    My Trip Report

    I just started posting here and there on VMB in the past couple of months. I've enjoyed reading the trip reports, so now it's my turn to reciprocate. Wifey Geotwink and I are flying out of Minneapolis this evening and staying at the Paris comped for 4 nights. She's a super-low roller, just wants to crank on penny slots a nickel at a time and get popped on Coors Lights. I'm a low-roller as well, but my bankroll usually is around $600-$700 per day. If I stuck with NLHE, I'd probably make money every trip, but the itch gets to me, and I end up tossing a number of hundies into penny slots and at the craps table while slamming about 20 Miller Lites a day. This trip I'm going to try my hand at the bar-top VP as well.

    It's our second trip this year. We were in town for March Madness and I was able to get about a third of the way towards Diamond Status at CET. If I do well enough, I'm hoping to be about 6k short with another trip in August to get me there. We'll spend the majority of our reward credits on buffet lunches each day, then go veg out at the pool for a few hours before hitting the games.

    My hopes are for a few good chip shots for you, and perhaps an elusive beginner's luck royal. Stay tuned...

    Aeropuerto, bicholas! Flying Delta, Doesn't Ever Leave The Airport, we'll see how they do. At least they gave us an exit row.

    Cashed out $30 up. Geotwink won $10 on Van Helsing. I emptied my 4-year old girl bladder for the first time and we are off to the Cromwell to hit the Batman slots.

    NLHE at Ballys. Bought in for a hundo. Up about a hundo right now. Geotwink is MIA, but it doesn't matter where you get your appetite, as long as you eat at home. Whip count: 8. Piss count: 4.

    Cashed out $110 up at poker, went to bed after being up for 23 hours. Going to brush my teeth, get in my morning MSD (massive satisfying dump) and bake in the sun at the pool for a while.

    Good luck on the trip! You are off to a fabulous start! Love the Paris view and also the 2s. I also get $300 in brand new 1s for tips (it's my thing) but I like the $2s.

    It puts the lotion on Geotwink's skin or else it gets the hose again.
