    My Trip Report

    Well, if y'all read my last trip report my last trip I didn't get to do a lot of looking around last time since my friend was "sick". So, this time I'm going to try to hit up most of the casinos along Freemont. I've got $120 in free/match play coming to me. I know not as much as a lot of people, but it's a start. 4Q gave me $40 in free play, and $20 in free chips from my last visit, and I didn't play VP that much there. This time I figure I'll mainly play VP there, and craps/BJ at the other places. And, since I'm flying Allegiant, GG is giving me $50 in match play.

    Going to start with the crack cakes over at Golden Gate since I've heard so much about them, and see how the tables are going. And, I'm planning on dinner over at Andiamo on Wednesday. The first for me is I'm going to be using Bitcoins to pay for both. Hey, less cash out of my pocket means more for the tables. Other than that, it's pretty open right now.

    Planning on drinking way too much, and gambling way too much. So, a normal Vegas trip. Hoping to post lots of VP/Chip porn. Hopefully I'll get my first royal this trip. And, hopefully I won't be too drunk to figure out how to post pics in TapTalk. :thumbsup:

    Finally off work. 11 hours, and I should be in the air. Time to do the last second packing, and get a few hours sleep.

    Got selected for the pre-screen. Guess having a cane helps. Now just waiting on the plane. Hummmm...there's a bar right across the gate.

    I should know in a couple of hours.

    And they might have to move me since I have a cane. Not going to be happy if I am since I paid for the seat.

    Got to 4 Queens and they had me in a non-smoking room. And they were out of standard ones. So they put me in a king suite. Time to eat and start making money.

    They didn't let me bet a promo chip on "Free Bet" when I was there. Not sure why.

    Not as much luck. Lost 1st hand and won 2nd. Was up about $150 at craps at 1 point but lost some back. So up $110. From Golden Gate. Came back to 4 Queens and played a bit. Every one was point-7 so I cashed out only about $20 down. It's bed time for me. Been up almost 24 hours now.

    Up $90 for the day.

    It's a nice feeling to not have to hit the safe when leaving the room. Time for breakfast.

    Well the line for breakfast was really long when I got there. So how to kill some time. ..I know let's play some craps. So much for being ahead $90. This is an expensive breakfast. $90 down before breakfast.

    Well if it makes you feel better, I lost about $300 waiting for a comp meal I ordered at my local casino. Up until then I had been doing pretty well, playing UTH and staying even or a bit up for 2-3 hours. Ordered some food to go and proceeded to crash and burn... That was an expensive dinner.

    Good luck! Turn it around later!

    I'm hoping to. Planning on hitting The D in a few then going to try Freemonts seafood buffet for dinner. I've got a couple of match plays and I did really well last time at The D last time. Also need to use the $40 FP here at 4Queens
