    Couldn't remember, meant to say @MGinCO 's bank..

    Though I want to call it MY bank now. (more foreshadowing?)

    (Pit, not dealers)

    Don’t listen to music if it doesn’t work for you,
    it worked great for me in a empty casino w. maybe 8 patrons max.
    Let’s get it!

    [​IMG]
    *found the missing song that showed private only,

    Was sitting here, looking at the empty casino, thinking about the salty Craps & BJ dealers, the low offers we get from Binions relative to how much play we give them, the room faults, the closed restaurants, (Aw Jeez, later found out the FC bonus that was supposed to be applied never was, turned out ok, restaurants were so closed we couldn't try to use them),


    and this pops up



    (if you don't understand the heavy jamaican accent, he said
    he lent out his mercy, but hasn't gotten it back yet)

    :cry::goofy:it's funny how tides shift.:confused::whistle:


    From highs to lows,
    then lows to highs,
    seemed to be the theme,
    of the trip.

    OMG I HAD A MOMENT
    [​IMG]

    just met two young, cute, binions dice dealers that will be working tomorrow.

    I asked them to watch my machine,
    They told me they’d be sure to slip something in my drink.

    PSA : [Come to think of it, I think I did leave my fresh drink there, probably not a great idea for anyone out there in general.]
    CalVidVegasOMG 504.JPG

    or maybe I was empty.
    (You can really spread out when the whole place is empty)
    It did read as a pretty funny joke, and the escalator to the room was 10 paces away, so I think I could make it...

    ?

    Before they showed up, this guy bumming a cigarette off me was the highpoint of human interaction for the night.

    CalVidVegasOMG 485.JPG
    :noangel:"Drugged by two girls in an empty casino, I've had dreams like that. JKNK";)
    One of them, she said, can be seen in the background of that old binions tv show.
    She looked quite young to have been doing it for 10 years.
    They were just off shift.
    Started talking craps w em.
    I mean, if there is one thing I know too much about, it might could be craps.
    They don’t know & don’t care about the competition.
    It’s a job.

    They were there, like me, to try to drink themselves to sleep.

    I was fully in the rhythm of this song, probably on my third replay, enjoying hitting buttons to the changing tempo,
    When they came up and sat down,
    and when I heard them speaking Spanish,
    (~2:45 am)

    It was like a tired drunken mirage, or a
    movie sequence where things suddenly go slow-mo.


    after talking craps a while, I asked if they’d let me play it for em.

    They kindly indulged me.

    It went over meh.

    I stand by it, it’s much better bassy in headphones than a low volume iPhone speaker competing with the ambient music.

    ;)Hope I didn’t annoy them too much.:noangel:

    Then one hit 5/5 on keno $1 for $800

    *addendum, I thought I got the jist of the song, but as I told them, solo hablo un poco, just checked the lyric translation, good thing I didn't understand it that good.
    https://lyricstranslate.com/en/la-samoana-samoan-girl.html

    what are the odds of this actually happening?
    .."It was all a dream"..

    wanna know my favorite Chicano Batman song? No? Can I play it for you anyways?


    The two open BJ tables on the way over, as you can see, they were emptied by the time I sat down:

    If you're playing the 10 play machine your CW should be Marie Elena from 9a-5p, she was happy to bring Stone to me.

    They should put a little sticker on the machine advertising that.

    Oh, more stories, but imagine me upping to .50 with that dreaded feeling of, I want this to end, one way or another, so I can stop playing.

    IMO when the first tinge of wanting to lose to go to bed is when you should immediately cash out.




    Btw Cal restored my faith in cocktail waitresses.

    (Craps, bj, some slots, VP)

    I did some drunken semi scientific tests (more slot than VP, stopped paying attention then) that appeared to confirm its prob 4am or later afaict.

    Sometimes tracking stuff like this is a buzzkill distraction. But I got notes in the interest of science.

    I hate to repost songs but I think one came up the third time in shuffle right now




    DISCLAIMER: I am neither aggressive nor misogynistic, in my mind I channel these things in songs (especially if it has a banging beat) in my mind into inspirational aggression against the house.

    That being said I liked this one.
    Most of them are only for VP.
    Sometimes slots.

    I’d say so.

    If I go to sleep now I might be able to catch them at the 7pm shift.

    Wow. Wait. I just remembered the title.

    Lucky v. Toast.

    We’ll see which it’ll be.

    One last teaser:

    I made an incredible breakthrough from the lowest depths of hating everything about the Cal craps table/dealers/pit to a crystal clear clarity about exactly the type of game they want to run and how you need to play there .......

    (Much later, it’s long and may deserve a breakout thread)

    Along the way I learned about chanelling bad intentions, hubris, benefits of not tipping, going with the flow, keeping the layout clean w place bets, and KISS in the middle.

    (Spoiler, if that wasn’t it)

    and how a very fast rhythmic game can go good. Especially w a 3 shooter table.

    The emptiness allows and empowers experimentation.

    Idiot (brilliant redundant?) Coffee making for Dummies

    The collapsible kettle and pour over filter accessories are useless if you don’t pack the god damned power cord.

    Might just go with the instant and immersion, though driving w bellhop ain’t no thing.

    The kettle is about as heavy as the mini keurig, but packs smaller. Prob a wash on size w brewing accessories.

    [​IMG]
    Thinking about it after the fact, the mini keurig pulls back into the lead, brews the easiest, quickest, best cup of coffee vs. instant + immersion (though will still use if trying to go light), and brewpot w. pourover (though the Aeropress does well).

    You might think you’ll run out and buy coffee, but sometimes you can’t.
    Not without coffee.

    As I intend to show the house,
    against all odds,

    one day,
    Then maybe more

    “Bitch, I told you, that I’m educated”


    [​IMG]

    They REALLY hated my $10 all the hards, working, 3 sevens, C&E.

    I hopped two numbers once and on the seven out the box said, “nice hop”.

    I did a costume change and tried it w a new attitude. Stayed still as a statue, kept my mouth shut, kept the lane clear w places vs pass/comes.

    Shooter hit a rhythm , rolls were fast, w 3 @ table, pays were fast.

    They want to run a super fast game (more rolls = > house drop).

    ANYTHING that slows the game, anything other than hards inside they hate.

    Including celebration and conversation.

    Still didn’t come out up, but felt like I learned something. Especially w only 3 at the 6 max table- all the more reason to hustle.


    (Apologies, vegas manic)

    I loved (two of) the Main Street dealers, the “dream team” were my guys. Box & pit were tolerable, except for one “nice” lady doing her job well.
