    Damn I should have told you to play the 7/5 Super Aces (98.85%). Then missing the kicker wouldn't matter. :( They are on select bartop units. Strategy is similar to DDB. @jpw711 got the Aces there once.

    Re: Drink Policy
    It's been that way for years, I think they are just concerned you initially buy in for $20. They should give your wife another drink even though she won't feed another $20 in.

    Thanks for the heads up. We’re still playing and she’s way up after some good 4OAK hits. I’m down a bit but we’re still up on the day overall and plenty of drinks in. Bartender is great.

    Yeah, as long as you are continuously playing, they will get your drunk on the original $20 buy in.

    Wife still up a lot. Me down a lot but she’s up more than enough to make up for it. She’s winning while I’m getting drunk. Haven’t had to move in hours. I love Las Vegas.

    Don’t judge me. Wanted another drink and couldn’t decide so bartender made me this. No idea what it is. She’s awesome though. It’s gonna be good.

    Look at it this way, somebody has got to carry the flag for those who can’t be there, you are one of the designated flag bearers. Aside from the early am alarm wakeup, sounds like y’all are having the getaway you needed. Continued luck and fun.

    I’m stopping gambling for the moment based on my luck today but wife is still playing and winning. Works for me since she’s not drinking so she’s getting me drinks. It’s a win win.

    Didn’t say. Just saw me trying to figure out what to order and said, “Want me to just make you something?” Any time a bartender says that, I say yes. It’s like a rule or something.

    Too late! Already left and her shift was over. Sorry. Dark straight hair. Maybe 40ish. Best I can do in my current state.

    Really hate to say it but there’s nothing about this new Sahara that makes me want to come back. And that’s from someone who loves the old Sahara, my wife won money here, and I want to like this property. Gonna take something major to bring me back from center Strip stays.

    Whatever this 805 beer is at Bellagio sports book bar, it’s not great. And neither are the winning hands on DDB.

    Wife continues to win while I continue to get drunk (i.e. win). I like this trip.

    Still sitting at Bellagio sports book bar. Here’s some VP porn for you. Roughly even between the two of us since sitting down.
