    I plan to hang out at the spa. Sounds more relaxing than playing chess.

    Nope. A shame the tournament isn't in summer time. Lounging by the pool is my specialty.

    December in Las Vegas? Be prepared for snow and airport closures.


     Only at original point of departure!!

    We go there every winter and have never had problems.

    We have flight/hotel package so if plane does not get there then we get full refund and I can get most of my tournament fees refunded.

    Of course, the goal is to play chess and gamble so I am not rooting for the refund (although I imagine a local Indian Casino would suddenly get my business with some of it).

    I don't feel like going there to much money and its like a 5 hour trip there

    I'm sure you could find one that requires less travel.
