    Can you tell me how this tournament works? I got an offer including it but it appeared to be specific to MGM Grand. What does trifecta mean with respect to the tournament? Are we required to be at multiple properties to play? Thanks.

    Each property sends the top 3 winners plus 3 wild card drawings to the MGM for the finale on day 2. I made it via the latter last year. Hoping for the former this year.

    In my experience you have to RATE to buy in. Example, my son and I are going down this Thursday for the MBay $500 buy in. It will be my 3rd Mlife buy in for the year which means I get the 4th finale in December free. Even tho son just won a s**tload online and would like to BUY IN, he can't. My host says Corporate won't allow it.But knew that already. He needs a history of play and he has little. But we gonna get the gambol on this coming weekend.

    Yes - and rating thresholds are much different at each MGM property (i.e. Aria is much higher than NYNY or MB). Aria must have much bigger high rollers

    I think Bellagio and Aria are prob on par with the rollers. Did one buy in with each this year so far and STAYED there. (I love the Bellagio floor, however I actually CAME HOME WITH MONEY when I stayed Aria for the tourney this year.) I did the finale last December (at B if I remember) but I stayed at MB and hoofed it over there for the tournament. Won't do that again. Gonna STAY where the tournament is. And host had said she'd limo me over but still,,that's $20 bucks, $20 bucks. I did get into a finale couple years ago and we all got limo'd to B, but sharing the tip is better with couple other people.

    I'M TRYING to cut down my trips. I used to do 8 per year, now I'm down to just 4. Not sure where I'm gonna stay for the December finale but prob B as that's usually where the Holiday Gift Shop and tournament is. I've got Liz at Mbay, Elise at Aria, Michael at B. Will see how this weekend goes and might go back in August. All over the map. Still waiting for my IRS money to come. I coulda used that money for this weekend.

    Ok fine. I just booked Air today for the Finale Buy in at B. (you get the 4th free if you've bought in for 3 already)..And I think I have a busload of holiday gift shop points this year as I got an extra 50,000 at one of the tournaments, and an extra 100,000 at another. (ya know when your machine gets called at the beginning of the tournament). Hopefully I can find something to purchase. Last year I just got some svwarski (SPELLING) crystal earring and necklace set, (which I feel like my MOM as I wear it) as I DIDN'T NEED ANOTHER FREAKING 60 INCH TV...and previously got my sons some really nice watches over the years. I guess I should look at my points.

    I’m booked and playing at the Mirage. Doing this instead of the $2m invitational. Looking forward to a good time with a smaller overall investment :) at least I hope... lol

    Thanks - I finished in 1st place day 1 last year in one of Bellagio's trifecta tournaments - and didn't get a thing for it - other than entry into the grand finale the next day and a guarantee of at least $1,000 in free play.

    At least I can win $10,000 on day 1 this time, not to mention $100,000 on day 2.
