First time doing this, hopefully the right way.. This is the second time in Vegas this month. :evillaugh November 6 - 7:10pm departure from SJC Airport - After two time delays - Get to Vegas 8:30pm, take a cab to where I'll be staying as my Aria Host comp'd my room. - Streets were a mad house all week as it was SEMA week (Automotive convention) - Put bags away and went downstairs to play DD Blackjack for a bit, was up $600 in about 15 mins. - Spent a 2-3 hours walking around and meeting up with friends - 1 am was approaching and my friends and I went to grab dinner at Planet Hollywood, nothing fancy there, just Earl's Sandwich. - It was around 11pm, I was up $2975.. then worst move I made this trip happened next.. November 7-8 - 2 am came around I started to play DD BJ and Single Deck at PH - Running on zero sleep.. By 6 am, I lost about $3,000 + loaned my coworker $1000.. thinking WTF as I walked back to Aria and went up to bed for 2 hours then off to SEMA 2013 - Went to my meetings at 8:30 am and did a partial walk around the buildings. - 1 pm came by and it was off to Lotus of Siam for a quick vendor lunch. - Took a cab back to ARIA to sleep for 2 hours, then back to convention center for a 30 mins meeting at 4pm.. - As soon as I finished the meeting, it was back to ARIA to play DD BJ and FREE BET BJ. - Had dinner at Aria Cafe that night as I was too tired to get out of the hotel. - Aria DD BJ killed me around 2 am by taking another $1,400 from my bankroll - Decided it was time to drink up and just enjoy good company for tonight/this morning. - Went to bed around 8 am with my head spinning at like 100 mph. :confused2: November 8-9 - The Action Days - Woke up around 11 am, my friend went to Bank of America in Chinatown for more $$$$ as he was down a few hundreds and ATM limit was not enough.. - Got the $1000 back and went to play Free Bet Blackjack at Aria.. Result after 45 mins: - Went to SEMA show again around 12pm, took 45 mins from Aria - Stayed all day to take photos for coverage and had more meetings.. - Left around 5 pm, the plan was to go to Caesars for dinner at the Bacchanal Buffet, went there, line was too long.. Took a cab to Cosmo for Wicked Spoon. Turned out to be awesome, love how they had scallops dish and octopus salad. - 11 pm approached us and my boss text me and stated he was playing at PH, so I went there to play some more DD BJ and just to hang out. - Started playing with him at the $15 min table, I tend to stick to $50+ tables, after playing my average of $150-200 for 5 hands, the dealer told me to go play at the higher table to my left as the people were f'ing up my hands. - Having listened to her, I went to play at the $25 min table cause the dealer was cute - After 30 mins, I was up $850 and my boss started to play here.. - At about 3am, I was up $1500, thinking man.. if only this can be more! - Went back to the original table to tip the dealer that recommended me to leave the table. She was trilled I was winning - 4 am approached me and I was the only one left playing, doubled my $300 bet (I got 6 and 5) and got a picture! 21 baby! Feeling good, I pressed more and more.. - 6 am and came 3 attractive girls to the table with good bank roll, we all got a few drinks and just joking around, two of the girls spilled two of their drinks on them and me.. oops, tips make everything better right? Ended up exchanging #s and it seems like we'll be going to meet up in SoCal soon. - I was on fire and pressed on when I was on a streak that seemed almost never ending. - Went to bed around 8 am with $6000 in cash.. November 9 - Woke up at 10 am, feeling REALLY GOOD and happy... - Had a meeting at Aria Buffet at 11 am, it was good & productive. - Went down and played some more at Aria FREE BET Blackjack as my departure flight back home (Thank goodness) was 3:45pm.. - Ended up the trip with $6900.. Brought $4,600. At PH, after playing $200-300 average, the pit boss said I will be contacted on Monday regarding an assigned Host. I feel bad I didn't give Mlife/Aria that much play, but I'm glad I won at PH. Thank you for reading.
