    Okay, first $100 down. But with the progressives here I feel like I have to keep chasing this.

    Notwithstanding the tiny bit of sleep I had on the plane, I’ve now been up for just over 25 hours… :eek:

    “When the thumb goes up, you know it’s just like that!” @AlPal

    (for those who know what this means, it is NOT said in support of the person for whom that saying is known… for obvious reasons to those who know :eek: just an inside joke with AlPal and I :) )

    How many players at the Vue when the progressive was $50+? I've been in that early morning position when I was the only one chasing and feeding the progressives, but couldn't leave a quad that juicy...

    Down by $89.57… total of $4,760 coin in. I’ll take it.

    Betting $10 on the “numbahs” (Brettski reference… IYKYK), then gyros and then bedtime :yawn:

    As Brettski would say: “Time for the reveal, absolutely buried”

    Re: noticing details at the airport... such as the water bottle filler.

    I'll be honest. I've been at Harry Reid sooooooooooooooooooooo many times, I still couldn't tell you the details of that place. As soon as I'm off the plane, it is time to haul ass to the Strip!!! I only notice these kind of details when I am leaving Las Vegas, lol

    Damn.... impressed with your start. I tried to call an audible to see if I could change my Southwest flight to TOMORROW instead of Friday (with a comped room at Paris, Versailles room). It just simply isn't happening... not enough points!
