game.
    Hope these lil tips help any of you who may not be familiar with proceedures in casino poker rooms.
