The O should be held the same weekend as the AVN Adult Porn Convention. 90% of all the competitors are closet and open sex workers anyway. Great way to boost income. Both events are freakshows of debauchery.

Bingo.

3 night stay at Planet Hollywood, 15 - 18 Dec,

Thur December 15      $119.00
Fri,   December 16      $169.00
Sat,  December 17      $179.00

Total $467.00

The above so-called TOTAL is  the price as advertised .... BUT does not include the tax, fees, nor the notorious and so called RESORT FEE which will run the real total fee up to $685.78.

And some hotels charge an extra fee if you want daily maid service.

Las Vegas hotel room rates are based on supply and demand and change constantly so it pays to do some research when booking a LV hotel room.

Does Planet Hollywood have a sauna and if so what hours is it available for use?

BHANK, I've have never seen the Planet Hollywood Fitness Center but there is one available according to YouTube with no mention of a sauna, so I gave the hotel a call only to be routed through recorded responses and after about 5 minutes I gave up.

At present my best guess is that there is no sauna nor steam room available at Planet Hollywood.

And YouTube has a 20 second video of the "PLANET HOLLYWOOD FITNESS CENTER" but no mention of a sauna.

Specific gambling advice.

 ;D ;D ;D

My advice: don't! Only the house wins.

Poker is ok, if you are good at it.  8)

Too much info here but a couple of you Oly attendees may be interested .....

MATT's right about the casino's House Advantage ..... but if you do decide to risk a few bucks in a LV casino .... Here's some advice from a low-limit expert.

1. Avoid gambling in any LV Strip casino. Following are the reasons why:
    a. The vast majority of the Strip casinos charge you to park your car.
    b. Minimum bets on the Strip table games start at $15 - $25. Off  Strip casinos
       start at $5.
    c. Get a Blackjack and a Strip  casino will pay you 6 t0 5  .... but it should pay
      you 3 to 2 which means that the casino is keeping some of your winnings.
    d. Beware of the CONTINUOUS SHUFFELING shoe at the BJ tables.
    e. Avoid roulette tables that have 39 slots. But best to avoid roulette.
    f.  If you play BJ, adhere to Basic Strategy .... or don't play at all.
    g.  It's best to avoid casino gambling if any of the above confuses you.

But if you do decide to gamble .... you can find a $1 BJ table at OYO Casino which used to be HOOTER's  but it pays even money and deals from a continuous shoe. A good table for Blackjack newbee's.

My best advice for any GetBig gambling fool is to try your luck at Ellis Island which is off the Strip and within walking distance of Planet Hollywood.

Try your luck at one of the Ellis Island Buffelo or Kitty Gilitter slot machines which usually pay me off pretty damn well.

Ellis Island has one $5 BJ table and one $5 craps table most days but seldom on weekends or when some big event is happening in this town. 

The Olympia is  a BIG Event.

And I've never had a bad meal at Ellis Island. Good food at cheap prices.

BBQ ribs .... The best in town from 5 to 10 PM.
Fish and Chips .... The best in town 24 hours.

Sit at the bar, order a meal, place $20 in the bar-top slot  machine  (Buffelo or video poker) and drink for free.

Just remember to tip the mice looking female bartenders.

Heading to Ellis right now with two TWENTIES as I never enter a casino with more than I would enjoy loseing.

The real question is why is the Olympia Amateur Masters Division 35 and up? Seems kind of young especially when they only have one cutoff should be more like 45.

Glad it's back in Vegas but prefer it in October.

Agree 100%  If you didn't say it first, I would have.  Give them time to rest between the O and the ASC.   These new guys are hungry, and want to compete like the guys in the 90's and early 2000   I really like the attitudes of the new guys.

Walker wanted to do the ASC, but his  coach was focused on building up Wilkin  I'm not sure if it was a  good move or not.  Nick's gut does not seem to be in check like it was under Matt though..

If I enter the master amateur classic physique division I would need to use it to make weight dry out they are literally doing the master amateur show on my 45th birthday could be fun but they are using 35 as the cutoff not 40 or 45 which would be better for me

Poker is the worst unless you are a world's elite. Baccarat is the way to go but off the strip.

Serious?  I'm not a fan, but I do get those 'Max Rep' vibes from him ('90s reference for the kids on here)



Max Rep was a bodybuilding comic strip created, written and illustrated by Lyman Dally that appeared in both Flex magazine and Muscular Development magazine.

It featured the adventures of "Max Rep" a futuristic and genetically engineered bodybuilder, his girlfriend "Quadra Blu" an Amazonian female bodybuilder with blue hair and "Razer-Cutt" his self obsessed rival.



The strip was in Muscular Development for many years until they changed to a natural bodybuilding format at which point they dropped Max Rep as a feature.

no one is interested in walking 5 miles out of their way to eat a 50 cent hot dog

or coupons to stay at a rathole hotel if you play the penny slots

Anybody have an idea how much tickets are to the show? Do you purchase one ticket for all events or seperate tickets for mr. Olympia, ms. Olympia, classic olympia?

Also is it like the Arnold shows!? Is there a bunch of booths, supplements companies, power lifters etc etc etc?
