Five days left in WSOP’s DIY bonus. I feel like I never want to see another card again. So far, I’m about $500 up, not a good two weeks normally, but the $2000 bonus will make it worth it. Even if I break even, I’ll consider the bonus a successful half month. But this will be my last grind of its kind. Today, I was playing with ease. I was making hands and getting calls, things were fine. When I
Update 6:04pm Sep 15: This article was in error as to the Happy Hours. The double APPs do not count toward cashback. They only count toward loyalty status. Updated to reflect this. WSOP.com is billing their late September tournament series as an Online Circuit event, which presumably means the winners will receive rings. For tournament players, this adds some events to play that may bring out more recreational players. But, are you aware of the cash game promos WSOP.com is
It’s strange to be back in Las Vegas, playing against players from New Jersey. I didn’t miss the merge purposely, I had an Asia vacation planned a year ago for those months, but now I wish I was still in Asia. I’ll try to post an article with a more in-depth opinion of WSOP after the merge in a week or so. For now, I’m adjusting back to playing stateside. New Jersey grinders It feels more like New Jersey than Nevada.
In back to back months, WSOP has offered a DIY bonus. In the DIY bonus, the player is awarded a bonus based on the amount of poker they play in a 7 day period. I’m always a fan of bonuses of course and if it becomes a regular thing, it will be a nice $200 bonus every month for most grinders. I am a little worried that with this new strategy there will be no more month long DIY bonuses
After seeing the group of players I was put in for my week with the Tricks of the Trade promo, I’m wondering if they did in fact group us a little based on the limits or amount of time we play. There seem to be a large number of grinders in my group whereas the Icons group has few. That is no matter, if I set my mind to winning the leaderboard, I would have a good shot now that Whiteyslacks
Que Bath and Spa at Caesars Palace Las Vegas One major benefit for Seven Stars members, especially local Las Vegas members, is the free access to the Fitness Center and Spa at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. I’ve been enjoying the gym and the spa regularly since earning Seven Stars last year. Caesars Palace Spa Unlike the other spas in the Total Rewards portfolio, the Que Bath and Spa at Caesars feels like a true luxury spa experience and not just
I woke up today to a new email from WSOP.com with an interesting promo and I thought I’d share my thoughts on it. First though, I’d like to get one gripe out of the way. All casino promos should provide more than one day’s notice. I received the email on February 11 and the promo starts on February 12. If I wanted to reschedule some other events in my life to play it, that doesn’t leave me much time. Ok,
Twice! That’s how many times you get your Seven Stars benefits the first time you achieve the level. You get your $500 dinner celebration twice! You get your Annual Retreat twice! The catch is that it takes a while to receive your Seven Stars membership for the first time and the benefits do not load for another week or so after that. Finishing up before the New Years This was my idea: I’d take a trip to my favorite hotel
Accruing almost 80,000 Total Rewards points in 2015 only through online poker play on WSOP.com suggested to me that reaching the coveted Seven Stars level at 150,000 points in 2016 was not out of the question. Though I intended at the start of the year to do the whole thing with online poker, it quickly became apparent that was not possible, at least not without playing too much poker and likely suffering for it with a lower earn rate –
This has been a long and eventful year with tons of traveling and tons of poker. I’m ready to increase the traveling and reduce the poker! When I set out to reach Seven Stars at the beginning of the year, I didn’t quite understand the stress it would put on me. It’s just a tad too much play on a monthly basis. In fact, I probably would have given up if not for some bonus points awarded through a promotion.
