    That's a very general question.

    What specifically would you like to know?

    Not sure how to play the game. Watched a couple times, but not very long. I'll read up on some rules.

    Each shooter starts out with an opening roll of the dice. 11 or 7 on the opening roll is a winner or a pass. You can bet on if the shooter is going to pass or not pass (crap out) on the opening roll. If the opening roll is another number say 8 then the shooter has to continue to shoot until she or he roll an 8. A 11 or 7 after the opening roll is a crap out. You can bet on all of the combinations of numbers after the opening roll. Some combinations like hard 12 and snake eyes are long shots that pay out significantly more when bet on and rolled. Those long shot bets are only good for one roll of the dice they don't stay on the board till the shooter craps out or rolls his number.

    I don't know about that specific tournament, but in general, your best bet is always using StubHub and waiting until the day of the game.

    Always know the "StubHub cutoff time" for that particular game -- that is, the time they stop selling tickets.

    Check it often for "outlier" tickets that are far cheaper than the rest (when factoring in seat location).

    The closer you get to game time, the better chance you will have to snag a "panic bargain" ticket from a seller who doesn't want their seats going unsold.

    mrs riko and I are going to Vegas in July for her birthday. We're staying during the week, and it's July, so hotel rates are really good. A lot of the nicer places are $150 or less per night.

    Anyone have thoughts on THEhotel at Mandalay Bay vs Bellagio vs Cosmopolitan? We want a nice pool but don't want the club scene stuff. The suites at THEhotel look cool -- they're huge, with two bathrooms and a separate living room. Any downsides to staying there?

    I absolutely love the Cosmo. Stayed in a wraparound terrace suite that overlooked the Bellagio fountains. The entire hotel is awesome with great food and great music playing throughout the hotel. This is my new go to hotel

    The cosmo suites overlooking the Bellagio waters are really beautiful. Nice terrace to smoke on (if that's your poison). Very great.

    I am going to Vegas in a month, I wish I could afford a room at cosmo. The place is gorgeous!

    I don't spend a lot of time in my room, so I usually look for something more reasonably priced since I basically just store my bags there. I have been combing over all the travel websites though, and I made the mistake of reading reviews. Now I am scared... I have narrowed it down to The Riviera, Stratosphere, Ballys and LVH... Which would be less scary?

    Cosmo has great rooms and great views..

    I am pretty sure you can find crack cocaine at any of the hotels, if you look hard enough. I just want to make sure I don't get bed bugs or lice.

    I've stayed at TheHotel a couple times and I really like the fact that it is a suite and has two bathrooms. Its a nice place but its a little old (I think like 10 years or so) so its not as snazzy as the newer Cosmo. I'm staying at the Bellagio for the first time at the end of the month so I can't really compare it yet. However, from what I remember about TheHotel is that it shares everything with Mandalay Bay so you get the nice sportsbook and multiple pool options. I think there are a couple pools at Mandalay that you can pay a little extra to get a more relaxing atmosphere. From what I'm reading, the Bellagio pools are nice too and don't have the club dance scene to deal with either.

    I am watching prices, I am hoping that people just won't want to go gamble in the desert in the dead of summer. The prices will go down and I will get into a 4-5 star room for less than $100.

    Have you used Hotwire before? You can look up which hotels are offered on Biddingfortravel.com and then have a pretty good idea which hotels you would be getting. I've gotten $100/night rooms at both TheHotel and Aria with Hotwire.

    I have been watching Hotwire, but wasn't aware I could check the other site to see which rooms they were referring to. Thanks for the tip!

    Yeah, just be aware of the regions like Strip south, etc and that the description of the hotel includes things like casino, pool, etc. This is the link for the likely hotels (even though the list is specific to Priceline, I think its the same as Hotwire):

    Good luck.

    Of this options I would personally go with Ballys. It's nice enough but it's right there near the heart of the strip. LVH is good but it's off strip (unless that is a Marriott I am thinking of). Stratosphere is a dump just way the fuck out of the way of everything else and as far as the Riviera goes I've never been so I can't tell you either way.

    LVH has the monorail just outside, so I was considering it. I would prefer to be on the strip though. Thanks for the recommendation. I have never been in Bally's, if the other rooms don't go down in price I will book there.

    The Platinum is generally priced well. Full kitchen, washer/dryer. Right behind Bally's, off the strip by a block. Never had an issue there in the 4-5 times we've stayed.

    The Platinum is a great spot which I would have recommended if it was one of the options she listed. It is off the strip but right behind Bally's so it's not to bad of a walk to the strip. Every room is a suite so that is nice it just depends on what size suite you are going to get but it is very well priced. It is my understanding that when it was originally built it was planned on being an apartment building but then it was changed to a hotel last minute so it doesn't have that hotel feel to it. Negatives are no casino and the pool isn't much to be desired but other then that it is a great spot.

    The Palms is off the Strip but we stayed in a newly renovated room last year for peanuts and were impressed with the hotel as a whole.

    Weekday rates are reasonable.

    Stay at Bally's imo. Best location out of those and the rooms are pretty big/decent.

    In the last couple years I have stayed at MGM, Excalibur, and Flamingo, and all have perfectly good, clean rooms with absolutely no issues whatsoever.

    Archie, how do you feel about Downtown? I stayed at the brand new Downtown Grand earlier this year and got a nice 4-star room for like $40.

    We stayed in a Go room at the Flamingo a couple years ago and it was nice. We stayed at the Golden Nugget downtown last year and it was fine. Enjoyed the shark tank and slide in the pool there. Because rates are so cheap on weeknights in July, we want to go a little more upscale this time. Thanks for all the tips...

    Of the places I've stayed the Flamingo was the best located, and I liked Paris and Planet Hollywood a lot too. The Luxor was OK. Wynn and Encore are nice to stay in but you literally walk a mile from the casino just to get to the street.
