El Cortez is a couple of hundred yards off the bottom of fremont st. Terry was concerned when we went to have a look, a safer bet downtown might be the Las Vegas club on the corner of the top end of the street opposite the Plaza.

Pot Limit 08...22nd June....yummy!
Don't you fly home on the 23rd? I thought all of these were 2 day events.


Nope...danke gott!

Actually Paulie, that's bad news for you i guess as I'll be in the field and so you'll be fighting for 2nd and below.

So, any more for any more on the poker express this year? I look to be spunking fortunes on this years flights, so prob no WSOP entry. In turn this is probably a wise idea as there is lots of more beatable games in town.

Still debating the merits of Emirates to UK followed by Virgin as opposed to Emirates all the way to LAX and then a short haul to LAS.

I'm also asking in case anyone wants to share a room before I go booking the single occupancy.

Rick....make sure any booking you make is cancellable & refundable....I think (from some vague internet rumblings I've heard) that there may be some deals coming.

I monitor a few sites regularly and even though I'm already booked, I keep checking..

FatWallet.com ...check the Vegas Deals Thread (start at the end)

Looking closer and closer to the real thing now. Vitally, Mrs T has signed off on it as she is going to fly to LAX with me and then go on a wine/driving holiday with her mate up to San Francisco.

Going to limit it to 10 nights, 19th through 29th June (flexible, of course) and might just stay at the Sahara as it's handy enough and cheap as fook. Once I get the dates signed off on Monday, I'll be away!

Dude...seriously, I'd avoid the Sahara....I've read TripAdvisor reports (several) about bed-bugs.

You might as well stay at the Stratosphere (it's just as close) and Jim & Jase will be on-site.

Otherwise...did you look at Harrah's? For Sahara money you could stay at the IP or Harrah's

10 nights on your dates, Strat direct $449.61 inc tax and resort fee, Expedia £268.54 I don't know what that equates to in camel droppings?

1,645AED using dollars or just 1,475AED using pounds. The British economy really is toilet, isn't it?! hahah!

So is the Strat worth having? I seemto remember that after your last trip you said you were sacking it off??
