Excursion Registration fee:

To attend our events and play in our tournaments, everyone must register online. The $25 registration fee will be collected when you pick up your badge at the Live Poker room.

The FIRM DEADLINE for registration is the end of the day Sunday, June 4, 2023.

When you register, please choose your badge names carefully. Your "nickname" will appear in larger print, and your "real name" below, in smaller print.


The Live! Poker Room has set aside a limited block of rooms for us at the Live Hotel connected to the casino. Make reservations using the link found in your ARGEM registration email when you register.

The rates (plus applicable taxes and resort fees) at the Live Hotel are:
$229 a night Thu-Sun

A special code for booking these rates will be in the email you receive when you register for ARGEM.

Note that rooms are NOT unlimited. So, if you are a regular poker player at the Live! and are already eligible for their poker rate, please make your reservation as you normally would, WITHOUT mentioning ARGEM. This will help save our designated rooms for others.

Additional lodging options can be found on the Other Lodging link to the left.
