    My Trip Report

    I'm driving to Vegas today from San Diego. I'm there with a buddy for work, but we'll definitely be having some fun as well.

    In the past I've almost always stayed at CET properties, this time we're doing three different places. Starting at The D tonight. On Tuesday switching to PH, my normal spot. Then headed to Cosmo for the weekend.

    Then gambling plan this trip is not to spend hours at any single table. I'd like to go up a bit, then move to a different table, different game, or take a break. I'll be playing mostly BJ, Craps, and Baccarat.

    I'll likely hit a show or two, will do some dinners, and maybe even a night club. Hopefully I'll have plenty of chip porn, gun porn, and hopefully other good photos for the TR.

    nice

    Nice Gamesman

    Always wanted to go to Shot show, but never took the time.

    Best of luck & keep your powder dry!

    Any opinion of the DP-12?, bet they'll be at the show.

    OK. It's morning. Time to wake up, get some motrin, see what I remember from last night (so on can post it), and go fire some weapons.

    I played a combo of craps, BJ, and baccarat last night. Started with some craps. First shooter was my buddy. He hit one number, and a hardway, but it was a pretty quick toss. I was down about $300. Then it was me, a quick P7O, and I bought in for $300 more to make my bet. I was down about $800, and bought in for $300 more to make the next bet, I'm at $1,300 buy-in now; my BR for the night was $2,500. This is important later.

    Before the third shooter (after me) I considered leaving. The stick man next time me tells me that the next shooter was hot last night, so I stick around. Sure enough, he was hot again.

    Dude didn't hit many numbers, but the hardways kept me in it. I realize it's a sucker bet, but I play it $25/5, two way, my control. I made it $50/5 a couple times when the point was an even number.

    I was trying to keep track a bit of my tips. If I bet for the house, do I count the win as a tip, or just the bet? If so, I was at $185 in tips after craps, and left up $725. I cashed out for $2,025.

    Thanks bro.
    I'm a big fan of both. I hope I do better on photos today than I did last night.
    Thanks bro. I brought some pocky up with me. I should eat it for luck today.

    I have to add that I love the 10x odds here. My buddy left the table $85 down and I left $700+ up. The different is from the hardway bets and going max on odds, which he didn't do.

    I would say keep track of what you put out there. No sense in trying to track it twice (calculating wins and losses on the money).

    Plus you want to know how much out of your pocket, not how much into theirs. They'll be happy just to see some action, as you know.

    Good start to your trip!

    Thanks. I have to go through texts from last night to try to track the next few back and forth sessions of BJ and craps.
