Hey Folks, Just wanted to introduce myself. My wife and I visited Vegas for the first time in November, and stayed at Bally's. My wife had a conference and I tagged along, because, hey, it's Vegas. Somehow, the Wynn/Encore folks seemed to think we were worthy of some great room deals because they sent us an invitation to come back to town with suite discounts that were hard to ignore. Anyway, we will be heading back on the 26th of Dec. it must be a slow time, 'cause they are basically giving us the suite and la reve tickets for a pittance. We are total rookies at the tables. We did well at craps (without understanding anything about the game), which was all we played while there. Now that I know more about it, I will prolly do poorly! One burning question...I'm planning to play some blackjack this time. Is it annoying to have rookies checking a strategy card all the time. Thanks!
