    I count 16 people so far who say they're in town that night, but about half are staying Downtown - I think we need at least 10 players to make it worthwhile. (6/10 ETA): We have 10 players now, so it's on.
    (6/11 ETA): Moved to Venetian, Cosmo doesn't allow group pulls in the HL room.


    Basics (actually I guess more than basics now that I look at it, lol):
    • $200 buy in. Be prepared mentally to lose it all (see prior results below with the links to past events)
    • You can partner with someone if $200 is too much
    • You can buy more than one share if you want
    • Friends and family welcome to buy in or just watch
    • We collect the cash and determine the order of the pull right before it starts. We keep two envelopes - one for the unplayed pool and the other for banked TITOs after each player finishes
    • Each player selects their own machine, denom, etc.
    • Each player decides when to bank their winnings, stop early, or play down to zero. These tend to be obvious choices.
    • We have a player who has no tax liability and is not subject to withholding, we will use that person's card for all spins and he will press the button (at the direction of the player if desired) to make sure we don't get busted on a technicality
    • $20 tip from the pool for any handpays; players are free to tip more out of pocket if desired
    • Meet & Greet at 8:00pm, at The Dorsey bar at Venetian. The Dorsey is located next to Chica restaurant, on the Venetian end of the passageway to Palazzo
    • At the M&G, we'll have a couple of drinks and around 8:45pm, collect the pool money, and draw cards to determine the order of the pull. You're welcome to come to both the M&G and pull without committing to the slot pool. I'll buy a round for whoever's there at 8:15.
    • If you arrive after we've determined the play order, we'll add you to the bottom
    • The pull will begin at 9:00pm.
    • We will hold up a short amount of time for stragglers if we know you are on your way before 9:00pm, otherwise we start on time. Once the first spin occurs, no more new participants
    • Plan for about 5 minutes per player. Between 60 - 90 mins depending on how many players
    • When the last player finishes, we cash the TITOs and distribute the cash back to players. To make the math easier, we'll round off to something like the nearest $5 or $10 per player and then burn off the rest in one last-ditch set of spins. For example, on one pull we had 14 players and ended up with $2,850-something. So instead of returning $203.57 to everybody, everybody got their buy-in back and then we burned off the $50-something
    • Although I do want to gauge interest and get informal commitments in this thread for planning purposes, you don't have to RSVP in advance; if you show up with cash before the first spin occurs, you're in. I'm editing this post on June 10 because we now have critical mass to commit. If you add yourself from this point on, please give me your expected count for both the M&G and number of slot pull buy-ins. It's fine if it changes between now and then, I just want to have a decent idea.

    I would love to be there but we don’t get into town until 10:30 pm. So unfortunately I am out.

    I firmed up the times.

    8:00pm for the M&G
    9:00pm for the slot pull

    This gives people a little more padding if they have dinner plans, and also for people who are staying downtown.

    I have to wait a while and see what the count looks like before settling on a place for the M&G.

    We have 10 now, so:

    For players who have already joined and for new players, sometime in the next week or so if you can, please give me your expected count both for the M&G and number of people participating in the pool. It's fine if it ends up changing, I just want to have a working estimate.

    We're rethinking the location due to determining that Cosmo doesn't want group pulls happening inside their HL room. I'll post later today hopefully, or as soon as we make a decision.

    Hi Chuck- my wife and I fly in on the 5th (flight scheduled to land at 6pm)... Assuming our flight is on time, we'd like to join. We are staying at the Cosmo, but are flexible on the location, of course. Thanks!

    OK got you, hope your flight lands on time. Should be kind of a quiet day for travel I'd think.

    We are moving everything to Venetian, I think you'll have time to make the slot pull at least, and hopefully the M&G too (or at least part of it).

    OK I discussed with foreign agent. We're moving everything to Venetian.

    I love Cosmo and I understand their policy, but it would have cramped our style too much and made the logistics too difficult.

    No badmouthing Slot VP please, he's a great guy, done a ton of good things (and more to come) for average players, as we all know here.

    So:
    M&G is at 8:00pm at The Dorsey bar at Venetian
    Group pull is at 9:00pm in the HL slots room at Venetian

    I edited the OP again to reflect this, hopefully for the last time.

    Quick update: we are currently at 14 players for the slot pull. M&G count is not firm yet, but we usually end up with around the same number of people for both, plus or minus a couple.

    This is my first post in here, if I can be a maybe I will be in town, staying at Caesar’s. If I finish visiting family early enough I will try to get there to join!

    As long as you arrive by 9:00pm, you're in...

    We added one player over the weekend, so we're now at 15, plus 3 maybes.

    Thanks. 16 is a good size. I'm always surprised by the number of people who don't get active on the boards until right before a trip, so we may add a couple more by the time it rolls around.
