Any cheapish tourneys Sunday am?
what you consider cheap would help. $50 at the mirage or you can look on all vegas poker.com
Under $100, centre strip if possible. The site you mention isn't up to date.
I can't speak for now because I am not there, but All Vegas Poker is by far the most up-to-date of the various Vegas poker sites.
My gang makes a fall pilgrimage to Vegas just for $100-buyin games, and on Sundays we have had success at South Point for a game that starts at 10:00 AM (We usually start our Sunday there, then head to a bar to watch the NFL).
The Monte Carlo has a cheap tourney every morning at 9. MGM has one at 11.
Define 'center strip' and that might help.
All Vegas Poker is up to date. It's not their fault all these poker rooms keep listing tournaments that never run because they can't get enough players.
LOL so true. Vegas runs way too many daily tourneys for the demand.
Also to the OP, why the hell are you up and wanting to play poker before noon on a Sunday?
Stay up playing poker until at least 4am Saturday night; problem solved.
I actually had a friend that once tried to tell me I should be sleeping while in Vegas.
They never found his body.
Some say if you wander around the baccarat bar at the Bellagio you can still here his voice whisper "man, I'm exhausted, no more blackjack today let's go take a nap, I'm so tired". But I think that's just old ghost stories gamblers tell their friends.
Sam's Town 10 am and cheap
For two reasons this may not be what you want.
First, it is a good long way from the strip. You'd have to want to play other things as well, like the 9/6 VP with progressive or some of the only full pay Deuces wild to be found in all of Vegas.
Or maybe you want to play a bit of 2-6 spread limit with full kill just for some variety in your trip. That cash game will start before the tournament ends and generally have an Aces cracked promotion, perhaps black Aces only. It may not be a soft game. It may be full of regulars, but it is good poker perhaps because of that. It won't be full of maniacs.
The tournament is pretty soft. It will generally include people who have never played poker before as well as regulars who will play well.
The second reason it may not be to your taste is that the tournament starts with limit poker before it goes to no limit. So unless you have a good bit of morning time to kill, you can't just go, go all in , and see what happens. You are going to have to play a while at this tournament.
However, you can count on it being spread every day and it is a lot of poker for the money.
Getting there from the strip by the free shuttle is hit or miss from Harrah's because the shuttle arrives at 10 and that is when the tournament starts. Usually, you can join late, during the first hour of limit poker, but you can't count on that.
I like better to go earlier on the 202 along Flamingo.
From downtown the free shuttle arrives at 10:15, so the city bus is the way to go and right now it is very fast. Right now getting the HDX takes just 16 minutes. After July 7 that route changes and the other bus that goes to Sam's Town, the BHX takes longer as it has more stops. That might take a half hour.
Exact location of the HDX stop downtown for pickup is a bit difficult. Details are in the latter part of this post
Skim down for the bold type HDX/BHX
Except on Sunday, breakfast at the buffet is just $6 or free with an American Casino Guide coupon and 200 points of play, or with your earlier gambling at other Boyd: Main Street station, Fremont, California, Orleans, Gold Coast.
Points earned gambling there or on live poker are part of the B Connected system and will transfer
