    My Trip Report

    The flights and hotels have reserved and now it's time for this guy to venture off to the WSOP Monsterstack on Wednesday. My plan is to play the $1500 WSOP Monsterstack event that starts on 06/12, tentatively I plan on starting on the Saturday starting day. For the first time I am going to fly Delta out of Green Bay with a quick stop in Minneapolis and on to Vegas. I'm just tired of the drive home from Milwaukee late at night and I get home from Green Bay in 40 minutes, plus a casino is across the street from the Green Bay airport. I am scheduled to arrive on 06/10 at around 9:00 pm if everything is on time. My friend Ope will be joining me for the first three nights and he's going to head home Saturday morning, That still leaves us plenty of time for mischief, royal flush hunting and the occasional drink or two. Or 17. He will be flying out of Milwaukee on the same day on Delta as well and we will meetup in Minneapolis and take the same flight to LAS. He also talked me into upgrading to Delta Comfort for $70 on the way out there. But it'll be worth it as it includes free beer and booze for the duration of the flight. :drunk::drunk::drunk::drunk:

    I'm staying two nights comped at Aria which includes $75 in freeplay and $100 in resort credit for the first two nights and then onto Caesars for 5 nights comped in the Augustus Tower which includes $250 in freeplay. I enjoying playing a shit ton of DDB VP and the $0.50 up to the $2 level so that will be the plan the first few nights. However, ZERO dollars of that will probably be spent at a Caesars property due to the recent gutting of the paytables.

    Of course I will be attempting to do some live updates the first few nights hjopefully of many 4AOK's and hopefully some royal flushes. I will also start a thread in the casino gaming poker thread to update my chip stack as the day(s) progress. I would also encourage other Monsterstack players from the prestigious VMB to update in the thread if they are playing as well.

    The Tapatalk app is loaded onto both my iPad and iPhone so hopefully updates will come frequently.

    I haven't done a trip report in sometime so hopefully I can keep everyone entertained and provide some fun and interesting reading material for a few days, It will in no way compare to a BeeJay trip report or any other creative writers from the board. But I'll give it my best shot. From what I've read lately the latest craze is to post your bankroll for the trip, so I will oblige and put it the next post to test the Tapatalk app. Wish me luck and let the fun begin...

    Of course before every trip to Vegas, certain things must be taken care of. [​IMG]

    Yeah, it's fun when that happens. I got quad Aces from AK suited on Super Aces bonus in Tunica once...:confused2:

    And since I know trex likes his Ultimate X...here is some good reading for down time.

    8/5 DDB Ultimate X Strategy

    Strategy for 7/5 DDB is identical. For 9/5 DDB, one holds Aces Full instead of breaking it.

    Good luck! Look forward to more pics!!
