Well, as soon as I can finish up with a customer and pick up my son from school, I should be on my way to Lake Tahoe My current CET status is that I'm four 9500TC trips away from renewing 7*. I have 5 trips scheduled. My primary goal this trip is to earn 9500TC this weekend (one 2500TC day and one 1000TC day). The promotion is 3000TC for a season long ski pass (for my BFF). He has already compensated me for this task. By my account, I will have about $2000 in promo chips to use for "chip conversion", and the plan is to go down early Saturday morning and sit at a 3:2 Blackjack table and "flat bet" at $50-$100 a hand (haven't decided the bet level yet). Rycelover is trying to convince me to try 1326 at $50 a hand. Once all the promo chips are gone, I will cash out and start the days slot play. Reno is an option, and I have about $1200 in promo chips for Reno, but since I'm staying there on Thanksgiving, I won't drive up there unless I have really horrible luck and need to do "chip conversion". I'm trying to do this with as little (of my own) cash outlay as possible. Of course, the secondary goal is to win $$$. Food is taken care of, I have $60 in food credit some food credit at Hard Rock Casino (across the street) and $376 in RCs on my card. The weather forecast is partly cloudy, but in the 50s-60s Saturday and Sunday. Hope to have some Slot Porn to post, but you know how that goes. I just want to "escape" at <$1 per TC. (including promo chips). Should be doable.
