    My Trip Report

    Took a quick, solo trip to our favorite city May 7-9 with one full day of gambling downtown. In between going from the Fremont (where I was enjoying a comped stay)to the Plaza, I stopped in the Golden Gate just in case Hurricane Mikey might be there dealing and I could see if he really was better looking than Hoss Cartwright as he one time claimed. There he was, easily recognizable from his website and the TR photos, at about a half-full table that was slightly warm and having fun, at least on his end. I bought in for a hundred and stationed myself directly across from him. The players were betting low stakes, my $5 w/double odds and $22 - $34 inside (high on the 6/8) and a buck each on the hard 4 & 10 was the highest on our end and Mikey had no real trouble on the payoffs. I put him on the line for a buck w/ shoes or a buck or 2 on the hard ways when that was possible but never won him a dime in the 30 minutes I was there. I was up a hundred but then a beam of sunlight came in and gave Mikey a false halo, which we all got a kick out of (except the sourpuss stickman, "Dave or John"??? maybe was his name?- anyway, he was no fun and seemed he didn't appreciate our kidding around with Mikey) and the table cooled off. After losing half back I turned around and put my chips on the cashier counter and got out of there when Mikey went on break. Never did introduce myself as I didn't want the pitboss to think Mikey was dealing to friends but I made a comment about the flea circus and Mikey muttered under his breath, "You got that right" and when he jokingly told a player who requested his payoff that making the payoff was his passion, I said, "I thought it was sailing." He looked up at me but didn't reply. Anyway, I was just hinting around that there was a T2V member at the table, dunno if he caught it. Oh, and by the way, he doesn't look anything like Hoss C., I will have to ask my wife when I return to LV with her in June if he puts Hoss in the shade in the looks department. stephen2753 :cool:

    Hey Steve--

    I remember the whole false halo thingy the other day, but I never heard any comment about sailing--sorry about that...

    But you're right--definitely a flea circus in there!

    No problem dealing to fellow T2Vers there at the Gate, Dougie walked up and I introduced him to the other dealers and the boxman the other day. They're ok with it.
