    My Trip Report

    So I convinced (read: begged :evillaugh) the wife to go to Reno this weekend.
    We'll be heading out around 5pm.
    This is just a quick trip, coming back tommorow night (up friday night, come back saturday night)
    Since we're diamond with CET, we got a room on-the-fly with Harrahs Reno (West Tower, which I guess is better?)
    The plan is to play a little video poker tonight, with some UTH and PaiGow sprinkled in...
    I'll keep it real!
    :beer:

    I went to Reno earlier this year. Harrah's is a "dump", not at all what it was when it was "the only game in town" over 20 years ago.

    The advent of Indian casinos really killed it, and Reno in general.

    I did take my son to see the Transformer movie and next door to Cal-Neva for the $5.99 Prime Rib special.

    I drove down to Virginia City to the Delta Saloon and got a Silver Strike.

    Anyway, good luck!!!!

    You're in Modesto, do you drive to the Fresno casinos?

    Yeah...Reno is pretty dumpy..but to me, it's like Downtown Vegas..FUN for the low-roller!
    Nope, don't go to Indian casino's (only once in a GREAT while, if I'm in the area for something else)

    That happened on a UTH table at Rincon, a couple weeks ago. I was about 15 minutes too late.

    Funny...i was told, that was the exact sequence of cards (9-K)...lol...no one had the A.

    The one time I got a royal, I had A-rag, and the board ended up being 10-J-Q-K-rag. I got the royal and the guy in seat 6 had the 9 of spades for the straight flush. Table went crazy!

    I hit a royal on Pai Gow, not too long after my UTH royal. All I remember was, I was super excited when I got it, but when I got paid, I was like, "that's it?"...lol. Then again, it could be because I was playing the minimum for Envy ($5).
