I'm going to Vegas this year to celebrate my seventy years on this earth by spending a week playing tournaments. I have done research on the tournaments in town and South Point has quite a few, and they are in my price range. What I am wondering is approximately how many tables do their tournaments usually have, how many seats the tables have, and most importantly...is it a nice place to play? Thank you for any help or suggestions you can offer. :)

PS - Are there any good diners nearby for breakfast. I love diners and diner food. :)

I played my first live tourney there last October 2021 and loved it, it has lots of tables and the staff is great! I did cash out, but ended up having a dude pissed off at me during the game and griped at me during break, I didn't care, but it was my first live tourney experience, well aside from some small tourneys locally. Anyways, it's a great place to play, I just don't play there because I can't afford or want the ubers to get to another tourney if I bust out because I am that impatient lol. All you need is within that place, the food is excellent, plenty of games, plenty to do between tourneys. I made the mistake of walking to wal-mart to get things (food etc) thinking things were going to be expensive lol, (just the idiot in me) I have a post about it somewhere. (But also because I love to walk and think, thats besides the point :)) Everything is very reasonably priced. The hotdog stand inside the place for like a buck is amazing! lol. There is no reason to really even leave South Point once you are there, it has it all! If you bust out of a tourney, there is another around the corner. South Point is the perfect spot for a poker player! Request to use their airport shuttle to and from! Saves heaps!

A bit of a tangent, but are you just looking at downtown casinos or considering anything off strip? I had a really good experience playing in a series at the Orleans last year, which is about a mile off strip by New York, New York. If you're considering other options I'd see if they're running a series while you're down there too.

Happy birthday!

I will definitely give them a try. According to the list published by CardPlayer Orleans has daily tourneys in the $100-$150 range which is perfect for me, and what I'm used to. Thank you! :)

Thank you as well for the birthday wishes! ❤️
