    pp, when you get there, can you take pics on the progress of the High Limit room at The Beau? I was there a few weeks ago & they're using the area in front of Stalla & their bar.
    Don't forget to stop in at 875 (bar off the casino floor) where Dian Diaz who used to be the house band at Bellagio. She's pretty good!
    Win a bunch!

    Nice pics! Chicken looks really good!

    2.91%. :( Any pick 'em (pick-a-pair) game where three of a kind pays only 20 coins vs. 25 is no good, imo.

    I assume the 5 was showing so yea that's the correct play. If not, a lot of those plays would be wrong/somewhat crazy. :)

    I didn't go to Biloxi or The Beau. MGM/MLIFE is really not wanting me to stay or play at any of their properties. I called my host and at first she was like no problem what do you want. She pulled my account and there are notes all over my account. No LOC, Cash only, (If I cash a check or use the CC I will have to pay the fees. NO comps up front. Comps will be given after they are earned) WTF


    My host said she could book me something but it will have to be billed to her branch office and that I can not get any upfront comps. I talked to leslie chow, broncofn, packer and natedog666, and they all agreed that there is NO reason for me to play at any MLIFE/MGM property.

    So no reason to go to Beau. That is just crazy. I mean the PGP program was yes we will comp you but you must play. My host has told me that since it has gone into effect, but I'm on Casino rate and back end comps.


    Wynn/Encore, Cosmopolitan, CET, SLS, and The Trop all still want my business.


    I called Harrah's New Orleans to book last min and they booked me 3 nights with no problem. Keep in mind I have not been to New Orleans in about 4 years. Last time was for the Super Bowl weekend when 49ers played the Ravens. They looked and said I have not been their in a few year but they looked at my Caesar's play and said no problem. Everything is COMPED.


    I do see the budget cuts in New Orleans with the Palm room to limit drinks and food is limited to ordering 2 or 4 items if your are diamond or 7*. Blackjack rules in High Limit are still good on the floor they H17. No free hands in baccarat. You have to bet both sides to move the shoe.

    I locked in a very small 5 figure win. Hey, I had a great time in New Orleans. I was able to eat some great food and drinks. I hanged out with some friends that live there and meet some at the LSU/ARK game.

    I did stop at L'auberge in Baton Rouge for some quick gambling.

    I only made it to New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Shreveport twice.

    I'll post pics.
