I was in Las Vegas at a conference in early December. I played in the 3:00 p.m. daily Texas Hold’em tournament, Wednesday, Dec. 3rd, at Mandalay Bay.
- $50 Buy-in No Limit Texas Hold’em
- $1,000 in tournament chips
- Re-buys for the first 1/2 hour
- 30 player maximum
There were slightly fewer than 20 players, but plenty of rebuys, so, the payoffs were inflated.
Stats: I placed 4th. Top 14%. Payoff schedule was based on 28. Won $104.00.
Notes: Winner took $520.00. I got one miracle hand (which saved my tail as I was all in), otherwise I had to work for all I got. The cards were not overly generous.
