    Wife and I 8/31-9/5, focus on trip reports, Do a final checklist on any food,drink, freeplay coupons/groupons, head to the liquor store to stock up on nips for plane, ( 7 hour flight for us ) pick some in flight videos/music, Keep counting your bankroll and find ways to add to it. Have a Yardsale this weekend or sell on Craigslist etc.:thumbsup: Do a little LIT excercise this weekend (Liver in Training) As for myself will be either at Gustavs bartop or taking down the Cosmo at the sportsbar along with NFL wagering

    Liver in trainning is exactly what im doing. I also read on here to hydrate like hell days before you go so ive been crushing water at work and some beers at night at home.

    PPhold id love to play some BJ, but ive read your reports before I couldnt hang at your level. $25 table is about as high as I go. But who knows, maybe by Friday ill be up $2k and ready to dive into the $50-$100 tables

    Hydrate like hell, yes. And if you missed the pedialyte suggestion on the boards I suggest that too. Either take some of the powdered mixes with ya or grab some liquid at one of the drug stores there. It works like a champ with the morning after recovery

    We should approach the Pedialyte company to pay to sponsor this forum.

    That's funny. It probably gets more mentions here than in its originally intended application's forums!

    Sorry Bossplayer, don't want to hog this thread and start a pedialyte discussion, but how much does one drink in 1 take, a whole bottle? And when do you drink it? When you get home from drinking, or before you go?

    if you find a 3-2 blackjack table with a $25 min I'll join you there but i only find $100 min on 3-2. Since you have a head start just be up a few chocolates and we can hit the $100 min tables.

    either that or I'll ask the Pit to see if they will let you play red and green if i play more then the MIN.


    Good luck. Just Hit the Pool for me. I miss going every trip.

    All the BJ tables at Aria are 3-2. $25 and under are usually CSM. $50 and up are shoe.

    Im not the expert in this area, but i think you mix it with at least 16oz of water maybe even 24 oz and then take it after a night of drinking before you go to bed along with pain reliever of choice. I like Motrin. And in the morning you should be in better shape than hung over that's for sure. Of course crushing 24oz of liquid before bed means you'll be up in a few hours using the bathroom, that just gives you another opportunity to drink some more pedialyte or take more Motrin if need be.

    Ill have to wait and see how my trip goes before committing to $50/hand. I hate CSM as well. If I come over to Aria to play Friday it wouldnt be until late in the night. I have show tickets Friday at 8:30pm and its our last night so by the time I shake the "others" it might be 1 or 2am. You usually still up then?

    Surprisingly when I was at MGM in june I found a couple 3-2 non CSM tables that were $15 min. If I remember correctly they were by the players club booth.
