Title says it all. I am thinking of making the bucket list trip to Vegas with some friends for the WSOP. Curious how many other chippers are planning to attend the event.

I went in 2007 and 2009 but not going this year. Found the best deals on the Vegas.com site (compared with Priceline, Expedia, Orbitz, etc) but YMMV since it's been years since I've been. Hope you'll share some pics and a trip report with us, have fun and win big!

Thanks. I will check out the vegas site you suggest. I have used it before and the prices were good.

http://www.wsop.com/2015/ also has rate deals for the event.

I can't afford the main event but may be playing the daily's which are $275 I think. Hopefully, I can get the time off to go.

When I went I didn't play any WSOP tourneys but did hit plenty of cash games all around. For tourneys I opted for the Venetian Deepstack instead of the Caesars series that was running because they had larger attendance and a better structure.

I had Kings, was the second raiser and got it all-in against a third raiser who had AK and sent me home with an Ace on the river, so wasn't in for any appreciable amount of time. There'll be a good mix of pro's and recreational players.

I'm 99% sure I'll be going to cover (and play in) the Colossus. Am going to profile people who, like me, are playing in their first WSOP event, so if you're going, definitely let me know either here in the thread or send me a DM.

Ouch kings cracked on the river.

Cool. I will definitely hit you up if my schedule works out. Several guys from my local crew are going as well.

the Aria has a real nice tourney. I've played in it quite a few times and cashed twice. One min cash and one nice one in 11th place. Be careful early on since its a rebuy tourney (Unless you are the rebuying type).

Super bummed... looks like based on my work schedule I will likely not make it this year since I'll have a new project to run on top of my current one... I'm supposed to get a 2 month sabbatical off within the next two years... maybe I can time it for next year.

I'm curious to see if any chippers meet up this year though. Post pics if you do!
