    My Trip Report

    Two of my greatest friends and fellow dice throwers are meeting me bright and early (6am) tomorrow for the quick 5 hour drive to our favorite playground. Plan is to get there by 11am and leave the following day around 5pm.

    With commitments, kids and busy life we could only manage to break away for a single night (hence the 6am hate mission), but rest assured, we will bang out plenty of gambling/drinking hours during our brief foray.

    Our visit will be focused on the craps tables, followed by some stints at the slots to decompress, use FP, and smoke cigars.

    With such a short stint I cannot guarantee the type of live report you all are accustomed to, but I will certainly take photos and try to update our craps missions at The D and Golden Gate, with a sprinkling of any slot hits worthy of your time.

    The 12 yr Balvenie, cigars, Kodiak, Pedialyte and BR are set for take off.

    If any of you fellow degens stumble across 3 middle aged gents (two whites, one asian) acting like children at the D or GG craps table you've found us! Would love to have some VMBers toss some dice with us!

    Until then...

    it really does sound like fun.
    it beats the hell out of the gray and dreary Midwest.
    I hope you can report back with some big-win stories.

    Damn, that sounds like you’re going to have a great time with your buddies @Craps all day. I wish I still had it in me to go on a 30 hour binge. Hope you guys win a ton o’ money at the dice tables. Looking forward to your report.

    :peace: :beer:

    Seriously - if you get a wild-hair while playing at 'the D', right next to the crap table is their UTH table... if you see 1st base open, turn around and play a single hand, blind for $100. Your odds of winning for one hand are 50/50.
    Bet it this way:
    $15 on 'Ante', $15 on 'Blind', $10 on 'Trips' and $60 on 'Play'. If you beat the dealer, you win at least $60...$75, so long as the dealer has at least a pair... perhaps a good deal more than that, if you end up with trips or better.
    Color-out & bet all of your winnings (if any) split between the hard 6 & 8!
    ;)
    :beer:
    Good luck!

    How I'd love to that close to pull off a hit and run like that. May the dice be hot and the drinks be plentiful!

    We try very hard not to smoke cigars at the tables as to not piss everyone off. Kodiak is my normal vice so I just continually add and keep a low profile. Pics later...
