    Driving down the road about to turn left onto I-75 this morning....out from behind a truck getting off of 75 comes a motorcycle running his red light. Skids directly into my lane and stops, rolling right at me.

    Luckily I was paying attention. Narrowly missed him....

    And now I’ve used up all of my luck for the week.

    $20 Uber from airport. Little bit of traffic on I-15 but not too bad. Was going to take WAX but was at El Cortez by the time I would have been on the bus.

    All checked into my Comped Tower Suite. Safe needs to be reset but I’ll take care of that after my Fremont coupon sprint!

    Also in a sad turn of events, Simmons (Vegas virgin) missed his flight from Charlotte!

    He forgot to dry his clothes last night, thought he could still make it this morning....but nope.

    Wade and Waldo arrive around 11:30am. Simmons now at 5:30pm. He started drinking at CLT pretty quickly to cover up the depression.

    Talk about your ultimate up and down start.

    Made $70 at Plaza going 2/2 on matchplays. Went 1/2 at Golden Gate for $25. Binion’s made $10 off free play. Four Queens I hit trip Aces for $15 off free play.

    Then the D. The GD D. The GD.

    Went to players club and they couldn’t get my card going right, so they gave me $10 matchplay for my trouble. Went to roulette and won both $25 and the $10 matchplays. Wooooo!!!!! +$240 on coupon run alre.......

    Where is my LVA coupon book?!?!?

    From the cashier cage to the door outside I dropped it!!! I backtracked and it’s gone. Most of the coupons I was going to use from it are done now anyway. So not too bad a loss. Missing out on 2 $10 FP, 2 $10 MP, and a play $10 get $10.

    So other than losing the book, off to a great start. Increases my bankroll by almost 20% in 2 hours!

    Waldo has landed, Wade any minute. Going to eat at Binion’s via the Slots App and get going. Guess I’ll start drinking after lunch!

    Ok update time.

    Waldo and Wade arrived so we all took bus from Fremont to Jerry’s Nugget. That was a quick stop but while I played for a second and ordered another Coors Light, hit my first quad of the trip at the bar.

    Then we took bus to Silver Nugget. We stayed here for a while. Wade and Waldo ate that insane deal for a late lunch. We had to wait around until 4pm for table games to open to use matchplay. I earned 500 points drinking at the bar which means I won $5 free cash. However I lost $5 in the process. Break even baby!

    Waited for the 110 bus for half an hour to go to Lucky Club and said F this....ubered back to El Cortez.

    Wade taking a short catnap. Waldo starting his downtown coupon run....

    Earl posted up at Bar at El Cortez.

    The goal is 20 Quads this week! Let’s get #2 NOW!

    [​IMG]

    As always, cheers to ANYONE that enjoys this report. I love doing it mainly to go back and read it years later. I wish I did this every trip I took. Those that don’t write a live report....DO IT! For you AND for US!!!
