    My Trip Report

    Fantastic trip, by all measures.

    My wife and I left Houston and hit our favorite "local" casino, the Coushatta, in Kinder, LA for Memorial Day weekend. We arrived early Saturday morning and checked into our room. We played a ton of craps, a bit of blackjack, and stuffed ourselves on the crawfish buffet. But all of that is trivial compared to...

    MY FIRST VP ROYAL FLUSH!

    We've been trying to hit it for a couple years now. My wife and I like to play JoB. While we didn't find any 9/6 machines, 9/5 machines were everywhere (including the bartop!) with 8/6 machines were very prevalent as well.

    After we each hit a straight flush within 20 minutes of each other, we decided to hunker down and go for it. We knew it was going to be the night. Four hours later, I hit it! I held the 10-Q-K of hearts against basic strategy as I was holding another K, and sure enough, the A-J of hearts showed up!

    This was a week ago and I'm still riding the high. We wound up with 1 royal, 2 straight flushes and 30 quads between us over about 8 total hours of play.

    We also earned enough points for a free fanny pack.

    Congrats on your first royal!

    And 9/5 JoB bartops are pretty hard to find nowdays. :( I'm gonna be sad when I go to Sam's Town Tunica next trip and see the 9/6 JoB at the bar has disappeared. :(

    Often in Vegas, Bonus is often a better bet if 9/6 JoB isn't available.
