    12hrs of play from Sunday to Sunday by 10am. Torueney at noon. If you get 17hrs you get extra chips.

    hit 17 last night.....and had been in town for 26hrs if I did my math right.

    Freeroll was a bust. Got it in good, suck out on the river, on to cash games and booze.
    Flamingo is struggling. The check in line wraps around 5 times and extends down the hallway past the damn gift shop. Haven’t seen diamond registration open yet. Haven’t seen the cafe to go / pizza place open yet. Food court outside of Johnny rockets have single employees manning the place.
    Word is the poker room let 14 dealers go....yet are too short handed to be open 7 days a week.
    Sad to see my favorite place like this.

    That truly is sad to hear. The Flamingo will always be special to me. Way back in 1986 we stayed there on the first real vacation we took as a young married couple. Man oh man I felt like Johnny Bigshot. Oh the memories.

    Don’t do much gambling outside of poker but dabble with the slots. Some really creepy Asian baby slot this morning just kept going on the bonus. D6A53249-DD8D-453E-8F28-737DC731EF78.jpeg

    Not looking forward to checking in there on Sunday. Am I better off kiosking it and go down to keys line if we don't like our random room? :hmmm:

    Good stuff so far!

    I got in at 11ish pm Friday. 10 minutes. But every time I go up to pee today I look at the line and it’s further than the eye can see (11am-6pm and counting....)

    Dinner at Bugsy and Meyers. 3rd visit. Better service. Hate that it’s partially open to the casino- or maybe hate too many loud ******y people are in Vegas.
    in theory going to finally go on the high roller and then.....poker and booze.

    Damn. When I first started playing 1/2, I won at the Flamingo. I have a soft spot in my heart for the room and especially the dealers. And those lines…!

    So low roller gambling but spending money elsewhere. Booked two nights at the cosmo for the bday. Paid upgrade to wraparound suite with fountain view. Holy shit. Insane.

    had a massage at flamingo this morning and feel amazing. Hit four of a kind at poker and lost it back.

    early dinner at China poblano then gonna slot around cosmo and head back for evening poker at flamingo. Been a tradition to play there as the clock rolls over at midnight to my bday. Had an ungodly heater that one time and been a yearly tradition since sans 2020.

    tonight could get more drunken than usual….
