    Wynn daily 12pm $140 / 10k chips / 30 min levels
    Aria daily 1pm $125 / 10k chips / 30 min levels
    Venetian daily 12:05pm / $150 / 12k chips / 30 min levels + has a small guarantee.

    Any idea how many runners these have each been getting? Last time I was out (before my WSOP trip) Aria seemed to be the popular one. Is that still the case?

    They all have their pluses and minuses. Aria looks like the best structure at first glance, and then you realize they skip 75/150 at level 3 so by level 4 or 5 all 3 tournaments end up running around the same structure. I'd probably just play the Aria since it's cheapest, even though I think the rake might be 2-3% more than the other 2.

    Not sure on participation lately but I'd be surprised if Aria wasn't the busiest.

    I stand corrected, most recent Tuesdays I could pull up at each:

    Venetian: 77 players, $9,086 prize pool
    Aria: 66 entries, $6,402 prize pool
    Wynn: 39 entries, $4,680 prizes pool

    So Aria and Venetian are comparable, although higher guarantee prize pool and slightly higher buy-in at Venetian. That may be my target then. Thanks!

    I'd go with Venetian as well. Decent # of runners and structure for the buy in, and generally well run.
