    Something I always wondered...How does one take a large sum of cash from Las Vegas on an airplane without getting stopped and violated by TSA? I know you have to declare it if you are heading out of the country, but what about domestic flights?

    Thanks. I've played roulette a few times, so I know they have their own chips, but I wasn't aware of the variable denom concept.

    I feel like they stole those from the poker room...have no idea what they mean for roulette. "Man Walking" in poker terms often meaning "third man walking" which means the third man at a table has left and their seat can no longer be reserved for a break...is that right, @TRN?

    And wow, what a crazy run last night!?!?! Reading TRN's update, I assumed you tanked badly last night. :(

    I spending way too much of my working day reading this and waiting for it to upload. Fantastic read - great photographs, one of the most enjoyable TR I have read (and I have scrolled back to the archives reading old ones!). If you had not photographed everything (and met up with other real VMBers), I would have thought it was someone using a lot of "poetic license" to spice up a report but your genuineness rings through clearly.

    Great TR, I think I speak for everyone when I ask - why not stay for a few days longer?

    It was sad to read you lost over 50K in three hours at roulette in Cosmopolitan. Luck is changeable. One of the points of this report seems to be, what good is money if it is no fun?, but winning is more fun than losing. I hope you have a turn around and good hits in whatever game to make the trip profitable. You have given us readers a lot of pleasure with your report and photos and I am sure most or all of us want you to take that plane when you leave Las Vegas happy with your trip as a whole. Best wishes.

    I feel like I shouldn't do any of these Trip Reports anymore after scrolling through this one.

    If you can reunite the old Glitter Gulch crew up into that Cosmo room, this will complete the greatest report I've ever read on here.

    That and your seat back to Dulles is 34B or something.

    Terrific stuff, my man.

    If you read the beginning of his TR he had dealings with TSA.

    I kind of lost track of your baseball bet. The Astros lost on Tuesday. Not sure how baseball bets work. Did you lose?

    Answering a few questions to save our author some time.........

    My last few times flying out of Vegas TSA has taken a copy of my ID and boarding pass and recorded how much cash I had and asked where I got it. I'm wondering if this is related to the marijuana legalization.

    He bought the lammers from Gamblers Book Club earlier in the trip. They're just random casino markers of his, most are not related to roulette.

    Yes, the baseball bet was a loser. It was a single game bet, not for the entire series. And for those asking earlier, if you don't list pitchers, you have action but not at the original line. So if Kershaw didn't start, you'd still have action on the Astros but at a much different price.

    Would love to see some pics from the private high limit table games casino on the top floor at Cosmo if you can get yourself up there.

    Yeah, that was the first thing I noticed when I saw this set of VP photos. $125 and hand and without your card in! With your playing you might have earned a nice $1,000+ in free play but I know that's not really a focus of yours. It was hilarious though to see the constant flashing of "earn $5" in free play. LOL.

    I am very curious and I know I will risk sounding silly by asking, but during all these adventures, what kind of shoes did you wear?:haha: I can't guess. Some brands come to mind, Nike, Mephisto, Cole Haan? I can bet it is something else, but what? To me, shoes are more important than cars :woohoo:.
