    Any info on how a VP tourney is played out? I played in a Slot tourney a number of years ago at Aladdin/PH, but not sure how a VP tourney works. Am not as an "accomplished" VP player as I see some folks playing-- feverishly deal/hold/draw etc. like a machine on automatic mode. I just casually play my hand while chatting and have to pay some attention to what I am holding or discarding. LOL Res agent made it seem as if I was being offered two "entries" so If I get knocked out i can use my second entry to get back into tourney. Am i missing something or is this diff than slot tourn? I assumed was played the same format: Play 2-3 sessions and your score/points are accumulated and ranked highest to lowest resulting in final standings for tourn.

    Secondly, Fiancee and I are BOTH entered into the Tournament. Staying at Ballys in same room... safe to assume they will schedule each of our "sessions" at same time? Certainly not planning to hang out at Rio for hours at a time over multiple days to accomodate 2 separate time slots. Anyone have and input? Would appreciate any insights.

    You will play 3 - 15 minute sessions over 2 days, 2 sessions day 1, 1 session day 2. They are timed so the faster you play the more hands you will play and the better the chance of winning. Depending on when you register you are usually able to select your day 1 start time which will determine all 3 session times.

    After the tournament is over you can receive your free play one at the casino cage of the property you want to redeem the free play at by simply showing your id and total rewards card.

    good luck

    Typically DDB, also usually 9/6 (since it's free roll anyway)
