Hi VMB, I'll be in town on a M-T-W in October, and would like to play in one decent-sized tournament during my stay. I've been to poker atlas.com and scanned the daily tournament listings, and see several ones that interest me. Buy-in doesn't matter, anything up to $200 is fine. Aria, Venetian, Mirage, maybe Wynn look promising, I'd like to know which tournament fields the most players and/or has the biggest payout on those three days. I play enough rinky-dink tourneys at the tribal casinos back home, would hope to play one with more than two tables of the same sad faces. I realize the weekend tourneys are prolly much bigger, but can't swing a weekend trip this time. Staying downtown, will play at Binions and GN otherwise. Also, what are your personal midweek tournament favorites? Best, or cheapest, rake downtown? Strip? Hottest cocktail waitresses? Closest bathrooms? Best nearby eats? Thanks in advance!
