    My Trip Report

    Heading out after work today flying from the East Coast. Should arrive around 8 if everything is on time. Got the free First Class upgrade so lots of drinks should be consumed on the flight and I rented Neighbors and I also have Vegas Vacation and Hangover 3 as backups for the 5 hour flight.

    Limo from the Gate is all setup so more free drinks for the half hour ride downtown. Plan for the night is to play in the High Limit room at The Gate and see what crazy stuff we can get into tonight on Freemont Street.

    only 3 BJ tables are in the HL room. I use that term loosely as they start out at $25. The area is no bigger than your family room and looks over the casino floor.

    FYI - they replaced all the shoes on the floor with auto-shufflers. The middle table in the HL room is DD BJ. the one to the right is an auto-shuffler and i'm not sure about the one on the left. It was closed when I was there.

    Do you mean Constant Shuffle Machine(CSM) in which after a couple of hands they throw the cards back into the machine. Or do you mean an eight deck shoe is being automaticly being shuffled while another 8 deck is being played in the shoe. This cuts down on time as the hot girl dealers don't have to hand shuffle. Sure hope it is number 2 and not CSM.

    It is a continuous shuffle machine. I think unacceptable in a high limit room. I was there two weeks ago and this was the only table open. Spoke to the pit who seemed to agree but shrugged his shoulders. He said the DD pit would open at 8pm (it was 7:30pm)....didn't want to wait for it to open so took my BJ play elsewhere.

    They do have double deck free bet there... I had a great time on my last visit. I don't understand how these dealers have all this energy to be dancing all the time.... Well, I have theories. :wink2:

    This is all news to me about the CSM. I will ask my host tonight about it. Thanks for the heads up as this can really effect my play at the gate.
