If you've followed this blog, or read some recent tweets, you are prolly familiar with my recent vitriol of Caesars Entertainment. In short, last year, I hit 30,000 + tier points and, as my reward, Harrah's AC went from offering free rooms to charging me $400+ a night on weekends. I was basically in the process of transitioning my play to MLIFE (in anticipation of MGM National Harbor in 2016), when, this week, I logged on to my Total Rewards account, and found that I am, once again, basically comped all over the country for the foreseeable future. This could be due to the 6,000 tier points I've racked up so far this year. Or, perhaps Gary Loveman simply recognized the error of his ways. Regardless of cause, like any good degenerate, I pounced.
I booked two weekends at Harrah's this month. I switched my April 2nd Vegas trip from Signature at MGM to Caesars Palace. And, most notably, I booked 9 days in the August Tower for May 29 through June 7, during the WSOP. I was inspiring by Lightning's ghost post on the Dirty TBC blog yesterday, which mentioned Event #5 of the WSOP -- a $565 buy-in, four-day event. I can get behind donating $500 for the sake of playing an actual WSOP event. I'm in. Now I have three months to learn something about actually playing poker. Wish me luck.
