Please confirm a couple of things for me. I have re-read through some of the previous threads, and just want to make sure I am clear on :

1) the PSO tourney and seminar are at the Goldstrike with the tourney being 6 pm on the 9th, and the seminar at 10 am on the 11th.

2) PSO'ers who are attending are staying at both the Horseshoe and the Goldstrike...( and other places for those who didn't get rooms..)

3) There will be some sort of Meeting Place at the Goldstrike where we can sorta hang out..

4) Most of the tourney action for the WPO will be at the Horseshoe..but live action will be at both places with the lower limit live games being at the Horseshoe.

If I am off base or missing anything important, please post it here!!

Thanks in advance!!

all of the tourny action takes place at the goldstrike. as the horseshoe doesnt have the room for it. also, the large bet games, as in pot limit ring games and such, with massive amounts of money on the table, are in the tourny room at the goldstrike. the horseshoe has the 10/20 20/40 and 4/8 games. the rest of what you said seems to be correct. good luck and hope to see you there.

The Horseshoe and Gold Strike are sister hotels right next to each other, Basically one hotel. Sheraton right there also.

One itty bitty correction...lol
The Gold Strike and the Horseshoe are not "related" in any way. The WPO tournamnet is a co-operative "joint venture" only because the Horseshoe does not have enough hotel rooms or the extra banquet type room space to hold the event. You walk out of the door of one, cross a side street, on the property, and into the other..they sit side by side. The Gold Strike ( a Mandalay Bay property) has a 31 story Hotel (the tallest bldg in the state of Ms). The Horseshoe (owned by Jack Binon) has 500 rooms.
The Gold Strike has a 5 or 6 table poker room and normally spreads nothing higher than 1-5 stud, and 3-6 Omaha hi lo, and hold-em. The Horseshoe is a 12 table room (which will be expanded to probably 16 tables during Jan.) that normally spreads 1 - 5 stud (stud is not that popular in the south), 4-8 to 20-40 hold em, and 4-8 Omaha hi lo, as well as a regular 5/10 blind pot limit Omaha.
As Muzzey said, the very high limit games, that take place during the WPO will be held in the tournament room at the Gold Strike, where there will be about 65 total tables, for tournaments, satelites, and ring games.
Hope this helps eliminate some of the confusion for you.
