I just returned and wanted to let LVMB members know of a good tournament deal. Bally's 11am now offers a $2,500 guarantee tournament and the day I played it only had 16-18 players. Top 3 places were paid, and when it got to 6-handed we chopped for $416. Except for one player, all stacks were average size, but at this blind level even the big stack was "short stacked" as he had about 1/3 more chips than the next closest player. It was a weak structure, but +EV. $100 buy-in, $5k starting stacks and, as I recall, the blinds double every 15 minutes (perhaps 20?). Toward the end it becomes push-and-pray. The guy next to me and I got some beats put on us early, but somehow we both hit an AI (I sucked out for once!) so we both cashed. Nice players, nice dealers & mgmt.
