    My Trip Report

    It's been 3 months since I've been back to Vegas.. This time, no GF. :ssst:

    Going to be in Vegas with 4 of my good friends. Reason? Birthday Celebrations, my new job,..... just because. :)

    I'm going to keep this as live as possible.

    I got the group a room at Aria (Sky Suites) & Planet Hollywood. I figure, since I'm probably going to be giving PH play, I'll take a room there also just incase I'm too lazy to walk/cab across the street.

    Plans of action:

    Thursday:
    - Arriving 5pm, Aria has a limo out at the airport for me. 2 other people arriving at night and 2 before me (driving in from SF Bay Area).
    - First $300 hand on DD Blackjack before I check-in to Aria.
    - Put my bag in the room and go down and check the casino floor.
    - Eat dinner (TBD)
    - Meet up with some of girls that are already there since yesterday.
    - Drink, drink, Drink!
    - Gamble @ Aria

    Friday:
    - Eat Lunch @ Wicked Spoon @ Cosmo
    - Gamble @ PH
    - Bday Celebration Dinner @ Rio Seafood Buffet
    - Gamble @ Wynn/Encore
    - Nightclub
    - Gamble @ Aria

    Saturday:
    - Eat lunch @ Burgr (PH)
    - Gamble @ PH
    - Bday Celebration Dinner (TBD)
    - Gamble @ Cosmo
    - Marquee Nightclub for Dash Berlin
    - Gamble @ Aria

    Sunday:
    Hopefully wake up early enough to gamble
    Fight home at 2pm.

    (Did this schedule so I can kind of follow it for where I need to gamble, LOL)

    Wow good start Tom!

    It's "Free Bet Blackjack" invented by Geoff Hall, who also invented "Blackjack Switch". He also posts here as "Switch". In free bet blackjack, you get doubles covered by the house for hard 9-11 and free splits for all pairs except tens. You can still double soft totals with your own money as well. But the house charges you for these free doubles/splits by pushing on a dealer 22. The game at Aria has a house edge a little over 1%.

    The thread about it is here:

    Oh boy...I love chasers. You either end up with an epic mini-Nate style surge or you disappear mid-trip report b/c you don't even want to talk about what you did. Here's hoping for the former. :beer:
