I've called NC tours already, I shall post it here in case any kakis might have to same plan to be in batam before the ME day. Sadly you cannot buy ferry ticket from Batam to get to LW. So the only way is to travel back to TMFT and to Batam then LW. I guess I have to change my plans already.

Hi i wanna ask are there any "hidden cost" for the buy in for LWPS? the last time i went we had to pay like $20 more for "add-on" which is almost half our stack. so there's no reason not to and it's added cost. So i wanna ask if the organisers are pulling such stunts again?

taeyeon, why do u call it a stunt?

like the organisers mentioned, it's dealer's chips, which goes into a pot for the dealers to share additional tips for their work...

so most of us usually do so, since it's +ev and it kinda tips the dealers as well...

I believe this will still take place in the upcoming tournament.

i dunno.. i thought if they wanna pay the dealers they should just increase the registration fee, or at least indicate that there is such a thing happening. i dont understand what u mean by +ev since everybody will definitely pay the 20bucks more for the extra chips.

thanks for the question. i'll do my best to answer on behalf of the organisers.

1) it's not been confirmed but it looks very likely there will be dealers' chips in play - $20 for 3000 additional tourney chips - so it's best if you budget for this expense as well.

2) the $20 goes entirely towards dealer staffing costs, and is completely optional. it was introduced by the organisers during the course of Season 2, when the M/V Leisure World was no longer able to provide in-house dealers for the LWPS because of their own staffing difficulties. Recruiting 10-12 external dealers for the weekend, as you would imagine, adds several thousand dollars to operational costs.

3) Adding the $20 to the registration fee is not something the organisers can consider. It would firstly, remove the the right of the player to choose whether he wishes to buy the dealer's chips, and secondly make the registration fee exorbitant in proportion to the buy-in, and well beyond industry fee norms.

Hope this clarifies your concerns. =]

Hi Ikelos,

Just a question regarding the dealer's chip addon. So does that mean if we want the addon of 3000 chips the total ME buyin would be SGD220+30+20 = SGD270? Also what is the blinds structure and starting chips like?

Sorry this will be my first time joining the LWPS event.

See you guys on board!

Hello SeeKay

No trouble at all.

Latest update:

All bookings for 9am are full.

If kakis want to play the Main Event Freeroll on board, there are only 2 time slots left.

1. 8am
2. 10am

So act fast and book now to avoid disappointment.

Most kakis that stayed overnight will book a cabin. You can share cabin with other kakis in case you want to save cost. The reason is that they are playing the side event on Sunday as well. Thus, they need sufficient sleep so that they can focus on their "A" game on the next day.

And this time round, we are making a trophy for the side event Champion too.

Watch for the posting of the trophy picture by ikelos this evening.

Cheers!
