    My Trip Report

    Ok, I'm caving.

    After failing to complete my last post-trip report as details got blurry before the write up was finished, I am going to attempt to do this one semi-live. How loyally I update remains to be seen.

    What's in store:

    • 1 Round at TPC Las Vegas on Wed afternoon (99 dollar rate)
    • 1 Round at Royal Links on Thu afternoon (85 dollar rate prepaid months ago)
    • 1-2 more rounds TBD (Boulder Creek/City likely)
    • An action packed !! 5 draws of curling action, including both sets of semis and the final.
    • Ellis Island steak special porn!
    • Coupons! 1 ACG and LVA each for breathless chiseling action!
    • 1 High end steakhouse dinner. Place TBD (waiting on Cut of the Week menu from Charlie Palmer)
    • OPIUM at Cosmo
    • Ray Romano and David Spade
    • 5 nights at Bally's in new Resort Room (COMP, with resort fee and parking and when did my comp become $50 a night)
    • 2 nights at Cal (actual COMP ... by some weird website mixup since fixed)
    • Triple George dinner

    TBD:
    • Steakhouse choice
    • Up in $75 in MyKonami free play if they extend reward dates
    • In N Out
    • Fogo De Chao
    • Rollin' Smoke
    • Tacos El Gordo

    Gambling run-down:

    Bringing a fairly tight budget for this one, and golf and curling will eat a lot of the itinerary, so this is somewhat TBD.

    There will be poker, but could be little compared to past trips (likely 1-2 NL), depending on time and mileage out of bankroll. After a brutal December trip, and with little time allocated, I'm not dedicating a lot of the budget to buy-ins.

    There will be blackjack, ranging from potential $1 at Hooters sillyness to $25 ish near the end of the trip.

    VP will mainly be playing out freeplay and coupons early in the week. Could be more downtown VP to close trip depending on how the budget holds up.

    Stay tuned to the pre trip thread for always exciting packing photos.

    Now taking Netflix download recommendations for in flight entertainment. At the moment, its gonna be Season 2 of Hap and Leonard, and most of season 2 of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

    Packing item #1 arrived from Loudmouth golf.

    Nice patriotic golf shorts to cheer on Gushue’s team canada.

    It was a tough call. Player 2 opted for pants which will be far more comfortable in the arena. I opted for something im more likely to be comfortable golfing in during and after the trip.

    Cool can't wait, especially to hear tales of getting river-donked at the 1/2 tables. Ballys is known for it :)

    If thats what sells i should have reported my december trip, when i put in 30+ hours of donkish misery.

    Sadly in that case the marathon sessions and poor note discipline killed much chance for hand discussion.

    Hopefully this time way less play, way better notes.

    Also, no guarantee play will be at Bally's. We'll be at Orleans for curling events and player 2 wants to play some Omaha there. Won't do that, but could end up playing there.

    And of course, every proper chiseler needs to go to vegas with their coupon books

    The poker tables are drooling in anticipation of your arrival!

    Edit: yes I meant the tables themselves are literally drooling, not the players.

    Good luck on the gambling, golfing, curling, chiseling etc. on the return flight if you haven’t seen Shimmer Lake on Netflix- original movie, I highly recommended it.
