    Hey everyone,

    Feel like I know most of you already! I have been reading for years and enjoying all of it and have probably met some of you already in my Vegas travels! 20+ trips since I was 22, 41 now. Majority have been annual SB family and friends trips, also have done a couple bachelor parties, including mine own, and a few trips with the wife alone, where I proposed in an MGM hallway outside our room (insert jokes here) So I live vicariously through all of you and the boards when not in Vegas, or at my every 2 months or so Foxwoods trip. Boston guy here. Hoping I'll post some old trip reports after piecing some of them together...like our 1st 2 years there for the SB...$50 bucks for warm beer and hot dogs at a theatre theater style room upstairs at the old, majestic, still miss it, O'Sheas!

    Mainly VP player and some slots since 2015 when I got into it after losing after table games forever! Have had great luck at Foxwoods and finished up over 6k total and 5k in VP last year. Vegas, that fickle woman, I got the same stories as everybody! 2 or 3 big winning trips, including last SB when I hit my 1st 4k royal, a couple decent trips, and then a whole lot of losing ones!

    Nice to meet everyone. Good luck to everyone out there now!

    Matt

    Welcome to VMB @Matt! Looking forward to your trip reports past and future!

    I’m from Mass also and FW is my casino of choice as well! I play poker (and hope they open the room again soon) and also play VP! In fact, it sounds like you won my money over the past couple years! :D

    Welcome to the board Matt.
    In the hallway at MGM? Please tell me that wasn’t the plan? Well, it worked and that’s what counts :)

    Glad you joined. Like @breanna61 , you’ve ‘peeked’ my curiosity on how that hallway proposal came about.:D
