    My Trip Report

    Crapapalooza trip starts tomorrow Friday August 2, flying out of MCO just notified via E-mail I received my free upgrade to first class for the first leg of my trip with high probability for the same for the final leg. I'm heading out as an invited player for the Paris craps tournament with a comped room at Paris. Host has me in the system for a suite upgrade (Diamond) sure hope that materializes. This is my first craps tournament and I will have to reprogram my normal play style to a more bold style. More reports to follow.

    Have a great time! Good luck in the craps tournament! If possible please give a report as to how the tournament went. Rules, optimal strategy, etc. I figure the strategy in craps tournaments are a bit different.

    Good luck!!

    I made it to MCO glad I left early, rainy drive. I got the first class upgrade for both segments‼️
    Security lines looked long, I have TSA precheck, less than 10 min from the curb to the tram.
    Decided to hang out in the Delta Sky Club, let the party begin. Not due to arrive in Vegas until 11:30 pm Vegas time. I’m sure to muster up the energy upon arrival and check in to play for a while.

    I got registered this morning at 9 am my round will be Sunday morning. Set up is as follows:
    20 rolls
    $1000 of starting play chips
    12 players at a table
    Top 2 players move forward to the next round
    I watched a couple of today’s rounds, lots of conservative betting until last few rolls.

    So I didn’t make it out of the first round. Most winners were advancing with a total of $2000 + - per the director. My table had several of us at $2500+ with 1 roll left. Top score had $4300 or so, it was a mad house as we went around the table placing our last bets. I chose the insane any 7 bet for $2000 hoping to hit a home run for $10,000 pay 5-1 but it came up 8. I didn’t hang around for the next rounds, made my way over to MGM and hit an awesome table twice today. Super heater rolls catching the small/y’all/ all a couple times.
    Everyone was real upbeat about the tournament taking place and hopefully they will have more.
