    My Trip Report

    Just got back from my most recent trip to Vegas with the gf. We stayed at MSS and the majority of our play was VP at the Boar's Head Bar with some slots mixed in at MSS and The Cal. Overall it was quite a profitable trip with a handful of premium hands/jackpots, not to mention some delicious crab legs and baby back ribs. Nothing beats coming home with more money than you arrived with, especially after expenses!

    Full detailed writeup broken down by day with all the pics can be seen at the following link:

    Enjoy! :)

    Thanks a lot. I really couldn't believe the swing on Sunday in terms of such a bad dry spell with zero 4OAKs to where I felt like every 5 or 10 minutes I was hitting one

    In slide 59, did you consider holding the three Aces as well as the deuce? I don't know if that is a wise play or not, in giving up one chance at the fourth Ace but keeping a 2000 credit win alive.

    Yeah they replaced some machines last month I believe. It definitely was a fun change of pace...Pretty sure it had 3, 5, and 10-play. The dealt quad 3's w/ a kicker was probably the highlight of the trip aside from the royal just because it's so cool seeing all the hands win like that.

    I always only hold the 3 Aces even if I'm dealt the kicker and I think that's the proper play. Honestly, I think I've only hit quad aces once or twice when I held all 3 aces so I personally really need that extra draw to get it, then I'll worry about the kicker later. Luckily, there's lots of outs in terms of getting the kicker again. If quad Aces weren't a premium hand by themselves it would probably be wise to hold the kicker. This trip alone I probably was dealt 3 Aces about 15 times and only hit the 4th ace on one of em. It definitely ended my bad streak of holding 3 Aces and not drawing the 4th...maybe 60 hands worth over the past few trips which is insane. I've seen people hold the kicker though so it isn't that uncommon.

    Woo! Multi-play next month while pounding High Roller/Double Downs. Can't beat that.

    As long as you have a double down for me I'll allow it :)

    Glad you had such a great trip. Nothing better than coming home with your bankroll after all costs are covered!

    You hold kickers there at triple double bonus. Not at double double bonus.

    Not necessarily a beer snob, do love craft, but the double down at MSS blows 4qs hefe out of the water.

    Side note, STP or other variants on those bartops or just multiplay?

    I never play those so I can't give you a 100% answer but I want to say I think I saw some other variants...someone else more familiar can chime in if I'm wrong.

    My only beef with MSS and their hefe is they are CONSTANTLY running out of it...I only got to enjoy it on Saturday as it was out the rest of the time at the BHB. 777 still had it so I could still get my fix, or you can ask for the high roller with a splash of orange which helps a little if you're craving it but still not the same.

    Not a deal breaker. My ass will still be glued to a Boar's Head chair for hours on end.

    Thanks for the info, you've improved my method of play by mentioning that.

    This is my first time using blogspot...anyone know how to rotate pictures? I've googled it and the easy rotate button everyone says to do no longer exists. All the pics are straight in the file but for whatever reason a handful of them turn 90ยบ once they're uploaded.

    Nice TR! Congrats on all the great hits, especially the Royal and the dealt 3's with a kicker x5. Great stuff!
    Do you know if the multi play games were for Bonus Poker too or just DDB?

    For sure it's got both. L was playing 5-play Bonus Poker and you can verify with some of those slanted pics
