I used to love playing in them when they were not akin to an Online MTT with near 1000 players in many events. I would rather play at the Rio, but the Binion days were much cozier and better imo. Just a crazy mass of people now. I don't even dream of playing in the ME anymore, cause back in the "old days" it really seemed to be more like the World Championship. I would get the BUG again if they moved the buyin to like 50K or more to thin the field (Of course I can not afford the 10K but I would at least try to get in a 50K Event).
When I am in town during WSOP
I mostly play the lively cash games (and tournaments) around town (a lot of time spent at Ballys)
