    Hi All,

    Looks like I will be in Vegas for both of the final table nights!

    Has anyone had any experience checking out the Rio on those nights?

    Is it worth a look to see if any big names are there or to experience the WSOP vibe?

    Thanks

    J

    There will be a number of big name players there on those nights. Whether it is worth hanging out near the event to see them is for you to decide.

    I'd go and snap a few pics if I was in town those nights, why not? Very cool/unique thing to see on the P&T stage.

    (Next year I may be playing at that final table!)

    I went for the final heads-up play the first year when Peter Eastgate won. Hopefully the Rio has their act together since then because it was about a two-hour wait in line and just mass confusion when they finally opened the doors. There was a handful of name poker players we recognized on the stage, but at the end of the day you're too far away to really see anything so you end up looking at the monitors to see what's happening.

    It was amusing to see people who waited two hours in line start leaving after 30 minutes. Apparently they thought it would only last as long as it does on TV. (It ended up going about 4.5 hours ... we left after 3 hours because it was 1 a.m. and our body clocks were still on Eastern time).

    I'm glad I went to say that I was there, but it's not something I'd do again. I preferred walking through the tables during the celebrity event a couple years earlier and seeing Brad Garrett and James Woods.
