Live updates: Harrah’s Laughlin WSOP Satellite

Harrah’s Laughlin is sold out. You wouldn’t really know to look at it, but apparently it’s a 1600-room hotel. Tiny by Las Vegas standards but pretty big for Laughlin. And it’s sold out.

I know this because they told me when I checked in last night, and they told the couple next to me too. Then a random guy in the elevator told me the same thing.

I don’t think I’ve ever been in Laughlin on a weekend before so I don’t know if it’s normal, but it sounds like it’s pretty big news.

I was too late to register for my tournament last night so I still have no idea how it is going to work, when it will start or how many runners are in it. The hotel being full is not a good sign, as they originally told me that 400 rooms were reserved for this promotion.

I can still register at 11am, apparently. I have a suspicion that it might be a shootout format but I’ve put up a blank graph anyway in case there’s something worth reporting on. Click the graph to see the page with comments, there might be something interesting to tell – you never know!

EDIT: I’m registered to play at 4pm.  At 10am there was a group about to start and my choice was 2pm or 4pm.  There’s about a dozen tables in the room, so 400 runners is a definite possibility!  The structure will be kinda fast too…

  • In case the graph didn’t make it clear, I’ve made it through to the second round of the WSOP satellite. I play again at midday (8pm UK time).Not sure if I’ll bother with a chip graph this time, it was pretty intense trying to keep up with meaningful up
