    Hey guys,

    I just got invited to my first BJ tournament at the Venetian/Pallazo.

    Here is the payout structure.

    $100,000 PRIZE POOL
    1st: $50,000
    2nd: $15,000
    3rd: $10,000
    4th: $6,000
    5th: $4,000
    6th: $3,000
    7th-18th: $1,000 each

    Prizes are paid out in Promotional chips.

    Anyways, Im a big BJ player but never played a BJ tournament in my life so I'll have to do some research on that.

    Does anyone on this board get invited to these tournaments? Im stoked that it was a free entry for me :). I thought it was interesting that it pays out in promotional chips. Maybe I wont have to pay taxes if its in promotional chips.

    I only play cash BJ tournaments (where the top prizes are cash)....go through all the trouble of playing in a tournament then you have to use the promo chips to actually win cash. Not worth it to me...but that is my opinion.

    I've received these over the past year. Would have liked to attend the Shaq one but couldn't. Probably won't make this one as I want to go for SB or the week before the tourney for a concert at the HR. I may see if I can go last minute if either fall through. Not happy about going at the same time as AVN. Not a prude, just know some people who have been involved.

    yes, get invites all the time - but Mlife based, not Venetian. Almost always paid in promo chips. This means no W2G tax form.

    Here is another short, recent thread with pictures of other invites:
