Anybody else going to this tournament, Dec 26 - 30, 2011 in Las Vegas?
Chess and gambling....you know you want to.
cool you might see erik there.
I hope so. I can talk him into hiring me to be his accountant.
Met Erik at the summer Las Vegas event in June '09.
So he's real?
As far as I can tell. Although according to him he has lost a few pounds since then.
i went last year and a couple others, it's a LOT of fun. not SURE on this year, but i'm sure going to try. i'm at 60% yes.
Looks like we would be in same section - U1700
I plan to hang out at the spa. Sounds more relaxing than playing chess.
You're not going to play?!
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.
But probably not as awesome...
