    My Trip Report

    It happened. haha.
    Wife and I took an overnighter to Reno.
    We came up here (originally) to get a $200 Swarovski Gift Card, at Eldorado...Then I got the good news that I'm KEEPING my job, and we saw the CET Spring Tier Credit Bonus..so we decided to get 1000TC at Harrahs Reno, on $ 8/5 Bonus Poker.
    We left out of Modesto late (Kris had a girls day with a pedi and salon appt)
    So we didn't get up here till 930pm.
    We came straight over to Ichibahn, at Harrahs, where we just wrapped up having dinner. (will post pics momentarily)
    We're gonna get the car out of Valet and take it over to Eldorado and check in and go to bed (Kris girls day was an all day event, so she's knocked out)
    The plan is to get up tommorow, get our $200 Gift card and then play for 4 hours at Harrahs.

    so here we are

    haha, so I got down to $1.25 on my $25 freeplay (playing 5c 7/5 BP Triple-Play UltX) and thought I was busted..but somehow strung together a few multipliers and got up to $55.. so I switched uo to 10c denom, and it just kept hitting! Got it up to $112, and hit CASH THE FUCK OUT!
    Thanks GSR! $50 freeplay turned into $112!
    Time to go check in Eldorado and collect my $60 in free play (chips) and play some $5 UTH before calling it a night.

    WooHoo!
    FINALLY got a decent room here at Eldorado!
    USUALLY I get stuck in an "Economy" room, which is so tiny, it's a joke! (Only ONE FULL-size bed, the bathroom door hits the toilet, etc, lol)
    This time, I got a single king "Deluxe" room...although my wife is of a cement wall 5' away. haha
    Time for me to take my Dogfish Head 90-Minute IPA (I brought a couple with me) and go get my $60 free chips, and play some UTH...

    Meh...lost the $60 in free chips and $10 of my own in five hands of UTH (it was a $10 table though, I should have passed)
    Then proceeded to lost the other $90 in a 25c 9/6 DDB with a sequential Royal...
    I didn't last long at all...45 minutes I suspect.
    Here's to hoping we can get through the 1000TC on $700, haha.

    ok, so lots of pics to upload...finished at 1249TC for the day, with a cash out voucher for $900.
    The machine started puking 2-4 quads on that last $300.
    the first was quad 4s on the redraw!

    and to cap it off, another quad ducks
    after that, it slowed down and like I said we cashed out with $900.
    All in all, down only $100.
