    My Trip Report

    just dropping a placeholder here, report will probably take a while, although I did get tapatalk up, so who knows.
    Maybe I'll have a fellow VMB sighting? :beer:

    I had no idea that Pharrell wrote that song for the longest time... he is the greatest songwriter of our generation, with the possible exception of Prince.

    I didn't know Pharrell was a co-writer on ^Hot in Herre" either. That song totally reminds me of my ex over our first summer of dating. Don't tell M...lol

    Trying Tapatalk post

    Newfound respect for @wasilla, could only grind out 200 pts, even going to a desperate burnout from .25 to .50 and a few $1, p of course stuck two 4oaks including lows w kicker.
    Craps table was interesting there real dead, dice would just sit and not bounce much. Was top 2 roller at table but didn’t accomplish much.

    D w as harsh w a good match at $10 min bj. Brutal dealer pulls to 21. So many. Had the get out of 22 cars, never got to use it. Craps was meh. Hit a random easy hop bet. Also would say I was top two roller but a full table w anyone and everyone buying in mid roll made for hard trekking

    Decent pull-up at cal on bj w a guy betting $25+ on the pair bet and catching them. Nearly hit his goal of getting whole to $1k (might have) but a few bad hands and a double halved him when I left doubled up.

    Mss craps always solid but the chase press always didn’t make it. Did see 3+ “puppy paw - hard 10”s I was ok. None of 3 hard parlays hit.

    High point to end the night was bj and hitting two suited pairs in a row for $2+3 bets paying 150. Cut and run.

    5 am and vid poker tournament time is 11. The advanced ddb strategy card is a pita- don’t much like it.

    Nelly took a trip from the Lou to the Neptunes was a big hint!

    They had a pretty distinctive sound at the time, notably the hard hitting main beat in stuff like Pass the Courvosier or Grindin by the Clipse.

    Vue bar was open, had a very strong “new” smell and not positive but think ddb .25 was 8:5, getting better at $1. I was thinking that’s worse than BHB which is worse than 4q so noped out. Can’t be positive. Was going to try to get all paytables everywhere onto a index card but didn’t.

    Btw first day tournament went poorly. Banged buttons on ddb for 20 min w 1500 to start, ended w no 4oaks and 1000. Guy next to me has more than 3k. Couldn’t see anyone that did worse but talked to one guy that said he did.

    Didn’t help that I was still awake at 6am and had to play at 11. Around 70% in and a little behind on pace went stupid royal chasing holding single high cards over low pairs. Fail.

    Broke my 4oak drought (not playing that much though more craps & bj) on nickel dream card. Lol. 3 play got 2/3 aces w kickers + aces no kicker for a hundred. I’m always losing interest and pulling out to hit a table.

    Oh also during late last night bj session asked and got a $20 pit comp at 777 good for 24 hr- used it for lunch today. Doubt we put in enough slot points in to ask a slot attendant.

    Your first day score wasn't much worse than mine and I still won $50. The winner of my tournament had a first day score around 1,000. Keep the faith. If the Vue bar does still have 8/5 BP progressive, then that is the game there. Anyone who wants to play DDB will find much better pickings next door at the 4 Q's.

    Yeah DDB is only 8/5 at both bars at the D. 4Q is better play for DDB.

    Does the 4Q bonus auto load without visiting the players club? Seemed like it might have
