    Hi-jacking just a bit... had a decent [email protected] the El-Co crap table, and even made afew hundred at UTH, playing at Plaza & Golden Gate. Blackjack was a net loser for me...go figure.
    Still, a good first day for gambling.
    See you in afew hours, Mike.

    Cool story about Kareem. You may run into more NBA players / coaches since the summer games are taking place now. Better luck Mike. Today is a new day

    Oh my gosh getting to chat with Lew Alcindor/Kareem! That's a big win for the memory book. And a pool view, lucky dog, at V/P. Keep the wins coming @MikeOPensacola !

    Breakfast at Grand Lux at the V. I never knew about the buffet for breakfast which was perfect for my need of lots of fruit. I got nine hours of much needed sleep last night. Getting ready for the WC game, just have to find a fun place to watch it which should pose no problem. :feedme: :peace: :beer:

    Yes. I'm assuming Pensacola in your user name is Pensacola Florida? I grew up on the Emerald Coast and lived in Pensacola for 6 years.

    Awesome trip so far, so many great pictures. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THERE!

    Was that a salad you got with your burger yesterday, and if so did you ask for it with nothing but lettuce or is that how it came? Seems odd to serve someone a bowl of lettuce.

    Very cool you got to see and chat a bit with Kareem. My only Vegas celebrity encounter thus far has been Jay Leno.

    Had a grrrrreat time with @topcard today. We gambled about eight straight hours doing the grand tour of downtown. Did much better today than last night; stopped the bleeding with a win made up of lots of smallish session wins. Played a lot of BJ, Freebet BJ, UTH and VP. Lunch at Seigels and slices at Pop-Up-Pizza.

    Didn’t make a bet on WC game (didn’t like the lines) but what a game. Rooting for England, for sure, but it’s difficult not to admire what Croatia has done. The final vs. France should be great.

    Not a lot of pics today due to all the time at the tables.

    @topcard gave me two chips for my collection. A 50 center from the Riv and another from a long closed riverboat casino. Thanks Top!!

    Had a really fun day with a really cool VMBer. Tomorrow will be a strip walk with some pool time.

    For the record it looks like they’ve made marked progress on Resorts World, I’ll post some pics tomorrow during my strip walk.

    Fun day in Vegas with a decent win is a win-win. Off to dinner and some light slot play. Hopefully I’ll be able to post some decent slot win pics from tonight. Till then......

    B&B was excellent in every respect. I asked my waitress for a recommendation for something light and she delivered. The grilled quail accompanied by a nice Pinot Grigio with Caramel Bonet for desert was delicious.
