    Awesome report! As always, loved the pics!
    Sorry you took a beating in the tournaments. Seems like a lot of losses came on the river.
    I aint seen a beatin like that since someone stuck a banana in my pants and turned a monkey loose.

    Yeah, I got it in good most of the time but got sucked out on the river. At Mgm the last night I shouldn’t of called that double all in, except we had been down to 5 handed for a bit. Had I known we would be combining tables a hand later, I would of folded. But had that not happened I might not of hit the Harley slot bonus, so who knows.

    But, I just like playing so that’s why i do tourneys. I think next trip I am going to try cash and see how that goes.

    Thanks for the report.
    Is Poker the usual objective or do you play other table games or machines?

    Poker is my primary objective. I also play slots in between tournaments. I used to play blackjack but haven't took much lately because it's hard to find 3:2 for less than $25 on the strip usually.

    Thanks for the great report and pictures. Just wondering, getting such beautiful rooms comped, do you gamble that much? You pretty much post only poker results. No slot or video poker details or pictures besides the one of Harley Davidson. Sorry for the question, I would think that to get such great rooms, you would need to have hours of play. Thanks!!

    I pretty much only play slots in between poker or on the way to the strip etc. I don't ever just go and play hours of slots at a time. Probably the most has been a 1 hour session if I am winning, but I do more of 20 minute sessions. The past few years I have been going to Vegas 2 times per year, once for work and once for leisure. I think last year I went 3 times. My previous trip in April of 2018 I had about $4.3K coin in over a 6 day trip. This past trip I had about $6K coin in over a 5 day trip. in 2017 I had $11.5K total coin in. It would be interesting if MLIFE would show you the time you had your card in a machine as a fun fact/metric.

    I consider myself a low roller and think MLIFE has been generous to me with free rooms, specifically at Bellagio and Aria etc. We might make a family trip to Vegas over Christmas, and my current offer has 4 nights at any MGM property (except signature), only paying the resort fees. I also usually get $50 in RC and $40-$75 in Free Play depending on casino. I know those numbers are small to some on here, but based on my play I think they are good.

    Thanks for posting. Pictures were great. I booked Park MGM for my next trip to give it a try, but after this I'm close to moving it to Vdara again. I really liked staying there on my last trip.

    Thanks for your reply Fligster!! That is awesome for getting such rooms and suites for that level of play. I have been with Total Rewards for years, my December trip coming up will be my 5th trip this year, and coming from NYC is no easy feat. And I still don't get rooms like that.LOL Maybe it's time to switch to MLIFE and say goodbye to Caesars.:wave:

    The suite at Signature MGM, I paid like $100 for the night since I had already used by MLIFE offer for 4 nights at Vdara. A few years ago I was more Caesars, but could only get comp rooms at the lower end (Flamingo, Harrahs, etc) and then that tightened up. I always see how people say Caesars treats low rollers better for free rooms, but I have had the opposite experience, so have been doing MLIFE the past 2-3 years.

    I wanted to stay somewhere different, so I wasn't going to try Park MGM this last trip, but opted for Vdara, glad I did. The front of Park MGM was still all messed up and you have to walk down a road etc to get to the hotel from the strip. Maybe I will try once everything is done.

    We walked through ParkMGM while we were at Aria in early September. I agree - I'd avoid it like the plague until all the work is done. Vdara was a solid choice.
