    My Trip Report

    Standing in line waiting to board out of Columbus. Will try my best to do some live posting but have failed miserably in the past. This trip is for my 53rd birthday and a weekend of football. There are six in our group. Four flying out of Cbus, one driving from Utah and another from Arizona. Hope to post a couple pics of me holding massive amounts of chips

    Flights were gravy, empty middle seat on both legs. Don’t think I’ll ever do another Vegas flight that isn’t nonstop though. Lyft driver took a route I’ve never taken before. Check in with kiosk was a breeze. We dropped our bags, hit the vp machine and my son hit 4oak aces on ddb with the kicker. Great start to the trip

    Ended up on the plus side by a couple hundred for night one. Any time I’m up, whether it’s $1 or $1000, I’m happy. We just stayed at Harrahs last night playing Pai Gow. Had a fun table with the exception of “the groom” who was a giant pain. Dude was smashed and was irritating everyone. I’m up early so I’ll grab something quick to eat and place some bets in the sports book. Hope to have some pics later. Go Bucks!

    Great start to the trip! Good luck on football this weekend. Are you betting on the Buckeyes even with that big spread?

    I’ve got two trains of thought going with Ohio St. First, Schiano used to be Rutgers HC so maybe some extra motivation. Add to that the fact that they gave up 31 to Oregon St and I see a motivated defense. The other thought is they aren’t that good defensively. I think the offense will be explosive all year. I’m not placing a huge bet but I will take Ohio St giving the points cause I’m a homer

    I'm with you. The OSU defense has something to prove this week, and the offense will roll. Go Bucks! (I lived in Akron area for 26 years so I'm still a quasi homer).

    Added Cincinnati/Miami under 48 and So Miss/UL Monroe over 68

    Had a soso day. No big wins or loses. Played some Pai Gow over at Mirage and dealer didn’t speak while pounding me. That’s so hard for me to take. I probably won’t stop back in this trip.

    Still hoping for some photos of big wins

    Good bet, it's been pouring rain and wind all day in Cincy and 7-0 Cincy at half.

    After day 2, I’m pretty much even. A big bet on Cincinnati vs Miami game was a life saver.

    Took the tram to south end last night. Played a little at MGM and NYNY with no results. I wanted to see what was going on with changes at Monte Carlo/Park MGM. Played some Pai Gow. Was very excited because dealer was using dice. Figured now it would be random for sure. The dealer, who literally said zero words the entire time I was sitting there, got three full houses in a row with trip 10’s being the high hand.

    Today we got to the sport book early to put in my nfl picks. At halftime I played a little more Ultimate X and hit these two hands within 5 spins of each other
