    My Trip Report

    so during my trip in february i was all set to keep you all up to date with the massive amount of cash i had planned to win but that quickly went to the shitter. i'll try a little harder this time but who knows.

    this trip i kind of got dragged into. was in vegas in february and have a trip planned for november, figured this might cause a little friction on the home front but stacy was cool and said if you got the cash go. my brother and a couple friends had been bombarding me with texts, wanting me to man up and join them. several different things aligned in the planning so it seems i was destined to join them.

    my brother and i both have entries into the cet 150k video poker tournament so that was a plus. found round trip airfare with frontier (fingers crossed again) for 240, so that was good. looked at my work schedule (am a firefighter) and turns out i had all four days off plus a couple others so i didn't even have to use any vacation.

    if the stars aren't aligned for this trip i'm not sure they ever will be.

    participants include myself, my brother, and two friends. mike was with us in february and mickey lives in salt lake city and he will be driving down. we also hope to meet up with another friend from our hometown who has been in vegas for a while now playing in some wsop events. he finished 4th in event 39 and pocketed 226k, a very good poker player.

    anyways, i take off wednesday night at 9:45 pm est which will be pretty late for me. i plan on watching a movie, napping and prepping for a few hours of winning when i arrive.

    todd

    getting packed, not sure how crazy i am about this late night flight. i've always flown out in the morning, sitting around all day waiting to get on a plane sucks.

    my son and his wife gonna drive me up to airport, wife is working today, gonna meet her for dinner then hit the friendly skies.

    decided i'm going to avoid, for the most part, all the carnival games i love but lose at. going to stick to more bj, vp, pai gow, and live poker.

    I have no idea why I'm up already but that's just what happens in Vegas. Checking in last night all Harrahs had left was a suite with a king bed and a pull out couch, we will be moving to a different room today. I went to the "invited guests" line so I got to bypass some of the line craziness but like I said before, people were mad and venting, heard multiple people blasting the check in staff. I wouldn't have been happy about the wait either.

    Got checked in, put bag in room and hit the VP machines. I should have stayed on the same machine. Hit this no more than 20 hands in

    Then hit this a few hands later

    Floated around a bit after, like a moron played a couple carnival games even though I said I wouldn't.

    Hope to have some impressive chip porn for you today

    This made me :haha: I think we've all had our "like a moron" moments in Vegas. It must be something in that smell they pump into the casinos. :wink2:

    When I get to Vegas, I also end up playing games that I swear I won't play. Vegas does these things to people.:bang:

    So I got up wayyyy earlier than expected and headed downstairs. Played a little vp with no decent wins and had a little Mickey Ds for breakfast. Needed to kill some time so walked over to the Mirage. Put a 20 in a vp machine and then noticed the shit 6/5 pay table. Was able to hit this

    Ended up at flamingo, played some pai gow and free bet poker and won a grand total of $2. Better than being down. Heading over to Hash House A Gogo for some dinner

    If you are around CET, no need checking.

    Had dinner at Hash House A Gogo, had a burger with bacon and cheddar, was freakin delicious. Asked waitress for a side of BBQ sauce, she said it costs $1.25! Realize in the whole scheme of things it's nothing, just thought it comical. Headed back over to the mirage to visit with a friend who is a pit supervisor then played some poker. Hit a few decent hands, played for a couple hours and ended up donking off my winnings to walk away about even. We headed back over to Harrahs and played some more pai gow. Got down to my last bet a couple times then hit a hot streak and was happy to walk away up $40. Hit the cage and stopped at another VP machine and caught another 4oak

    Keep hitting those quads. Glad you got through the check in mayhem. No excuse for that crap.
