WPBT Winter Classic 2012

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

Oh yes, it’s that time again. If you missed the tweets earlier this month, the date is set for December 1, at Aria. We’ll have the regular tournament schedule they use (minus the rebuys) and stay tuned for details on last longer team coordination.

We’ll also have some games going for us on Friday the 30th, though this time I’m moving it to earlier in the day – say mid-afternoon; as the past couple of years it’s been near impossible to round up enough folks to start a table around 8 or 9pm. (Hitting the bar with the just off the plane folks is way more enticing). If you’re one of the ones to arrive Friday evening, never fret – it’s not hard to get a blogger game going somewhere (and besides, you want a drink anyway).

The wonderful folks at Aria are once again extending the poker room rate to us. That rate is $99 + tax + resort fee Sunday through Thursday; then $139 + tax + resort fee Friday & Saturday. If you’d like to book, send me the info but PLEASE help me out and submit it in the following format. I started a new job in San Francisco last month, which is awesome, but the commute has pretty much killed off most of my “down” time – so please, do me a favor and make it stupid simple for me.

This weekend does again coincide with the Rock N Roll Las Vegas Marathon, which supports a great cause, and which many of your fellow bloggers are planning to run this year (or at least they said they were!). I’m sure we’ll have a cheering squad like last year – more details to come.

Please RSVP on Facebook so I have at least a rough count of how many we’ll be this year.

And more details to come in general – but now you can make your flights and book your rooms – IT’S ON.
