    Finished my run at Vue Bar. Played for 3:40 and put through $6,340 coin in. Averaged about 1,385 hands per hour. I think I play fast but for a while there was someone playing next too me who was faster. Maybe the beer was slowing me down. Made a profit of a whopping $2 for the session. Hit a lot of quads but couldn’t pull the royal. I’ll post the pics once I get a chance. Right now having my gourmet dinner, Coney Island gyro, and getting packed. Lyft is scheduled for 7:00pm.

    Pic dump from last session. At the airport now. I think the net loss is about $250. Converted some points to free play at the D and did well on the conversion.

    Thanx for taking us along Scott
    Hopefully next year spring we can meet again and maybe do another steak special at Ellis island together with Stu and Eliza like a few years ago ( ohh that s right Stu bailed out after the drinks at the Cromwell :thumbsup: )
    Anyway great TR mand and congrats on the Royal
    And for me 250$ loss for the whole trip is not a real loss( see it as paying for your rooms)
    Safe travels home:thumbsup:

    Sounds like your gambling went much better than mine. I have 2 days to turn it around. It was great to meet you. Safe travels home!

    Got home about a half hour ago. Family is still asleep. The red eye is nice since I don’t waste a day traveling. I’ll probably pay for it tomorrow. Flight was uneventful as far as I know, slept the whole way, thanks melatonin. Since I’m home now I need to contemplate my next trip. I know I’m going end of Feb but wondering if I can sneak in another trip.

    Funny story I meant to mention. I had planned to have a room at 4Qs on Fri and Sat night to store my stuff after I checked out of The D in Sat morning. But I was comfortable so I had my host extend my stay a night. I called 4Qs on Friday morning to cancel my reservation and they had nothing in the system for me. I want back through all my notes as I was sure I booked the room. Nope, couldn’t find anything. Glad I added the night at The D. Would have sucked to live out of the Bell Desk for 8 hrs.

    As I was walking out of the El Co on Thursday night a group of folks where walking in. I heard one say “ Wow, this place is fancy”. Not sure where else they have been to think El Co is fancy but glad they liked it.

    If not for BJ this would have been a break even trip but it’s ok. All the match plays are +EV so hopefully I win them next trip. I did almost exactly $30,000 coin in at The D. That should make my host happy except I probably showed a win. She did come say hi to me on Thursday and mentioned they are planning a VP tournament for February. They are still trying the determine the format but hopefully it corresponds with my travel plans.

    Enough iPad typing. Time to get back to reality and the post Vegas blues. Maybe a little extra baileys in my coffee this morning. Till the next time. Also, thanks to everyone else that does a TR. I follow most and really enjoy them.

    I’ve been out around NFR before. Quite a group of cowboys and cowgirls. Maybe I’ll check the dates.
