Is nothing wrong with the 4Q and free is an awesome price, I feel those that don't stay at the host hotel just don't get the same convention experience.
Everything happens at the South Point.
The chipboard get together
The poker tourney
The BJ tourney
The volunteer reception
The trade sessions
The people and the food.
It's an awesome experience sitting down at nearly every table and finding fellow chippers.
I do knowprice becomes a factor in many decisions not to stay at the South Point, but for me there is no experience like it during the convention. I couldn't think about staying anywhere else.
Hope to see you there.
