    This has now become a group blackjack pool. This will be the first time we are doing this type of group event. I will try to cover all the rules. If there are any questions, please post them in this thread. We want to have fun and win money as a group!

    Buy-in amount: $500 - Please get a $500 chip from a table or cage to speed up the process
    Venue: Cosmopolitan high limit room - First floor
    Time: 10PM


    We will pool all the buy-ins together to have a combined bankroll which @broncofn will control. We have seen some of his great success in the past so we are handing him the keys to the car. As we don't want to distract or stress out the driver, please let him make all the decisions.

    There are some couches in front of the high limit bar. We will take care of registration and buy-ins here.

    Should we double the bankroll, we will take a break and make a decision whether to continue or keep going. If you wish to take your initial buy-in and winnings at this time, you're more than welcome to and pull out of the group.

    We will take a hard stop at 30 hands and (hopefully) distribute the funds among the remaining players.

    If the last hand we play is a split/double down scenario and there are not adequate funds to cover it, we will play it as a normal hand unless the group will cover the difference evenly.

    However, if we are running hot and hit 30 hands, we will play until we lose a hand and that will mark the end of the session.

    We will tip the dealer appropriately.

    There are just a few more rules than slots/video poker pulls. :) Let's try to keep it simple, have fun and not have some crazy hypothetical situations.

    @Evoni you can play my favorite Tabasco Country Store video slot while at Wynn. I believe you can play quarter denomination too. ;) I'm not sure what my plans are Saturday but I have Cosmo slot tournament. Not sure what time it's over for the day? If I'm not broke I'll play in this one or split the buy in with someone else if my bankroll is low.

    I have $400 FP at Wynn if I book the 3 free nights. I should have booked my brother there for Thursday night since I'm at Palazzo then had him move to PH on Friday when I move to Cosmo. I doubt I can get a comped room this late though because of the convention. I'll look at calendar and see, as that FP at Wynn would be nice to have as back up. Lol I'm hoping to put back a few winning TITO's and give them to someone ahead to pay for my pulls but it requires me winning. 6 nights is a long time to stretch my crappy bankroll. ;) @newmans the buy ins are usually always $500 and I'm guessing this will be a later pull because of slot tournament VM is in and awards ceremony.

    With the convention being done on Wednesday, you just may have some luck for a comp room being open- I will cross my fingers for you! I love free play with offers and $400 could be the lucky $$ of the trip! Keep us posted if you manage to still get comp nights out of Wynn!

    I'm looking now, and I'll let you know. I have to book the 3 free nights in a row to get the FP. Lol I thought G2E was Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday? This is the offer they sent. 1b409bad67d077d4d5a645e3f21807a4.jpg

    Oops yes, my bad- it is done Thursday....but I believe many leave immediately after rather than staying the weekend. That's my hope anyway!

    Nice. I didn't expect to see you so soon!

    Will you be throwing down at the poker table with @broncofn ?
