    My Trip Report

    Rycelover's Local Degen Live TRs

    Since I frequent local casinos on the weekends and mostly visit AC (CET and Borgata) and sometimes Mohegan Sun in Connecticut I figured I should keep these mini TRs in one thread. I intend on making the TRs live. Hope to keep these interesting...

    4/29-5/1 Mohegan Sun

    I got comped tickets and 2 rooms for Jason Aldean concert. Going with gf, her sister and friends for her sister's birthday. Her friends don't play much but are heavy drinkers. Should be a fun weekend. Hopefully there's no traffic on I95.

    Checked in dumped our bags and made a beeline for the craps table, which turned instantly into Sh!t ... $2k buy in down the drain in about 1/2 hour.

    Walked around to find the HL room and bought in for $2k at bacc, quarter shoe later I got a call to have some dinner, so I cashed out with this

    The gambling today has been brutal to say the least. Not only did I lose the $4k that I was up but coughed up $8k of my BR.

    Going to dinner at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse now.

    After dinner decided to claw back some of my bankroll. Bought in for $1500 at craps and banked a small $200 win, which I parlayed into a nice comeback at bacc. In for $1500 out for this

    [​IMG]

    Played 1 1/4 shoe; here's the full shoe- really nice run

    [​IMG]

    Hard fought comeback to being down $8k to $2k. I only wish I had the balls to press harder than I did. A depleted BR made me consciously gun shy.

    I think that's a big leak in my game.

    Still getting used to the variance swings of this game. Any suggestions on how to deal with the ups and downs? Maybe this deserves its own thread... Love to hear your thoughts.

    Shit! the gambling gods were not cooperating; down $9k for the trip. Heading home after grabbing lunch at the Asian noodle bar.

    I'm hoping my theo covers the room charges. Haha is been a fun trip with the birthday girl!

    Jumped in my car in this on the drive down Garden State Parkway to Atlantic city for a weekend of gambling degeneracy. And will pick up a Home Depot gift card and a cruise certificate this weekend as well.

    Craps was for the lack of a better word, crappy, so headed over to bacc and made back $1200 buy in for a nice little profit.

    Booked another $500 small win in mini-bacc at Ballys ($25-10000) and picked up a $30FP along with a $110FP at Caesars that I turned into winners by betting Even on roulette!

    Nice!
    Why play craps at all, when you always win at Bac?

    Overnight I played some bacc and should have left bc I was very tired. But I didn't listen to my body and was down $4k.

    However today is a new day...

    Slowly clawing my way back by locking down small wins here and there.

    Bought in for $1800 and cashed out this playing bacc at Borgata.

    [​IMG]

    $600 buy in at freebet BJ at Harrahs.

    [​IMG]

    $800 buy in at craps resulted in this small profit.
