    My Trip Report

    It certainly doesn't feel very long since my last Vegas trip. I was there for NYE. Then just last week I spent 4 days at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, so I'm hoping I get to do different things this trip. Not just a full on gambling trip like usual....yeah right...

    Driving in from LA today since mom doesn't like to fly...the entourage for this trip is quite impressive since two events coincide...the Super Bowl and Chinese New Year. So I have about 13 people living off my comps; about half mom's friends and half mine...I'm spreading them out among different properties. At some point during the trip I will get all frustrated, but this has been an annual ritual during this time so I'm used to it.

    I have pretty good rules regarding comped guests, basically don't bother me or want to have meals with me and I'm fine...lol. Hopefully not too many obligatory dinners (I prefer pho and DJK on spring mountain instead of fancy hotel dinners but then again you want stuff that you don't get usually)

    I'm also trying once again to lose a few pounds, and back to back Vegas trips certainly don't help...just remember not to scarf the food basket or in room snacks and I should be ok...I do a lot of exercise daily.

    The way I see TRs is they are a good way to organize my thoughts and plan what to do; also to share happy moments and vent frustration and anger.

    So today will be staying at the Cosmo, requested rooms near the elevator since mom doesn't like to walk too much (replaced hip last year).

    I left 750k at the Cosmo from the last trip, wiring 500k to Palazzo for this trip as well. So total cash bankroll is around 1.25m.

    Credit lines add another 1.5-2m or so, but I don't foresee myself getting too crazy since the market has cost me a lot of money this year.

    Why Palazzo long time followers of my TRs will ask? Because Wynn disappointed me last trip and this will be a final trip to the Wynn for awhile unless they can draw me back (unlikely since I don't like my host anymore and the limits sucks).

    V/P is allowing decent action, which I will follow up in the next post.

    So currently in town, to get decent rebates and airfare, I can only go to Cosmo, Wynn, and V/P.

    For decent limits, only V/P allow double limits on craps, and 2k anyway on roulette.

    For baccarat, it is still around 7% of your line for all three of these so no difference.

    The reason V/P gives me higher limits is because I play at their MBS property, and have 5m line there. They are not scared of a little action like Wynn has become...

    The only trepidation I have is I don't ever remember winning at V/P, so that's a concern...

    Good Luck Natedog

    See you for Super Bowl and Chinese New Year. Sounds like rounding up cats.

    DJK on me. V/P will be a change so lets see.

    Have a good drive and I'll see you there next week.

    Have a great trip. It will be interesting to get a perspective on V/P HL. A couple years ago I gambled in the their HL and remember nothing of it. I wasn't even drunk. We were just killing time before the stores opened.
