    My Trip Report

    Well if Beejay can start a trip report a month ahead surely a week today is not unreasonable for myself right? At this rate Beejay may have to start a thread for the October trip on Labour Day (do they have that holiday in the US?)

    Anyways, I normally get to Vegas for a solo trip once or twice a year between the trips with my numerous friends. However, about a year or so ago (how long has it actually been?) I met a man so nefarious, a man now so notorious, a man who's gambling and chasing depravity dwarfed my own. A chain smoking, booze swizzling, degenerate who's name I shall change to protect the innocent (assuming he was ever such a thing). Call him.....Veejay.....

    In lieu of this chance meeting, numerous friendships have now been made and countless Royals (there were two that day alone mine for $1000 his for $4000). In fact I have only hit two Royals in Vegas without him.

    Point is, since I met this god*amn chaser, I have played very little poker in Vegas which is my bread and butter. In fact, when in Vegas this year I have not lost at poker when playing sober. I said sober people. I have lost drunk. I have the Poker Tracker App on my Iphone to prove it with honest stats I swear!

    Because of this Veejay guy, I have been neglecting my Vegas lover of NL Hold Em. The plan is 80% cards, 15% VP and 5% craps unless I hit the Fire Bet and then all plans are off!

    Rooms to be played in include in no particular order....Bally's, Mirage, Venetian, MGM and just maybe a little old school 4/8 at Bellagio when I am too drunk to play properly.

    I will hit the Flamingo for some craps. i will hit Sully's bar for a few. I will visit Po a the Bally's Sports Book and I will chase those .25 and .50 progressives at the Bellagio which I have hit large quads every trip this year (I am on trip 7 as of next week) without exception.

    I will provide updates from the Diamond Lounge as my Iphone is still *ucked but I am getting it fixed when I get back.

    It would appear I may have to make the most of this trip as I am currently out for the upcoming monster in mid August that is the topic of another thread. But.....anything is possible. Could cost me a Coach purse or minimally a wallet to get some consideration. That means I need to hit a Fire Bet so send some positive Mojo if you want Gaggles on that one folks.

    That is all for now.

    Dude you have to show me some of the poker rooms someday. I've played in O'sheas and had that tournament offer last week making it to the final table but really haven't went into any poker rooms.

    Ah give him his solo trip so he can win more coin at poker and build that bankroll for a future trip and this way you can save those big jackpots I always win you for later in August.., maybe I will win you that $26k progressive at Bellagio-well if you buy dinner after.

    I have a block party anyway that makes Vegas look like amateur hour. Ok maybe not quite. Whoever wins a 5-figure jackpot can buy a dinner of maximum price $10. that is a 2-item sampler at Panda Express. NOT a 3-item, that will put you over with tax. I recommend you check their website so you have your selections narrowed down going in.

    :cry::cry::cry:

    oh how it pains me to say this

    :cry::cry::cry:

    but the wife's parents block party is next Saturday and she has expressly forbidden me from not attending said party.:nono::nono::nono:

    To illustrate my level of degeneracy, I straight up offered to take her for a night at Trump Tower Chicago and a $2,500 shopping spree on Michigan Avenue if she would approve the trip. Just so I could fly out Friday night and back Sunday morning.

    She slapped that idea down faster than security on Macker trying to climb on stage with Holly Madison at Peep Show. :poke:

    Anyway I gave it the ole college try, and therefore you are indebted to me, payable only by your appearance Aug 19-22 after you hit the mother lode of premium quads this weekend, be it at the poker table, video poker bar, or in the washroom as you manipulate your full erect 4 inches in a fruitless effort to hit the spinning target after one too many Vodka-Soda-Roses Lime's.:Þ

    (and no all this verbal brutality is not making me feel any better):cry::cry::cry:

    have a good trip you G:cheers:d-Damn Chaser!!!!

    Good luck Gaggles, in winning and keeping to the 85% poker schedule, I just can't seem to play it when in Vegas.

    Well here is an update that I cannot decide if it will be a good omen or bad?

    Went to local casino here on Friday and lost $300 at a 5/10 limit w/kill game. Never won one hand in two hours and broke a hell of a winning streak I had going.

    Most memorable hand..held KQ. Flop QQ6. Buddy had pocket sixes. I obviously did not improve. "Betting disks please!"

    As fate would have it...I hit quad aces without kicker :( on DDBP and quad fives to get back $200 of the $300 I lost after I left the poker room.

    So is this a good thing or bad? Are the VP poker gods telling me to play DDBP and get away from poker? Does this simply mean I play NL? Will Beejay surprise Gaggles and arrive in Vegas on Friday? Will I get so drunk on this solo trip I get a cigar comped from the pit boss and light it from the wrong end again?

    For all these answers and more stay tuned into Gaggles Solo TR.

    that horse is clearly dead, he hasn't said a word about it since that pinch out the other day. I nearly crossed the invisible line to go this weekend, but I need the bankroll for next trip anyway.

    At Flamingo this weekend. August is 98% no. But if anyone can do it Beejay can...I mean I can. I have been four times in two months as of this weekend guys.

    Well 2% is more then the chance of hitting a royal so that means your odds are good to make it in August no?

    Now that is a chaser's optimism. I like it.

    I guess I did hit two royals on one trip this year so anything can happen.

    It was twice in less than 24 hours. Can anyone figure the odds on that? I was more of a Social Studies guy!
