    Only true degens play VP on a break from a poker tourney.

    I like it!

    Out before the dinner break, ran my set of 9’s into a set of K’s and got slow rolled.

    Played around the Wynn for a bit and got owned by buffalo. But, got a lot of it back at Cleo 2

    Ford already ate, so I’m at the bar at sushisamba with an ichiban, the wagyu gyoza, and some seared wagyu.

    The gyoza remains one of my favorite dishes in Vegas.

    "What a drag it is getting older...."

    As it's morning once again, the morning check is complete- still no glitter and no one else in my bed. So far, so good.

    At this point I am determined to make it to midnight tonight. I haven't yet, and that's sad. Also want to try to hit a few different places, as I feel this trip has not had nearly enough random wandering.

    Last night I came back to the Mirage after sushisamba to find out that Ford had tried the gummies. 3 of them to be exact. I knew it was interesting when he texted me "I can feel my teeth".

    He briefly joined me for a drink at the sports bar, and finally hit some quads (his first of the trip, was a hell of a drought). But, he couldn't actually see the cards anymore, so he went up to bed. I decided to swing by and try one of these gummies myself.

    I have no idea how he took 3. An hour later, and I couldn't actually remember my name. Around 11, decided I was going to close my eyes for a couple of minutes.... Next thing I new, it was 6:30 in the morning

    Vpfree2 shows the best games. It doesn’t show all of them. I’m sure they have quarter vp at the bar. It’s iust probably a 96-97 percent payback game not worthy of listing

    Yardbird got brunch. Chicken and waffles. So good

    A little rough is probably the best description. Apparently he went the wrong way on the elevator at one point, and woke up on his bed, fully clothed, at 4:30 this morning. At least he was by himself.

    Palazzo. The escalators leading down from sushisamba. Made of recycled trash apparently.

    Enjoying the report! It has been 3 or 4 years since I had a Verbena. I think I should go get another. I had my first sidecar in Vegas, maybe I need to try the cable car next! Keep the wins coming!

    It’s been a rough run since brunch. Played at Venetian and mirage for a bit. Ford is going to get a massage at the spa, and I’m heading for my first downtown adventure. MSS, here I come!

    Sheldon keeps things tight at the Venetian, tough to win there.

    Despite what I may have said last night, the fried chicken skins may now be my favorite dish in Vegas.
