    I just noticed that your title says. "Semi" live .... if that was semi live ... you would have to be streaming video real time to make it any live'er(not sure that is a word). Anyway, great report. Thanks

    WOW Tbone! I just read all 20 pages of your "Semi-live" trip report! You sir wrote an amazing report. One of the best reports I have ever read on this forum. Your pictures and updates were extremely impressive. I also have an iPhone 6+, but don't recall it taking pictures as clear as yours, it could be the operator though. I'll give it another try when I arrive in 7 days, and hope to have the luck of the Irish with me on VP on St. Paddy's Day, and maybe get to enjoy my own cigar. :)

    Thanks again Sam, Riders and Matty, it was actually really fun to do and I look forward to doing another one in 6 weeks. Riders and Matty, hope you kill it on your trips! Bring home that bacon brothers! Matty, the 6+ is great for photos, I think you will do fine. On thing I noticed is as expected it struggles in low light and excessive light so I try to make sure my aim is with the sun or light to my back, sometimes that means moving around the subject a bit. But in the casinos it is tough to control the light, so I just shoot and hope for the best LOL. Thanks again guys

    TBone-

    As everyone has said, EVERYONE, fantastic TR! It's the first one I've read, as I am new to this board, but like you, I hope to contribute and doing it "semi-live" would be fun! Thanks for allowing us to sneak into your luggage and come along for the ride...

    Here's to Good Fortune for Us All,

    MrsFuri

    What an incredible report with all the up, downs, near Royal Flushes and then 2 Royal Flushes! Tbone I am in awe of your dedication and hard work to document and post on your trip and appreciate it. All the pics and details have me wishing my trip in May was starting tomorrow. Thanks man!

    Yep, I am Love Super Times Pay...... a fun game if you're winning but a real bankroll sucker if you're not. My best hit so far (January, 2013) was getting aces w/k on the center line with a 5X multiplier for a cool $10K!!! I about fell off my chair..... and taking it home from Wynn as we were leaving that morning. LOL I LOVE STP....... So no, you're definitely not playing too much video poker. :)

    Yes, how sweet is that hit! Great Picture! Man I have a love hate relationship with that game, I always get nothing when that multiplier comes up, but it always lures me back in thinking this is the time, LOL I always imagine being dealt your hand with the multiplier :) someday!

    Glad you liked it VegasBob! For me, I alway start a three day trip with $6,000 to $8,0000 and have a reserve in a checking account for gambling that we add to, that I can tap during a trip and have had to sometimes. You have to remember I do play craps as well and depending on the state of the br will buy in for $500 or $1,000 so some of it goes for that. Looking over my spreadsheet, and only counting when I pay single line ddb vp it seems I can get buy on $1,1,00 - $1,400 a day, but there is many hours in that play, it averages about 6-7 hours based on the times given by the gamble tracker I use.

    So depending on how long you like to play, I am not sure how best to decide on a Bank roll as it depends on time and game I guess. But I hope the above info helps you get a gauge of what might work.

    Thanks for checking out the report and hope you hit a $1 Royal!!

    Dude, thanks so much for a thoughtful complete answer! It was way more than I expected. I hit my first Royal the first time I played so its all been downhill from there:)

    Superior trip report! Great pics and very clear! Thanks for taking the time out of your day to take us along on the journey. I really felt like I was there, just went through all 40 pages and it was very enjoyable. This is a good example of a fantastic trip report! Kudos!

    PS- Im surprised you didnt like B&B as much as other places. I thought they made a very good burger, top 5 in my book.

    No problem! Maybe it is just us but we seem for some reason to get royals in bunches then long droughts. They will come with play, so if it has been a while, hopefully you see several at the D in 45 Days!

    Thanks, glad it was so enjoyable. Ya know the burger was good and juicy, and thinking later on it, it was a good burger. And funny enough thinking later on where I thought was better I only thought Holsteins was better and could not think of another burger in Vegas I had that was much better, so right now it is top 2 out of two that I remember LOL. Hope it does not throw others off from trying it as everything was good including the apps just was expecting more from the burger itself I think.

    Thanks again for the attaboy on the report !
