I agree, I played there last week, awful turn out, NO COMPS, rude service, I'll never go back to the Bellagio!! Also, learn how to run a 1,000 buy in nightly tournament, as I played in 3 of them in the two weeks I was out there, they won't combine tables, my guess so it makes the tournament not last as long and small stacks get blinded out, HORRIFIC TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE!
