    Really enjoying your TR. You do Vegas almost the same as me, poker, vp, a little blackjack, eat. rinse & repeat.

    Slid back into the second hundred, got back to the 100 mark, and took it as a sign.

    really rather amazing looking back. Aside from one poker session and the aria fp this trip has been one long beating.

    Seriously, if you run a vegas show put something on the ticket somewhere that says when the show starts or at least within 5 minutes.

    Crazy Girls was correctly priced at free. Its awkward when the girl emcee is trying to rile up the audience by offering to take off her clothes , thinks she is encountering shyness and is in fact facing at best general indifference.

    After that debacle I decided that another small trip win or not was a fairly meaningless target line, and that my live game vs machine balance had been off this trip. I needed compatriots to suffer with me. So i put the shrinking win on the line at 15 dollar bj at PH, encountering two slow slow dealers, one who wore earplugs because of music meaning you had to shout any verbal request.

    And it looked for awhile like i was in for one more shellacking. Then i rebounded and was approaching a respectable win. But the shoe turned right at the end, and i escaped up 20 bucks before they raised the min on us.

    Also got a darn good drink on this evening, and late checkout denied, so tomorrow could be interesting.

    I saw that show recently. Just horrible, I walked out half way through, as did some other people. Just a waste of time, and if you actually paid for it, it's highway robbery. You're better off just looking at the statue of their butts in the casino. Great report by the way, thanks for sharing it with us.

    Checked out of Wynn. Walked to peppermill for breakfast.

    Groups ahead of me getting quoted a one hour wait, but low and behold they have one seat at the “bar”, and im right in.

    Still working on a plan for the day

    Sadly, the eggs were overcooked. Place is a madhouse so i just went with it. Hollandaise meh too.

    Guess i should have ordered pancakes the size of hubcaps instead. I just figured it would take 4 bites before the enjoyment of that turned to bloat and self loathing.

    Went to my happy place, golden gate for blackjack.

    Was up as high as 90 but stayed a shoe too long and ended up 30.

    And thats a wrap for gambling this trip

    So the report is more or less done for you boring people who just care about gambling and dining and debauchery.
    But for those of you following for the air travel, we are just getting started.

    Due to aeroplan options having been limited , we are connecting through LAX and Pearson before getting home. So lets see if we can bring that lounge count for the trip up to 5 (lax is a question mark)

    I enjoyed all of your report. Sux about the final poker session but you knew when to shut it down and I’m glad you made it downtown. “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”

    Very curious about the “darn good drink” you had! Did they really not grandfather you in for blackjack?! Boo! Anyway, thanks for the write up!

    It was weird drunk wording , meaning that for a fairly low drinking trip id had several and was fairly buzzed.

    Wynn didn't even check my play on the checkout request, just said they were at capacity and not allowing late checkouts. But the blackjack was at PH anyway . Wynn was just three or so hours of poker.

    i didnt see much point giving them more as i have one more wynn slots comp stay to do so i would have to live up to any average i try to set. Plus my play is tiny for Wynn

    In the maple leaf lounge now at Lax.

    Not much of a lounge. Salads, snacks. They do have glenlivet but im not mich of a scotch guy.

    So drinking bud and eating edamame and tortillas. In theory i could also get into the alaska lounge but there is a waitlist for priority pass.
