    We made it! A couple minutes late and a bumpy flight at the end, but so happy to be here!

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes. 45 minutes after touchdown we're at Aria and checked in. Took Uber for $12.58, breezed through the gold/platinum check in line. No upgrade, but I'm not complaining.

    Now off to buy some room booze and supplies, then convert some freeplay.

    Aria no longer requires you to log into wi-fi, which is nice.

    Are you a platinum member? I am and I was just at bellagio checking in (past Sunday) and they didn't offer me automatic upgrade I heard it's more based on your "previous action/play" to receive upgrade.... I swear this freaking MGM changes their policy everyday....

    Always a bumpy ride into McCarron. Glad you're there and getting after it. Good luck!

    Looks like Aria has started mixing in some 6:5 with the 3:2 BJ. Previously they were in separate pits. Right now the 6:5 shoe is $25. 3:2 is $50-$100 on the main floor.

    Blah. 1 in 23.9. But 62% is actually decent for no multipliers. [emoji15]

    Hopefully he was betting a lot!

    Nickels and then quarters. I was betting quarters and dollars and didn't get anything better than a flush. Oh well!

    For those interested in the new MGM mobile slot tournaments, looks like they only have one running. I thought they were supposed to have several a day? Not going to wait until September to see if I win!
