    My Trip Report

    Hello Boys and Girls!

    I was in Vegas at the end of March and I have written a live tripreport on another website. Because of all these Vegas fans who are on VMB I still want to share the report, photo's and videos with you! I hope you guys like it!

    There we go :thumbsup: :


    ---------------------------------------------

    Hello boys & girls! :)

    I'm going to Las Vegas on monday (Amsterdam - Houston - Las Vegas) and will bring more then ten Dutchies with me! Some of them are only going for 1 week but I'm staying a little longer.

    The last time I was in Vegas was three years ago, which is way too long, but that was because of my study. As I'm graduated (doing SEO, marketing, websites, etc), NOW IT IS TIME TO GO!

    After my first trip I still was so excited about Vegas that I've made a informative website about Las Vegas written in dutch called http://www.vegasinfo.nl/ and I also have a YouTube-channel where I post some cool videos about Vegas. I will bring a GoPro Hero4 with a Feiyu Tech G4 3-Axis gimball so expect me to make some great footage.

    Anyways, me and some other Dutchies are staying in the Riviera (lol, Monaco Tower tho), a crappy place people say, but I'm proud to go to this iconic place before it will be demolished a couple months later. I payed €980 including flight and 15 nights hotel (inclusive resortfees and tax), so that's kind of a bargain imo. Although the EUR/DOL rate is really bad for Europeans I am glad I still have some dollars on me from the last trip.

    We are going to watch the show KA on tuesday (24 march 19.00) for free with myVegas. Friday 27 march we will rent a couple of cars in the early morning and will go for a off-strip casino tour where we will visit casino's like The Longhorn, Green Valley Ranch, Red Rock, Poker Palace, Casino Monte Lago, Eureka Casino and the Klondike Sunset Casino.

    Around 4pm I've arranged a special Dutchies pokertournament in Binions so we can have our own private turbo donkament pokertournament in the place where it all started. After that some people will get drunk at the Golden Gate (I guess lol) but I want to go see Armin van Buuren in the new Omnia nightclub for $50, quite cheap isn't it?

    On sunday 29 march a couple of guys including myself will go for a Sundance Helicopter Grand Canyon tour, which I'm really thrilled about.

    Anyways, we have a full schedule the first week, the second week I will be playing some more poker (I will bring 6k$ with me) and gambling, but I have to watch out... on my first trip I almost only played poker and didn't see anything eventhough I planned many things on that trip, I realised this when I was back in The Netherlands, so stupid!

    Furthermore I hope to meet TheTrooper97 and I will eat at In-N-Out Burger with a Las Vegas cabdriver because I promised him... lol.

    Pictures soon, videos if Wi-Fi is good and if I have the time :D

    VEGAS BABY! :cool:

    Left the mgm grand around 12am, looking for a taxi. Didn't see a taxi stand so hailed a taxi on the steet although we know it's not legal. Get in the cab and after 1 minute we got flagged down by the police. Driver got a fine, felt sorry for him, gave 25$ while the fare was 11$.

    Think i will be playing the 250$ 1c 150k gtd at venetian today, if not it might be the daily aria tournament.

    Played the 125$ 1pm tourney at the ARIA. Busted 8th place with AJ vs KT. Won $235 while 3k was first, that sucked :/ but it was a crapshoot in the end so I guess it is what it is, nice tournament tho.

    Playing the 7pm tournament now. :)

    Played the ARIA 7pm a couple of days ago, going on ubertilt when I 4bet ship my 99 vs a agromonk with stack when he had queens. Buy in for 300$ at a roulette table, put a couple $5 chips on 17 and 17/20 and the 17 hit on my first spin.... LOL. I tip the dealer $10 and I cashout for $1225.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that went to play with another Dutchie in the 2-6 spread limit game at Excalibur, just for fun. Gave the whole table free McDonalds but most people didn't want anything.

    [​IMG]

    Also went to the restaurant Top of the World, okay food but very overpriced imo, although the view was awesome and the dessert was delicious!!

    [​IMG]

    Gave $200, is that a OK tip?


    Again I played the daily 1pm ARIA tournament, had a big stack until I decided to 3bet bluff Q2hh from the small blind when the button raised for like the 5th time in the same spot (we were playing 6 handed). He flats, Flop AJ5xxx I cbet he calls and I just ch/f the turn. After that hand got 13 bb's left and I shove when someone raised, he had AK I had AQ and busted 11th place, grrrrrrrr **** that! :(

    Saw the trooper playing cash at ARIA at the table next to me.

    Then we went to the Zumanity, pretty nice and funny show, titties not that good tho. Got a Smokeshack after that which was very nice (thanks for letting me know TheTrooper97)

    [​IMG]

    Went on a second casinotour yesterday with a couple of other Dutchies who flew in a week later.The Joker's Wild Casino had 10c roulette... LOL wtf :) I buy in for $20, ofcourse I am building stacks on the 17 and 17/20 and on my second spin I hit it... +- $80 up, good start :)

    I saw the Zumanity show in NYNY, funny show and much interaction with the audience with I personally like. Two days later we went to Zarkana at the ARIA, nice show too but imo not that spectacular. I've seen some better tricks in a circus then in Zarkana, although these people do things I have never done in my life and never could :)

    Played the Daily ARIA 1pm again. My kings hold versus A5 who 4bet tiltjammed allin because 10 minutes before I let him fold his AK pre vs my AJ (I 3bet shipped with 20bbs, I didn't show but how can u fold AK there... lol)

    Was pretty much crushing the table with my chiplead on the bubble, but when some shorties doubled up and we reached the final table everyone had like around 10-15 bigs, so we chopped the prizemoney with 8 people.

    I would have liked to play it out because the table wasn't that strong but for now I rather take the $1428 then being unlucky in a certain situation and you cash for something like $300. I played a couple of ARIA dailies this trip, I'm not sure how many but I became 8th place the first week for $235 (**** that ****!), 11th place and 1-8th place today. Also went deep in The Venetian Extravaganza Bounty side event, somewhere around 22th out of the money. Running pretty good in the tournaments, didn't cash much but the $1428 is a nice end of my trip. Cashgames were horrible, played my biggest cashgame pot of the trip yesterday at the Golden Nugget for $600 and I get it in with kings versus kings and the guy made a flush..... LOL :)

    Flying to Amsterdam on tuesday morning. I've taken my GoPro everywhere I went so I need to make some time to edit all this footage i have so I can put it on YouTube and I can share it with you guy in this topic :)
