2019 Red Chip Meetup (Las Vegas)

edited June 7 in Come Say Hello
Good morning everyone!

2019 marks our 5th annual Red Chip Poker meetup and if you plan on being around Vegas, we'd love for you to come hang out. Here is the short & skinny:
  • When: June 6, 2019 at noon
  • Where: Ricardo's Mexican Restaurant (Flamingo & S Decatur)
  • What: Have a meal on us, meet other Red Chippers, and we may even do a Q&A panel with hand reviews
Instead of doing live play during the meetup, we will host live games throughout the series. That way there are more options for playing and the meetup can be less about going to war with other Red Chippers ♥

To register, just go here: https://gum.co/rcp2019 (we ask for $5 down to help us get a better gauge of the number of attendees)

And if you have any questions, just leave a comment below.

We can't wait to see you this summer!

    Awwww... I really thought this was the best part of the meetup! I do think you have the right idea, however. And love that you'll be doing meet-up games later in the month (especially since I can't get out there until mid June).

    I think I almost made it to the Ricardo's study group one time. Calling @JoeOffsuit ?

    Yeah, we've just noticed that over the years many came to the meetup for the camaraderie, but left as soon as the live games started. We want people to feel as comfortable as possible - so rescheduling the live games will hopefully do just that =)

    Agree with @Paul_K : for some, the most interesting part is to play against RCP-ers :)

    @SplitSuit : you said you will host live games during the series. Do you have any idea when / where / which games ?

    We're still crafting that schedule. But the plan is to play at various rooms around Vegas and you know I'll be rooting to get some mixed variants in rotation =)

    Health permitting I'll put in a couple of sessions at the Flamingo PLO $1/$1.

    Hoping to attend for the first time and meet some of you wonderful Red Chippers in person!

    On a different note, always up for a $4/8 mixed game (if I'm in town). :-)

    Please bring at least one variant that I have never heard of. I absolutely love the challenge of trying to learn and craft a strategy on the fly =)

    I'm only going if Dr. Cardner will be there! Sorry, James n Doug! LOL Yeah, I def enjoy seeing all of you and chatting at these meet-ups, rather than playing. There's always games, but there's only one RCP WSOP meet-up!

    The good doctor has indicated to me a high probability of attending.

    How dope would it be to have a RedChipper go deep in the Big50? I also volunteer for rail duty should that happen!

    I’ll take it! I hope that we have a good contingent of red-chippers in the tournament, not a bad structure for the money. Solo-tripping out for the week, so regardless Im looking forward to meeting other red chippers and talking shop over a couple beers

    I see "have a meal on us" - That's incredibly generous and classy. What about drinks, though? Are they "on the house", as well?

    In Vegas people don't buy drinks, they wait until they're at the poker table and toss the cocktail server a buck.

    Sounds like I'll enjoy it there :D

    We're only a couple weeks away from the start of the WSOP, and I would really enjoy following "live updates" of any Red Chippers playing this year. What's been the best way to stay updated on progress? Twitter? The Forums? This thread?

    In the past I've created a thread for Red Chippers to provide updates on their tournament progress, but it never got used much. I can try again. I tend to get my vicarious thrills via Twitter.

    If you want to see me live tweet how I’m playing and more importantly what I’m drinking my Twitter is “CactusCards_“

    In all seriousness though, I’d love to see a RCP thread to keep up with the action from our guys

    One solution is simply if community members include @RedChipPoker in their tweets. Then e1 can respond with fire emojis and #LFG and wotnot.

    I am arriving Wednesday evening and will be staying/playing on the center strip area (Wynn/Venetian/Mirage/Harrahs/Flamingo/Caesars.)

    Please PM me if anyone is going to be playing around that area, or if anyone would like a ride to Ricardo's Thursday morning from that area (I will have intermediate sized rental car.)

    Can we bring a guest who might be a membership candidate? Obviously no T-shirt, and they'd be on their own for lunch. And maybe we have to blindfold them when we do the secret handshake.
