The New Wynn Poker Tournaments
I left off yesterday heading into the Wynn tournaments. It’s good to see that these mega resorts are actually taking note in the deep stack format and making the necessary adjustments.
The tourney buy-in was $225 and the starting stack is 20k. The blinds started at 50-100 which meant that sooner or later we would have to play some all-in poker, but nothing crazy in the first level.
The field size was 57 and 9 places paid. It seemed to go slower than the 5 hours it took to get to the final table. In the end, I would make it down to fourth, which was a gift from the other 5 players that busted because they just felt the need to push the action!
I would go to an early dinner about 6 and head back to the 8 p.m. version of the same tournament. This time, I wouldn’t last long, but would have some really crazy things happen in the 30 minutes I was in. First, I get to the table and am setting the purse, jacket, and other sundries down and the dealer deals me two cards. Almost as soon as I turn to get them, she MUCKS them. I ask why and she tells me that I’m not at the table. That’s interesting. I thought being between my seat and the table was ok?
I get the floor involved and he makes it clear that I had the right to that hand. This doesn’t make this particular dealer happy at all! She would put me on further tiltness when I was in a hand facing a raise and ask her how much it is to me. She tells me that it’s 4,100 which I put in. Then she tells me it’s more! Then snaps the chips up and tries to motion to me that there needs to be more!
I would get knocked out of this one rather quickly and was pretty happy to be gone! The venetian was the next stop where I would play some cash games and lose a little of the bankroll before calling it a night!
I am now heading back down to the Venetian Poker Room to get in the $150 daily tourney to get a little more action and hopefully bring home a little more money!
