    Yeah, that game is a major pain in the ass to play well. I'm not surprised it's dying. Holding split cards generally tends to be a good thing though. At least you went on a major run!

    But here are a couple hits...

    Yep, that’s the one. So I’m extending another two nights. I try and stay in the same room and conversation ensues...

    Front desk - “Not free this time but we can keep you in there for a few, shouldn’t be much.”

    Me - “Cool, let’s see how much...”

    Front desk - “Wow, we can get you in for a great price of $275 a night!”

    Me - “Hell no... Standard room please.”

    I would have done $50, but that? Nope. Ironic thing is They put me in the room next door. Currently in the Bellagio sports book and put $330 on the Bucks -6. And another $55 on Draymond Green to get at least 8 rebounds. Later, heading down to Circa hopefully $350 richer.

    Circa craps pit boss = total dick. He was yelling at everyone, especially the dealers. I bought in for 800 at a 25 table and requested red too, so he proceeded to yell at the dealer that I got red.

    Hit the Tall... Tried to take a pic and he yelled at me, I went to stick right while he was looking away...

    310 on that and walked away down a few hundred overall. UTH was decent, left even on that. Hit the Cal, and it was nuts in there. Up 45 on 5 shoes of DD blackjack.

    Now I’m attempting to get back to the strip. No Uber or lyft, so cab city baby!

    Is that the standard payout nowadays on ATS on the Strip? I thought ATS was 35-1 and 175-1? Awesome that you hit it though!

    61AB449F-E7F4-485D-B90E-7C1761C1D37F.jpeg Good morning Vegas... Only here can I go all out all damn night and be ready for the 6am work meeting. Tried the Starbucks at PH and Cosmo the last two mornings and Cosmo wins. Body seems to be revolting since, A - I’m not as young as I used to be and B - this carb shock to the system is starting to take its toll. And I haven’t even been close to a pan roast today...

    Man that was rough trying to get back from Circa last night. No ride share whatsoever, and there were about 15 people in front of me waiting for sporadic cabs. There was a party bus that wanted $50 per person and I almost grabbed a seat. He wouldn’t budge on the price at all. So after a little while, finally got back to the Bellagio. Cashed my little sports bet (don’t get me started on Milwaukee...) and sat down at my old go to, Crazy 4 Poker. True definition of a roller coaster and I got a few hours in before finally grabbing my remaining chips and getting out with something. Plexiglass and masks really make communication almost impossible on these games without yelling. But, I had fun and the drink service was tremendous until it was just water time. Next on the agenda, maybe some breakfast and definitely a nap. All said and done, I’m still up 2K and change which I’ll take since I’ve been paying for meals and such in cash. And a welcome change from the last few trips... :thumbsup:

    Good morning all. Wow, yesterday was a whirlwind! So last night was Sunset Station Oyster Bar for pan roast and it was AWFUL. First bite was a bit off, and I knew after a couple more it just wasn’t for me. The waiter could tell by my face I wasn’t happy with it and they offered to remake which I politely declined since I wanted to get outta there and back to the strip to meet up with @luck.ofthe.draw . Open craps table at 10 so I took a stab at it. Cold... I shoulda just played the don’t right off the bat, but nope. Lose, lose, lose, lose, my turn to roll, hit three points, seven out.... So it could have been worse. The highlight was finding the Eureka Blast slot that had the lock feature. Hit a small bonus, but the back up spin is real people!

    Wow this is the first time I've ever read that it wasn't good. Any idea particularly what was wrong with it?
