    My Trip Report

    So after the last trip where the Cosmopolitan put me in City Room and NO Casino host, this trip I think I have a casino host. I’ll see when I get there. I’m supposed to have a Wraparound Suite with a Premium view of the Bellagio Fountains and it is supposed to be block. Will have to see. I only want the Balcony I really like the fresh air and being able to walk outside.
    So far I might crash DANNYOCEAN’S batchelor party, will try to meet up with NurseLisa and Hubby, see if I can catch dannyg1001, see if Tanner5586 will let me play BJ and craps see if Charlie8 and mdm4sfest and Blueberries and if neuroboy can get together for a VMB get together.
    So I was able to get the Wife to come along. OK Caesar’s bribed her with a Macy’s Gift Card.
    MGM is going to send her to Aria’s spa and I got MyVEGAS to spring for Two Third row Center section tickets to KA and Tournament of Kings and CSI experience and a Tasting tour at Trattoria del Lupo at Woldgang Puck. Hey free stuff to play a slot program at work. And I have a lot of MLIFE Express Comps to use up this trip.
    Got a new DSLR so pics should be really good but don’t know how it is to load. Will have Tapatalk and my Iphone so that should work too.
    So Here is the Plan this trip.
    1. Get in and check out the Wrap around Suite at Cosmopolitan. Meet up with Casino Host. Some VMB told me one of the Host is really hot so going to get her PIC.
    2. Meet up with UKFanatic at MB to tear up the Baccarat and Blackjack table.
    3. Send DW to the Aria Spa. (on UKFanatic’s suggestion that it is better choice than Bellagio) and send her to Qua on Friday.
    4. Take DW to High Roller at LiNQ. Any one suggest a good time to go?
    5. Hit up Lion’s Share. Going to put in $300. I’ve been bit by the lion’s share bug. If there is no line. I have to do this now every trip.
    6. Do the CSI: The Experience (MYVEGAS comp)
    7. Hit the Pool this time. (LMAO like that is always on the list and never do)
    8. Play the BIG Single DEAL OR NO DEAL machine
    9. See Ka and Tournament of Kings with DW.

    Think that is enough for now. All packed going to head to airport in a little. Wish I could take the Hawker.

    :wave:

    I like the look of that suite. Though I'm not a big fan of this open bathroom concept. It's too hip for me. I like to do my business in private.

    Better luck on the gambling. It looks like Cosmo may be rating bacc a little lower than other places. Do you know if they use 8 decks or 6?

    The whole commission thing sucks. I realize it would be +EV without commission but being down and then having to dig in further and pay commissions at the end must blow. Also realizing that $2025 in commission means you won over $40k in banker bets on a single shoe but still ended up in the red. At those stakes though you're hardly one decent shoe away from getting back into the black.

    It was a banker shoe but the min you thing that the player would win

    I did lose 18k. On the first -19 hands of the last shoe. Lost. 17 of 19 hands.

    I don't get there rating. Plus. I for got to ask when she ended and I color up and left.


    So looking back. I made 5k on the shoe I cut but lost on the end of the last shoe.

    Ok from now on. Only play shoes I cut.


    I'll take pics of the suite in day time. And post later
