    My Trip Report

    I am taking an overnight trip to Blue Chip in Michigan City Indiana on a comped night. I got upgraded to the new hotel tower due to a connection I have here. I chose today to take advantage of some offers I have here, free buffet and some free play.

    I have been planning to do this for over a month. I was determined to make it happen after my father passed, just to clear my head.

    Plans...
    1. Play some VP.
    2. Hit the spa up to R&R (no services, just steam/hot tub)
    3. Play Baccarat here, they usually have a midi $5 table.
    4. Craps
    5. Eat at the steakhouse.
    6. Find a spot to watch the Blackhawks play tonight.

    I will try to take pictures of wins and the casino but I know Tring got pinched here for taking a picture it may not happen. I do not want to embarrass the guy I know here by getting booted from the casino!

    Well I got my money back, I still do not understand how the lady and the front desk can tell me I have access to steam, hot tub, then somehow forget that the steam/hot tub does not work... meh.

    I went down to the pool, and it was up to my tits with kids screaming.... I like my kid, but others not so much. So I will relax with a nap, then get ready to head down to the steakhouse. I will check to see if it get going tomorrow.

    I remember going there once back when I lived in Indiana. Can't remember how i did. I do recall the free 12 pack of coke I got from the players club. Good luck on your trip!

    Mini is no touch baccarat. That is still super low for any baccarat game. The only place I've seen with limits that low is stadium baccarat at Palazzo.

    The buffet is okay but you can also use that offer in the Deli which is fab. The game should be on throughout the casino and in The Game, which I think is open tonight.

    Thanks I thought mini was the version on the floor at a BJ type table and midi was in between and then the Big table baccarat.

    Yeah it is crazy, only one table of it as well. I have been here on a Friday night and it was $5. Table is open now, I will hit that up after dinner.

    So far down $60 on VP, gonna play for 30 mins more then back to the room to drink a few beers and watch the Hawks.

    Plee as you know, I always guess wrong on Baccarat! What do you think I should do? Follow the wins or ride out on either bank or player? I forgot my dice at home so I cannot follow Bronco's recommendation! I am buying in for 40 units.

    Sometimes, the shoe is streaky or it can be choppy. People have made money both ways. It just really depends on the table. I saw one at CP the other night and it was 6 bank, 1 player, 6 bank, 2 player, 6 bank. 18 banks out of 21 hands would be a monster for a big bank better.

    Hi Wanker, That was me who uses dice. Go with the flow. If it is a banker shoe go with banker every time. If player go that way every time. Try that and pray. then take your winnings to the craps table and do like you did with me at Wynn. Have fun wanker!

    Ah that's right! Sorry. I was hoping the table would be empty so I can ask permission for the dice, I did not know if it would be allowed here... and then I left em! Yeah I think I will go with the flow and press after two wins in a row, and yes pray!

    Right now the table is full and they are still doing the initial shuffle. Over an hour to get table open, crazy.

    I do plan on some craps, BR is limits so if baccarat goes south maybe I will stick to VP to crack that progressive. That night at the Wynn was probably the best craps table I have been on, or at least for a long time. Good times.
