    It's just the opposite for me. Time seems to be flying by. Work is keeping me very busy. Hopefully, this Friday (12/12) will be a nice relaxing day before we head to the airport early Saturday morning. We'll be flying Southwest Airlines (with drink coupons) so I'll start drinking Bailey's as soon as the drink cart comes by. Soon after that (okay, a few hours of flying first), I'll be sitting at the blackjack table once again.

    I'm T-4 and it's going fast! Actually wish it would go a little slower, one of my kids (4-footed) is sick and I hate leaving him. :(

    Don't play at a 6:5 table. [​IMG]

    Hit 77 against dealer's 8, 9, 10, or Ace [​IMG]

    When dealer has a 10, hit till you have soft 19 or hard 17. [​IMG]

    Never split 5's. [​IMG]

    KorkedBatz,

    Have a great time, drink a lot, be courteous to others around you, drink a lot, tip the friendly dealers and waitresses, drink a lot, be patient - the cards will come your way, drink a lot, take potty breaks when necessary, drink a lot, and have a great time.

    If you're a 'cut and run' type of player, I really can't help you. Personally, I prefer to find a table and sit there for as long as I feel like playing that session. Actually, I love playing blackjack and as long as my bankroll keeps me going, I've been able to average as much as 11.5 hours a day at the blackjack table over 4+ days.

    One of my problems tends to be not being patient enough to wait for the right time to start bumping up my bets. I usually like to be ahead by several hundred dollars that session, then if I win 2-3 hands in a row or after a nice double down win, I'll start bumping up my bet by one chip. If I win again, I'll take back my winnings for that hand (less one chip) and would bump up my bet by another chip. If I'm lucky enough to keep a winning streak going, I can do very well until the streak finally ends.

    I had my best trip ever about three months ago and I hope I can catch a few more nice winning streaks. My best advice is simply to have fun, and don't bet more than you're comfortable in betting. Oh yeah, one more thing - did I mention to drink a lot? My preferred drink at the tables is a coffee kaulua (I probably spelled that wrong) if it's early morning and after that, I tend to stick with Bailey's on the rocks.

    I just turned '50' a few days ago and this trip with be my celebration so I plan to drink plenty of Bailey's and play lots of blackjack and hopefully bring home more $$$ than I came with.
