    looks like Gaggles is spending most of his time at the "card table":

    Okay here is the first update on a very succesful trip so far.

    I arrived and as the cabbie asked if you want the quick expensive way or the longer cheaper way I informed him I had a $20 for the fare either way. He chose no tunnel and the meter was 12.90 to my hotel + the 1.90 airport fee. Funny how this seems to get them to find a shorter quicker way. I suggest you all try it.

    It all began with my usal bank of .25 progressives at Bally's. One premium set of quads and two regular quads almost before the $100 went in. Then it was off to Sully's because I couldn't get drink in my section. Well no matter what Macker says Sully's bar tops are tighter than (insert inapropriate comment) and I gave back all my previous quads. But I did have my glow going by the time it was done.

    Name on 1/2 list and sauntered to craps tables. $10 table was all about 7 out! Booooo. They call my name and add on to my craps chips and manage to lose all $325 I had left. WTF!

    Worst hand...3/4 diamonds. Six way action for a 7 raise. I'm in position. Flop is 2d/5d Jh. Bing Bing. I like this and I am thinking $600 high hand jackpot. Well donkey goes all in with no pair. I have about $70 so I call as the pot is now $145 with his money in. I get air. Any 3/4/diamond/Ace/6 and I win. That's almost the whole deck!!!!!!

    So how is this a good trip do you ask........well.....

    I am drunk and frustrated. I was up aout $150 a few hours ago now I am down $500. So I do the only logical thing there is to do. I roll up to the high limit room and play a $1 DDBP machine.I know $1 is not high limit but there are 2 machines at that prce in there and I ws feeling like a hot shot!

    Well gues what Beejay you goda*mn chaser....I hold AA and what lines up....AA4. $2000 thank you call attendant. Now the bad. They only count out $1400 and the tax man gets the rest. For now. Someone tell me how a Canadian boy gets the form to get my money back please.

    Then a rain of quads begins at the $1 level that is pretty darn swell. 4-5 actually but they are paying $250 each so that is nice.

    But here is the thing.....I played for hours at .25, .50 and $1 and when I woke up this morning I was only up about $400. Where did the damn money go? How do I hit for literally $3250+ on machines and be up $400. Damn you Beejay! I blame you.

    I stumbled back to the room and I am a mess. In fact I am so drunk I look at the pay TV and contemplated an adult selection for $21.99 for 24 hours of porn. Yes people. I have a new Vegas term for being drunk. I call it "24 Hour Porn Drunk"

    I was 24 Hour Porn Drunk. In the end I thought "Does anyone really need 24 hours of porn?" I might go blind! As it turns out I am passed out and awoke to check the TV and no porn was ordered.....but the trip aint over yet.

    I intend to test the limits again tonight.

    I had the Harrahs buffet for dinner which was just okay but it is the only thing I have eaten since I have landed.

    I waddles to the Royale for some full pay DDBP from my usual bank of machines and got another 5 quads but no premiums. That is at least 12 for the trip. Only playng at quarters though.

    So this is Gaggles with a live update rom the Paris Diamond Lounge. I am off to the Bellagio to chase some progressives from my usual .50 bank and hit the poker room as I have not played there in a very long time.

    Now I am signing off as it is 8 pm in Vegas and I haven't had a drink yet.

    See you tomorrow. And yes Bejay I will send you a pic of those lovely aces!

    24 Hour Porn Drunk coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    after getting down quick, being that drunk, coming home ahead, I call that a win!

    I'll take the blame though, just like I took the blame from the girls for the effects of the Grand Lux sloppy joe. Of course they made the mistake of eating it PRE-DRINKING. total rookie mistake.

    I must say their text updates are coming more often but yours was quite detailed and of excellent overall quality. Might I mention that if you hadn't been chasing, you'd be down another $2K, and don''t forget you've got a $600 tax check coming at year end to finance some sort of foolishness.

    Wouldn't the g/f be flabbergasted if the only thing you bring back from this solo trip isn't a few new card tricks for poker but a few new tricks in the boudoir ?? :evillaugh:evillaugh You'll be grounded for life, never to leave Lethbridge again :D :poke:

    they may not consititute a live trip report, but they were some pretty outstanding updates. "24 hour porn ordering drunk" outstanding. Remember, more poker for that solo trip!! Good luck, chaser.

    I pay annually for my porn and am very happy with the product for the price, so I can't relate to making a 24 hr decision about porn. It is something that should, and must always be avaialable, at the highest levels.

    Well, I do tend to agree with you on the always available aspect, that's what the resort fees are for now, in that free wifi, ensures access with no $15.99 internet fee drunk decisions.

    A few have tried but all have failed, bar one. Has anyone, other than BeeeJay, promised a 'live' Vegas report and actually delivered? :peace:

    I apologize for this weak attempt at a Live TR. I will have better stuff next time. US roaming charges of about $5 a minute also cut into the desire to make things live. I am also waiting for a new Iphone battery. In addition my work and home pc's are broken leaving me just with this Iphone which has to be plugged in to work.

    Nonetheless, I had two more interesting days and big swings to tell you about. Hopefully my new computer will arrive this morning as scheduled. I can type on this tiny keyboard no more!

    Looking forward to the post-trip report.:wink

    Setting aside the technical issues, I know I could never manage a live report. There are just better things to do in Vegas. Producing the TR is post-trip therapy.
