Ok. This trip has been a roller-coaster, but at least I didn't get killed on the first day. BJ usually tears me up during day 1, but the good luck wishes from this board helped me out. I usually always start off with BJ, but I wasn't going to do that this time. I started out with a slot machine and lost a bit. Then we went to the BJ table and I did ok. We were waiting for our room to open up, so we left when they called us. I think we made about 3 more trips to the BJ table during this 1st day. Poker - I was card dead all night. 2/5 NL. Tips, blind and little pairs ate me up. I was at a money making table, but couldn't make anything. People were betting $200+ after the river with Ace high. I just couldn't catch anything. Oh, I got got long-hauled to the Mirage. The fare was $24 and I gave him $25 and told him, "I usually tip very well, but thanks for the long-haul." He told me, " I don't need your fucking tip!" Whatever. I have his cab ID and all that, but I don't know if I should call him in. Cravings sucked ass this trip. Low rolling at the Fitz sucked balls. Binions was good to me today. I am having a La Bayou everclear drink right now and it's good. Suprise, my non slot ass has played a lot of slots and they have been good to me. We're heading out to the pool here at the Mirage. I haven't been got fucked up yet, and I think that is the reason I am only down about a grand. More later. Thanks.
