    Congratulations on the win. Too bad you gave over half of it back at the end but that's gambling! You still beat the odds by a lot. How long is your March trip going to be?

    :nworthy: Thank. You for taking the time to share your trip with us. I love Vegas and love reading all adventures. Glad you didn't lose your zest for Vegas so we can look forward to another trip.

    I am going in a few "sleeps" and can't wait. Started with Roulette in casinos, but now mainly play poker. Find my money last longer and I can be there longer then. But am sure if I see my old number of 16,17 I will be there in a flash.

    Good trip home, and best of luck. :beer:

    Thanks for such a great report and the frequent updates. Final totals still read well, even after the Palazzo horror.

    Thanks for the reporting Nate.

    I know it is a lot of work doing the live updates.

    The end result was fantastic. I think it was a dream trip, a nearly "perfect" trip if there is such a thing. You ended up with an enormous win, even by your standards. You set yourself up for future trips with huge play given to most of your chosen properties. You learned a few things that will help you in the future, to be wary of Cosmo, and to keep one foot on the ground with roulette.

    It is pretty nice to experience all that and GET PAID HUGE!!!!

    Congratulations!!!!

    Great TR Nate! I may have missed it, but have you settled on which dates you will be there next month? Looks like I will be there twice next month. Hope to run into you again

    Nate, you are a gentleman and a scholar. thank you for your time and continued peeks in to a life and playing level that most of us on here can only dream about (at least until my 6 numbers hit, lol). Enjoy the Land of the Mouse, and travel safely. I think I'll be doing a new countdown clock, only instead of for my trip, it will be for your next one.

    Thank you so much, Nate!

    I've enjoyed your trip report very much, just as if I was there myself, playing the games.
    Very exciting and entertaining. You are living my dream!! (except the wife & kids :nono:)

    I hope you and your family will have a great time at Disney!
    And I'm looking forward to your next TR!

    :wave:


    PS: I would love to continue the discussion about roulette and betting strategies, etc.

    Thanks for the trip report Nate.
    It really was fun to go along with you on this ride. The time you took out of your trip to report daily if not twice daily was awesome...
    All the questions , answers and feedback to all and from all made this trip report EPIC for all.
    Can't wit til you return..... going back now and reading all your old TR's....

    You are in a league of your own, Nate! I can't think of anyone else who writes about their experiences at your level, and takes the time to answer questions and not judge nor look down upon others. Arrogance is not in your vocabulary. Hats off to you!! Anxious to read future reports.

    Thanks so much for taking us along on this journey with you Nate, I've had such a great time following your trip! I really appreciate your willingness to discuss details on your play, comps etc, especially since I know other posters who've done detailed reports have had issues with creepers kind of stalking them, and I'd guess you've had some of that too.

    Can't wait for your next TR!! Enjoy Disneyland!!
     
    FINALLY Back to Vegas

    Nate

    All I can say is thank you. I was way behind reading the start of the thread and then you got me hooked and I got up to date. It's been one hell of a roller coaster ride for you, but thank you for all the little insights, the figures, the details, the emotions and the drama. I'll be looking out for you in mid March when I visit and I wish the very best of luck on that next trip.

    You have kept us all entertained for weeks and this is the best thing I have read for ages. I will never look at 17 and 20 the same way on a roulette table again and will always think when it hits that Nate may have had a 'complete' on that.

    Final thanks to Beejay - you are soooooo funny!

    Well done! One of the best reports ever posted on this site (or anywhere).

    You are true gentleman, Nate. A family man, a businessman, a good friend and an entertaining writer.

    Enjoy Disneyland. Hope to see you next month in Vegas for March Madness!
