    My Trip Report

    Just got to my Southwest gate at ONT. This airport is dead! Zero line at baggage check. Zero line at security. I paid extra for Business Select for nothing...lol. It's only a hour flight, so stupid move Sindustry...lol. Flight departs in about an hour and then I get to deal with the traffic madness in Vegas.

    Landed and waiting at baggage claim. It is surprisingly quiet here at LAS.

    took shuttle to Caesars...surprisingly quick...stopped at Westin, Flamingo, then Caesars...easy peasy! Checkin was very quick too...went to Diamond registration and was helped immediately. Original room was a Palace King, but was able to get an Octavius 2-queen (will have three buddies staying here tomorrow).

    Just dropped $700 on 10-play $1 ultimate X.

    Going to get some of that lobster bisque at the Caesars food court and then slow down the gambling with some low limit slots.

    Lobster Bisque from Phillips was not bad...I think I ate at this restaurant in Baltimore before.

    Looks good so far. I assume you are there for CES? I can't imagine anyone going otherwise. Oh, and one more thing...

    UTH! UTH! UTH!

    Back in the room to rest a bit.. After lunch, I took a stroll through the forum shops...nothing to buy. Here are a couple pics from the gallery in the forum shops.

    After the quick stroll, I went back to the casino and hit a series of Penny, Quarter, $1, and $5 slots. I don't have any pics, but basically got $250 back from this run...$200 of which came from a $1 Blazing 7's machine where I hit mixed 7's. I went back to UTH and started off betting $25 a spot, as I was a bit gun shy from earlier. I won the first few hands, so I pressed up to $50 a spot. As soon as I did, the dealer dealt four Aces with a 9 on the board. I had Jack high in my hand, which made it a live kicker, so I played. Dealer flips over pocket 10's...whew, board is quads, so dealer's pair of tens becomes a 10 kicker...hell yeah! I get paid $1500 on the trips, $500 on the Blind, and $50 each on the Ante and Play bets...MONEY BACK! I pressed up to $75 ante/blind and won a couple hands but then started losing again. Got up to $3000 up, but stopped when I dropped back to $2000 up.

    Went to play some more slots...won $25 on a $25 TD machine...lol. Lost a series of $20's on random $5 and $1 slots. Saw Pleepleus' CleoII game so gave that a go. Not bad...

    [​IMG]

    I then saw a UltX game and hopped on...10-play 50-cent...dropped $300 on that. Note to self...maybe I should not play UltX...lol.

    Back at the room now, relaxing and about to eat these awesome Macarons!

    The slot machine is showing I earned just over 900 tier credits so far. Not sure if this includes my table play or not. Just need to play 100 TC's worth to get the bonus.

    Just played an hour of UTH and up $2100 this time. No premium bonus hands but won a lot of my 4x bets. Also varied my bets more...$25 ante when cold and pressed up to $100 ante when hot. Hit and run working so far. Need to keep my degeneracy in check so I don't give it all back tonight...lol

    Nope! Although I do like that pieCe of the woman with the Tommy...few grand, I believe!

    I'll be staying at MGM tomorrow through Sunday, so shoot me a PM if you want to go full-degen. I will be playing in the Exec Invitational Poker Tourney at MGM on Sat.
