Hi all... having lurked here off and on for the last few years, I figured it was time to take the plunge & register. I gotta tell ya - some of the TRs & stories here have caused me to laugh-out-loud in my cubicle on more than one occasion. I primarily play blackjack - low limits - but I often indulge in a few carnival games as well. The avatar? I loved the Stardust & I loved their 'speed-chips'! It was my Las Vegas 'home' for many years & it truly saddened me when they closed....for, as it turned out, no reason! Echelon is still not built & the 'Dust & the 'Ho are still gone. Oh well. Downtown now gets all of my business. Next trip is this next Sunday through Wednesday. Gonna give VP & 4-card poker a try... as well as 3-card with the 6-card bonus. (Yeah - I know...that will force me to go to the Strip... but hey - I've heard there are a few remaining 'good' BJ tables at the Mirage, so who knows?) Anyway - I'm glad to finally be here 'officially'.
