    Trips to Las Vegas:

    My Trip Report

    This was my first time staying at the Encore. I landed at 8 pm, which began with shots of hennessy and many beers before my friends landed (about 1 hour after). I made my way to the HL slots. Played $25-100 per spin. No big hits unfortunately. I won about $500 overall.

    I started to get bored so I went to play baccarat. I bought in for 3k, playing $300 per hand at the Wynn. Got killed so I got some more cash then went to the HL room at the Encore. Got killed again. I don't think I won 1 hand. My friends land and we have a few drinks. I leave them to go chase my money back. Went back to the Wynn and won some money back. Down about 1k.

    We make our way to the Cosmo, where I played some slots. I decided to play some baccarat. Bought in for 3.5k. This was one of the few times I played baccarat in a HL room where people were constantly betting against each other. This was a very non-community baccarat session, which I did not like. After about 2 hours, I'm down a little at the Cosmo. Drink service was really slow even in the HL room. My rating is below.

    Cosmo rating
    Average bet $393 for 2 hours (not sure about theo)

    My friends went to Aria so I meet them over there. We played slots and drink a ton. Now its about 6 am, where we make our way to the Palazzo to eat at Grand Luxe. The place was really good.

    I slept for 2 hours then I'm ready for some more baccarat. We order room service then I went to the Wynn to play. Played on the normal floor where I broke even for the trip, not bad I guess. We decide to play HL slots, where we drink quite a bit, maybe too much.

    Now we are smashed so we decide to play baccarat at the Encore. Same thing as the previous day, I think I won 1-2 hands. I could not get rolling at this place. Maybe it's cursed so I decide to play baccarat only at the Wynn. We go eat at SW, great food. We watch the fight, I got the line at -290, which made me very disappointed. This made me lower my bet significantly. It looks like the future may hold the Mayweather vs Pac fight if Bob Arum doesn't mess it up.

    Now it's time to play some more baccarat. My friends and I play on the normal floor, where I loose a few grand. A few guys sit down and constantly bet against us so I got pissed off and make my way to the HL room. It started slow, where I was playing this guy that was down 120k. We get killed so I got some more money and play at this other table where 4 others were playing. Finally, I catch a streak. This guy called everything, squeezing 9's against 8's. This was the first time I played without looking at the board. I just kept betting with the guy. I then play by myself after the session with this crazy guy calling everything. I won all my money back and up a little over $1000 for the trip. Not bad since it was rough to begin.

    Wynn rating
    Average bet $492 for 7 hours (I thought this was a little low, but oh well)
    Theo ~3k

    The girls at the Encore were absolutely stunning on Saturday night. They were all wearing skimpy skirts, waiting in line at the clubs. We were going to check out XS, but decided not to.

    I check out where my host covered all my food charges. Up a little over 1k for the trip. Not a big win, I was down almost 10k at one point so I'll take it. Walking from the Encore to the Wynn casino got old really quick. Also, it was very tiresome. I don't think I'll gamble at the Encore again. The vibe is so much different from the Wynn. The Wynn is much more lively. The room at the Encore was better than the Wynn. Overall, fun trip and hope to go back in 2 weeks for the fight. We'll see......

    I find the same thing, I love the rooms at Encore but the Casino at Wynn so I do a lot of trudging down that long hall when I'm staying there. Congrats on coming home a winner after a rough start.
