    Hi everyone. I'm glad I found this board. Everyone is soo much nicer than on Reddit.

    I'm a 31 y/o woman, married to a 32 y/o woman :kiss:. We are both Vegas nerds, and pretty much in-synch with what we like to do. We're mostly in it for gambling & eating at foodie restaurants :feedme:. Also like pool, spa, salon, shows, and whatever else. Casino math is fun (before 10pm) :hmmm:.

    Strip favs: I'm an Encore fanatic, she dreams of Cosmopolitan :rolleyes:, we both like Aria
    Downtown favs: Downtown Grand & Golden Gate
    Guilty pleasures: NYNY, pitch games with Hawaiians at California
    Vegas peeves: party kids at my table, double on the 12 in the field, Cosmo's $15/25 mins, casinos that are loud during the day :mad:
    Favorite games: craps, pai gow tiles
    Quote: "Life is too short to bitch about 6:5" — me

    Our next trip is late December, over Christmas. If you'll be around and would like to meet, send me a message. :wave:

    Welcome to the board! I strongly agree with only the double pay on 12, won't even play the field with that

    When the strip casinos went 6:5 it was like getting punched in the stomach. But making peace with that is the way I still get to enjoy playing blackjack. Plus ... the margin was too low on $5-10 at 3:2 anyway, considering the overhead of strip properties. I'd rather have $5-10 at 6:5 than $25 at 3:2, EV be damned. Double on the 12 is just a sour taste in my mouth. Otherwise I like the field.

    I hang out on Reddit a lot too, but I love lurking here. Yes, everyone is nicer here, especially because the mods banned politics talk :D

    I’m a Downtown devotee but I’m quite comfortable at Cosmopolitan. I like their video poker but 15 dollar craps is too rich for me. Glad you found your way to VMB!

    Welcome to the Board! I play craps and vp. If we end up hitting LV at the same time I'd love to play at a table with you and your wife. Loooove craps!

    Welcome! By the way, if you love math, you have to realize there isn't a large difference in theoretical loss per hour on a $15 table versus a $10 table, right?

    Welcome to the boards.

    You may not have read some of my replies. :wink2:

    Do what I do and search for empty tables or maybe just one or two players.

    Just started practicing with pai gow tiles. Seems like a game to keep ones attention and not get bored.
    Definitely not a game one wants to play while drinking.

    I love it. It's kinda great for casino nerds. Unfortunately it's rarely offered, and usually expensive.
    Wynn has it for $50-100, and will accommodate at $50 any time I've asked, since the table is always empty. Paris has it at $25-50. I've heard Palace Station has it at a mere $10. Somehow I don't think this game will be around in 15 years. Every time I've played the table has been empty.
