    Loved the report and pictures. It seemed to me from your TR you gave them more than 3.5hrs of play at NYNY. It seems to me that table play tends to be subjective and the dealers and "pit bosses" don't keep an accurate account. That suite was awsome, I loved the balcony.

    Great report Beejay, I remembered your baaaad incident at the GN from your post on the other board because that happened on my birthday. Yeah, I know what the h am I doing in SLC instead of Vegas on my B-day! What a bunch of jokers they are at the GN. By your account they were really trying to put the screws to you with the bogus payoffs. To make it even worse the pit critter even tried as well !!!.

    Anyway, loved to read of your high rollings (by my standards) and thanks for sharing.
    Sam

    awesome TR, I enjoyed the read with a nice glass of wine and some pretzels. :haha:

    I can't believe I found a fellow 17 player. Last time I was in Vegas in June I had just lost a small fortune at BJ and I strolled by the roulette and couldn't resist throwing some money down on my lucky number 17 and it paid off! I will always use my number 17 from now on.

    Glad you had a great trip and your luck got turned around!!

    Thanks for the report, BJ! Glad to hear you came home a winner.

    "Imaginary bluetooths..." Hilarious.

    a great read and it sucks that the dumba$$ roulette dealer couldn't do the math, you're $50 tip was quite generous considering he deserved to be stiffed.

    I'm only 1/2 way through and that TR is awesome! I hope I can remember the details from my trip coming up in January as well as you did from yours. If I can manage to keep my hands on cards and chips instead of beers and cigs maybe I'll have a shot at it... :)

    Great TR...Thanks my fellow Chicagoian...well, I used to be at least.. South Subs now...LOL

    I know that part of town and if anyone is offended by it being called a "Ghetto" then change it by getting your ass off the couch and doing
    something about it...instead of getting offended when it's called what it
    is! If someone from there is actually reading this it's because they either
    car-jacked a vehicle with a internet-ready laptop in it or they just stole
    someones laptop...they didn't pay for it. Enough about that.

    Anyways, hands down the best money you put down was when you paid
    to buy and ship those gifts to your wife, it may not seem like it at the time
    but, Man....thats going to pay off BIGTIME in the long run :thumbsup:

    just went to The Hangover, which was being filimed during this trip and I mentioned in my trip report walking right near a scene, they ended up having that scene at the very end of the movie.

    Beejay,

    trying to access pictures from that trip and they are not posted on that link anymore. Maybe a new link can be added for those of us who just now got to read the report. Also I am interested in your review of the movie, "Hangover"

    Thanks
